Hercules (Action 2014)

This movie wasn't really good, but that's a known fact just by looking at the poster. It was yet another spin on another mythological character, but I don't think it was meant to be taken seriously. Movies like Troy are supposed to be taken seriously, but films like this one and Wrath of the Titans are totally not; there's a distinctive difference.

This film didn't really try to be better than any other movie in the same genre, so it makes you wonder what its purpose was. Money? Doubtful. Fame? No. Who knows how Hollywood picks their candidates for the year, but I wouldn't have taken a second look at this script. You get some action, some talking, more action, more CG, and then a bland ending. No interesting characters, no fun banter in the dialog, nothing. So it's definitely not worth a rent or a second look.
