Hercules Goes Kielbasa
13 December 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The eternal Hercules in this film has gone way beyond his usual time and place in ancient Greece and is now helping Poland free itself of Mongol invaders in the 12th century. Mark Forest is the star of this peplum epic, Hercules Against The Barbarians.

Poland is having its dynastic problems, there is a king in exile, but there is a princess with a closer claim on the throne. She was hidden as an infant in a peasant village and not told of her lineage the better to protect her from the Mongols. Genghis Khan is having his problems as well with a pair of sons who both want to succeed dad and one of them is not too squeamish on what he has to do to take the throne.

Which is when Hercules enters the picture and sorts out everyone's problems. In this film besides human combat with the Khan's champion wrestler, Hercules has to defeat a really big snake and also wrestle a crocodile. Now this one had me floored because I do not think crocodiles are native to Poland or any other part of Europe. Still it was a good scene for the mighty Hercules.

My question would be did he get any kielbasa while visiting Poland?
