well produced not heavy or action of beefcake--as these things go
18 June 2014 | by (French Polynesia) – See all my reviews

The setting and time is odd, It feels like Hercules is walking around nearly naked amid much later European armor wearing troops. Another thing that may or may not be true is that there are some beautiful shots of lots of extras storming the castle, but when we are usually with the principal actors we rarely see anything of this scope and or are on interior sets with poor fake skies. So I'm saying there may be stock footage being used here.

Regardless of this the sets are quite well made and the photography in 2:35 is also frequently impressive and the film has a good music score as well. The story is decent but it's not heavy on fighting or action for the most part. The 2 fight scenes with animals are pretty bad, with the pretty big snake, or really bad, with the floppy pillow they call an alligator. And yeah why is there an Alligator in Poland or did the Huns bring it from Mongolia with them? Wait there aren't any alligators there either.

But the basic story, more of a kind of romance amid the barbarians is good and the women sexy and Mark Forest gets to do some acting and doesn't do it too badly. Despite what may or may not be stock footage the outdoor photography is good as is the interior costuming and photography. The weak thing is those bad set build "exteriors."

Still this is a real movie and not a super cheap or shoddy entry in this genre, nor is it a kind of hidden treat for beefcake fans--be they men or women. Music score and production design is above average and there are a lot of well done sets.

Not typical in good ways but low on action overall and most of the action is in the final third of the film. Above average acting and casting in this one--the Mongols actually look like Mongols not Italians.

Can't say this is great. Can't say it's terrible either.
