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.
