Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.
10 Years after a disease that spread around the globe, Apes who have survived the disease go head-to-head with a group of human survivors and a traitor who is hell bent on destroying humans and apes, triggering the unbalanced war for peace.
Barney augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables co-founder and notorious arms trader who is hell bent on wiping out Barney and every single one of his associates.
The origin story of the the mythical Greek hero. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom.
Fourteen hundred years BCE, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labours and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and women never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.

In Greek mythology, the god Zeus is the father of a child named Heracles, not Hercules. Hercules is the Roman name and the divine father is called Jupiter. The film producers probably used the name Hercules because it is better known that Heracles. See more »

Being a fan of Dwayne Johnson, my expectations for this movie were all high... and I admire the Rock for what he has done for this role as I follow him in twitter.. but the output would have been better if there was a better direction.. something was missing when I was watching the movie. and that thing is undoubtedly... the "Mythical" things.. no magic and no fantasy creatures in this movie... i was so much disappointed by that. I don't know why Dwayne went through all the diet and exercise for this average movie. If u are a fan of the rock, go and watch it.. but only once i tell u. The comedy in the film was good... Overall, I think its one time watch..
