Spartacus, leader of the slave revolt against Rome, is dead. Yet his fight goes on. Long live the Son of Spartacus! Steve Reeves, the actor who took the sword-and-sandal genre on his massive shoulders and lifted it to prominence in the 1960s, stars in this spectacle widely considered to be among the best of the handsome star's tunic tales. Reeves plays Randus, a Roman officer whose duty in the Empire's eastern territory leads him to discover he is the son of the renowned slave hero. The discovery spurs him into action. By day, he remains an officer of Julius Caesar. By night, he secretly wears the helmet and wields the sword of his father, fighting to free slaves and leaving a scrawled "S" as a message to his Roman Pursuers. "If Rome is for slavery, then I am against Rome," the heroic liberator declares. But how long before his dual life is unmasked? Is Randus destined to suffer the same tortured fate as his father?
