Storyline

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.

"Grow, Hercules, grow".....but stop appearing in lousy movies.
4 August 2001 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Producers Golan and Globus should have been ashamed to release this piece of trash publicly. I know this is gonna sound cliched, but compared to this, the first "Hercules" of 1983 looks like a mature and exciting epic! This "sequel" is moronic, cheap, unredeemable, childish, phony, inept and BADLY ACTED. A landmark in bad cinema, and one of the few, few movies I've seen that REALLY deserve the lowest possible rating: no stars!
