Mythology and history on film, as best as it can be considering the year it was filmed.
21 October 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I grew up with all the Steve Reeves Hercules movies and every time I see them memories live again. Acting, script, photography are not the best, but intentions make it for any shortcomings. In the 60's Steve Reeves was always the best choice for this kind of movies which rescue for the common viewer Greek Mythology in images, since reading these days on those topics is something of a dead matter for most people. Haven't heard lately anyone opining on Homer's books. Let's not forget that history is strongly involved and though historical events are quite distorted there's epic action along with mythological figures (Achilles) and real people (Ulyses). Although it can't be compared to the recent 2004 Brad Pitt Troy, it is more close to some real facts such as the death of Paris in situ and fact is that Paris never made it. At least, not alive. A must see for anyone who wants digested Greek Mythology and History, but why on earth ALL THE HERCULES MOVIES ARE RELEASED ON DVD IN 1.33:1 (pan and scan) AND NOT IN THEIR 2.35:1 ORIGINAL FORMAT? The magnitude of the battles and other details are unfortunately lost. It is an unfair mutilation which studios should and must avoid and repair in new DVD editions. Can one imagine Ben-Hur in 1.33:1 format? English dubbing is alright but having the option of Italian audio along with subtitles won't do any harm. I wonder if studios bother to read what their DVD buying customers have to say about the quality of their products.
