Hercules: Chariots For Hire
What's a nice gal like the Movie Slut doing at a flick like this?
You could chalk it up to indiscriminate taste in movies. But you'd only be half right.
Turns out, MS is a fan of Greek mythology. Alas, in this version Herc's paternity is up for grabs. His father might be the god Zeus. But probably not. Say what?#&#!
Other aspects of the mighty warrior's myth are also tampered with in this based-on-a-graphic-novel film, but a sense of humor has been added for chuckles. (But no laughs out loud. )
As expected, lots of battles ensue and Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) is believable as the debunked demigod and strongest mortal dimwit headed for a sequel.
