A couple of brothers back in those Greek olden days take on quite an assignment. The newlywed, but as of yet unconsummated bride of Scott Elrod, Amanda Brooks is murdered and her soul instead of going to the Elysian Fields is taken to Tartarus, the province of Hades where all the bad people get sent.
This bridegroom is hot to trot so Elrod and his more scholarly inclined brother Adam Butcher lead an expedition to go cross the River Styx and rescue his lady love from the dead where she's been earmarked to be the bride of Hades.
The title Hellhounds comes from the fact that Hades has some trained attack dogs that make pit bulls look like cocker spaniels. They look a whole lot like Taylor Lautner and his friends from New Moon when they're in their werewolf mode. Of course the special effects aren't even half as good.
The special effects aren't up to par and the acting frankly is on a level of some stock companies I've seen perform.
Unless you're a glutton for bad Greek mythology I'd let this one slip by. The Kevin Sorbo Hercules series was far better done than Hellhounds.
