Hercules 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This film was responsible for the slew of sword and sandal films that followed in the aftermath.It also put Steve Reeves,a well known body builder who won every coveted title at the time,into the international spotlight of filmdom.Probably under a more prestigious director or budget-inflated production,the film would have been on a par with other period piece epics such as Samson and Delihla or Ben Hur.Francisci however,creates a moody almost surreal atmosphere, with vibrant colors,on-location scenery and limited effects sans CGI,that gives the feel of a larger budgeted film.Reeves,who tooled around Hollywood in various TV appearances and small budget(even an Ed Wood vehicle)films after his body building carreer, gives a very likable and more than capable performance in the title role(with a dubbed voice that sounded very similar to his own).There have been other Hercules films made since this one,but I guarantee this is the one you will remember.This is great fun and an exciting adventure that is terrific for the whole family.
