Quotes

Ercole: These accursed ropes. They seem to be bewitched. The more I struggle, the tighter they get.
Ulisse: Then you had better stop struggling.
Ercole: Stop struggling? Have you gone mad? I am not going to let myself be eaten by a sacred vulture.

A good start that wanders off.
12 February 2004 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

Jupiter sends Heracles (yes thats right, its not Hercules) to get Ulysses and bring him to the cyclops for his little blinding trick. Its an odd film as what should be the adventures or two heroes are enemies for most of it. Somewhere along the lines they get captured by bird people and find their lady loves. The first 45 minutes constitute a pretty good, if cheaply made, adventure film. Unfortunately the second half spirals and then plummets into Mystery Science Theater 3000 territory as all sense is lost and technical errors, for example rock walls that ripple like cloth or hands appearing in empty holes, begin to over take any hope that the makers knew what they were doing. If you like off beat adventure films try the first half of this...I can't promise anything about the second.
