Tuesday, July 22, 2014
BIG-BUDGET flick Hercules, starring wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson leads the new movies releases at Gaisano Mall Cinemas this week.
Four sci-fi movies -- Under The Skin, Survivor, Alien Abduction and The Signal -- are also opening this week.
Fourteen hundred years BCE, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life.
After 12 arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death.
These men and women never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time.
It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.
