Keep the costume designer and the photographer, fire all others, including the director.
Poor - no, I take it back - awful script and dialogues and terrible, terrible directing. There is no real coherence from one scene to the next, no one takes advantage of the actors' strong points, long scenes to fill the time in order to give an excuse for a movie.
This could have been so much more.
CG were not needed really; we could have used our imagination, with a bit of air acting, and use the money to hire a better director.
And the story - oh, the story - what a mess... It really peaks in the end where, disposing of the whole of the point, the heroes mess up their mission, utterly fail, leaving the world to its doom and walk away all smiles in search for another adventure and... warmer climates.
Really, now, whoever gave high marks to this film must either be a close friend of someone in the cast or crew or an utter nutter about anything sword-yielding, magic-casting or horse-riding.
And... "Hercules" must have been stoned up to his eyeballs.
