The Legend of Hercules (3D)

Every man has a destiny


The Legend of Hercules (3D)
This unfortunate film has had a rough reception from the critics. Badly historically confused, it meshes Greek mythology into Roman history and comes up a mess. Set in Ancient Greece around 1200 B.C., a queen succumbs to the lust of Zeus to bear a son promised to overthrow the tyrannical rule of the king and restore peace to a land in hardship. But this prince, Hercules, knows nothing of his real identity or his destiny. He desires only one thing: the love of Hebe, Princess of Crete, who has been promised to his own brother. When Hercules learns of his greater purpose, he must choose: to flee with his true love or to fulfill his destiny and become the true hero of his time. So in quick succession we go through Gladiator and Ben-Hur and end up at Spartacus, which proves to be a real killfest. This film is releasing in both 2D and 3D, this is the 3D version.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconYou know it's bad. It's bad. Really, really bad! Badly cast; badly acted; badly staged, shot, and edited. It's bad on pretty much every level a movie can be.

Tomatometer quote iconCheap-looking, poorly acted, and dull, The Legend of Hercules is neither fun enough to qualify as an action movie nor absorbing enough to work on a dramatic level.
