Plepum & Sandals epics movies is really a special genre!!!
I must appreciate to Italian filmmakers and producer to keeping alive this great specific genre which was so hyped on Europe and latin America neither, this epics based on Greek mythology's characters, meanwhile those pictures were not properly to much faithful, not unusual they used to merge many times the characters on inaccurate period of time, this one they brings Gordon Scott a famous American actor to leading role due this body be bulky and brawny to portrait Hercules, it was clearly a small budge, in so many aspects, poor sets, a cheaper casting, bad makeup, the props as Hercules wearing an silly oversized helmet was too much, the battles were in slow paced, almost boring scenes, the screenplay has a lot of inconsistencies, the storyline about the Mycenaean people who really existed in the Greek's past is quite acceptable, anyway it can seems a contradiction, but despite a low rate gave by me I've really enjoy this genre, that was the very first piece of DVD bought to my huge DVD-Blu-Ray Collection, by the way, often these DVD available here in Brazil has a poor image mostly them VHS transfer onto DVD without any restoration!!!
First watch: 2004 / How many: 2 / Source: DVD / Rating: 5.5
