Trama e commenti: - «Un guerriero preistorico deve salvare la Terra da una specie di bomba atomica primitiva chiamata "nucleo geometrico".

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - «...The film was released in theaters as Ator the Invincible and later as Ator, the Blade Master.

Mila is pursued by Zor's soldiers, and is wounded by them, but continues to stagger towards Ator's home. At last she arrives, and Ator uses his medical knowledge to heal her wound. She then is able to convince him she is the daughter of Akronas, and that her father is in terrible danger. Mila, Ator, and Ator's Asian assistant Thong (Chen Wong) begin the journey back to Akronas' castle, facing a variety of dangers along the way, including a group of cannibals, another group determined to sacrifice them to their god — which is a huge snake — and other soldiers.
