Movie Info

Filmed in 1960 but not available to American audiences until 1963, Hercules Against the Barbarians was also released as Hercules Against the Barbarian; evidently "pluralism" works best at the box-office. This time the legendary muscleman's toga and sandals are filled by Mark Forest. Somewhat anachronistically, Hercules is called upon to fight off invading Mongol hordes. It's likely that Hercules Against the Barbarians was lensed at the same time as Hercules Against the Mongols; it's equally likely that both films were culled from a longer sword-and-sandal epic.

Audience Reviews for Hercules Against the Barbarians


May I suggest that they duel to the death? While traveling across the Middle East Hercules encounters some villagers, including a beautiful woman, who are troubled by a tyrant who is conquering their countryside. As Hercules approaches the tyrant, he discovers their foe is none other than Genhis Kahn. Hercules will stop at nothing to bring down this conquering fanatic. “I see no reason why you should be alive.” Domenico Paolla, director of Innocents from Hell, Execution, Women of Devil’s Island, Avengers of the Seven Seas, and Carnival of Song, delivers Hercules Against the Barbarians. The storyline for this picture is a bit ridiculous; however, the action scenes are well delivered and the action scenes aren’t half bad. The cast was better than average and includes Mark Forest. “This girl is worth a kingdom.” We DVR’d this film some time ago shortly after watching the Lou Ferrigno Hercules picture from 1983. This was an interesting movie and I enjoyed the settings and action sequences; however, the thought of Hercules and Genghis Khan doing battle made my stomach curdle. Overall, this isn’t and awful film and is worth watching once. “You must obey.” Grade: C

Hercules helps the Polish army against a massive Mongol horde. Not sure that old Hurc ever helped the polish Army, but hey if your a fan of old Hurc you might as well get this one. But save yourself a bundle and get the 50 Movie Pack from Mill Creek
