Goofs

When Hercules and Maytha first meet, Maytha says how he never saw a white man before, and Hercules remarks about how the Incans are a people he's never heard of before. Despite both of them being totally ignorant of each other's cultures, they speak the same language and have no trouble communicating this to each other. See more »

Another history setback!
6 August 2005 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

History takes another setback as Hercules finds himself in the land of the Incas, shipwrecked he meets the true king of the Incas who has been deposed by a tyrant luckily for him they all speak perfect English or dubbed Italian if you prefer,very badly filmed and acted even by Italian standards and the music score just does not fit in with the film,check the sacrifice ritual dance and you will see what I mean, the only redeeming feature is the colourful Inca costumes,very poor all round,curious also to find out that our hero played by the handsome Mark Forest only took these parts to finance his opera singing!, something he still does to this day.
