THE LEGEND OF HERCULES stars Kellan Lutz as the mythical Greek hero â the son of Zeus, a half-god, half-man blessed with extraordinary strength. Betrayed by his stepfather, a tyrant king, and exiled and sold in to slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom. Through harrowing battles and gladiatorial death matches, Hercules embarks on a legendary odyssey to overthrow the King and restore peace to the land.
This is an entertaining DVD version of the ancient Greek hero and his origins. I would say that the actor who portrays Hercules is perhaps miscast because he looks more like a modern day policeman than an ancient Greek.
I thought this movie was gonna be Rubbish when i started watching it, but it was a great Action packed fun Movie and a nice Romantic ending to it instead of a Sad one. Loved the fighting and absolutely enjoyed the whole Movie. The New Pompeii is the one to watch too as it was Brilliant and just full of action. Kiefer Sutherland was Awfully Polite compared to his fierce role in 24 but an Evil devil nevertheless. Cracking Movie and one shouldn't be disappointed with either movies although Pompeii was by far my Favourite.
Sometimes people take watching films too seriously and film is one of these times. Of course the story is nonsense, it is never going to win an Oscar for anything. But what it is, is a great piece of disengage your brain and just enjoy the show. The acting is at times over the top, that's OK! The special effects are great and the action is excellent. What do you want? If you Oscar winning movies then watch Gladiator and Ben Hur!!!
Much better than a lot of films about this topic. There are a couple of scenes where the acting could have been a tad better, but overall these can be forgiven as they don`t ruin the film in any way at all. A good point of realism is that all of the scenes where someone is sat on a horse is that a very good attempt has been made to hide the use of stirrups, that didn`t exist in that era. So well done on a small point that most films fail to do.
