Editorial Reviews

Get ready for a bevy of buxom Amazons, hideous ape men and gigantic dragons! When the incomparable Steve Reeves was cast as the mythic muscleman HERCULES, a screen icon and an entire film genre was born! Then Mark Forest stars in MOLE MEN AGAINST THE SON OF HERCULES. Maciste (Forest) goes underground to discover the terrifying kingdom of the Mole Men, who are ruled over by the beautiful but wicked Queen Alismoyab (Moira Orfei). Also starring body builder Paul Wynter, this is one of the wildest and weirdest of the Italian beefcake fests.

In HERCULES THE AVENGER, Reg Park returns as the mythological son of Jove who undertakes a journey into the nether regions battling zombies and monsters along the way to rescue his son. Then it’s the fantastic HERCULES AND THE BLACK PIRATE, a weird time-travel adventure a la The Witch’s Curse.

Hercules and Androcles (Ettore Manni), the King of Thebes, venture to Atlantis, where an evil queen (played by cult favorite Gay Spain) has hatched a diabolical plan for world domination in HERCULES AND THE CAPTIVE WOMEN. And Manni is reunited with Reg Park in HERCULES, PRISONER OF EVIL. Helmed by famed Euro-horror director Anthony Dawson (aka Antonio Margheriti), an evil sorceress seduces Hercules and turns him into a terrifying monster in this film that combines the best elements of both horror and Sword and Sandal genres.

Starring as Hercules in HERCULES AND THE PRINCESS OF TROY is Gordon Scott, who after appearing in several films as Tarzan, became one of the most popular and prolific of the Sword and Sandal stars. In the muscle-bound saga ATLAS IN THE LAND OF THE CYCLOPS, Gordon Mitchell (in his film debut) must battle an evil queen (the sexy Chelo Alonso) to save a baby descended from Ulysses.

This set also includes an extra-brawny bonus feature starring Richard Harrison: GIANTS OF ROME.

I bought this nicely priced set at a retail store for $15. I took a chance on it because it was distributed by Image Entertainment/Retromedia and I have never had a bad disc by these companies. I however hate to say it but at about the 16.20 mark on Hercules, Prisoner of Evil the film stutter skipped and then froze. I tried it on 3 different DVD players, a portable DVD player and my laptop and got the same problem. I got a replacement and it did it again. My third copy just stutter skipped but did not freeze but what made it worse is that the audio was out-of-sync for the rest of the film. Sick of dealing with the problem I just got my money back. The clerk at the retail store said they have been getting a number of returns on this set and are actually thinking about taking it off the shelf (!?!). I don't know if this is widespread problem but talking to friends and relatives that also have bought the set I have found that theirs at least had the stutter skip.

For the price of this set it is still worth it to many as it is only one film in the set that is defective. Still I just want to warn you that you will likely get a set that has a bad stutter skip in Hercules, Prisoner of Evil or worse it freezes.

These are re-releases of the previous RetroMedia titles. Image Entertainment now handles the RetroMedia line. Sad to say all 4 discs are the exact same discs that have been available before. Quality is sadly lacking.

I just saw this movie for the first time. It has a good musical score, decent script and acting. Reeves is great in this role. He looks like a Greek God.For you guys attacking the acting skills and story plot, do you really think Arnold is a good actor and has mind dazzling plots? Let's get real already!This is actually two movies in one: first, the Labors of Hercules and his role as master of arms for the King of Jolco then the adventure of Jason and the Argonauts and the Quest for the Golden Fleece.Reeves outmuscles Kevin Sorbo by leaps and bounds and has a charisma better than Arnold. I became a fan of Reeves recently by reading his book; "Building the Classic Physique." As Hercules, Reeves displays the classic physique. Easy to see why he was a former Mr. America and Mr. Universe. And his book is great. I believe that this is the best natural bodybuilding, conditioning and toning book out there. Great for men and women.My Dad has been a big fan of Reeves for along time. Looking forward to seeing more of his movies.If you haven't watched Hercules with Steve Reeves, do, you'll love it just like I did.Good movie. Reeves is appealing to men and women alike, bodybuilders and the general public. It's easy to see why he was so popular in his day. I heard that President John F. Kennedy and Winston Churchill enjoyed his movies as well.I know I did. Watch it. You'll love it. And if you can get a copy, I recommend his great book "Build The Classic Physique"RIP MR. REEVES and thank you for leaving us your movies and your wisdom to inspire.

Here was a release that I was greatly anticipating because it was being released by Timeless Media/Shout Factory. They were responsible for one of the best collections 'THE BEST OF SPAGHETTI WESTERNS' which had 20 movies on 10 DVD's in their original aspect ratios available for a great price. Now they announced 6 titles of the Sword and Sandal genre a few of which are available for the first time. The bad news is that the six films are on two discs three to a disc and that they are full screen and flat as pancakes. A warning sign should have been the cover of the set being very deceptive showing actor Steve Reeves in Hercules pose but is only featured once in the collection and the only non Hercules film in the set ,Director Giorgio Ferroni's 'THE TROJAN HORSE' aka 'LA GUERRA DI TROIA'-1961 . For those who do not care about the way their films are presented, you will be very happy in that the quality of the films are excellent with great color and nary a speck or scratch in sight. The beauty of the images, however, are lost in the pan and scan frenzies that follow and some of the power of the films are greatly diminished because of it. Although the rarity of some of these titles is apparent. the set is probably the best we are going to get for now. For those who need to know the content of the set : Disc One has the 'TROJAN HORSE' ; Director Carlo Ludovico Bragalia's 'THE LOVES OF HERCULES' aka 'GLI AMORE DI ERCOLI' aka 'HERCULES VERSUS THE HYDRA'-1966 featuring the husband and wife team of Mickey Hargitay and Jayne Mansfield who has a dual role; and Director Alberto De Martino's 'MEDUSA AGAINST THE SON OF HERCULES' aka 'PERSEO L'INVINCIBILE'-1963 featuring Richard Harrison which really loses its beauty due to the flatness of the image.Read more ›

I was REALLY excited about this release, until I started to go into the details. (1) A Hercules set WITHOUT Hercules Unchained, this has been crying out for an anamorphic transfer for donkeys' years. It's great if the other titles are in 2:35:1, and if Unchained was there, I would have bought it just for that, but alas, it was not to be and (2)a small point, the cover art is actually from Goliath and the Barbarians, which is NOT in the collection. I'm afraid I'll have to pass, it's a pity Image could'nt have tried a little harder on this one, it really would have been worth the effort.
