Ents24 Rating


Genre: Action / Fantasy
Director: Brett Ratner
Running time: 98 mins

Did you enjoy The Legend Of Hercules, a dreary sword 'n' sandals story starring charisma vacuum Kellan Lutz, but wish that it starred ex-wrestler and better-looking person Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson instead? Wishes do come true, as this shouty retelling of the Hercules legend proves. Hercules has overcome the twelve challenges that proved his godly power, but he has also lost his family and turned his back on the heavens. Instead, he leads a band of mercenaries who are as ruthless as he is, and together they find solace in smashing things and laying waste to their enemies. The King Of Thrace hires them to train his army, leading to a barrage of sword-swinging, slow motion and moments of heroic realisation.
