Hercules: The Legendary Journeys – The Circle of Fire (TV Movie 1994). 1h 31m | Not Rated

“This is the third pilot TV movie that jump-started the u0026quot;Hercules: The Legendary Journeysu0026quot; TV series, where Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) sets on a quest to retrieve Prometheusu0026#39;s torch in order to restore fire to the land, which has been stolen from the evil Hera over her hatred of mankind.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe plot of the movie goes at a fairly fast pace and, like the previous movie, Hercules travels with a woman which happens to be named Deianeira (Tawny Kitaen), but I am assuming it is a different character than the one with the same name played by Renee Ou0026#39;Connor in the previous movie. There is less action in this movie than the previous entry, but you still see Hercules fight a few bad guys here and there. There is also less emphasis on subplots; this story mainly focuses on Herculesu0026#39; journey to find the torch with Deianeira, leaving few plot twists and a predictable outcome. However, you do see Zeus showcase his powers more than in the previous movies, blasting Hercules away with his hands, generating a windstorm and hurling lightening bolts at people. As the King of the Gods, it is great to see him demonstrate his mighty powers more.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe New Zealand countryside setting is refreshing, but I thought the costumes are less colorful and the buildings were pretty bland (Herau0026#39;s temple looks like an unfinished wood factory). The music score by Joseph LoDuca is attractive and mysterious and the acting is pretty spot-on, with some good chemistry between Sorbo and Kitaen and a good dose of humor.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie does drag a little towards the middle, but other than that, this is a pretty fun TV movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGrade B-“
