*Note: The Netflix Instant version dubs Arnold. Get the original in order to grasp the full hilarity of this film.
The production meeting for this stagnant piece of horse manure must have been a hoot.
"Yeah, he's a god but...but he's in New York City."
Every movie star has to start somewhere, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, then little-known outside of body building circles, made his screen debut in this comic variation on the "sword and sandal" epics po... read more

An early Schwarzenneger flick I caught on late night tv. Didn't care for it.

So bad it's absolutely hilarious. Mount Olympus apparently has traffic going past. The man who played the bear deserves best supporting actor, and for some of the shots not even being colour corrected properly this deserves Oscars. It isn't these painfully hilarious moments that ...

Hercules (Schwarzenegger) is sent to Earth where he finds true love and starts ...

Not exactly Arnold's best and not even his mediocre works to be honest, but still nevertheless a marginally OK movie. It's strictly for Arnold Schwarzenegger fans I'd say.
The movie is about Hercules (Arnold) leaving Olympus and coming to New York to participate in the lives o...
