Hercules/The Adventures of Hercules [DVD]

  • SKU: 14342598
  • Release Date: 07/12/2005
  • Rating: PG
MGM finally brings the fabulously bizarre Italian romps of a certain Greek god starring the one and only Lou Ferrigno to the small screen with this double-feature disc that promises unending viewing pleasures. This release presents both 1983's Hercules and 1985's follow-up, The Adventures of Hercules, in their original 1.85:1 widescreen pictures; the movies have been given anamorphic and Dolby Digital treatments that gloriously show off the glitzy effects to dizzying degrees. Both films also feature their theatrical trailers, proudly boasting "The Incredible Lou Ferrigno!" as their main selling point. For fans of kitsch cinema, one couldn't ask for a better value or product. This set was released in tandem with another '80s Ferrigno Italian masterpiece, Enzo G. Castellari's Sinbad of the Seven Seas.

Synopsis


Hercules
The 12 labors of Hercules were not the objective of this film starring Lou Ferrigno as the semi-divine son of Zeus and the mortal Alcmene. Hercules must rescue Princess Cassiopea from her kidnappers, fight off grotesque laser-breathing monsters and in one case, jettison a giant bear up into space where it becomes Ursa Major, the Big Dipper or "Great Bear" constellation. Off-color (many scenes are in dim, bluish stage sets) and low-budget, this incarnation of Hercules may find unconverted viewers a difficult, 13th challenge to conquer. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

The Adventures of Hercules
Mighty Hercules (played by muscleman Lou Ferrigno) returns in this sequel. This papa Zeus sends Herc from Olympus to Earth to find seven stolen thunderbolts. Basically the film is Saturday afternoon kiddy matinee fodder, good for passing the time, but little else. The film is also known as Adventures of Hercules. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    Somehow I find these movies irresistible. Low budget (especially by today's standards) but oddly charming.

    Louie is one of the few actors who had the real body that would give you the feeling that he is Hercules.
