Rockin' Babylon to its foundations
5 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

After the King of Abyssinia (Petri) is double-crossed by the three rulers of Babylon (Line, Lorenzon, Altamura), he enlists the aid of the mighty Hercules (Lupus, billed as 'Rock Stevens') to overthrow Babylon and capture a Queen (Polani) hiding amongst serfs in the city, to be his bride. Polani also happens to be Hercules' girlfriend, leading to further treachery as Petri seeks to rub out Hercules once the Queen has been delivered to safety.

Lupus is a more affable Hercules than most, a likable hulk who went on to co-star in the "Mission: Impossible" TV series in the late sixties. But my favourite part of this Herc episode is the appearance of German bombshell Helga Line. She's something special, and has a sizable role as the seductive and scheming sister, seeking to take the throne of Babylon that she reluctantly shares with her two brothers through an elaborate plan involving a massive underground winch system primed to literally tear the city apart.

All the elements are present with fierce battles, glorious colourful costumes and sets, heroism and tragedy, inane dialogue ("look our king is dead, let's surrender") and the usual array of villains and conspiracies to entertain fans of the genre. In terms of highlights, don't miss the scene in which Hercules is invited to fight with pretenders to his mantle and discovers that the fight has been fixed in his opponents' favour - pity the fool.
