Brett Ratner’s Hercules may be big, dumb and predictable but it’s a hell of a fun ride. Given we’ve had several films (one of which was released earlier this year) and a television series to explore the hulking hero’s work, I was surprised to see yet another incarnation hit the big screen so soon. Luckily this version manages to put enough of a twist on the tale to warrant its existence.
This is your perfect lazy Friday night film after a long week and maybe an ale or two. It’s a little bit silly at times but I’m sure if you set your expectations accordingly you’ll be pleasantly surprised. You know what the Rock’s cooking and you know you can’t resist it.
If you see the film and agree or disagree with my review feel free to drop a line below or pop over to our Facebook page and call me out directly WWE style!
