    Hercules (2014) REVIEW

    I enjoyed this, so sue me. Easily the best Hercules movie I've seen out of hollywood.

    Plot: go read wikipedia

    Pros:

    -I'm not really a Dwayne Johnson fan, but I thought his portrayal of Hercules was pretty decent. He had more than one epic moment, in particular "I AM HERCULES!"
    -Hercules' merry band are pretty awesome - all who are straight out of greek mythology I think, including a badass Amazon warrior chick which was my favourite
    -It's not completely action-packed, but the battle scenes are good though (for a PG-13 rating)
    -The story is also interesting.. it's more about Hercules the man, not Hercules the legend.. the legend is portrayed as mostly a myth, although you do get to see scenes of his 12 labours (like in the trailer).. what you do get to see though, is his legendary strength
    -John Hurt, always a solid actor, playing the
    Spoiler...
    villain


    -Good production, costumes and locations

    Cons:

    -I wouldn't say the PG-13 necessarily hurt the film but it would have made the battle scenes better. Not like 300 but a little bit of gore would have been nice.
    -Musical score was serviceable, nothing I can remember though
    -Would like to have seen more of the Amazon warrior chick

    Overall: Good movie 7/10 Bring on a sequel.

    I liked it. Dug the more "realistic" approach towards the character. 7/10
