A raucous retelling of the Greek hero's battles
The marquee says it all: Dwayne “The Rock" Johnson as Hercules and Brett “Rush Hour" Ratner directing a film based on a comic book based on the legend of Greek demigod Hercules. The film delivers exactly what this suggests. Former wrestler Johnson is not much of an actor. So it helps that stringy wet hair partially covers his face almost throughout, thereby saving him the effort of having to emote. Ratner therefore gets away with several shots of Johnson’s astounding muscles and form, covered immodestly by a small leather skirt (and the occasional body armour).
