Likely a perfect fit. I've previously shared that I thought Syfy should pick up the series for American TV, and they now have done so. It hasn't aired in the USA, nor has it been available on any format accessible to USA audiences. In fact, it had previously only released in a select few countries. And now Syfy has acquired the first two seasons of French fantasy/action series Metal Hurlant. The series premiered on French television on October 27, 2012 on France 4, and soon after, broadcast rights for various European countries such as Germany, Austria, Luxembourg were bought, but no USA rep. I expected that, with a handful of actors recognizable to American audiences, this would surely be available to USA audiences a lot sooner; but better late than never. Recapping... Announced at the MIPCom (the annual TV and entertainment market held in Cannes in October) in 2011, Michael Jai White co-stars (alongside Rutger Hauer, »

We've been talking about the "Metal Hurlant Chronicles" around these parts for what feels like forever, and finally we have some good news... We'll finally be able to see it too!

Tom Jolliffe on the must-see straight-to-video action films of 2014...
If you’re a little fed up of the never ending stream of remakes, kid friendly PG13 (12A or 15 here) CGI heavy theatrics and Marvel/DC action films that fill up the multiplexes, or you’re no stranger to the unrepentant, simple delights of a bit of straight to video (or Netflix) action, then here is a list of the best to look out for this year.
As big screen action caters more and more for younger audiences, straight to video still largely offers a bit more adult entertainment. What it might lack in big budget thrills it makes up for with F-bombs and gallons of blood (if that’s your thing). As for myself, alongside a steady upbringing of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sly Stallone and Bruce Willis in the late 80’s and 90’s, I’ve also had more than my share »

Here in the UK, there's a little under two months to go before Kellan Lutz (Twilight, Immortals) slips on the sandals for The Legend of Hercules, and Lionsgate has released a new poster trailer for the critically-mauled mythological actioner, which is directed by Renny Harlin of Die Hard 2 and Cliffhanger fame....
"In Ancient Greece 1200 B.C., a queen succumbs to the lust of Zeus to bear a son promised to overthrow the tyrannical rule of the king and restore peace to a land in hardship. But this prince, Hercules, knows nothing of his real identity or his destiny. He desires only one thing: the love of Hebe, Princess of Crete, who has been promised to his own brother. When Hercules learns of his greater purpose, he must choose: to flee with his true love or to fulfill his destiny and become the true hero of his time. The story »

Force of Execution, 2013.
Directed by Keoni Waxman.
Alexander Coates' (Seagal) criminal empire has been good to him - and devastating to his enemies - until his number one hit man, Roman Hurst, messes up what should have been a routine hit. Alexander spares his protege's life but cripples his hands, thus 'retiring' Hurst forever. Before long, though, Alexander realizes that he'll need Hurst's help one last time when Iceman, a ruthless killer, surfaces.
Steven Seagal returns with another cinematic (or straight to video) opus. In the last decade a new Seagal film would appear with great frequency. Sometimes, three or four a year would pop up in (wipes away a tear) Blockbusters. Seagal moved into TV a few years back with his reality show Lawman, as well as his fictional cop show, True Justice.

Film: "The Legend of Hercules"; Cast: Kellan Lutz, Scott Adkins, Liam McIntyre, Liam Garrigan, Johnathon Schaech, Roxana McKee, Gaia Weiss, Rade Serbedzija, Kenneth Cranham, Mariah Gale, Luke Newberry; Director: Renny Harlin; Rating: ***
"The Legend of Hercules" is a perfect example of how too many cooks spoil the broth! With four writers credited with the script, one would expect a perfect piece of entertainment. But instead, what you get is a cauldron of insipid, generic and lacklustre entertainment!
The film begins on the outskirts of. »

The Legend of Hercules is a dreadful origin film about the titular hero from Greek myth. Here, the fabled strong-man (played by Kellan Lutz) must overcome great adversity to accept who he is and what he must do to survive so that can become the hero he is destined to be.
Hercules’ birth starts out, indirectly, from the desire of his mother-to-be, Queen Alcmene (Roxanne McKee), who dreams of living in a Greece that knows peace and is not continually driven to war. War so delights her husband King Amphityron (Scott Adkins) that it has become a way of life for the Greeks. The Queen beseeches the goddess Hera and is granted divine assistance. Hercules is born to bring peace to the land.
Needless to say, the King is not too happy that his wife has had a child without him, but he cannot accept that the father is actually »

Review Ron Hogan 14 Jan 2014 - 06:24
I've been trying to think of something nice to say about The Legend of Hercules, but it's kind of difficult to do that when a movie fails on every possible level. Perhaps the best thing I can say about the movie is that it's going to make a great Rifftrax when Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy get their hands on it. The second best thing I can say about it is that it's short, clocking in at only 99 minutes. That means the constant assault of insipidness ends mercifully quickly, unlike the movie's fight scenes.
As the evil king Amphitryon (Scott Adkins) grows more and more mad with power, conquering city-states and waging war in an effort to sate his blood lust, his »
Yup, they’re making another one. And this one, we’re told, is a prequel. I dunno why, but apparently there is a lot about the 2010 movie’s futuristic tournament fighting world left to explore, so instead of going forward, they’re going backward. Hey, whatever works, I guess. The man who will be fronting the latest “Tekken” movie is none other than Kane Kosugi, son of the legendary Sho Kosugi. The younger Kosugi has carved out a very nice career for himself in martial arts films in Japan and abroad. He can currently be seen fighting alongside Scott Adkins in “Ninja: Shadow of a Tear,” a film that has plenty of ninjas, but oddly, not a lot of shadowy tears. According to Kotaku, the prequel will now be called “Tekken: A Man Called X.” When the sequel was announced almost two years ago, the original title was “Tekken: Rise of the Tournament. »
