Adventure . Action

Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. 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, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and woman never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch 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 blood thirsty as their reputation has become.

  • Sherilyn Connelly

    Johnson is genuinely talented. He's often the best thing in bad movies, and Ratner's Hercules is, at the very least, pretty good.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    The mythically powerful demigod is back on the big screen in the simply titled Hercules and the results are canny, fast-paced, and, for what the film attempts to accomplish, enjoyable.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Farber

    It may sound like a backhanded compliment to praise this sometimes cheesy movie for never taking itself too seriously, but in a summer of bloated spectacles, this modesty should not be underestimated.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    It’s a grandly staged, solidly entertaining, old-fashioned adventure movie that does something no other Hercules movie has quite done before: it cuts the mythical son of Zeus down to human size (or as human as you can get while still being played by Dwayne Johnson).

    Variety Full Review
  • William Goss

    If anything gets lost in the mayhem, it’s Johnson’s reliably charming personality.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Unsurprisingly, Johnson makes for a perfect movie-star Hercules, and the film gets a lot of mileage by playing his charismatic-but-modest take on the character off of the strong, predominantly British cast.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    There's a welcome lack of pretension to the proceedings. Stalwarts like Hurt and Ian McShane are on hand to class up the joint — everyone's got a British accent except for Johnson — while the predictable story bludgeons its way towards an inevitable conclusion.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Brett Ratner remains a director of no great distinction, but here, he proves himself an adept orchestrator of battle scenes, clearly presenting the forces on both sides, and using clear, coherent editing and dynamic compositions.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Hercules has no right to be as entertaining as it is.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Fast-paced, funny, and packed with – to indulge in a bit of ad-speak — eye-popping action.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Sure, the film is crude, calorific and full of groanworthy half-jokes, but it holds together. It stacks up as an oafish pleasure for an undemanding summer – a rewriting of myths in scrawled crayon, with a nonchalant quality that makes its judiciously brief running time fly by.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    With Hercules, Brett Ratner and Dwayne Johnson are out to entertain you — no more, no less. And that is just what they do.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    There are some rousing battle scenes, preceded by stirring addresses on the subject of going to Elysium – all cheekily borrowed from Ridley Scott's "Gladiator."

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Jamie Graham

    By the beard of Zeus! Brett Ratner delivers fast, fun thrills to score a sound victory over Renny Harlin’s laborious The Legend Of Hercules.

    Total Film Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Director Brett Ratner has always been associated with spectacle but, even for him, this represents a misstep because the "wow!" factor is muted.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    As the plot clogs up with foreseeable reversals, wisecrack duties go to Mr. McShane, whose oracular character keeps wrongly predicting his own death. Like Hercules, the movie is plagued by a split identity: It’s half-slog, half-Mel Brooks.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jeff Labrecque

    When Johnson is wearing the head of the slayed Nemean lion in battle, walloping enemies with his tree-trunk sized club, and heaving charging horses to the ground with remarkable ease, he's in his Rock comfort zone. But as a tortured hero hampered by self-doubt, Johnson labors.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Strap on your swordbelt, buckle your sandals and oil up your rippling six-pack, because here comes yet another interminable, CGI-drenched mythic mish-mash with far more money than brain cells.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Director Brett Ratner could boast solid source material in the five-issue Radical Comics series Hercules: The Thracian Wars by the late Steve Moore. They had a shot at something here, and they blew it.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    For all the fun these folks could have had with Hercules maintaining the supernatural assistance facade, or denying it as his handlers gild his lily testifying that it’s true, the movie is content to just go through the motions.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • John DeFore

    This outing does not suffer the epic badness one associates with films that aren’t screened early for critics, and in fact it offers moments of actual entertainment. It simply fails to exploit its assets: an amusing, revisionist take on the mythological strongman, and the charisma of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    It's mythmaking for dummies, a Hercules with no poetry, only incompetent brute strength.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    Watching Hercules, you can feel your intelligence being insulted in almost every frame. Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    It's a supernatural epic that never feels quite colossal or consequential enough, as well as an utter waste of Dwayne Johnson‘s unique dopey-flirty charm.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Rob Humanick

    The film fluctuates haphazardly between semi-serious reverence and tongue-in-cheek camp, with no shortage of opportunities for the inevitable Rifftrax accompaniment.
