King Minos and sorceress Adriana plan to conquer the world with her magic and his giant robots. To make matters worse, they also plan to sacrifice Hercules' love interest Cassiopeia. Hercules teams up with sorceress Circe and tries to save both his girl and the world.
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.

When Hercules throws the rock tied to the rope out into space, you can see a wire hooked to the rock as it pulls it out into space. See more »
Could I just see it grow a little bit? It would mean a great deal to me.

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...
