Guilty Pleasure
18 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a part of the Scifi channel two part-four hour mini series and I must admit that I stayed up the second night to catch the second half. Like most other commentators, I must agree that it wasn't an Emmy award winning show or anything, however it was entertaining and light in spirit. The speeches that Hercules made were at times a bit too...how do I say...overwrought and cliché at times, but that can be forgiven because it's a made for TV movie. Another complain I had was that the older Hercules (Paul Telfer) was not a very good actor and his emotional scenes were really awkward to me. In any case, he was good eye candy. Overall I gave this series 7 stars just because I was kind of excited to see the second half of it and because I enjoyed the humanity of the drama that unfolded. There were no divine interventions (except one, but that's debate-able) and most of the excitement came from intrigue and plotting. Pretty cool take on a Greek myth.
