Similar to the captain of the school rugby team Alcides ( Kellan Lutz ) Still does not know what he Heracles and his father Amphitryon (Scott Adkins) And Zeus. He quietly secluded coastal bush with Hebe (Jaya WACC), daughter of the ruler of Crete, innocently hunting with his brother Iphicles (Liam Gerrigan) on the Nemean lion and looks forward to a long and happy life with paradise in the palace. Plans demolish treacherous relatives. Preparing to ascend the throne in the public interest Iphicles wants to marry his beloved brother. Temnooky brunette Amphitryon, suspecting that the blond and blue-eyed, his son Hercules treacherously sends the boy to Egypt, where it is waiting for an ambush.
From this moment on “Hercules” alternately tries skins “300” (and old and new), “Gladiator”, “Spartacus” by Stanley Kubrick , And the film ends in the best traditions of fantasy melodramas for schoolchildren. All these feats of Hercules, born Alcides must commit to the third full moon – or a wife Hebe Iphiclus.
Five-time nominee “Razzie”, directed by Renny Harlin Hercules created postsumerechnoy era (no wonder the main role called Kellan Lutz), who, instead of heroic actions dealt with family problems. His mother, Alcmene (Roxanne McKee), did not like Amphitryon, so nazhila second child with Zeus (here opinion writers of film and the ancient Greeks disagree – the latter considered that Hercules still born earlier). Hebe all the same Greek mythology – the daughter of Zeus and Hera, the last and the divine wife of Heracles – was the death and willful girl who behaves as if women were allowed to vote is not something that married for love.
Of course, it is strange to criticize the “Hercules” for the fact that it distorted the whole story of the son of Zeus, because it is absolutely teenage drama played out heroes legends. Local Hercules – that pumped up guy who usually has ochkarikov classmates, and those laughing at his ignorance of the multiplication tables. But Harlin version Kellan Lutz plays goodie is that not only the rescue of his beloved blonde, but also satisfied the revolution in his native Greece, repeating the feats of Spartacus. However, whose only merit is not copied in the movie Hercules. Even a couple of minutes patched Old Testament strongman Samson.
The main problem of “Hercules” that he clumsily assigns achievements of others, completely ignoring the fact that inherent in the very foundation of the history of this ancient Greek hero. Love Line, invented at feeble school composition, much truer would be played out in the American suburbs – would not have to come up with pathetic and inaccurate costumes, as well as write-pathetic meaningless dialogues. The latter can not abuse the logic worse soldiers looting defeated city. Finally, Hercules without his exploits, lion skins and even the canonical beard looks like ersatz hero, whom he, in fact, is played by Kellan Lutz. But after the “Hercules” Renny Harlin can finally subside quietly: “Razzie” he deserved it, like no other.
