“The Legend of Hercules,” is a feature film about the mythical Greek hero who was sent to slavery by his own step-father. Hercules returns and fights his way back to his rightful place in his kingdom.
As I entered the movie theater to watch a later showing, I became even more excited to watch this film.
Sadly, after only seeing the movie half way through the film, I realized and was stunned by the movie’s poor quality.
The effects could have been better, instead of looking extremely unrealistic.
There was a scene in the movie where Hercules throws two huge rocks but as I watched they did not seem to look heavy or as detailed as they could have.
Even worse than the effects was the the dialogue, being that the film was written by four people I find that the script should have been better. The script was written by Renny Harlin, Sean Hood, Daniel Giat and by Giulio Steve.
Being that Renny has directed films like Deep Blue Sea, Die Hard 2, 12 Rounds and many other TV shows on TBS, you would think more effort and better vocabulary and grammar would be given in this film.
Aside from the failure of that portion of the movie there were some good scenes. The entertainment of the fights were very exciting.
I personally love fight scenes that show great actions.You can never go wrong with the fight for love and honor, but you can when the film is being Rated PG-13 and seen by children.
This now begs to question is this the ideal way of life we want to show the children watching this film. Now back to the complete failed portion of this movie.
We all know fashion is in but what happened to a little decency. ‘WHY’, ‘WHERE’, “WHO” decided on these dreadful outfits in my opinion.
Overall I personally do not think this movie stood to the standards of the “Original Hercules.”
I will not deny the fact that the actors in this movie could have been chosen differently.
Someone such as Gerald Butler would have been better suited for the role of Hercules.His whole demeanor would have blown this movie up just due to his acting skills and his past experience in the different movies he has played a huge role in was 300.
This film has been deemed as a bad movie and notorious for its terrible reviews.
“It looks like we may have our first contender for worst reviewed movie of the year,” said Kristen Acuna of the business insider.
“A movie so ugly and woeful that you’ll wish you had superman strength to pluck your own eyeballs out of your head,” stated Indiewire.
