Two big films are out this weekend, which one is worth your time and money? First, we have “Hercules” starring Dwayne Johnson based on the graphic novel by Steve Moore. From director Brett Ratner, is this “Hercules” much better than “The Legend of Hercules” starring Kellan Lutz from director Renny Harlin?
We also have “Lucy” starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman. This one’s from director Luc Besson who gave us memorable female characters in “La Femme Nikita,” “The Professional,” and “The Fifth Element.” Is “Lucy” worthy of Besson’s booty-kicking heroines? Find out in my movie review below:
Official “Hercules” synopsis
Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures' film HERCULES, starring Dwayne Johnson, bows on July 25th. Based on Radical Comics' Hercules by Steve Moore, this ensemble-action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth, HERCULES. The epic action film also stars Golden Globe Winner Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan and Academy Award (R)-nominee John Hurt. (C) Paramount
Official “Lucy synopsis”
From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.
