A surreal and deliciously kitschy rereading of the ancient myth, updated to feature 80s sci-fi tropes.The recipient of two Razzie awards in 1983, Hercules has all the prerequisites of a total bomb: atrocious dubbing, vile costumes, cheap sets, a popular bodybuilder as headliner and a whack-a-doo script that (wait for it) catapults the famous hero into space! Fascinatingly bizarre, this rewriting of Greek mythology is a bowlful of weirdness with a generous dollop of absurdity.King Minos and sorceress Adriana plan to conquer the world with her magic and his giant robots.
