Movie Review: The Legend of Hercules

This weekend I saw “The Legend of Hercules” Directed by Renny Harlin. Starting off I must say don’t expect the movie to be like some of the Hercules myths. There are two sides to the story.

One way of seeing the movie is a love story where Hercules struggles to get back to his love. But an alternative is to see it as an action movie where Hercules uses his godly strength to get home and make everything better.

Overall I think this is a great movie for both men and women to enjoy. I found it to be more of a love story than a tale of Hercules and his great feats of strength. The entire movie I wanted him to go crazy like the Hulk and eventually I got what I wanted.

One thing I wish they incorporated into the movie was more blood and gore; it just seemed like they were keeping it too child friendly. I think they should have made the movie to be less like a love story and more like an action movie. Overall, I think it’s a great movie that gives a fresh take to an old story and would recommend seeing it, especially in 3D.
