Everyone knows the legend of Hercules and his twelve labors. Our story begins after the labors, and after the legend. Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.
 





Also starring Aksel Hennie, Rufus Sewell, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson and Tobias Santelmann, Hercules is set to hit theaters July 25th, 2014.

I hope this doesn't disappoint.

This looks cool for the most...

It sure feels like a ghost town around here this weekend. It must be the calm before the storm because I know next weekend is going to be bananas with the SDCC news and rumors flying left and right.

That armed for battle clip raised my hopes a little bit. I might actually go see this now.
DrKinsolving - 7/19/2014, 2:42 PM
I can't stand Ratner but I'm looking forward to seeing The Rock in action

@JoJo1982
No, it's more a Brett Ratner sucks type thing. Also, Dwayne Johnson is awesome, but he's no Hercules.

@alexander

Brett Ratner is the only thing about this movie is off putting about this movie
But the action in this movie looks on point and The Rock is pretty much Hercules in real life anyways

I have yet to see a film where the Rock impresses me.

Merc, then you obviously haven't watched Tooth Fairy. Riveting stuff.

@DrunkenNukem
What in the heck is "Expandables"?
DrunkenNukem - 7/19/2014, 3:39 PM
sorry i meant The Expendables
DrunkenNukem - 7/19/2014, 3:40 PM
@blackandyellow...i wish
blackandyellow - 7/19/2014, 3:40 PM
Alexander, I believe The Expandables is a porn about banging fat chicks in yoga pants.

@B&Y

Lol.

Flop.

Rock is a cool dude, but this looks pretty bad. Ratner just doesn't bring anything special to the table. He's just an average filmmaker. There have been dozens of movies just like this. The action looks average, the plot looks lame, and the overall look of the movie is pretty drab. This looks like B movie version of Gladiator. At least movies like 300 and Immortals had some amazing visual flare.

I hope they leave out the part where Hercules had 100s of lovers including young men...

Boycott.

He impressed me the most in The Rundown. Totally underrated movie, I think.
Ramiel - 7/19/2014, 5:32 PM
I really like the action in this. Movie may still suck.
kevberg - 7/19/2014, 9:57 PM
its gotta be better than that hunk of ass remake of Conan w Momoa.

the kid at the beginning was more intense than momoa!
kevberg - 7/19/2014, 9:59 PM
Still say the Hydra/ swamp scene looks badass.
loki668 - 7/20/2014, 12:59 AM
I wish that there was a way for this film to succeed and, yet, have Ratner fail.
loki668 - 7/20/2014, 4:01 AM
Here's how you REALLY piss people off: *ahem*

Jason Momoa was a better Conan than Arnold Schwarzenegger


*runs from thread*

@kevberg - that entire beginning to that movie was awesome! So perfect. I even think there were some homage frames to the original Arnie version. I've watched it about 7 times.

True fact - of the 7 times watching the movie, I've never once made it to the end of Momoa's section with out falling sound asleep. I have no idea if the movie is even good or not, or what the hell the plot is... I'm determined to get through it one day.
