Format: DVD
From what I've read, this was originally shot as a pilot for a TV series, but the series fell through and this was aired as a Movie of the Week type feature. That explains why it is only 47 minutes long and why, sadly, it was made with your usual TV movie level of quality.

I didn't hate the movie but I didn't like it much either. It's missing the bumbling charm, outrageous flair and hilarious dialogue that I've always loved in a good peplum. There aren't any crazy feats of strength, nutty old men, harem dancers or feisty midget sidekicks. This movie is a mere shell of a peplum.

There are a few decent points in its favor, which I'll mention just to be fair. There is a fun, all too brief boxing match wherein Herc's opponent wears some seriously dangerous looking spiked gloves. Working for an unknown conspirator, he dips the spikes in deadly poison and mixes it up with Herc. Eventually he tries for a single killing blow, trips over his own feet and falls on his own poisoned spikes. Ha! Just what he deserves, the jerk!

The character Diogenes, "Skeptic, philosopher and scientist" is well played by Paul Stevens. He was the brains of the outfit and an amusingly smart-a$$ know-it-all. He tells Herc that he doesn't mind traipsing around hunting for a sea monster (That's the plot btw, Herc and crew have to rescue a princess from a sea monster and then restore her to her rightful throne) because his wife is alot nastier than any old sea-beast. Ha-ha, the 60's! Diogenes helps out quite a bit with his "science powders".

Generally I'm an easy grader with the peplums as long as they deliver some kind of entertainment. Unfortunately, this movie just doesn't deliver. It holds true to the usual stereotype of the TV movie, that it's a watered down version of its big brother, the theatrical release. It's barely alright if you want to kill 3/4 of an hour, but if you never see it you're not missing much.
