In the epic origin story THE LEGEND OF HERCULES, Kellan Lutz stars as the mythical Greek hero -- the son of Zeus, a half-god, half-man blessed with extraordinary strength. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, 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. Through harrowing battles and gladiator-arena death matches, Hercules embarks on a legendary odyssey to overthrow the King and restore peace to the land.

Hercules has always been a popular subject for movies. So after Greek mythology-themed fantasy movies like "300," "Immortals" and "Clash of the Titans," it's not surprising that Hollywood would dredge him up again.

Unfortunately, they cast the meathead from "Twilight" as Hercules. And the terrible casting is only one of the problems in "The Legend of Hercules" -- it feels like a cheap TV movie version of an actual blockbuster movie, with claustrophobic sets, random eruptions of slow-mo and uber-cheesy dialogue. Even worse, it cribs from the earlier Grecian myth movies while lacking even a shred of their style.

Repelled by her power-hungry husband King Amphitryon (Scott Adkins), Queen Alcmene (Roxanne McKee) makes a deal with the goddess Hera: Zeus will have sex with her, and she will have a son named Hercules who will destroy Amphitryon. Yeah, because Hera was always okay with her husband boinking human women. Amphitryon, suspecting the baby isn't his, names him Alcides.

Two decades later, Alcides/Hercules (Kellan Lutz) is in love with Princess Hebe (Gaia Weiss), but she's betrothed to his wimpy brother Iphicles (Liam Garrigan). They try and fail to run away together, and Amphitryon punishes Alcides/Hercules by sending him off on an undermanned mission.

Of course, the undermanned mission gets slaughtered, except for Hercules and his buddy Captain Sotiris (Liam McIntyre), and they are quickly sold into slavery as gladiators... because yeah, they had LOTS of those in ancient pre-Romanic Egypt. Hercules' superhuman strength allows him to free himself and Sotiris, but he must somehow seize his father's kingdom before his brother weds Hebe... or something like that.

Before I get into the mess that makes this movie so dang terrible, I have to give it credit for one thing; it made me laugh. I do not believe I have ever laughed so hard in an action movie before this film, or for such a random reason. The sword fights, which have the whole "look how powerful we are swinging these weapons around" vibe and sound effects, often hit the floor and just sort of stop and wobble. It's also worth a laugh when you first see the Nemean lion. I mean, just look at the truly awful CG lion. I doubt that you would believe that the budget for this film was $70 million after seeing it.

Unfortunately, that is where the fun really ends. There is no Hercules mythology present in this film at all. In fact, I wonder why the film is even called the Legend of Hercules, considering all the borrowed myths and legends from other sources. Let me give you a few examples; at one point, Hercules brings down two pillars that he was chained to after praying to the Greek god Zeus. A few minutes after this, he summons lightning from his sword to become an electrical whip to use against his enemies. These sounds awfully close to the Biblical Samson legend and the Norse god Thor's lightning ability. In fact, Hercules only rarely (and by rarely, I mean like three times in the entire film) demonstrates his legendary strength. Hercules also apparently is not a mortal enemy of the goddess Hera, despite all mythology saying otherwise. I realize that the director can take some artistic liberties in their film, but to call this the "Legend of Hercules" and then use nothing from the Hercules myths...that's just wrong. In the end, you'll just be left with a bad taste in your mouth if you watch this film with the hopes that it will be a good Hercules film.

Legend of Hercules hit certain marks of what I was looking for before going in to see it.
1. Does it have Action? Yes. And lots of it. The action scenes clearly take heavy inspiration from 300's slow motion effect, so if you like that, the only thing missing here is the blood, as this is a safe PG 13.
2. Does it have a story of some kind that is understandable with interesting characters? Done. Is it great? That depends on what you compare it to. Honestly, the story could use refinement, but this movie is about the action first.
3. Some scenes showing Hercules' trademark strength? Yes. Just watch the final act and a lot of the fights.

If you can look past the simple, familiar plot and just enjoy the action, this movie is worth a look. The 3D effects are outstanding with lots of stuff popping out and a cool sense of depth.

Action Scenes:
Intro Sword Fight and War.
Fight against a (comical Computerized) Lion.
Fight against a small army of archers in a cave.
Fight in a big arena with a pit with rocks and two fighters (Hercules and Spartacus) against some bad guys.
Fight against 6 warriors versus Hercules. Guess who wins?
Fight against some village goons using a pair of stones.
Fight against an army with an electrical sword.
Fight against the main bad guy King to save the princess.

Scenery: Good scenery.
Cinematography: Good.
Acting: Beginner actors, among one or two accomplished actors. Could have been better.
Story: Not brain science; about rescuing a princess and stopping an evil King and brother.
Does it make sense? There are some errors and comical sequences, but it still makes sense most of the time.
3D: Outstanding.
Action: Fun and easy to watch. Best parts of the movie and the reason to see it.
