'Legend of Hercules' is far fetched and mundane

See also

Nothing stirs the imagination like Greek mythology. For those of you who may not be aware, Hercules is the son of a mortal and the Greek God, Zeus. His strength is his gift. Given the right opportunity, he can bring the house down.

In this movie “Legend of Hercules”, Hercules is played by Kellan Lutz. Hercules is the stepson of the king. Hercules doesn’t know of his genetic background or that his destiny is to overthrow the king and reestablish harmony to his country. Others who want to be next on the throne over take Hercules, the strongest man in the world.

Of course, there is a woman involved, Hebe, Princess of Crete, who has been promised to Hercules’ brother. Hercules wants her for himself. He is sold into slavery (all of this over a forbidden love) and has to fight back. Meanwhile, he has to make a choice to be a hero or build a secluded life with Hebe.

“Legend of Hercules” is a little far-fetched. I would put it among the archives of mundane action-packed tales of Ancient Greece and love sacrifices soon to be on a local TV channel on a Saturday afternoon.
