Storyline

Hercules is provoked till he has no other choice then fight Gargan, a giant who had absolutely no quarrel with him- and decks the mountain of aggression easily. Then the last survivor of a group of messengers, killed off one by one by Hera, dies after imploring him to come end her rule of terror in the 'lost city of Troy', which his father Zeus, who is once more unwilling to extend any more tangible help, discloses can only be found with the 'one true compass' last seen in the possession of queen Omphale. On his searching for her he frees -then against her will- Deianeira, the eager victim about to be sacrificed to the river god as virgin in the prime of her fertility to end a drought. He battles passed the 48 sons of the gate guardian and arranges to be sold at the annual slave market to the queen, who only wants him in her bed. After dealing with some protection racketeers and the devoted, happy palace slave Waylin he finally gets her late husbands compass from Omphale. He sets out ... Written by KGF Vissers

the second outing of Sorbo as Hercules is better than the first
2 October 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

This, the second of five TV movies that would lead up to the Hercules TV show, starts of with a giant coming to do battle with Hercules (Kevin Serbo). Afterwards, Herc is beckoned to help the people of the lost city of Troy escape the clutches of Hera, the queen of the Gods in the form of a water creature this time. So accompanied by Deianeira, a girl he saved from sacrifice to the Gods, despite her wishes, he goes off on a new quest to find the fabled kingdom. Even though I missed Michael Hurst as Iolaus in this one, I enjoyed seeing Robert Trebor (who would go onto the series later on) as the comic relief as Waylin the Slave. All in all, I found this film to be better than the first outing, but it's still not as good as the eventual show would become. Also In my previous review of "Hercules and the Amazon Women", I was extremely remiss in not mentioning the late Anthony Quinn as Zeus, well he's great in this as well as all the other Hercules telemovies.

My Grade: B+
