Movie Info

Dan Vadis is the main muscleman in this Italian sword-and-sandal opus, which predated Steve Reeves' Hercules by two years. Given the English-language dubbing of the actors, it's hard to tell whether or not the leading characters were really Hercules' offspring, or if they were rechristened to conform with TV's Sons of Hercules package of the early 1960s. Never mind. You'll forget all about who the characters are supposed to be as you watch Vadis and company take on dragons and giants on behalf of the Forces of Good. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

AKA SONS OF HERCULES: IN THE LAND OF DARKNESS. Hercules---oops, I mean SON of Hercules---and his annoying comic relief sidekick fight a man in a bear suit and a subterranean tribe of cannibal slavers. It's two episodes of a cheap Italian TV show smashed together to make a feature film. In the middle of the story, narrator breaks in to give us a preview of what's coming in the second half!

Not too entertaining beyond it's camp factor, the acting is bad and the plot is senseless. The effects were laughable and probably the only eye-candy this movie offered. It has a few good scenes, like the dragon fight or the elephants with the chains, but otherwise, it's a bore

Don Vadis plays the part of Hercules in this film, out of all those actors who have played Hercules, I would say he has the best build for the part. I this one Hercules not only fights a evil queen but also must fight a dragon. The Evil Queen captures Hercules and orders him to be pulled apart by elephants, but as every Saturday afternoon TV watching kid in the Sixties knew, Hercules not only came through this without a scratch or a flea, but in the process he kicked some butt. My copy came from Mill Creek 50 Pack Warriors collection. This one is worth the standard 3 stars when it comes to Hercules movies.
