Trivia

According to an interview with director Cozzi the movie wasn't planned as a sequel for Hercules (1983). He was asked by the producers Golan and Globus to film scenes for the nearly unwatchable "The seven magnificent gladiators" to save it. After they saw, what he filmed they asked him to write a story around the scenes and make a few more with Lou Ferrigno, not telling him that he was involved in a sequel for "Hercules" (1983).

Goofs

When Herc and Urania see the shield on the beach, it is only partially covered with sand and easily visible as they approach it. In the next scene Urania is bending down to uncover it and it is completely covered and not visible until she removes the sand and lifts it. See more »

Wondrously incoherent fantasy trip on acid
30 September 2011 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

The first "Hercules" (1983) by Luigi Cozzi was a completely incomprehensible psychedelic disjointed mess, unrivaled by any swords & sorcery outing at the time (though I have to admit Lucio Fulci's "Conquest" comes mighty close). In 1985 the unthinkable happens: "Hercules" gets a sequel. And fans of the first one will not be disappointed, because it delivers the same brand of incoherent over-the-top extravagant entertainment as the first film did. You'll be scratching your head numerous times once again with what all kind of adventures our muscular mythical hero gets into this time. Between all the mind-boggling shenanigans, a fairly simple plot can be spotted: The gods send Hercules (once again played by Lou "Hulk" Ferrigno) back to earth again, for he has to locate & reclaim the Seven Thunderbolts, which have been stolen by other more evil gods. Hercules never really has to search for them; he's simply lead on one "mission" after another, battling various creatures (amongst them some fierce & ridiculous-looking mud-zombie things and even one of the Gorgons, a sister of Medusa) alongside two beautiful babes. Every time he defeats a creature, he'll find one of the Seven Thunderbolts within. For some reason the villainous King Minos (William Berger, reprising his role from the first film) gets resurrected by the evil gods too, only to decide he wants those Seven Thunderbolts for himself. Or well, something like that. Or just see him blabbering on about science being the way of all things. The final battle between King Minos & Hercules (in space!) has to be seen to be believed (lots of flashy animated effects, including a giant gorilla vs. dinosaur). If I wouldn't know any better, I'd say both "Hercules" movies were conceived & produced under the influence of some very strong LSD, because that's what they look like: a wondrously cuckoo fantasy trip on acid. Italians making films in the '80s; you gotta love 'em.
