    Director Brett Ratner could boast solid source material in the five-issue Radical Comics series Hercules: The Thracian Wars by the late Steve Moore. They had a shot at something here, and they blew it. show more

    It's been a terrible summer for movies but this one was better than I thought it'd be. Dwayne Johnson wasn't just a juiced up Stallone, he could actually act. It was worth the money.
