It is a Gem of the Italian mythological movies
11 July 2006 | by juliodennisSee all my reviews

I watched these movie like 23 years ago ( I'm thirty right now ), on the local TV stations from my country. I remembered that every Saturdays and Sundays at evening time, the Italian movies about Greek mythological heroes, the spaghetti westerns, the second world war movies and others more, were popular among Salvadorians. It was the time from our Civil War period, so the people enjoyed watching these movies to avoid the sad story of our country. On those years I knew those actors like MARK FOREST, STEVE REEVES, KIRK MORRIS and GORDON SCOTT, who played most of the movies of HERCULES and also the movies of HERCULE'S SON, MACYSTE. These particular movie, I enjoyed because the story took place during the INCA CIVIL WAR period ( obviously there is an inaccuracy in history, because in that period of time, the INCAS were conquered by the Spanish troops under FRANCISCO PIZARRO), but instance of being visited by the bloodiest conqueror, the Greek Gods allowed to HERCULES to arrive to Peruvians shores after being the only survivor from a shipwrecked, and he helped to prince MAYTHA ( role performed by GULIANO GEMMA) and his courageous Incas to defeat the tyrannical king Juascar, who have King Atahualpa being imprisoned, to seize the power against MAYTHA. The movie finished with a great battle with the OLD CUZCO city surrounding the fighters. I hope one day that these movies should be in DVD, I will be one of the first customers to buy it.If someone reads the comment, and will like to share his nice experiences abouth these movies, I will be cool to receive your comments in my e-mail.
