Hercules (2014)
« on: September 06, 2015, 05:41:16 pm »

A movie about Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson has all the makings of a mega popcorn flick with the myth taking front and center story-wise. Unfortunately they forgot to actually write a script befitting the Legend. The movie isn't bad, but in my eyes, it failed to live up to something truly Epic. I didn't go into this thinking we would get something along the lines of Gladiator, but I certainly expected better than this. For a character with as much backstory as Hercules has, it's very lightweight. Also, something was off with how the direction of the film was going and it wasn't until I saw the end credits did it make sense. Brett Ratner. Made perfect sense why some of the comedic bits felt like they were shoehorned in with no payoff. Typical of a Ratner film. Sigh. For mindless entertainment, it's worth a Rent. This isn't a movie I will ever watch again though.

I feel like if Brett Ratner was going to do a Hercules movie, he would do Hercules In New York.  Just picture it, Gladiator meets Rush Hour with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Agree, nothing to write home about. At least it wasn't cheesy like some other mythological films (cough)Conan(cough, cough)
