Master thespian Rick(y) Schroder works behind the camera in this blah tale of ancient magic. When a young dolt watches his new bride die, he gets some magic juice from a creepy witch and heads into the underworld (designed by someone who clearly knows nothing of Greek religious thought). Kind of like a long, boring episode of Xena.

Is there a movie where they use prop replicas from the movie 300?
Is there a movie where they attempt to imitate the power strikes of Brad Pitt-Achilles from Troy...and fail miserably ?
The answer to both these questions is yes, and that movie is called Hellhounds. This B movie is a combination of some ok actors, some of the worlds worst actors, some of the worst cg ever created, and some quite nice splatter scenes. It has some nicely directed scenes, some terrible scenes, some ok scenes. In general this movie looks like it was made by whomever came through the door of the studio by chance and just grabbed the camera and directed a part of the movie. There is no other way to explain why some parts look great and some are rediculus.

Can you afford to miss this movie ?
Yes you definitely can...but go on and watch it (on dvd) :D

Hellhounds is another film in the long line of Maneater films that range from terrible to so-so. This one falls in the so-so category as it follows the Sinbad/Clash of the Titans genre of films, though with a much, much smaller budget. Directed by former child actor Rick (don't call me Ricky) Schroder (even though they credited his name as Ricky behind his back, lol), Hellhounds tells the story of handsome, chiseled face warrior Kleitos (Scott Elrod) whose about to marry Princess Demetria (Amanda Brooks) until best friend Theron (J.A. Woods), whose always loved Demetria, poisons the princess and kills her before she can marry. But Uh-oh, Hades is looking for a pure, innocent bride, and Demetria happens to be that piece of tail, so Kleitos, Theron, and a nice supply of body count victims travel to the Underworld to save Demetria, which goes by relatively fast through the first half of the film, leaving the second half for the group to fend off now fully-villainous Theron and his Hellhounds (who seem to take forever to get going despite them being the title-characters). The film's most popular actor, Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire) shows up VERY briefly to play the king. Overall, this movie is so-so. It's got an interesting story, but unfortunately, it's backed up by the usual problems of bad actors, poor budget, and icky special effects. Also, this movie would have gained a little more respect from me had it been given a more appropriate name besides Hellhounds (especially since these title monsters are merely an afterthought throughout this entire film save for the last 20 minutes). Pretty dull.
