Storyline

After many centuries, Hercules gets bored living in Olympus (the home of the great Greek gods) and decides to move to... New York. But obviously, it is not easy for a man who lived in ancient Greece to get used to modern life. So, things get a little tricky, especially when Zeus sends a few gods to bring his semi-god son back to mount Olympus. Written by Chris Makrozahopoulos <makzax@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In the mid-2000s, the UK's BBC One showed the Trimark version, with Arnold's original accent throughout. This version also reveals that the original on location audio was seemingly never re-recorded, due to abrupt changes in ambient sound levels of dialogue, and background sounds. Thus, it plays as akin to a pre-release edit prior to the final release sound mix. See more »

Goofs

Traffic, including honking horns, can be heard during scenes on Mount Olympus, due to these scenes actually being filmed in New York City's Central Park. See more »

Quotes

[repeated line]
Hercules: I am Hercules.

Arnold VS. The Bear in Central Park.
13 September 2004 | by DarthVSithSee all my reviews

That scene is by far the funniest yet horrible scene in film legacy. Arnold is in a chariot with his date when somehow a bear is on the loose in Central Park. For no apparent reason he runs off to fight it. They cut to the bear, And it stands up. Clearly, you can imagine the trainer behind the camera saying "BEAR UP" and it stands up. Now when Arnold fights the bear, It is a man in a costume which looks like it was purchased in Harlem. The back of the mans neck is showing as clear as day while him (the bear) and arnold duke it out. The man is swinging his fists like a MILL. You just cant take your eyes off it. And if you do, you are missing out on the funniest man vs. man (in a animal costume) fight in Film PERIOD.
