Review: Hercules

6 November 2014 10:07 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

When your father is a god, your life is bound to be pretty interesting. As a result, it is never less than astonishing how often the story of Hercules ignores the rich source material, transplanting the demigod to whatever environment is currently in vogue with diminished results. Twice this year, we were treated to variant interpretations of the Greek myth with vastly different results. Coming in second and by far the inferior of the two, Brett Ratner’s Hercules is one of the weakest films of the year. Once more one wonders how Ratner keeps getting hired since clearly his limited directorial vision has been spent.

The film, out now from Paramount Home Entertainment, claims to be inspired by Radical Comics’ The Thracian Wars limited series, but veers far enough from it to be another story entirely. Hercules (Dwayne Johnson), cursed by Zeus’ wife Hera, has completed his twelve labors but remains a lost soul, »

Blu-ray Review: Dwayne Johnson’s Ferociously Generic Warrior Tale ‘Hercules’

4 November 2014 3:18 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Dwayne Johnson slams and jams in the bland “Hercules,” the “Space Jam” he never made when known as a brow-raised wrestler under his birth name “The Rock.” This ferociously generic take on the mythological hero focuses on Hercules with a group of mercenaries (played by Rufus Sewell among others) as they train a group of gee-shucks farmers to become warriors, while they project legends of immortality onto Johnson’s secretly mortal hero.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Instead of being fun with the overall effect of a Whitesnake guitar solo, the movie is a big yawn woken up temporarily by an amusing kick or punch. Directed with definitive indifference by Brett Ratner, “Hercules” is a heavily manufactured period action movie more than a potentially lightly amusing one, even from its lead actor who can regularly chew on goofy machismo and earn those comparisons of being the next Schwarzenegger. Johnson is this vehicle’s main spectacle, »

Following roles in American films such as Chernobyl Diaries and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, the actress is poised for a breakout, starring alongside global superstar Dwayne Johnson in Hercules, which debuts on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD November 4.

Satanic Sunday: Cults devoted to the Devil

26 October 2014 9:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cloaked in hooded robes, hell-bent on destruction and ready to sacrifice innocents to please their master- worshipers of the Devil are an easy bunch to stereotype in popular portrayals. Ranked from worst to best, the extent to which they work with or against cliché and manage to be entertaining on film is profiled in the following list. This discussion does contain some spoilers!

Daniel Stamm’s “The Last Exorcism

The Last Exorcism (2010)

The Last Exorcism builds upon the skepticism of its main character, a man who performs exorcisms to give religious zealots peace of mind and as a social service to prevent any real harm to people accused of being possessed. The alleged possession and abuse of a timid country girl occupies most of the film, with a cult showing up in its final frenzied moments. Keeping the characters involved with this cult a secret, it can still be said »

'Hercules' Blu-ray Preview: Metal Weapons | Exclusive

20 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While fans still have a few more weeks before Hercules debuts on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD, starting November 4, this action-adventure will be available on Digital HD October 21. We have an exclusive preview that takes fans behind-the-scenes with director Brett Ratner and star Aksel Hennie.

Aksel Hennie plays Tydeus, one of the deadly mercenaries in Hercules' group, who brandishes a pair of deadly axes as his primary weapons. This video is part of the "Weapons" featurette on the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray, where we see footage of Aksel Hennie's Tydeus in action, using these twin blades to take out any enemy he sees in front of him.

We also hear from an unidentified crew member, who reveals that they came up with a device allowing Aksel Hennie to hang these weapons on his belt for easy access, and that the actor was rarely seen without the metal weapons on set. »
