Brief Synopsis: "Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and woman never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become."

Sober Film Chick Mary Dieng60 - Hercules in many ways feels like The Scorpion King. We once again see the Rock don a wig (this time made of the hair from a Yak’s genitals) playing a reluctant hero in ancient times. So viewers who enjoyed The Scorpion King will likely enjoy Hercules.
