Hercules. Child of the king of the gods. A symbol for strength and accomplishment.

Why did they hire Kellan Lutz to play him again?

Ok, so NO ONE making this film had any pretensions that they were making high art, to be sure (or even low art, really). Just watching the trailer says it all. But is it the kind of B-movie that’s fun regardless of all the cheese? Is there a reason to see it other than manly bo-hunks (if that’s your thing)?

Leave it up to Chris, Ashley, Elliot and JC to make the call. Check out what our Unusual Suspects have to say about “The Legend of Hercules”.

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
