When three traitorous goddesses steal seven magical thunderbolts with unearthly power, it falls to one man with the strength of one hundred to save the universe from eternal chaos and darkness: Hercules. As an Olympian array of monstrous villains line up to claim Hercules' head, our protagonist must summon every last ounce of his formidable strength to defeat them all, recover the thunderbolts, and take to the cosmos itself for one final battle with his arch-nemesis, King Minos.
Margie Newton found it difficult working on The Adventures of Hercules (1985) since she was acting in the film and L'ultimo guerriero (1984) simultaneously. She hardly slept since she was working on "The Final Executioner" in the day and "The Adventures of Hercules" in the night. She lost 10 pounds and became anorexic due to the strenuous shooting schedules. That said, she enjoyed working on both films and found them to be great experience for her. See more »
When Herc and Urania see the shield on the beach, it is only partially covered with sand and easily visible as they approach it. In the next scene Urania is bending down to uncover it and it is completely covered and not visible until she removes the sand and lifts it. See more »
More cheesy badly-dubbed greatness from Cannon. This sequel to the classic Hercules has our hero and his humongous pectorals out to recover Zeus' stolen thunderbolts. To do this he must fight guys in ghillie suits and creatures created with poor computer and stop-motion effects. A full day's work for Herc.
Lou Ferrigno is certainly a physical sight to behold and his stone-serious facial expressions at all times makes the movie that much more hilarious because it does not deserve to be taken seriously in the least. Unfortunately, sexy Sybil Danning does not return from the first movie but there are still some scantily-clad Italian babes to feast your eyes on. The special effects are cheap but charmingly so. Love the obsession with neon. The stop-motion Medusa appears to be made from Play-Doh. Lots of bad but quotable lines coming from voices that are clearly not those of the actors. Look, it's glorious garbage of a movie but there's a good deal of fun to be had laughing at it. I'll take unintended entertainment over no entertainment any day.
