Storyline

Hercules is provoked till he has no other choice then fight Gargan, a giant who had absolutely no quarrel with him- and decks the mountain of aggression easily. Then the last survivor of a group of messengers, killed off one by one by Hera, dies after imploring him to come end her rule of terror in the 'lost city of Troy', which his father Zeus, who is once more unwilling to extend any more tangible help, discloses can only be found with the 'one true compass' last seen in the possession of queen Omphale. On his searching for her he frees -then against her will- Deianeira, the eager victim about to be sacrificed to the river god as virgin in the prime of her fertility to end a drought. He battles passed the 48 sons of the gate guardian and arranges to be sold at the annual slave market to the queen, who only wants him in her bed. After dealing with some protection racketeers and the devoted, happy palace slave Waylin he finally gets her late husbands compass from Omphale. He sets out ... Written by KGF Vissers

Hercules showcases his power!
24 September 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the second pilot TV movie that jump-started the "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" TV series, where Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) sets on a quest to find the lost city of Troy and end Hera's evil grip on the place. Joining Hercules on the mission is the Princess Deianeira (Renee O'Connor), whom Hercules rescued from being sacrificed to the river god.

The plot of the movie goes at a faster pace than the previous entry and showcased Hercules' powers more, pitting him against a giant and later against a horde of Hera's minions and city rascals. In addition to seeing the excitement of Hercules and Deianeria's adventures to the lost city, there are also spiritual elements in the movie, including the mysterious spirit being that has been following Deianeria. Also, as an added treat to the adventures, there is a thrilling sequence where Hercules and Deianeira try to escape after being eaten by a gigantic sea serpent.

Like the previous movie, the New Zealand countryside setting is refreshing and the costumes are colorful and vibrantly done. The music score by Joseph LoDuca is very upbeat and appealing and the acting is pretty spot-on, with some good chemistry between Sorbo and O'Connor and a good dose of humor.

The movie does drag a little towards the middle, but other than that, this is a fun TV movie.

Grade B+
