Storyline

A barbarian named Kull unexpectedly becomes a king after an old king (whom Kull has just killed in a battle) gives his crown to him. But direct heirs of a killed king, trying to topple Kull and regain the throne, bring an old witch-queen Akivasha back to life. Their plan backfires, however, as Akivasha is going to allow their lords - demons - to rule the kingdom. The only thing that can stop her now is a breath of the god Volka.

Trivia

One of the film's taglines is "Son of Conan". Although Conan and Kull were characters created by Robert E. Howard, Kull of Atlantis, in the original stories, came from pre-cataclysmic Atlantis c. 100,000 B.C and Conan the Cimmerian was from the ancient Hyborian-age, after the destruction of Atlantis and before the rise of the ancient civilizations. This means Kull came before Conan and the two characters are father and son and Conan's father was a Cimmerian blacksmith. See more »

Kevin Sorbo is Herc-Kull-es!
26 April 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ok ok, I know, you're not supposed to compare this movie to the Hercules series, but please, Sorbo's acting style is unchanged. Kull kills people in this movie and he's not a half-god, but that's where the differences end. This movie even has a Salmoneus-clone played (hilariously) by Harvey Fierstein. Watch it, enjoy it, but don't expect too much from it.
