Goofs

When Hercules rescues Cassiopea from the pit, Ariadne appears in the entrance, spear in hand. Herc throws his sword and she falls dead in the doorway. In the next scene as Herc and Cassiopea are leaving, they walk right through the area where Ariadne fell but her body is gone. The following scene is a closeup of Ariadne's body quickly decomposing and disappearing. See more »

Quotes

Bad in ways you cannot possibly imagine...
26 December 2004 | by (Manassas, Va) – See all my reviews

This movie is bad...but not so bad that you don't enjoy it. In fact, your eyes are glued to the screen in anticipation of what bizarre twist they are going to perform next on Greek/Roman mythology. Robot hydra and robot centaurs that shoot lasers are simply too amazing to be missed. The writer of this film must've been autistic and simply wrote the first thing that came into his head. It is DELIGHTFUL! Certainly, if you cannot sit through a bad movie, you should avoid this one; however, as bad movies go, this is an epic...a mighty effort of special effects, bad writing, poor dialog and what looks like a single costume shared by every female member of the cast. No woman in this movie wears anything substantial below the belt...even Dedalus, who for reasons unknown, is a woman in this film.

If your children see this movie, please remember to tell them that the movie has absolutely NOTHING to do with the actual myth of Hercules, Minos, Circe or even Ursa Major (the great bear).
