Little Hercules

DVD Release: April 6, 2010
Little Hercules


Terry “Hulk” Hogan, Elliott Gould, Robin Givens and Judd Nelson co-star in this fantasy comedy that begins on Mt. Olympus, home of the Greek gods. Twelve-year-old Hercules (Richard Sandrak), son of Zeus (Hogan), decides to leave the mountain and visit 21st-century Burbank, California, to learn more about the day-to-day life of mortal men. This sets into motion a comedic culture clash of mythical proportions as the young god meets and interacts with various human characters.

Dove Review

“Little Hercules” is a unique fantasy that brings 12-year-old Hercules to Earth. He winds up meeting a friend, Curtis, and stays overnight with Curtis and his mother Dana (Robin Givens). Due to a bet between his father Zeus (Hulk Hogan) and Marduk (Paul Wight), Hercules is able to use his fantastic strength only three times before he will be left without it. He takes to life on Earth and winds up entering olympic games held at Fontana High School. Meanwhile, Zeus and Marduk fight over Mt. Olympus and over Hercules.

This imaginative story is something kids and families will enjoy. It features scenes of Mt. Olympus and mighty Zeus tossing lightning bolts, as well as Hercules’ incredible feats of strength. We are happy to award “Little Hercules” our Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages.
