Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.
Not screened in advance for critics.
General Sitacles, perhaps you would care to inspect the armour of Hercules?
Sitacles: Leather armour? We will be skewered like pigs.
Iolaus: Linothorax. Hewn from the skin of the Erymanthean boar. It's indestructible.
Man in crowd: Wait. If it's indestructible, how did Hercules ...
The movie features numerous characters from mythology and legend, using the Greek names. Except for the title character who is referred to by his Roman name Hercules rather than Heracles. Nearly all movies do this because his Roman name is much more recognizable in pop culture and is a sensible marketing choice. It can be considered a translation of what the characters were really saying.
When the credits roll, there is a 3d animation sequence going over Hercules' labors against the beasts which shows how his companions helped him to slay them.
