"The Legend of Hercules" is pretty decent for a B-grade gladiator flick, but that's all it is. It actually doesn't have anything to do with the established mythology of Hercules (or Heracles, as he would be properly known in Greek context), and the movie wouldn't have been any different if the starring role had been filled by some other action hero, new or old.
The movie is fun enough, and has some pretty cool fights (though laden heavily with CGI), so you could do worse than give it a rent. If you want a timeworn story from the annals of Greek myth, however, you should look elsewhere.
This movie was better than I anticipated, but you could notice it was probably filmed on a low budget. The cinematography reminded me of the movie 300, The romance and love intertwined with the action was well blended. The fight scenes entertaining and well staged, but the romance stole the show. Well worth a rent and like always thanks for being in business Game-Fly, Love-Ya! Billy in Samson See-Ya!
