Dan Vadis is the main muscleman in this Italian sword-and-sandal opus, which predated Steve Reeves' Hercules by two years. Given the English-language dubbing of the actors, it's hard to tell whether or not the leading characters were really Hercules' offspring, or if they were rechristened to conform with TV's Sons of Hercules package of the early 1960s. Never mind. You'll forget all about who the characters are supposed to be as you watch Vadis and company take on dragons and giants on behalf of the Forces of Good.
