Hercules can pass for a one time fun ride..It has got some well choreographed fight scenes,funny one liners, good work with the camera, decent performances, good graphics..But the awe factor is totally missing..
The first half is kinda boring.There’s not much happening..Its only towards the end of first half, you get to see some action.And the second half follows with much more activity..more fight scenes..one liners..and feels more engaging..But still there’s nothing in this film to be amazed about.Its like any other regular action flick..But Dwayne has somehow managed to elevate the film to be in between average and great.Thanks to his charismatic screen presence.
Hercules is made on a very shallow script..Brett Ratner is a great director, no offence.But I felt he could have done better with this one.Its mainly about the initial half of the film, when it is a bit dull and boring..Atleast, including few more fight scenes would have made some difference.
Dwayne Johnson as Hercules is a good damn call..As someone rightly said, Dwayne possess one of the most striking screen personas of our time..A born star..He carries the entire film one his strong broad shoulders..And is the only reason, the film is something above an average flick.Regarding the rest of the cast, they have all done well..
So here’s a flick that can be entertaining, regardless of some flaws here and there..And fans of Dwayne Johnson shouldn’t miss this one..
My Rating :6.5/10
