Directed by
Luigi Cozzi

Lou Ferrigno, Sybil Danning, Ingrid Anderson and Mirella D'Angelo take the lead roles in Italian writer-director Luigi Cozzi's mythological romp for the low-budget action specialists The Cannon Group. The narrative starts with the creation of the universe, at the end of which Pandora's jar is broken, releasing evil into the world. Greek god Zeus decides to protect mankind from evil by creating a hero and sends divine light down to Bronze Age Thebes, where it enters the body of a royal baby. The infant survives a bloody palace coup instigated by Adriana, daughter of a rival monarch, and the malicious interventions of Zeus's wronged wife Hera to become the immensely strong Hercules. But adulthood doesn't see an end to the relentless campaign to destroy him. And when Adriana captures his love Cassiopea, Hercules joins forces with the sorceress Circe to save Cassiopea.
