Storyline

Though Genghis Khan eventually sought peace with the West, his death in 1227 AD puts into power his three war-like sons: Sayan, Susdal, and Kin Khan. These sons quickly overrun the city of Tuleda and take prisoner Princess Bianca, though young Prince Alessio escapes. Hercules comes to the rescue of Bianca, winning her freedom in a tournament in exchange for becoming a slave himself. Forces from the West soon come to re-take Tuleda and Hercules -- freed from his bonds -- helps to dispatch Genghis Khan's three sons while again saving Bianca and reuniting her with her young brother.

Above average Peplum
25 March 2007 | by Maciste_BrotherSee all my reviews

As far as Sword & Sandal films go, HERCULES AGAINST THE MONGOLS is a pretty good effort. The film moves at a really fast clip. Technically, the film is well directed, with a little more thought put into it than most cardboard actioners from Italy. The cast is uniformly good looking: Mark Forest is in top shape and is basically shirtless throughout the movie and he has a couple of stand-out scenes which showcases his muscular physique (he even gets hurt by an arrow!). José Greci, a regular in these kind of films, is truly gorgeous and makes an impressive "royalty". The actors playing Mongols don't look like Mongols but then I believe there were few Mongol actors back then (or even now).

Like so many of these movies, there's a kid (or a little people). His name is Alex and the kid is not really that annoying but the female actor who supplies his voice is just awful. Every time I heard her voice, I wanted to smash the TV.

The sets (interior and exterior) are excellent and believable. Most of the film was shot outside, which gives some credence to the whole film. No studio-bound exterior sets like the ones in HERCULES AGAINST THE BARBARIANS, which also stars the exact same cast but with a completely different story. The costumes and the music are also above average. Nothing earth-shattering but I really had a good time.
