Trivia

According to an interview with director Luigi Cozzi, the movie wasn't planned as a sequel for Hercules (1983). He was asked by the producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus to film scenes for I sette magnifici gladiatori (1983) 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 »

So Bad Its Good!
26 October 2005 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Boy, do I strongly disagree with the other commentators on this movie! This is a terrific example of a film that is so over the top, so loaded with wacky ideas, so determinedly wrong, that it is thoroughly entertaining. The outrageous dialog, deadpan or hammy acting and glowing tinker toy special effects alone make it worth watching; add outlandish costumes, a story that makes no sense, and references to (one might uncharitably say rip-offs of) everything from "King Kong" to "Star Wars", and how can you lose? When I watch a sword and sandal movie, I want beautiful babes, a musclebound hero, and monsters: "The Adventures of Hercules" has all of this and so much more! Lou Ferrigno may not be Steve Reeves or Gordon Scott, but as Hercules, he's vastly preferable to Kevin Sorbo. So, I have to give this unacknowledged classic an "8". If you liked "Hercules Against the Moonmen you'll love this!
