Dang, is it me, or is Brett Ratner and Dwayne Johnson’s “Hercules” like a million times better looking than that mess starring that musclebound kid from “Twilight”? It’s not just me, right?
Check out your first clip from “Hercules,” which features Dwayne Johnson flexing his muscles (and weapons) and taking on an army of tattooed freaks. Sheesh. I hope the tattooed freaks of “Hercules” have more screentime than the tattoo freak from “47 Ronin.” Remember that movie? That dude showed up for like 5 seconds total, but somehow still managed to get his own poster. What the hell was that about, Universal?
Centuries ago, a tormented Demigod walked the earth: Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus. For this, he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labors and the loss of his family, the dark and world-weary soul turned his back on the gods, finding his only solace in combat. Over the years, he warmed to the company of six similar friends, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and women never questioned where they would go to fight or why or whom, just how much they would be paid – until the King of Thrace hired them to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It was time for the group of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen, when they must train an army to become as ruthless and bloodthirsty as their reputation has become.
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Aksel Hennie, and Reece Ritchie.
