Hercules Review- The Hero Stands Tall

 
Hercules Review- The Hero Stands Tall

Claps For- Director Bratt Ratner, who after the Rush Hour series, gives us yet another entertaining action blockbuster.


Slaps For- The jarring background score, which sounds as if its lifted straight from the Lord of the Rings series.


Popcorn Refill- Virtually none! But if you have to, get it done in the first half, because in the second half, the movie moves at a frenetic pace.


Story- Without giving too many spoilers, its almost impossible to narrate the story. Let's just put it this way, Hercules needs to complete the 12 labor tasks bestowed upon him, and this takes him from one Greek mythology character to another. Hercules, however, is also battling his personal demons.


Acting- Dwayne Johnson as Hercules is definitely believable. He still has problems emoting, but this movie proves that he has grown leaps and bounds as an actor. Iain McShane's comic timing is impeccable. Aksel Heenie steals the show here, though. He has done a tremendous job as Tydus. Russian beauty Irina Shayk also makes her Hollywood debut and her role doesn't require her to do much acting, but she certainly adds to the glamour quotient.


Direction- It takes a rare talent, and a rare director to take a centuries old story, and yet make it look contemporarily interesting. But that is exactly what Brett Ratner achieves here. Throughout the narrative, the characters, despite their credentials, look believable and relatable. The story has a few twists and turns, that will certainly surprise you.


Combo on Offer- A good story is infused with some jaw dropping action sequences. Worth your money, for sure! This is the second Hercules movie to come out this year after the Kellan Lutz-starrer 'The Legend of Hercules'. With comparisons inevitable, it is safe to say that the Dwayne Johnson starrer comes up trumps.


Verdict- Hercules 3D is a rare film and that's why, we are all Claps for this one. It's an experience unto itself. Watch it to get truly amazed!
