Movie Review: Hercules

Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) playing Hercules is something I was doubting. I was expecting too much muscle and bad special effects and very weird legends. But and it’s a big BUT, the movie is really GOOD!!

The normal story of Hercules, but this time it’s a bit different. There is no magic or creatures. There is only Hercules who is strong and his comrades who helped build his legend to scare their enemies. Then Lord Cotys (John Hurt) called for his help to defeat his opponent.

The movie is super fun! And the special effects were really good! You can tell they spent some money on it! There are a lot of funny scenes. I love witty warriors remarks.

What I enjoyed the most was Hercules’s nephew Iolaus (Reece Ritchie) who was the storyteller of the group and who exaggerated all of Hercules’s stories to build his legend. It was like ancient PR and marketing hahahaha. It was very interesting to watch. I would love to be a PR person at that time. Everything then is so new hehehehe now it’s a bit more complicated. (I work in PR btw :p)

Hercules’s team were awesome too! My favorite were the seer Amphiaraus (Ian McShane) and Autolycus (Rufus Sewell). At first Dwayne’s appearance was a bit odd, but then he really played it well.

The only bad thing was the Qatar Cinema censoring! They cut here and there, it was annoying, but for a movie that talks about Gods and demigods, it wasn’t that bad! However, annoying as always!

It’s a really fun movie and I recommend it. We’re moving into the boring season, before the good movies come in November!

And remember, "You can write your own Legend."

Finale note, there was another Hercules movie this year. I saw it and it was nice, but not as good as this one. The special effects were a bit terrible. to check that one, click here
