That Hercules movie with the Rock i.e. that one Hercules movie that stands half a chance of actually being decent, does look kind of fun. This is an achievement in itself, because I’ve seen a Brett Ratner film before.
The Rock, obviously, seems hand crafted for the role. Ian McShane is also a very welcome addition down to the fact he’s excellent. Also, given its vaguely historical, John Hurt is there. C-listers fill out the rest of the cast, but so do titanic CG monsters. Many of which The Rock grapples with hand to hand. With nary a Vin Diesel in sight.
This should be good for a laugh.
This latest extended TV spot boasts a bit more spectacle and humour than previous trailers, but truth be told, there’s still something missing, some seal of authenticity that could elevate this beyond mere popcorn fodder.
That said, noting wrong with a good popcorn flick, especially if it involves The Rock giving the People’s Elbow to a gigantic lion…
