      Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy Slopped together from mythological dog-ends with no particular grace or wit. Rated: 5/10 May 8, 2011 Full Review Beth Accomando KPBS.org Ab-solutely goofball sword and sandal film. Great cheese factor.

      renaldo d Steve Reeves is amazing, as is this first Hercules film, however, the editing and script are terrible Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Mythology - Depth - Character + Cheese = Garbage Only bearable because of Mystery Science Theater 3000 Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member GREAT MOVIE EVEN WITH THE DUBBIING. HIGHLY UNDERRATED Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member mashup of multiple stories related to Golden Fleece Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Steve Reeves may be Hercules, but he could use a better plot for a dull movie. It's not as entertaining as the other Hercules movies, though it does have some better qualities. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member I hope those anabolizers kill Hercules to never star in a film again.
