Editorial Reviews

Now this is a smackdown, ancient-myth style. No octagonal steel cage. No rules. No surrender. It's Hercules vs. Samson in a brawl to outdo them all, hurling spears, heaving chunks of pillars and, in the clinches, bending thick iron rods around each other. Hercules had set out to find Samson and deliver him to the Philistines in exchange for the imprisoned Ulysses and other Ithacans. Samson, of course, fights rather than submits. But in the course of the titanic Herc-Sam clash, something happens. The two rivals develop a mutual respect and decide to join forces against their common foes: the Philistines. From an enduring filmmaking tradition that unites monsters (Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man), desperados (Return of the Badmen) and superheroes (The Avengers) comes a not-to-be-overlooked film that brings together Hercules, Samson and Ulysses. Strap up your sandals' calf-high leather laces and get ready to rumble.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truely a golden Oldie January 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
I think the first time I saw this one it was in the early 70s , I hade recorded it from the TV probably in the 1980s on VHS tape , I didn;t think I'd ever see it on DVD, and then, there it was on Amazon , To my surprize not only was the picture quality great , but it was actully in Widescreen too, I think this was one of the better sword and sandal , movies that was made , Right up there with Hercules, and Hercules Unchained, This is good new for my movie Collection , If you like this stuff get this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Half baked but fun November 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
If you love Peplum, this is for you. Not the best in the Steve Reeves-Hercules mode, but quite fun nevertheless. The plot, if one can call it that, involves a journey by Hercules (Kirk Morris) and Ulyssses (comedian Enzo Cerusico) to catch a sea monster, a storm blows them off course, so, of course, they end up in Judea (!!!), where they get involved in a plot with Samson (!!!) to dethrone an evil ruler. (Yes, I'm dizzy from just telling about it.) Liana Orfei provides a very scrumptious and duplicitous femme fatale and even gets to perform a barely adequate hooch number. The production values are quite impressive for a peplum not starring Reeves. There are many lavish sets and hordes of extras involved in impressive battle scenes. Kirk Morris (not his real moniker) is just fine in the titular role (not a bad turn for an ex-gondolier muscleboy.) Believe me, you've seen worse (some of those Maciste fliks come to mind).

The print by MGM is presented in an 1:85 anamorphic format, though I suspect the original was shot in a 2:35 aspect ratio, but you get a picture that will fill out your entire flat screen panel. It is sharp with good color and you won't miss anything on the sides (of the screen).

5.0 out of 5 stars More muscles, ..more mayhem, ...more mirth! June 6, 2013
Yes, another movie with "big" men, ....and tiny costumes.

Triple your value here, ...although Ulysses certainly does not go to the same gym that the actors who play the other two title roles do.
Just about all the expected inclusions you'd expect from this genre, .....with the one noticeable exception.
There's usually some ingenious and dastardly way to execute the innocent employed by the villain.
Nothing like that here.
All the other features are present though.

The obligatory dance sequence of course, ...although it's only done by Delilah,(remember that name!), and it's a pretty lame turn in fact. Even the King/tyrant it's being performed for starts to yawn and gets distracted, ...much to the displeasure of she who is writhing in the veils!
The veils are slowly being removed by a muscular man wielding a bullwhip! (Now there's an original touch I bet Salome didn't think of!)

There's the virtuous little wife waiting at home for Hercules to return. Yes, Herc is married here and even has a blond haired little rug-rat, who in one amazing scene uses his dad's mighty hammies and tight buttocks as a punching bag!
Herc wears VERY short skirts and leaves plenty on show for the kid to play with!
Anyway, ...off Herc goes with Ulysses in a Greek-style boat ostensibly to kill a "sea-monster" that's been destroying shipping.
It's really a sea-lion when you get to see it, ....filmed to look bigger, but just an ordinary sea-lion after all. No monster effects, which was a bit disappointing for me.

Then there's the usual storm, blowing the ship off course and destroying it. Survivors, ...including Herc and Ulysses (of course!

5.0 out of 5 stars Been waiting for aeons for this film March 3, 2014
Verified Purchase
I first saw this film when I was about 10, and I think I beg stole and borrowed to get some money to watch it time and time again.
If you like these films. You will love this one. The quality of the film itself is outstanding, when you look at how many of these films have not been looked after or restored. Again, I say, if you like sword and sandle. You will love this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Copy Quality October 29, 2013
By psip
Verified Purchase
This has been hard to find and this version is a good clear copy. The only other copy I was able to find in English was converted from a VHS tape copied from TNT network. You either like these Peplum movies or you don't. This one mixes Greek mythology with the Bible, and is well done. This movie put the styrofoam industry on the map. Lots of styrofoam used in the fight and battle scenes to magnify the super-human strength of Hercules and Samson. The movie is the third in a Hercules trilogy. The first two starred Steve Reeves and this one Kirk Morris(Adriano Bellini) as Hercules. There are about five other actors that kept their same rolls from the first two movies. Morris and co-star Richard Lloyd(Iloosh Khooshaben/Samson) both appear to be good natural bodybuilders.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sword and sandal film August 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
This film is a cut above most Italian sword and sandal films from the 1960s. Costumes, sets and acting are very good with excellent location work in Italy doubling for the Holy Land. The story is also very well done even though characters from Greek mythology and the Bible are mixed together. Kirk Morris makes a good Hercules. If you enjoyed Steve Reeves in Hercules and Hercules Unchained, you will enjoy this very much.
