Hercules The Avenger is a 1965 Italian produced action-adventure flick directed by Maurizio Lucidi. The movie opens in the Kingdom of Syracuse where the Queen's husband has recently died. Although the Queen has a number of suitors, she has no desire to ever marry again and wants to find Hercules and get him to protect her. Meanwhile, Hercules (professional body-building legend and former Mr. Universe turned actor Reg Park) is taking a break from his adventures and enjoying a relaxing vacation when he gets called to rescue a village from some menacing lions. Hercules's son volunteers and is attacked and badly wounded. The physical injuries are actually the least of his problems as Hercules soon learns that the Goddess Gaia has taken possession of his son's soul and imprisoned it in the underworld. Hercules must risk everything to save his son. At the same time Hercules is battling for his son in the underworld, Gaia sends her son to the surface world to replace him. The Queen of Syracuse takes the imposter Hercules into her kingdom to protect her and finds that she cannot get rid of him when she learns of his true identity. Hercules must not only save his son, he must save the entire Kingdom of Syracuse.moreless
