The Arena (Naked Warriors)
Pam Grier and Margaret Markov reteamed a year after Black Mama, White Mama for this similarly crowd-pleasing exploitation effort. They play Roman slaves who eventually rebel against their male oppressors. Mixing elements from the Italian peplum and the Filipino women's prison movies, The Arena also adds some po-faced feminist theory while still managing to exploit its scantily-clad stars. Italian film regulars Lucretia Love and Rosalba Neri look strangely out of place in a movie filmed in their own country, but fans of drive-in movies should be pleased. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"it drags on after a while, and it's a little light in the skin quotient, with only a few scattered scenes here and there. But dammit, it's half-naked slave girls duking it out with swords. That's gotta be worth 83 minutes of your time"
