Another reviewer mentioned that they love the Italian "sword and sandal" films because they feature monsters in rubber suits and bad dubbing. Certainly we have the former here, though I did not think the dubbing was all that bad. (One wonders if we will ever see these films released the "right" way, with subtitles and all that.)
What amuses me is that this was part of the "sons of Hercules" package. I understand that that term could be used very loosely, and even the intro says the men featured were chosen by Hercules because of their greatness and were not actual sons. But what is funny here is that Perseus was actually Hercules' grandfather -- so his grandfather is a "son"! (And technically, the name should be Heracles. Why we use the Roman name Hercules but keep the other characters Greek is beyond me.)
