Wasn’t What I was Expecting…It Was Better!!!
Now let’s me start by saying that I am one of the Rock’s biggest fans. I will see anything he is in, good or bad. When I saw the commercials and previews for this I though “Whoa, an epic tale of Hercules and his trials featuring the Rock in all his glory…Heck YES!!!”
Was that what this was…nope! I was so confused when everything I had seen in the previews happened in the first 5 minutes and I began to worry. “Oh no, what is going on? I am not prepared.” But that thought did not last long.
Hercules was a fantastic movie with brilliant jokes, excellent SFX, and a great ensemble cast that worked well together and were pretty well developed, despite the short time of the movie. I loved the fight scenes and battles. I was really surprised by some of the new ways they fought enemies and the teamwork that was used.
This was a great retelling on an old story that gave a satisfying end that left room for a possible sequel. The 3D was amazeballs and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I will definitely see this again.
