Golan and Globus have corralled ‘The Incredible Lou Ferrigno’ to topline in a cheesy epic that could just about be titled Hercules in Outer Space. Since a lumpy space suit would cover Ferrigno’s mighty physique from view, the all-powerful one travels through the universe wearing nothing but his gladiatorial briefs.
A lot of it takes place on the moon, as Zeus and wife and daughter Hera and Athena toy from above with the fate of mortals. It is Hercules’ tasks to try to rescue the Princess Cassiopea from the clutches of her evil kidnappers, and given the changing times, the muscleman doesn’t have to battle cardboard monsters, but hi-tech mechanical beasts made of metal and which emit deadly laser blasts from their jaws.
Ferrigno is perfectly affable, and physically (if not physiognomally) he more than lives up to his billing. Sybil Danning, Mirella D’Angelo and Ingrid Anderson comprise a fetching trio of femmes.
