The latest version of Hercules is thoroughly entertaining with stand out performances from Elizabeth Perkins and Kristian Schmid. The scenery was magnificent and suited the epic nature of this adventure. Director Roger Young really got the most out of his actors, many of whom are highly respected. (Perkins, Dalton, Astin)There is nothing stuffy about Hercules (unlike many other Greek tragedies which have been filmed). The performances are charged with emotion. The stakes are high. The adaptation was accessible and clear, far superior to the last production starring Kevin Sorbo. My only query is why everyone except Leelee Sobieski was in English accent. I really enjoyed it and would like to see the longer version, which will hopefully come out on DVD. It's a shame it was up against Everybody Loves Raymond's finale because Hercules should have reached a wider audience.
