Action, Adventure, Fantasy
All those giant monsters Hercules is fighting in the trailer? They're not really in the movie. They exist in a fantasy sequence in the first two minutes of Hercules, when a young storyteller is regaling some soldiers with an account of the Twelve Labors of Hercules. But the Hercules in Hercules is a legend, not a demigod. He's a normal (but incredibly strong) human man who allows his legend to be spread so he can intimidate his foes and earn a better living as a mercenary. So this is the Hercules story with all the larger-than-life mythology and magic stripped out. That is to say, it's a Hercules story that takes out all the interesting and exciting parts of the Hercules story. If Hercules had the guts to make its main character a total con man, that would at least be kind of interesting, but this Hercules is still an impossibly gifted warrior who can throw men around like they're action figures and decimate enemy combatants using just his fists. So he's still super, just...not quite as super? What the hell's the point of that? Aside from a couple pretty neat Rock action moments at the very end of the movie, there's just nothing worth recommending about this damn thing. Don't waste your time.(98 min.)
