Audience Reviews for Hercules Against the Moon Men
Long before Iron Man, Spiderman and Captain America galvanized the theatrical marketplace, Hercules movies were the superhero movies of their time. The hero didn't have a life or complications, he just arrived in the nick of time, maybe picking up a buxom daughter or two along the way before riding off into the sunset. Until that time, well, flex baby, flex, and so they did. Alan Steel (lol) plays our man of the hour here, smiling as legions of bad guys encompass him before shaking them off like fleas. The evil Queen has made a pact with the Moon Men to take over the world, can our hero overcome the obstacles? Take it as very light kiddie entertainment, or weren't you ever a kid yourself?
As the new MST3K Netflix original was being promoted I decided to expose myself to some of the old episodes available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix (there is a different random selection on each platform). Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy the torture they are put through. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the extra material broadcast from the satellite of love. The Italian Hercules cycle of films throwing the Greek/Roman hero into further out-there adventures is another sub-genre the boys love to skewer. It was difficult to sit through the cheesy effects and the absurd plot. The rock monster costumes actually look pretty good, but are cumbersome for the stunt guys to fight in, while the moon men costumes are completely awful. Alan Steel nè Sergio Ciani with his oiled muscles played Hercules at least a half dozen times. Everything about this is cheap.
Another one of the Hercules films starring Alan Steel, this time he battles the Moonmen, basically some aliens seeking to control Earth. As ridiculous as it sounded, it was actually entertaining in a campy way.
