This is action/adventure with a vengeance. Britisher Eddie Chase wipes out dozens of villains with hard-fisted and inventive methods with his feisty lover, Nina, a scientist. It’s the action that's the focus, not history or Hercules. Narrator Gildart Jackson handles a variety of stock characters with breathless English intonations. He's good at portraying the denizens of foreign lands but not great with his depictions of women. (He adds a bit of a lisp, for example.) At one point he “does” a Sean Connery-type fellow; the tone and cadence are nicely familiar and fun. In the end, this is hard to put down.
