'for the first time Jon Solomon has taken the ancient world and in this excellent book has examined its influence upon blockbuster movies...There is no academic distancing in this highly readable text. Solomon writes in a way which combines research and humour and his field of reference is huge, ranging from filmic art...to religion and its perception, battle strategy and special effects.' - Richard Edmonds, The Birmingham Post
