Goofs

In the bar, Iolaus tells a story, in clip show format, to someone who doesn't believe that Hercules is Hercules. However, the story he tells didn't take place, as Iolaus died and Hercules went back in time preventing the events in the flashback from ever occurring. See more »

Quotes

Hercules: [angry villagers are banging at the inn door; Hercules runs into the room where Iolaus is sleeping] Iolaus! Wake up! Now!
Iolaus: Can't we talk about this tomorrow?

"But wherever there was evil, wherever an innocent would suffer, there would be Hercules."
20 June 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Hercules, married and a father of three, is settled down and longs for the adventures of his past, which leads to lots of flashbacks. Eventually he does get a chance for new adventure and heads off with Iolaus to fight the Minotaur.

This is the fifth and final of the Hercules TV movies before Hercules: The Legendary Journey was launched. In a way, it serves as a good primer for that series because it's basically a clip show. While I enjoyed the Hercules TV series, they did do a lot of clip shows where they showed past clips from episodes with a few new scenes to fill time. This was done to save money but still meet the ordered per-season episode count. Not sure what the excuse is here but it's probably about saving money as well. It's nice to see Michael Hurst back as Iolaus. His chemistry with Sorbo is great and the Hercules/Iolaus friendship provided the show with its buddy comedy heart. Tawny Kitaen's sexy as ever. Anthony Quinn appears as Zeus for the last time. A miniature Rose McIver plays one of Hercules' kids. The Minotaur looks pretty cool but the excessive flashbacks are annoying. It's the least of the five movies but still entertaining.
