legend_of_herculesReviews for this film from our members:

  • [New – 5/15/14] | Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
  • Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
    • Excerpt: in what should be the film’s saving grace, the plentiful fight scenes are somewhat fun and have character; it just happens to be the character of Zack Snyder’s “300.”
  • Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: I wouldn’t say that Harlin makes a triumphant return to filmmaking with “The Legend of Hercules,” but I can’t say I didn’t enjoy the movie to a certain degree. Probably not enough to give it a recommended positive rating, but I didn’t feel like I wasted an evening watching it.
  • Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: http://www.reelingreviews.com/thelegendofhercules.htm
  • Kenji Fujishima @ Slant Magazine
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Tepid and tedious with acting that’s so ludicrous, it’s laughable.
  • Travis Hopson @ Punch Drunk Critics
    • Excerpt: The first train wreck of 2014 is a labor of incompetence not even Hercules’ strength can overcome.
  • Frank Ochieng @ Focus of New York Magazine
    • Excerpt: If anything, this particular Hercules stronghold barely musters up the interest to flash a bite-size bicep.
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: Coherent and competently directed, Renny Harlin’s The Legend of Hercules is somewhat better than its shining 3% score on the Tomatometer might indicate.
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Played with an earnestness that’s positively deadly, this unholy mash-up of ‘300’ and ‘Galadiator’…seems to drag on for an eternity.
  • Phil Villarreal @ COED.com
    • Excerpt: And sadder still are the movie’s audiences, like the three unfortunate people, most likely not paid to be there like me, who were stuck with me in the theater. The strength they showed by managing to sit through this thing puts that of Herc to shame.
