This movie is an undiscovered gem,a sword and sandal adventure that came late in the genre but stands out as one of the very best.Kirk Morris,a great and undervalued peplum star plays Heracles who is washed ashore in Egypt and becomes involved in an adventure with some desert nomads which leads him to a mysterious kingdom in the sand that turns out to be Atlantis.Here things take a surreal turn as Herc battles a mad sorcerer,ray-guns and an army of blue-clad robotic warriors in a crescendo of action.Much of this movie's running time is taken up with Herc slugging it out with these warriors in some entertaining fistfights until his nomad friends arrive and enter the fray using evil looking metal balls attached to chains.I really wish that I had seen this movie as a kid because it would certainly have added spice to my cinematic upbringing which was laced with movies of this type.A footnote:THE CONQUEROR OF ATLANTIS resembles "Atlantis",the closing episode of the third season of "Hercules:The Legendary Journeys" and may perhaps have been an influence.
