as The Sybil
Critic Reviews for Hercules
Slopped together from mythological dog-ends with no particular grace or wit.
Ab-solutely goofball sword and sandal film. Great cheese factor.
A true guilty pleasure for the young at heart. The prototype sand-and-sandal epic.
Cheesily entertaining old-school adventure romp.
Audience Reviews for Hercules
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 itâ€™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 itâ€™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 itâ€™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!)
