An interesting entry in the epic series that plays more like a costume swashbuckler than any thing else. Hercules (Alan Steel) becomes attached to the royal court through his daring and courageous deeds, but is accused of being a pirate by a vicious and conniving courtier. The king (played by Nerio Bernardi) takes the accuser's side, but when real pirates kidnap the king's daughter, Hercules must prove his loyalty for once and for all, and also win the hand of the woman he loves. Anna Arena, Rosalba Neri, Piero Lulli, and Enzo Maggio, co-star in this film directed by costume-maestro Luigi Capuano. Dubbed in English. (B/B-).
