At least the theme song is catchy.
27 September 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

But that still doesn't make up for the rest of the film. The American TV title is "Fire Monsters Against the Son of Hercules" but there aren't very many monsters in the film. Oh sure, there's a couple throughout, but it's more about 2 warring tribes than anything else. Perhaps there were more monsters in the Italian release, or if they were only really a sub-plot to the main action. You'll like the theme song if nothing else.
