Sorry, Twilight's Kellan Lutz, but "Kellan Lutz, leading-man action hero" isn't going to happen anytime soon, especially not when he stars in straight-to-video-quality junk like The Legend of Hercules that somehow opens in 2,000 theaters. In a time when TV shows like Spartacus: Blood and Sand are bringing cinema-level visuals to television, films as cheap-looking as this collection of wannabe Gladiator cliches and paint-by-numbers storytelling are all the more inexcusable.
Looking like a girl in a Michael Bay movie, the bronzer-covered Lutz struggles to convincingly emote while even less believably hacking and slashing his way through a big-screen video game with SNES graphics. All Dwayne Johnson has to do is not sneeze to make this month's more credible Hercules reign supreme in the mythical Greek hero universe. —Matt Barone
