New York police officer Ralph Sarchie investigates a series of crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest, schooled in the rites of exorcism, to combat the possessions that are terrorizing their city.
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.

-So Hercules stars Dwayne Johnson as Hercules and follows the character through a war. I can't really say much else, but it's mainly about the war and him becoming a hero inside and things.
-As a film goes is was good, but not that good. The story wasn't bad as far as cliché stories go. It did take a look at Hercules as a man and even went as far as to say it doesn't matter if he was half-god or not, it just mattered who he was. I liked that.
-The acting was okay. The Rock wasn't great, but he looked like he really cared about the roll and he did his best. Everybody else was forgettable.
-The tone and pace were fine. The film is predictable, and has a lot of genericness. There were a few moments that were surprising, but at one point, one of the friends actually leaves after the grand stick-with-me speech. I was like "Cool, I hope he stays gone, because that would be so cliché!" Aaaaand he came back.
-The effects has some eh moments and some cool moments.
-The music was cheesy. Not bad, but not fitting.
-It's PG-13 and has violence, some language, which surprised me, and some brief partial nudity. Nothing is too bad.
-As a whole, it's pretty generic, but entertaining. I would not give it more than a 6.5/10 though. I will say it's worth watching on Netflix/Redbox though!
