Hercules and Lolaus (Kevin Sorbo; Michael Hurst) challenge a wealthy couple's (Ian Mune; Alison Bruce) practice of forcing slaves to battle wild animals as a form of sadistic entertainment. They deliberately get themselves thrown into prison and when the sadistic wife orders the gladiators to fight to the death, Hercules is brought forth to battle.
Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) attends a friend's wedding where Nemis the Centaur (Cliff Curtis) arrives and kidnaps the bride (Jacqueline Collen) and her maid of honor (Fiona Mogridge). Hercules is temporarily blinded as he seeks to rescue them and is forced to battle in the dark. Lucy Lawless guest stars as Lyla.
Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) aided by the alluring and powerful Atalanta (Cory Everson) confronts his wicked half-brother Ares, the god of war, who uses a band of boy-soldiers to quench his undying thirst for bloodshed. Hercules goes to Ares' cave, and there he sees his wicked half-brother, rising from behind a pool of blood, his huge bulbous skull-head atop a body of mangled corpses of fallen warriors. A fierce battle ensues.
