Movie Info

After the quick thinking of Hercules (Steve Reeves) saves Princess Iole (Sylva Koscina), he is tasked with training her irresponsible brother, Iphitus (Mimmo Palmara), to assume their father's place as king. Hercules falls for the beautiful Iole, but must perform a series of grueling tasks when Iphitus is killed in a tragic accident. When the mysterious Jason (Fabrizio Mioni) appears and claims to be the rightful king, he, Hercules and the Argonauts set sail for the legendary Golden Fleece.

    I hope those anabolizers kill Hercules to never star in a film again.

    For a B-movie, this is all you could want in a Hercules story. While it’s more a story about Jason and the Argonauts, this certainly captures the essence of the character and all of his might. Steve Reeves is depicted as one of the most powerful human beings to ever walk the earth and it’s certainly believable by the way he is shot in this movie (appearing 7 ft tall). Boars, Lions and beasts are no match for the metahuman; he just beats them with his bare hands or wooden club. For it’s time, this is a really fun and memorable experience.

    hugh jackman in the latest x-men is way more buff than poor old steve reeves was back in the innocent yet halycon days of 1959, but ol' stevie did have a good story and the simmering sylvia koscina as romantic heat. try to beat that! better than you think it might be, and a foreign film no less! (i'm turning in my d.a.r. membership tomorrow!)
