I thought this was a decent film to watch! The action was decent and the Rock put in a good performance. Overall, a decent movie to watch on a lazy Sunday.

I never thought I'd be bored watching this movie, but I kind of was. I appreciate the cynical twist on the legend, and while it is played well, I'm not convinced it was better than just adapting the actual legends. While the Rock does well as Hercules, I felt like his companions really screamed "Sif and the Warriors Three".

I enjoyed it. The Rock did a great job. Good twist on the Hercules tales.

Another movie featuring one of Hollywood’s most famous stars – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. This movie follows the tale of one of the most recognizable names in the lore of ancient Greece, Hercules. In Greek mythology, Hercules is the son of Zeus, so one would probably expect that he would have a relatively easy life. However, Hercules still lives a life of misery as he suffers. He finds that this feeling is mitigated through combat. He gains comrades who are similar in nature in that they also love combat. However, this is not perhaps the best movie to watch for those who are looking for a real Greek mythology movie. This is more like a regular action movie for those who like combat and action.

This movie is the worst ancient themed film available.
The actors are robotic and all looked like they are reading off a tele-prompter.
As for costume design, appears like they couldn't even bother to custom fit the breast plate to Mr. Johnson. So for the entirety of the show his pectorals end basically at his collar bone which makes for a very strange perspective.

Lots of fighting and arrows and spears and stuff.

I watched Hercules with little to no expectations. Good fun, big war, simple storyline. Not enough monsters to conquer but he and his mercenary troupe did what they needed to- to beat the adversary.

Draws heavily on Hercules: The Epic Journeys, but without the scholarship and humor. Nor does it provide Dwayne Johnson with much of a chance to show off his physical and acting chops.
Still. it's a good flick for a Saturday Matinee, with some nice action sequences and a solid story.
I recommend it as a way to best enjoy your popcorn and beer.

A nice movie with "Dwayne Johnson"( also know as "the Rock"Wrestler) as "Hercules". This Movie shows that if you have a good team you can do anything.

Average. Few surprises. Good head-bashing action.

Best moment:

Amphiaraus: My time...
...
Amphiaraus: Do you mind? I was having a moment!
Hercules: You're welcome.
