  • 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...." .

    great example of how to ruin a legendary epic...the writing is simply ridiculous
