Hercules

Before he was a legend, he was a man.


Hercules
This take on the legend of Greek hero Hercules is based on a comic book and is thus more imagination than history. We follow Hercules as he leads a band of mercenaries to help end a bloody civil war in the land of Thrace and return the rightful king to his throne. A tormented soul from birth, Hercules has the strength of a god but feels the suffering of a human. Expect plenty of CGI special effects, action and violence. This film is releasing in 2D, 3D and 3D IMAX, this is the 2D version.

98 minutes.
No persons under 13 (Violence).
Action, Adventure.
