Product Description

A double feature of epic proportions! In Hercules, the granddaddy of all sword and sandal films, the mythical muscleman (played by former Mr. America and Mr. Universe Steve Reeves) joines the Argonauts on their quest for the Golden Fleece. Along the way, they encounter a bevy of buxom Amazons, hideous apemen, Italian sex goddesses Sylva Koscina (Lisa and the Devil) and Giana Maria Canale (I Vampiri), and a gigantic dragon. Presented on DVD for the first time in its original widescreen splendor, this is the original monsters-and-muscles classic you've been waiting for!

Plus: Mark Forest stars in Mole Men Against the Son of Hercules as Hercules' son, Maciste, who goes underground to discover the terrifying kingdom of the Mole Men, who are ruled by beautiful but wicked Queen Alismoyab... whose evil is no match for her weakness for muscles! Also starring black bodybuilder Paul Wynter, this is one of the wildest and weirdest of the Italian beefcake fests.

Review

Under the jealous wrath of the queen of the gods, young Hercules perform the twelve labors, each one more impossible than the last. Next, he uses his bulging biceps to assist Jason and the Argonauts on their quest for the mythical Golden Fleece. --Rotten Tomatoes

If this stuff is for you, than this Movie is Important It might not be the first , But it probably started the hole crazeback in the 50s and 60s , on up to the reent day, When I read the reviews on this one, thay were all over the map about weather it was true Widescreen or not, Well I recieved my copy of it the other day, The Picture quality was Great the Colors were deep and vibrent, and then I started paying attension to the aspect res- of the movie , well seemed to me that it was truely enough Widescreen, Maby It's suposed to be wider than that, but it was not Pan and Scan, for shure and I thought to wide an image for Full screen. For such an important Movie in this gene, I'm very happy witth this DVD...

I saw what I thought was Son of Hercules vs the Mole Men over 40 years ago late one night on a black and white tv while living in greater Chicagoland. I may have been the only one to see it as for the last 40 years my quest to see it again was met with laughter and ridicule. And now, I have a copy. It's not Hercules vs the Moon Men as so many insisted, It does exist and the Son of Herc does indeed save his black friend by preventing tons of concrete slabs from pressing swords into his flesh. Incredible Feats of strength, an underground city powered by thousands of the mole men's slaves running in a circle, Italian damsels with pointed chests in distress, a fortune in GIANT jewels and more silliness than we have a right to expect...who could ask for more.

I"d rate this a 7 out of 10 for a clear print,although a few scratches here and there.As I've seen mentioned before this is the best print other than someone taking it directly from the 35mm original.The new dubbed in voices leave a lot of desire for the original.This is the copy I saw on AMC on cable and wondered where they got it.I saw this when it came out in the movies in 1958 and wished I could see the original Italian version.Well until they they redo it,this ain't half bad....love Steve,still the best Herc!!!!!!!

As another reviewer states this is an inferior audio dub of the classic Hercules. BUT, it's a very good widescreen picture copy. Well the best I've seen so far and I've ordered about 4 versions in the past. It beats the heck out of the HORRIBLE remastered version going for $19.95 elsewhere at Amazon. But if we could only have the audio of one and the video of the other :( There is also a very odd hum in the audio at parts of the mvie but not so bad it's distracting. I'd rather have deep lush color than a perfect audio track. Although as others have said why can't Criterion master this Classic movie and get the two parts right ?????
Hercules has never looked as good and considering the other choppy pale versions this is the one to get by Jupiter, wish it were Zeus though :)

This review is of the Retromedia double feature "Hercules" and "Mole men Against the Son of Hercules"

"Hercules"

This well-made film is far superior to run of the mill "Sword 'N Sandal" movies. Steve Reeves does a creditable job of playing Hercules, while the rest of the cast includes several well-known Italian actors of the period, some of whom are recognizable from Biblical epics co-produced in Italy.

The story revolves around Hercules' efforts to return the rightful heir to the throne of Iolcus, a small city-state where the king had been murdered and replaced by his brother several years earlier. Hercules encounters many individuals from Greek mythology: Jason, Ulysses, Laertes, Castor, Pollux, Argos, Pelias, and several others. He performs many heroic deeds: rescuing a beautiful Princess (Sylva Koscina) from runaway horses, fighting lions and bulls bare-handed, and searching for the golden fleece, among others. He also encounters Amazon warriors and Sirens. Although there is considerable deviation from Greek legend, the story is well done and follows a consistent narrative.

Quality wise, the enhanced DVD is very good, with a clear, sharp image and well-saturated colors - though the sound track is noisy. Mario Bava was the director of photography, so the camera work and lighting are above the norm. Recommended.

"Mole Men Against the Son of Hercules"

I was so unimpressed I did not watch it all the way through. What I did see in the first hour or so seemed to be almost the inverse of the first movie. Acting was at the high school level and the visual quality of the unenhanced film was faded and washed out. Other reviewers have said they enjoyed it, so I will leave it at that.
