Dwayne Johnson ...Hercules (sexy)
Ian McShane ...Amphiaraus (funny)
John Hurt ...Lord Cotys (mean)
Rufus Sewell ...Autolycus (sexy)
Aksel Hennie ... Tydeus (crazy)
Ingrid Bolsø Berdal ... Atalanta (sexy)
Reece Ritchie ...Iolaus (sexy)
Joseph Fiennes ...King Eurystheus (sexy)
Tobias Santelmann ... Rhesus (sexy)

Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.

All in all an entertaining movie. It wasn't the story I thought I would see. When we meet Hercules he has already completed his labors and is now part of a mercenary band bad asses who take care of leaders problems for gold. There is a cool twist to the legend of how Hercules was able to complete the labors. There was a betrayal I didn't see coming and then some major ass kicking and revenge. There was also a little bit of humor.

Some parts seem to drag a bit before you get to the good stuff, but that's okay because...have you seen the cast?! Holy three headed dogs there was some sexy man candy running all over the place. Yeah, there are two sexy women too. You know those cool scenes in the trailer of Hercules slaying all the monsters? Yeah, that is just a quick flashback montage that plays at the beginning of the movie...seriously.

yes, the amazon warrior woman wore that...sigh...she must have abs of steel since she doesn't need protective armor like the men.
You can wait for the DVD and not miss much, but at the end when he is chained up and yells "MY NAME IS HERCULES!!!" it is quite a chilling moment on the big screen. If you want to see an action movie (assuming you've already seen Guardians of the Galaxy) this is a better option than Lucy. And did I mention abs, biceps and quadriceps, Oh my!?

3 3/4 "you stole my moment" Sheep
