Film Review - The Legend of Hercules

HERCULES Kellan Lutz

There has been no shortage of movies detailing the exploits of the legendary figure Hercules throughout cinema history. The character was a fixture of matinee distractions in the 1950s and ‘60s, eventually finding renewed popularity with a 1997 Disney Animation production and cult television series starring Kevin Sorbo. Apparently, 2014 has been designated the Year of Hercules, with two pictures hitting screens hoping to reignite interest in the powerful hero. The first out of the gate is “The Legend of Hercules,” director Renny Harlin’s attempt to transform the figure of might into a clichéd, slo-mo stabbing machine, siphoning tricks and imagery from seemingly every popular adventure film since 2000. Painfully derivative and miscast up the wazoo, this effort to return mythical majesty to the multiplex triggers more yawns than cheers. Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
