        Someone had the incredibly stupid idea of showing Hercules' infamous tasks within the first five minutes and then tell a somewhat conventional story of antique battles and rebellion. The Rock is a charismatic hero and his team works, too. Without this cast this movie would have fallen to pieces. As it is, the action is decent, the result entertaining enough and thankfully it doesn't take itself too seriously. But still, whoever came up with this simplistic plot should be smacked over the head.

        I like that the movie commits to it's "revisionist" take on Greek myth by going so far as to make the main characters all skilled liars. While that material is fun, the rest is perfunctory and a little dull.

        Ratner tries to do something different with the character only to end up ticking off every cliche by the end.

        Director Brett Ratner looks at the man behind the legend in the big-budget action film Hercules. Based on a graphic novel, the story follows the Greek warrior Hercules and his band of mercenaries as they come to the aid of the King of Thrace to help him fight off a warlord. The film features an impressive cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, and John Hurt. However, the performances are a little weak; as the characters come off as one-dimensional stereotypes. Still, that's about par for an action film, and it's made up for by the exciting fight sequences. And, the score brings a lot of energy to the film. While Hercules doesn't exactly live up to expectations, it's alright for a sword and sandals style adventure.
