Hercules (2014)

Film details

Synopsis

Action adventure. The mercenary and supposed demi-god Hercules and his loyal crew of warriors are offered Hercules' weight in gold by the King of Thrace if they help him defeat the ruthless Rheseus who is coming to take his kingdom. Yet not all is as it seems, because Hercules and his friends do not really believe he has any special powers, or is even half god; they simply find it useful to have their opponents think this is the case. Neither has their regal paymaster been completely honest with Hercules about the nature of the mission. During the adventure, Hercules is urged to believe that he really is the son of Zeus, regardless of whether he really is.
