Storyline

Hercules is finally a happy family man with his wife Deianeira, two young sons Aeson and Clonus, daughter Ilea and in-living centaur Nessus. When a trickster lures men to fight -using a fake- Eryx the Boxer, they are slain, so Hercules is called and slays the giant, but to Zeus' disappointment loses his temper when Hera shows by a peacock feather to be behind it again, and wrecks her temple. Nessus grumbles he's tired of the Herc-idolatry. The next call for help is made by Iole, from a city where people are killed by the fume from an entrance to the underworld which opened the earth there. He goes, but when an old woman recognizes the pendant the messenger gave Deianeira, saying it proves she belongs to maidens trained so well in the art of seduction they can get any man in their power, she finally believes jealous Nessus' warnings not to trust her with Hercules; they catch up with him, but he convinces her to trust him, then Nessus tries to rape her and dies cursing Hera's failure to...

Hercules goes to the Underworld!
9 October 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the fourth pilot TV movie that jump-started the "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" TV series, where Hercules (Kevin Sorbo), now married with children, goes on a quest to save a village from an evil presence coming from underground, which turns out to be a portal to the Underworld.

The plot of the movie goes at a fast pace and is action-packed, full of Hercules vs. bad guys scenes and also full of adventures in a host of settings, including the plagued village, Hercules' home, the forests, Tarturus and the Elysian Fields. In addition to seeing the excitement of Hercules' unending adventures, there are also a nice touch of dramatic and heartfelt moments between Hercules and his family, mysterious suspense surrounding the cunning centaur and the unforgiving coldness of Hera's evil ways.

The New Zealand countryside setting is refreshing and the costumes are colorful and vibrantly done. The music score by Joseph LoDuca is very catchy and the acting is pretty spot-on, with a good dose of humor, though I don't quite get why Hades, God of the Underworld, is portrayed as a semi-geeky character wearing a white toga - not menacing or frightening at all!

Overall, it's another fun Hercules TV movie - good action and adventures!
