5.0 out of 5 stars This fine movie for only a few small coins?
Words don't do this movie justice - one has to see it to believe it. The superior quality of acting, dialogue and special effects in this movie is mesmerizing. Would recommend to anyone who likes Arnold and camp movies. This is so bad it's actually hilarious.

1.0 out of 5 stars "I Am Hercules!"
1 star given for the comedic value of an under experienced and wonderfully wooden 22 year old Arnold "Mr Universe" Schwarzenegger here. The rest, well, it's hard to stomach. It's cheaply made and it looks it. A very daft plot, very lazy effects and a cast that look like they've been plucked from a University film or something.

It's 82 minutes too long,...

This review is from: Hercules in New York [DVD] (DVD)
1 star given for the comedic value of an under experienced and wonderfully wooden 22 year old Arnold "Mr Universe" Schwarzenegger here. The rest, well, it's hard to stomach. It's cheaply made and it looks it. A very daft plot, very lazy effects and a cast that look like they've been plucked from a University film or something.

It's 82 minutes too long, and will test even the die-hard Arnie fans as this role is notorious for being the one he regrets most but helped get him the recognition as an imposing, strong presence on screen. He tries his best, bless him, and even makes his first pun on screen.

Other than that, don't waste your time because it's got nothing that will appeal to you in a very dis-jointed and lazy film.

but even in it's quirky terribleness, it wouldn't deserve more than one star. Overall, as well as being laughably bad it was actually pretty boring

This review is from: Hercules In New York [DVD] (DVD)
This film is brilliant. It features some excellent improv acting from Arnold, as well as a fight with a bear and other lovely bits. If you can watch this twice in a row, you are considered a true Arnold fan and a true film connoisseur. Well done Arnold!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hero rises in new york..., 23 Dec 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Hercules in New York [DVD] (DVD)
After watching this film i was mesmerised by its ingenious amazingness. The special effects are also really well done, i jumped up in shock as id never seen such a realistic looking bear. Furthermore, the acting in this film is of a standard way above most 'normal' films. Arnie delivers his lines with real emotion and conviction, and his side-kick delivers the comic relief with such subtle brilliance. This film is a joy to watch from start to finish, and propably my number one most enjoyable film with Arnold in it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money for any true Arnold-fan!, 28 May 2002
By 
This review is from: Hercules in New York [DVD] (DVD)
"Hercules in New York" is one of Arnold Schwarzeneggers first leading-role movies. It takes place both in New York and on the mountain of Olympus. Arnold, or Hercules, is bored and wants to visit America. His father Zeus will not allow the trip, but Hercules disobeys his father and leaves anyway. In New York Hercules is picked up by a tiny little man called Pretzie, and the two become friends. Hercules begins to wrestle to earn money, but after he looses his strength (because of a magic spell) he ends up with both the mafia and Zeus on his tale.The story is thin as paper and the acting is even worse, but it is an absolutely vital movie for any true Arnold-fan. If not for any other reason than to see Arnold beat up a "Grizzlybear" in Central Park! Arnold`s voice is dubbed, but nevertheless, you will never forget this movie!
