Overview

Gordon Scott portrays Glaucus, the son of the king of Pyras, who journeys to the neighboring kingdom of Mycene, which is ruled by the evil cult of the god Moloch. There he assumes the name of Hercules and distinguishes himself in the arena, becoming a trusted member of the household guard. This allows him to organize and lead a rebellion against the followers of the murderous Moloch, then against the monster himself. The acting and production values of this sword-and-sandal adventure film are above average, with very elaborate battle scenes involving far more than the usual number of extras, a large visual canvas, and an ambitious finale set in a maze of caverns in which two contending sets of gods use the character as their pawns. A rich score by Carlo Rustichelli also enhances the viewing of this lively, action-filled fantasy-adventure, although parents might want to keep younger viewers away from this movie, with its depictions of Moloch mutilating the beauty of the women sacrificed to him.
