The Legend of Hercules rating: red light

The Legend of Hercules red light

Lunkhead Kellan Lutz is the demigod’s density in Renny Harlin’s 300-lite, MST3K-ready retelling of the classical legend. Think Jesus with muscles, by the power of Greyskull.
I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

    No Bruce Campbell? Then it can’t possibly be worth watching. :)

    YOU HIT THE HAMMER ON THE NAIL!
    MST3K, THAT WAS THE FIRST THING I THOUGHT OF.
    WHAT I PEICE OF CRAP ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES I EVER SEEN.
    AT LEAST MST3K MOVIES HAVE HUMMOR.
    TO BAD THEY ARE NOT DOING THAT SHOW ANYMORE CAUSE THATS THE ONLY THING THAT COULD MAKE IT ENTERTAINING, IF AT ALL.

    All the beefcake is nice to watch but other than that, how could they screw up such a great story? Cinematography is great at points, but the casting and the acting is dull. It LOOKED like 300 but had nothing of its story telling and top rate acting.
