Blog: Hercules – A Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Okay this is a surprise. Not only was Brett Ratner’s latest film not terrible, it’s actually really quite good. In large part that goes to the performances of Dwayne The Rock Johnson and a support cast which includes Ian McShane, John Hurt, Peter Mullan and Rufus Sewell, all on top form obviously having a hoot. But actually in part it goes to ratner as well – directing action that is watchable, exciting and edited in such a way you can completely follow what’s happening. An interesting story, some great set pieces and eye candy for both sexes makes this a seriously entertaining film. No really.
Best Bit: Ian McShane is bonkers
