Really strange rubber monsters attacking badly dubbed actors, what more could you want? Billed in English as on of the "Sons of Hercules" films this is really the story or Perseus and his run in with the hydra. The legend was the basis for Clash of the Titans and was some of the last work by Ray Harryhausen. Given the choice between watching that all star yawner and this film I'll take this one every time. No, its not great, but its straight forward and honest in trying to do nothing more than entertain. Knowing that any film with Hercules in the title is nothing more than mental popcorn helps get through the rough spot, which this film has mostly avoided.
