The film follows the kind of visual feast reminiscent of the movie 300.  Kellan Lutz, in the title role, comes with both the looks and charisma that gives a depth to his character.  However, the fight and battle scenes, steal the show.  Yes, there is enough testosterone eye candy to all those who love that but it also does well to create the mythological essence of Hercules.
