Hercules in the Underworld

Hercules in the Underworld

Bill L Norton (1994)



Our Score
This was the mythical muscleman's fourth TV movie (out of five) to be screened and final feature outing before headliner Kevin Sorbo embarked on his popular TV series of "Legendary Journeys". As the story opens, Hercules is happily raising a family with Deianeira. But he's lured out of retirement when Hera opens the jaws of the Underworld, where he has to unite with Hades to capture the destructive Cerberus. As with all good legends, the tale twists and turns and the heroes and villains are readily identifiable. Sorbo is as imposing as ever, but the only acting comes from Anthony Quinn as Zeus.


A gigantic hole opens up in the Earth's surface, allowing evil spirits to escape from the underworld to prey on nearby villagers - and mighty hero Hercules is the only thing standing in their way. Mythic adventure, starring Kevin Sorbo, Anthony Quinn and Tawny Kitaen.
