"When the ancient gods were petty and cruel, and they plagued mankind with suffering, only one man dared to challenge their power – Hercules"
19 June 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

All of the world's fires are going out. Who's responsible? If you said anybody but Hera, welcome to your first Hercules TV movie. The third of the five made-for-TV Hercules movies starring Kevin Sorbo that preceded the Hercules: The Legendary Journeys series. This one has Hercules and Deianeira (Tawny Kitaen) trying to restart the world's fire while lighting one of their own. This Deianeira is not the same one from the last movie, played by Renee O'Connor, although there are certainly similarities that suggest a connection. Both women stand up for the mistreated and both banter with Hercules. The difference is that with busty Kitaen there's an added sexual attraction with Sorbo's Hercules that was missing before. Personally I still prefer the ROC version, for a variety of reasons. Tawny's hot but she doesn't do feisty or spunky well.

The Hercules series, and these movies, were fun adventure stories. Very simple with few pretensions of being more. Nothing wrong with that. If you like to shut your mind off for awhile and just enjoy some good old-fashioned escapism, you should have a good time with this. The Prometheus stuff is pretty cool-looking and one of my favorite parts from any of these movies. Plus this one features Hercules vs Zeus...sort of.
