Did You Know?

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
Author: Animus from United States

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.
