Trivia

The movie was supposed to be a star vehicle for Lou Ferrigno - the same "Hercules in New York" (1969) was for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Despite being incredibly successful as a bodybuilder (as Schwarzenegger was), and despite the fact "Hercules" was a bigger box office hit than "Hercules in New York", Ferrigno never became an A-list action hero.

Yes, a kid's movie
5 May 2002 | by jswravenSee all my reviews

George Littman's comment (12 Aug 1999) really sums it up best: This is a kid's movie.

I actually remember going with my dad to see this movie it's opening week. I was a whopping 6 years old. Wow, did I think Hercules was one coolest movies. Even the silly metallic robots (what's the Greeek word for Evil Robot?) were cool.

Would I watch it on late night cable for old-time's sake? Perhaps. Would I ever pay money for this? Maybe when I have a 6-year old of my own...
