    The Legend of Hercules
    The heroic son of Zeus embraces his incredible destiny by fighting to reclaim his kingdom from his villainous stepfather in this sweeping mythological adventure from director Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2). Born half-man/half-god and imbued with awe-inspiring superhuman strength, Hercules (Kellan Lutz) falls into a forbidden romance that quickly incurs the wrath of his calculating stepfather, the King. Subsequently exiled and forced into slavery, the heroic Hercules fights for his life as a gladiator, and vows to free his people from the tyranny of the evil monarch. Roxanne McKee, Johnathon Schaech, and Rade Serbedzija co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      The story of Hercules's impossible tasks, is abandoned (and only makes a cameo in a scene where he kills a lion) and instead it's been replaced with a meathead's view of Ridley Scott's, Gladiator. The story and characters are as shallow as kiddie pools, the editing never slows down the pace which is tiring after the first twenty minutes, the same establishing shots are used in the very first shot of every scene, the music also doesn't know how to tone down, as that the climax of each scene is accompanied with large, "rousing" crescendo, the writing is awful and gives you no look into the mind of the characters (at least I hope they had more going on in their heads than what was expressed), there is no acting to speak of, and the visual effects look like they're from a Sci-Fi Channel movie. To add to my disappointment, I also discovered that IMDb doesn't have a "0 star" rating, what the hell?

      I first saw this film less than a month ago, but had to watch it again to review it because I couldn' remember a thing about it. As with his 60's predecessor in the role, Steve Reeves, physique rather than acting ability was the main criterion for casting Kellan Lutz. Fortunately little acting was required. What little plot there was served only as an excuse for one combat after another. The slaying of the Nemean Lion was the only one of the legendary labors of Hercules that made it into the film. Although Greek boxing could be brutal, gladiatorial combats (which originated in early Roman funeral rites) were not found in ancient Greece. The target audience for this film, though, would be the attendees at the Colosseum.

      This movie is terrible. The effects are cheaply made. The Nemean Lion looks unconvincing. The story is not that good. It lacks back story on a lot of characters. The acting is all around bad. The actors are stupid, forgettable and unlikable. I got so excited watching it in theaters and it became a flop. All the effects, story and acting had ruined the whole movie for me so I'm never watching it again. The Legend of Hercules is so forgettable. I rather watch Hercules with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson than this piece of garbage. If you're looking for the good movies featuring Hercules, bypass this one. I'm telling you as a fan of things in general, bypass this one. This movie will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

      This an average movie deserve 3 stars, it was a good concept but felt like it was rushed, and there was some really bad acting. Reason I got this movie and I gave it a 4 star was for the 3D, I enjoying watching 3D films at home. Despite that the film is bad the 3D effects were amazing specially in the slow-mo fighting scenes. It has good 3D depth and some of the scenes item will pop out the screen. If your one of those 3D enthusiast you will enjoy the effects on this 3D film. I viewed this film in my LG OLED65E6P and OPPO 203.

      I just don’t know how or why movies like this get made. Kellen Lutz is a terrible actor. He should just resign himself to being a supporting actor and learn from better actors. This movie is awful in so many ways - the ADR for the ‘big battle’ is so cringingly obvious, that it made me stop watching right then and there. I feel bad for Scott Adkins being in this hot mess. He is too talented to be in these B movies.

      I purchase this 3d movie in Blu ray because I have a 3d player. I enjoy 3d movies.This was not a bad 3d movie especially since I got a very good price on the purchase. The movie was exciting to watch, good background , good storyline, enjoyed the acting, and the action. It was well worth the money I put into it. I will enjoy watching this movie and I'm sure I will many more times. I enjoy this era of time that it was filmed and the theme.

      Zeus is NOT pleased. This movie takes great liberties with the legend of Hercules, demi-god and man of extreme physical strength. Hercules is constantly being defeated and captured. The fights, already poor, are constantly being interrupted by poorly done slow-motion sequences. Dialogue is laughable and the actors are downright awful. All in all, I would not recommend this movie to anyone, especially if they are a mythology fan.

      This is not the Rock's Hercules movie. Hercules turned into a PG-13 love story. It may be the Spartan warrior in me that wanted this to be an rated Hercules. It's hard to see a head severed and no blood what so ever if they were going to tone down the rated then they should have turned down the action decapitation as well. Red Box rental but wouldn't recommend this as a purchase.
