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 may sound like a backhanded compliment to praise this sometimes cheesy movie for never taking itself too seriously, but in a summer of bloated spectacles, this modesty should not be underestimated. show more
It's a supernatural epic that never feels quite colossal or consequential enough, as well as an utter waste of Dwayne Johnson‘s unique dopey-flirty charm. show more
A little slow to start but hey, look at "The Rock"! I loved the Roman and Greek Mythologies in school and loved seeing versions played out in this movie. Great special effects and stage sets. Storyline is a little lagging at times but the characters pull it through. Love the camaraderie of the troup. Great action scenes. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, such is life. Loved the ending. ".....Hercules...." .
This is one of the best I've seen this summer well worth the money. Must watch Good action and not phony. Can't wait for the next.
great example of how to ruin a legendary epic...the writing is simply ridiculous
