Excerpt: No film about Hercules is perfect and this new version with Dwayne Johnson is entertaining. The legendary myths are reduced to just that; myths. This Hercules story is more human and very mortal much like Brad Pitt as Achilles in Troy.
Excerpt: The story was a different take on the Hercules legend. I missed this in theaters and bought the bluray cheap. I'm glad I finally picked it up. I enjoyed the story, even if it didn't quite break through to being a great movie. It was definitely worth watching.
Excerpt: Dwayne Johnson is continuing to prove his action status. If he stays the course he will eventually become an action icon. Hercules brings him back to some Scorpion King territory and it works like a charm. The movie is filled with some good action and a decent plot.
Excerpt: This has always been one of my favorite 90's Disney animated film. I love the drawing style of the characters. The music is really fun and uplifting. Now onto Hercules finally on Blu ray. After it's only DVD release being non anamorphic.
Excerpt: Perfect marketing timing for Disney to release its version of the Hercules story just as The Rock dons his. But keeping it real is Disney's take on the son of Zues and Hera as he loses his powers after birth only to grow up attempting to reclaim them.
Summary: While you can admire Ratner's somewhat original take on the Hercules story, the way in which the trailer sold us the film had us believing that it was something that it was not. The mythical elements that lacked in the film ultimately let it down.
Summary: I was more captivated by the set design, scenery, costumes. Here we have Hercules and his Tag Team outside the square having to fight the enemy not only outside their walls but also the enemy within their walls. Too much gore for my liking spoilt what would have been an enjoyable movie.
