Sandstorm, guys, sandstorm
13 February 2002 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

Another film brought to me by MST3k. In my eyes, this film is a pale imitation to Steve Reeves' Hercules movies and has a very unclassical feel to it. Science fiction and greek mythology can be a brutal mixture as this movie shows. The plot is a fairly simple idea that is given the complicated treatment. I've watched the MST3k version several times and I still haven't picked it up that well. Something about the evil queen setting up her sister to die so that another dormant evil queen can live again. Sacrifices are made to the moon men as a cheap knock off to the Minotaur legend. Sergio Ciani aka Alan Steele gives an acceptable performance as the title character but looks too much like he should be Steve Reeves' younger brother. He has second string written all over him. The characters try to deliver their dialogue in the classic epic style but it definitely sounds goofy with the subject matter. The evil queen also comes off as a second string version of Omphale from Hercules Unchained. The scenes where she drugs Hercules into liking her also seem lifted from Hercules Unchained seemingly verbatim. The moon men aren't very gifted monsters but still look kind of cool, if you like slow moving rocks with hands. Plenty of fight scenes keep the movie going until we hit the endless sandstorm scene, which grinds the plot to a complete halt. A very forgettable Herc adventure.
