I'm sorry, but having no mythical beasts in a film about the greatest mythical beast-slayer ever is pretty much a money-back scenario for me. I kept thinking: where are the monsters?

'Hercules' is a mediocre movie; it's not bad enough for me to say it's a waste, but it's not good enough to recommend it. [Full review in Spanish]

Hollywood is now officially 0-2 on Hercules movies in 2014. The first try was just bad, but this one feels like a waste.

The climax could've been better and while the battles scenes aren't as epic as Gladiator, the film, along with its sprinkling of tongue-in-cheek lines, makes for a fun watch.

While the action sequences are decently staged, they would have been much better if I'd actually been able to see them, the film being shot in a gloomy murk which 3D does absolutely nothing to help.

A greatest hits of sweat-drenched, sword-slinging machismo.

The overall giddy joy of Johnson's performance is infectious and spreads out to both his co-stars and the giant battles that fill the last third.

Director Brett Ratner's vision to debunk all of the mythology behind Hercules is a unique one, but it ultimately paves the way for a generic and often boring film.

Johnson has a ball with the role, and there's something to be said for the exciting third act, but that doesn't make up for the sheer drudgery of the first two-thirds of the film that feature terrible pacing and very little characterization.

The movie could use more of its surprising if intermittent wit and less of its unsurprising if efficiently staged sword-and-sandal violence.

Prejudicado pela irregularidade do roteiro e por uma direção que transforma as sequências de ação em momentos de puro tédio.

It's Dwayne Johnson, the artist formerly known as "The Rock," playing Hercules, the strongman demigod of Greek legend. Movies don't come any more basic, and straight-forward, than that.

May be a more tongue in cheek approach to the legend and anti-hero, but it works well as a breezy action adventure with a slight comic bent.
August 14, 2014
Its incredible competence prevents it even from being ironic, campy fun.

Best to skip this arid endeavor and instead watch Joel and the Bots tackle Hercules Against the Moon Men on MST3K.

Predictable adventure has lots of violence, decent actors.

Color me "surprised" in regards to Brett Ratner's Hercules, an unexpectedly thrilling, smart and at times moving new take on everyone's favorite demigod.

The preposterously pumped Dwayne Johnson confidently steps into the reinforced sandals of the legendary ubermensch for a terrific swords-and-shields action spectacle.

The film absolutely delivers in the realm of Dwayne Johnson participating in massive fight scenes and epic battles.

The result is a film of which I can't exactly recommend one rush out and see right away, but when one does decide to give it a shot, I think you'll be surprised by how entertaining Hercules actually is.
