MPOV: The Legend of Hercules

The origin story of the the mythical Greek hero. 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.

I've always enjoyed historical movies especially with Greek gods, don't ask me why. From Perseus to Hercules, these half bloods, or shall I say demi-Gods, seemed fascinating with a more God-adventurous life! Shallow me LOL! Anyway, this version of Hercules seemed a little far-fetched especially since the CGI seemed so unrealistic. Storyline was fine but it felt lacking something... a God-oomph to give it that zest and livelihood I guess. Honestly, it felt a little drab in the end. Thank goodness it was still a little entertaining with all those fancy CGI fighting's although it made me laugh a few times... had to suppress it as no one was laughing o.O
