"These ten sword&sandal movies are nice and entertaining to see and till now, some of them, not yet in DVD so I bought the pack, the price was more than cheap and to lower its cost it was made in Singapoore. Now the problem, the quality of the image was so terrible that I painted the pack in green color and threw it into the see. So I would appreciate very much if this company or another produce some more movies of that genre, the aim should be more quality and in that case I will be a sure buyer. Thanks."

"The three Tarzan movies on the ADVENTURE 10 PACK are also available on Action Classics 50 Movie Pack DVD Collection, from MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT. All but one of the Hercules films here may be found on the Warriors 50 Movie Pack Collection.

10 Adventure Flicks of Public Domain Goodness

"Adventure 10 Movie Pack is a collection of 10 adventure movies mostly featuring Hercules & Tarzan that have only one thing in common: they are all public domain and as such it is possible for them to be presented in highly affordable collections. I paid $7.98 for my set and that comes down to about 80 cents per movie. The way that movie tickets cost nowadays, you really cannot complain about this collection.
This deal is even better when you consider that many of the movies in this collection are available as individual movie DVD's at prices of $5 and higher. Many of the movies in this collection are presented in better condition than they are from other DVD companies.
All in all, a great deal for the money."
Difficult to rate -- depends on what you like!

"What we have here are older "public domain" movies that anyone can record and sell -- that's why this 10-pack is so cheap.
On a total of THREE DVDs, you'll get THREE Tarzan Movies, SIX Hercules movies, and one "sort of" Hercules movie.
The Tarzan titles (all black-and-white) are:
1. Tarzan and the Green Goddess, (Herman Brix as Tarzan, aka: Bruce Bennett!)
2. Tarzan's Revenge, (Glenn Morris as Tarzan)
3. Tarzan and the Trappers, (Gordon Scott as Tarzan)
These are actually three very old, but pretty darn good Tarzan films. You can get them individually at Dollar Stores for a buck each in thin cardboard packaging, the print quality being about the same as these copies.
The Hercules titles are:
1. Son of Hercules: The Land of Darkness
2. Hercules Against the Moonmen
3. Hercules and the Captive Women
4. Colussus and the Amazon Queen
5. Hercules and the Tyrants of Babylon
6. Hercules Unchained
7. Devil of the Desert Versus the Son of Hercules
These are very poor garish color prints but you probably won't do better elsewhere. The films were just poorly made on a really el-cheapo budget. Most of these films appear to have been produced in Italy or thereabouts.
Frankly-speaking, these flicks are pretty awful... UNLESS you're a big fan of old, cheesey Hercules films. In that case, you've hit the jackpot! *.*
From my view, the three Tarzan films are worth the price of the package. My brother told me that he particularly likes this package because he enjoys sitting in his lounge chair in front of his TV and dozing through old black and white Tarzan films -- since they're all on Disc One (plus one Hercules entry), he can watch Tarzan to his heart's content for hours at a time... sort of.
If you want the very same Tarzan movies plus TWO more (on 2 discs), you probably would want to opt for this DVD -- the prints are a little better too:
AMC: Tarzan of the Apes: Collection
Anyway, don't be expecting anything great with this package beyond what I've told you and you won't be disappointed!"
