Ator the Invincible 2 / Ator l'invincibile 2 (1984)

0.5 out of 5

Somebody, Joe D'amato probably, came to the decision that what the world needed was a sequel to Ator the Invincible. However that certain someone, Joe D'amato probably, was wrong. Nevertheless, having taken the decision to make a sequel, this created an opportunity to improve on the original movie. This did not happen, in fact the film is, to say the least, a major step backwards for the fantasy muscle-man franchise.

Ator l'invincibile 2 features a hang glider, a clip from Where Eagles Dare and some stock footage of a nuclear explosion.

Miles O'Keeffe is complicit in this crime against cinema and the film ends with a monologue about world peace, or something, that is reminiscent of the lyrics to the Dangermouse theme song. Risible.
