Dwayne Johnson stars as the son of Zeus in this Brett Ratner-directed adaptation of Steve Moore's Radical Comics graphic novel The Thracian Wars. As the story opens, a haunted Hercules (Johnson) travels Greece with his five loyal companions, capitalizing on his heroic reputation by selling his services for gold. When a malevolent warlord threatens to thrust the kingdom of Thrace into chaos, however, its desperate ruler and his daughter turn to Hercules to restore the peace. In order to succeed, Hercules must once again summon the strength and valor that once made him a myth among men. Joseph Fiennes, Ian McShane, and Rufus Sewell co-star.~Jason Buchanan

A different twist on the legendary character from Greek mythology... Dwayne Johnson does a noteworthy performance as the superhuman, God-like Son of Zeus! Special effects are amazing and the 3D technology really adds some emphasis to this tale of a 'betrayed' hero (watch it to find out how)! A nice addition to my movie library! I enjoyed it!!!
Blu Ray movie was excellent was exciting and I watched it in 3D awesome

Hercules the God
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
This is quite a great movie. Especially if you like mythical types of story lines. The fighting. The scenery. Even the acting is god like in this movie. Get ready to be wowed when you watch this one and turn up the sound. I certainly was amazed by how much I really enjoyed this.
I love mythology movies...this one is no different. Totally different take on the Hercules hero...here he is portrayed as a superhero...but you find the truth that the real heroes are his friends as they make him into the demigod. Lots of action and i thought it had a great story!
This is no doubt one of the best Hercules movies made. Filled with love, action, drama and of course more than enough fighting. The actors are good and take the name and talents of Hercules to a new level. Good plots and storylines and have you begging for more even when the movie has come to an end. Well thought out movie. Good movie to add to one’s collection. Surely worth the purchase price.

We enjoyed watching this movie. Cast is good. Quality is good. Story is good.
This year of 2014, there have been two Hercules movies. The first, The Legend of Hercules, was decent, though it offered nothing unique. This one starring Dwayne Johnson has more development of the theme of courage and more unexpected plot twists. I approach most movies without a lot of expectations, knowing I’ll find a movie somewhat rewarding if the values, writing, and editing are good. This one gave me more enjoyment than I expected. Hercules is the natural choice for an ancient superhero. When you add themes of justice and the rights of the people and make that Hercules’ cause to fight for, he becomes as relatable as Superman, Batman, or Spiderman. One of the strengths of this superhero movie is that it’s not primarily about supernatural powers but about the meaning of courage. Hercules does have superhuman strength in this, but his victory always depends on triumphing over internal struggles first. His powers don’t come very naturally, so he’s easier to relate to. Hercules in this movie is more like John Henry, the American railroad worker superhero, than like a demigod. In fact, the movie goes to extra lengths to convince you he’s just a man, not a god. I feel like it developed the internal struggles of a superhero better than most superhero movies, and that made it more rewarding when he succeeds.
When Hercules is in action on this movie, it feels truly awesome because he has to work so hard to produce that superhuman strength. The movie does a great job with the pitched battle scenes. It is as rewarding to watch them as some of the great battles on the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The movie’s intensity level is a bit stronger than I like, but it really helps that the movie stays PG-13 instead of indulging in graphic gore.
I like the casting also, of John Hurt as the king who hires Hercules to fight his enemy, and Hercules’ several friends, and Hercules, played by Dwayne Johnson. His personality is such that he doesn't need to express much in order to reveal his character's mood or attitude. There are some touches of humor that add a lot, yet not so much that the movie gets silly.
The lasting satisfaction for me is how the Greek value of physique gets fused with the Biblical value of servant leadership, exerting courage to protect those who are weak. Hercules has a strong moral code on this. Sometimes it works well to have an antihero like Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean) be the center of a story, but that usually makes the movie more silly. There’s no blurry gray line between good and evil in this movie, but that’s not a weakness; it’s the natural way to present a character with such brute force as Hercules.
