      Audience Member ** (out of four) Jack Palance plays Atilla the Hun as he tries to conquer the divided Roman Empire. But, two things mar his way...the beautiful Princess Pulcheria (Ludmilla Tcherina) and the fearless Marcian (Jeff Chandler). Can Palance stop the spread of christianity? What do you think? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member A Great Monumental Movie with a fantastic Battle, Great Reqisites, Great Actors and a fascinating Story it also shows how dumb are War and Destruction, how the Christinay has saved Lives and spread Peace before it turns around and take Lives and spread War and how dumb and superstitious Barbarians are they turn around even though they can conquest Rome and their Stoppers are unarmed Christians just of their Fear from their God Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member the best film of jack palance! though politically incorrect at some scenes, palance captured his audience in an enthralling portrayal of the scourge of god. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Typical Hollywood historical abomination but enjoyable nonetheless with Palance having a ball as the King Of The Huns. For all his faults though, Attila still has better qualities than the back-stabbing Romans and you cant help rooting for him.

      Variety Staff Variety Douglas Sirk's direction of the excellent script catches the sweep of the period portrayed without letting the characters get lost in spectacle. Jun 20, 2007 Full Review Derek Adams Time Out An immensely interesting though finally unsuccessful film. Mar 24, 2007 Full Review New York Times Customers planning to sneak out during these frothing soliloquies must cope with a musical sound track deafening enough to nail anybody down. Rated: 2/5 Mar 24, 2007 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: C Mar 21, 2013 Full Review TV Guide While certainly not a classic, the film is leagues above Hollywood's typical 'babes-and-bacchanals' biblical epics of the period. Rated: 3/4 Jun 20, 2007 Full Review Film4 Staff Film4 Sirk's fluid direction lift this refreshingly short epic above what most other directors would have done with the material.
