1.0 out of 5 stars Unforgivably bad!, January 20, 2014
This review is from: The Legend of Hercules (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
I just came back from wasting couple of hours of my life. Where do I begin sharing my disgust? First, the script seemed to have been written by couple of second graders. No plots, story line or dialog worth mentioning. Second, it was terribly acted. I don’t think I can recall any movie I have ever seen where every character was just this terrible. Given the material one can understand actor’s inability to portray the character well, but I am still puzzled how not even one of them managed to do their job properly, which leads to… Third, the worst directing job I’ve seen in a very, very long time. If I ever failed at my job so completely, I would try hiding my connection to the project.

And with all of these I would have still talked myself out of writing this review (which I do rarely these days), if it was not for the most mind blowing reasons why I think this movie was completely bad. In big budget blockbusters likes of which this film was trying to be, special effects are the main attraction. But in this case they were are so bad, so dated I can’t help myself but wonder if they actually spend any money making this movie? 15 years ago this could have been acceptable, maybe. But with the technology available today, this was unforgivable. To give you one example: in the beginning of the film the title character and his brother come face to face with a killer lion. And when the lion actually showed up on a screen every single person in the theater laughed. We actually laughed. There was nothing redeeming about this movie and if you are still considering buying the DVD do your bank account a favor and wait until it is available for a $1.00 rental from red box. I promise it will still be a waste of money.
