Lotta gutter-balls in this post but the sheer volume of awesomeness still shines through. Fantastic ads, frenzied battle scenes, beautiful babes and a lot of butt-steak. Fun movie, too, and the only thing that would make it even better, despite it being cast adrift in public domain hell, is if someone could finally get a widescreen print of Hercules Unchained into circulation just like they finally managed to do with it’s predecessor, a fate this film truly deserves.
