Hercules was a weird one for me because going into this movie I was expecting the typical demigod movie. However the truth is, this movie doesn’t give you that. I don’t want to give too much away because this movie is worth seeing because there is an unexpected twist.
The other thing that is to note, that this movie very slightly challenges the myths of the gods. It challenges whether everyone has the ability to become a god as we see them? You saw Hercules as someone who was physically strong as the mythology says but he was mentally flawed and that meant that he wasn’t the completely physically dominate god that we see him as.
The acting was pretty good, I won’t say it was the best performance by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, however he did do well it was another style for him in some respects. He was still playing the physical action hero but there was some scenes where he had to add mystery and emotional distress.
Overall I would give this movie 7/10 and it is one of the better movies out at the moment that I have seen. However saying that now could be misplaced as I haven’t seen the latest Planet of the Apes or Guardians of the Galaxy.
