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.

In the first ten minutes, this movie was a lot better than The Legend of Hercules.

The mythology side of Hercules is pretty much all seen and explained within the first 5 or so minutes and for the rest of the film, Hercules is pretty much just a strong dude fighting along with his friends for money.

There’s nothing new in terms of story but it is action packed, pretty much from the get go, and unlike Legend of Hercules, doesn’t focus on the drama side of things or revolves around a crappy romance.

It has a pretty good cast including of course Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell and John Hurt and some awesome fight scenes.

It was entertaining, just an awesome, mindless action film and would be something I would watch again.
