  •  Times of India -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-6
Brett Ratner has put much effort into removing Dwayne Johnson's Hercules from the lofty pedestals of immortality and infallibility and placing him on decidedly mortal ground. Sure, Hercules' biceps can rival a truck tyre in girth. But this mythological marauder now also feels pain

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-5
Die-hard fans of Gladiator and 300 would do well to stay away from director Brett Ratner's Hercules, a trashy swords-and-sandals saga based on the brawny titular hero of Greek mythology. Ratner possesses neither Ridley Scott's refined storytelling skills, nor Zack Snyder's sharp

  •  Indian Express -Shalini Langer Rating-4

  •  Deccan Herald -Ashwin Haldipur Rating-6
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (half-black and half-Samaon) is the film’s trump card and plays the lead role with gusto. Just as Schwarzenegger was the perfect fit for Conan the Barbarian (1982), “The Rock” makes you forget if Hercules had to necessarily be a Caucasian!

  •  Hindustan Times -Jyoti Sharma Bawa Rating-5
Directed by the famously average Brett Ratner, this film is the happy American popcorn cruncher in which we get to see some awesome action, some decent wisecracks, a superhero-ish lead actor with rippling muscles, and hardly any story. What does raise the film a few notches and make
