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

The famous "With this axe, I rule!" line at the end of the movie is actually the title of a Robert E. Howard short story about Kull, which was rejected by Howard's then primary publisher, "Weird Tales" magazine. He later rewrote and sold the story as "The Phoenix on the Sword", the first Conan story, which makes the item that this project was initially developed to be a "Conan" film somewhat ironic.

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.
