Caught the trailer for this while watching television a few days ago and felt that it was right up the alley of our readers who find these kind of heroic action films of interest. Today “The Legend Of Hercules” opens in theaters near you. It is directed by Renny Harlin and co-written with Daniel Giat, Giulio Steve and Sean Hood.

I’ll admit that I am on the fence for this one and might wait until Netflix to enjoy it. Of course the recently released “Thor The Dark World” is still replaying in my head so I might want that other-worldly action need sated. For this film I have linked some portrayals of Hercules that fans of the comics and adventure medium would rally behind. I figured a couple of seasons of “Hercules The Legendary Journeys” and “Hercules Prince Of Power” would be solid recommendations to investigate. What are your thoughts about this film? Will you see it?
