      Georgan G Another stinker from the 50 DVD SciFi Collection, disc 8. The only part watchable is the well oiled beefcake. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/23/23 Full Review kevin w One of the runts of this series, but not for lack of trying. It simply doesn't have a script for the action (which are what these early superhero films were about, yah?), and it's Hercules doesn't have the oomph. Women are sold as sex toys, which is all good until one of them happens to be the next Queen of the kingdom. That's when one of the roaming sons of Hercules gets involved to dispense with some asswhupping vengeance. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member After a princess (Girardon) is driven from her palace when an evil warlord (Felicianii) conquers her city and sold into slavery, the wandering hero Anthar (Morris) and his boy sidekick (Dell'Acqua) set out to rescue her and restore her to her throne. "Devil of the Desert Against the Son of Hercules) is a TV edit or an Italian fantasy movie originally titled "Anthar the Invicible" that's set in pre-Islamic Persia. It features gorgeous costumes and sets, a decent storyline (if you're into this sort of thing), and a rousing musical score. The mirror maze where the main bad guy likes to dispose people who annoy him is also vvery cool. The only real flaw the film has is that it'sa bit slow in getting under way, and there are a couple of times where the story doesn't grind to a halt because of convenient idiocy on the part of the bad guys. (There's a bridge across a chasm that provides easy access to a camp, but the guard is posted underneath it instead of at one of its ends. Huh?) Devil of the Desert Against the Sons of Hercules (aka "Anthar the Invincible", "Soraya, Queen of the Desert" and "The Slave Merchants") Starring: Kirk Morris, Mario Feliciani, Michèle Girardon, Roberto Dell'Acqua, José Jaspe, and Renato Baldini Director: Anthony Dawson Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member As Hercules films go, this one isn't too bad. The production is decent, okay sets. The acting isn't very good though and the story is a bit mundane. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member My favorite line from this movie..."Please accept this chicken wing as a token of my good will" -Caesar (paraphrased) Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
