This was one of my favorite cosmic myths until this film. The action was a ridiculous slow motion. What was that lion looking thing? Did Asylum make this film? Couldn't they hire any actors? Kellan Lutz? Did the "Twilight" series zap him of his acting ability too? Sure I knew how it ended, but at least try to entertain me. I would have never believed I would be pining for the old black and white Hercules movies dubbed in English.

Hercules was dull, lifeless, and couldn't read a line. What was with the buzz cut? It rates a razzy. I can't wait for the spoof.

Parental Guide: No F-bombs, sex, or nudity. Woman faking an orgasm for Zeus.

Excited by a great trailer, I dived at the chance to see this on the big screen in London. I enjoyed it, but its a bit of a mixed bag if I'm honest. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with the movie and as a stand up action picture it works very well; but for a sword and sandal epic, it's just feels a bit "small screen" at times. Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Deep Blue Sea) occupies the director's chair and I've been a big fan of his work for ages but it's a journeyman effort bereft of flair and creativity. The gladiator scenes looked great on the big screen and the fight choreography is really good. Some of the CGI was poor, there's a bit when he fights the lion which isn't great but that's a small gripe. I was really surprised by Scott Adkins as King Amphitryon, Hercules earthly father and ultimate nemesis, I last saw him in Expendables 2, he has far more lines in this and is required to show a decent range of emotions which I found rather good and Liam Garrigan as Hercules brother and heir to the throne, he's suitably sniveling but is sympathetically scripted at times (how would you feel having a demi-god for a brother!). Kellan Lutz is fine as the musclebound hulk and to be fair I understood every line he uttered, they seem to have plastered him with false tan though and he is massively muscled so at times it looks like he's next up to pose for the judges in a bodybuilding competition - nothing wrong with that, I just thought "crikey look at his face!" when I first saw him. The set dressing is great and the varied locations lend an air of geography and scope to the proceedings and some of the CGI does it's job really well; there's a bit when he's swinging blocks around that looks quite good.Read more ›

sure this film has it's faults but I think the overall heavy criticism of this film is unwarranted.
I loved the film personally and I thought Kellan certainly was a believable Hercules and his acting wasn't that bad... come on people!!!
yes the script could have been better, but for me it was enjoyable and the time passed quickly when I watched it.
I would watch it again no qualms which for me is the mark of a good film if not a great one.

Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom.

Through battles and gladiator death matches, Hercules embarks on an odyssey to overthrow the King and restore peace to the land, all the while keeping his lovely hair and golden tan....

I've seen a hell of a lot of movies, and this one is far from the worst film I've seen. Its bad, don't get me wrong, but it stars the boring one from Twilight, with a girl from Hollyoaks playing his mother, and when the best thing about the film is a B-movie action star, what else do you expect?

Harlins film haven't been prolific since Cliffhanger, and that was twenty years ago, but they are as you would expect, cheesy, meat and potatoes action movies trying to do something a little different.

Lutz gets his motivation from a forest, as he woodenly goes from set piece to set piece, smouldering like a limp bonfire, and pouting to the camera as if someone is following him taking selfies.

If the film had taken out the element of slow motion, it would probably be about 20 minutes long, as the slow motion is overused here in a painful way.

So all in all its a pretty rough movie, but it's watchable, for all the wrong reasons..

Watch this and make up your own mind.
After listening to all the bad reviews and press this movie has had, I didn't fancy it much.
Having watched it, I'm glad that I did. It may not have big named stars but it is of no consequence as the movie is entertaining and action packed. At the heart of the tale is a love story, maybe not to everyone's taste but I didn't mind that. As a whole the movie was a pleasant surprise, I am glad that I gave it a go. Surprisingly I enjoyed it.

Awful acting, dodgy special effects and dire script. The only one who could act was Liam McIntyre from Spartacus. And after the success of Spartacus you have to wonder what he was doing in such an awful film.
