Storyline

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 behind one of the greatest myths is revealed in this action-packed epic - a tale of love, sacrifice and the strength of the human spirit. Written by Millennium Entertainment

Trivia

Scott Adkins admitted that his younger King Amphitryon look was in part an homage to Gerard Butler's iconic look as King Leonidas in 300 (2006). The major difference was that Adkins wore armor for most of the film while Butler did not.

A scene was added early in the film where Adkins appears wearing just a loincloth, to more closely appropriately the 300 look. His fighting style was also similarly ruthless and offensive like Butler's in 300. These similarities did not go unnoticed by film critics and audiences and many remarked on the similarities between Adkins and Butler in look, character and even performance. See more »

Unoriginal awful film. Don't see it!!!
11 January 2014 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

The Legend of Hercules spoiler free review

This movie is HORRIBLE. Where do i start. The acting is just laughable and bad. Kellan Lutz is bad as Hercules (Hopefully Dwayne Johnson will do better in the next Hercules movie). Every line is said horribly. Did i mention the dialogue is BAD.

The script is horrible. It has nothing to do with the original mythology. It tries to be like 300 and Gladiator but fails horribly. The romance is so cheesy with the worst romance dialogue i have ever heard.

Are the action scenes good?....No....Far from good. It always uses slow motion just like 300 (which was used better) but it was obnoxious and gets old and annoying.

The visual effects and green screen is horrible and this movie has a budget of over 70 million dollars!!! What?! Movies with lower budgets look more convincing then this.

Overall rating 1/10 One of the worst movies i have seen all year and we're still in January!!! Hopefully the Brett Ratner version is better and obviously it will be. You can't get lower than this.
