In ancient Greece a race of evil aliens from the moon land on earth. For years they've terrorized the nearby city of Samar, demanding children for sacrifice. Now, the queen of Samar has made a pact with the moon men to conquer the world and become the most powerful woman alive. However, the residents of Samar, sick of all the chaos, cheer when the mighty Hercules shows up to put a stop to it all. Written by
Wow...that sandstorm sequence was rather long wasn't it?
Another in the Italian Hercule movies this time with another actor playing Herc and once again they at least get the casting right as he has the looks for the part. This one has a better plot than that of Hercules Unchained as it has Hercules trying to help this people who are living in a place where there children must be sacrificed to the creatures that live in the mountain of death. Why they need to sacrifice the kids and for what purpose is not really known...I don't think they are eating them or anything. Well Hercules comes to help, but the queen of this kingdom kind of works for the moon people so she tries her best to kill Herc every step of the way. The movie is not very good, but it does go at a rather fast pace, until one point near the end of the movie where it totally bogs down. You will feel you are watching the sandstorm sequence forever...it does not feel like it is going to end and you will swear the queen didn't take that long to get through it. Finally, Herc squares off against the moon people and quite frankly it is very anti-climatic.
