What it's about:

The origin story of the mythical Greek hero.

Betrayed by the King, who is his stepfather, 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. Through harrowing battles and gladiator arena death matches, Hercules embarks on a legendary odyssey to overthrow the King and restore peace to the land.

The film opens on a huge battle in the Greek city of Argos, but it often ends up feeling like the director bought it cheap at the high street namesake.

Every man has a destiny.
