The Seven Magnificent Gladiators (1983)
Like the title implies, it's a ripoff of Seven Samurai (1954) and The Magnificent Seven (1960) but in a gladiatorial era. The leather-fetish-clad figure pictured third in the orderly queue on the cover is the antagonist that Ferrigno and his posse must vanquish, a half-god son of a sorceress.
It's a good-natured romp with scenes stitched haphazardly together and dubbing that's bad but not as atrocious as I'd feared it would be.
