Before Hercules was a legend, he was a man. A man that traveled around and murdered the sh*t out of giant animals.
This time, The Rock stars as the hulking demigod with distracting white teeth while Brett Ratner directs the amount of baby oil that should be rubbed into his muscles. This story centers on the depressing period in Hercules‘s life following his completion of the Twelve Labors where he wandered around Greece working as a mercenary-for-hire. It reminds me of that time I worked in a deli straight out of college. Yes, not quite the same as slaughtering The Cerberus but YOU try slicing all those onions.
