The Silver Bullet ~ The Legend of Hercules

hercules_the_legend_begins

Synopsis: Betrayed by his stepfather and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom.

Release Date: January 10, 2014

Thoughts: Oh lord have mercy does this look awful.  Attempting to evoke memories of Gladiator and 300, The Legend of Hercules arrives too little too late and this laughably heinous trailer doesn’t do anything to help its cause.  Lead dodo Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2) is hardly a bankable name and I’m left wondering why this is even being released theatrically at all when it may have done decent business streaming right to Netflix or showing up in your local Redbox.  Worst of all…it’s another surefire stinker from once reliable director Renny Harlin (Devil’s Pass)…I’d feel sorry for Harlin if he didn’t continue to take such also-ran dreck like this.
