Hercules (Kellan Lutz), the son of Zeus, must choose between love and destiny.
" It delivers what it promises, which is muscular guys in skimpy clothes fighting and howling, as well as some large-scale digitally enhanced battle sequences. "
" You could ask for more -- an actual script, maybe? -- but Harlin covers most of the basics. Or, perhaps more accurately, he leaves them uncovered. "
" Director Juno Mak might have pulled off this potpourri if it weren't for a cop-out ending. "
" Cross-pollinated by sword-and-sandal flicks 300 and Gladiator,this Hercules can't muster the visual punch of the first nor the character depth of the latter. "
" Essentially a Monday Night Raw episode with mythological dressing. "
" A wannabe outrageous gangster saga seems patched together from spare genre parts from a generation ago. "
" It's amazing to think there were grown-ups behind the making of The Legend of Hercules. "
" The Legend of Hercules may not track, but Harlin still knows how to set up a rousing circus. "
" The only thing epic about The Legend of Hercules is what a failure it is. "
" The whole thing is a total bore. "
" There's nothing mythic about this Hercules. "
" This painfully feeble version of the strongman story fails on every level, from Lutz's wooden acting to the styrofoam special effects. "
" While the role may not call for a master thespian, it at least begs someone who can emote without looking like he's straining to execute a dead lift. "
