OFFICIAL FORUM DISCUSSION 

IT STARS 2005 WORST ACTOR NOMINEE DWAYNE ("THE ROCK") JOHNSON (IMDb LINK)... 

IT's BEING RELEASED BARELY 6 MONTHS AFTER the OTHER (HILARIOUS) 2014 HERCULES MOVIE CAME OUT... 

...IT WAS HELMED by ONE of the 13 PEOPLE WHO "WON" LAST YEAR's WORST DIRECTOR RAZZIE for MOVIE 43 (LINK)...

....BUT IT LOOKS LIKE IT DOESN'T TAKES ITSELF TOO SERIOUSLY, SO IT's DEBATABLE IF THIS ONE's BAD ENOUGH to DESERVE RAZZIE® ATTENTION. 

IF YOU GIZE SAY IT's a CONTENDER, HERE's an IDEA (JUST OFF the TOP of OUR HEAD): HOW ABOUT WE NOMINATE BOTH THIS and the KELLAN LUTZ/WHATTA PUTZ VERSIONS of HERCULES JOINTLY as WORST PICTURE??  

FEEL FREE to DISCUSS at LENGTH BELOW... 

FOR MORE INFO, HERE's the LINK to OUR FORUM INFO PAGE on THIS "INSTANT REMAKE"... 

---and JUST for FUN, HERE's the LINK to CHECK OUT OUR FOTO FUNNY for IT.  

HERE's HOPING THIS ONE's AT LEAST HALF AS FUNNY as THAT EARLIER HERCULES MOVIE, IF SO, IT'LL BE 
a LAFF RIOT!!

But they were not made by the same people, so it wouldn't make as much sense.

Also, you forgot to mention that this film's director is Brett Ratner, who previously directed...

MOVIE 43!

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Although I did not specifically name Rattner, I did mention that he is one of "The RAZZIE® 13" who infamously "Co-won" our 2013 Worst Director award...


Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Worst Supporting Actor: Brendan Fraser/Gimme Shelter and The Nut Job

I think that this should automatically receive a Razzie Nomination for Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel... for Worst Rip-Off of Steve Moore's Good Name

I was astonished at how forgiving the reviews were. The reviews tended to focus on the best elements Brett Ratner could bring to the table from behind the camera, and the idea of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as an ancient Greco-Roman warrior, and all the best things that could come from that, and to offset everything the film can't boast, it must have at least delivered in a basic manner to get a B- in the approval rating. It's a little different at Metacritic, however. There, Ratner's Hercules has 11 average reviews, 5 below C-, and only 4 above C+. Compared to other contenders for the RAZZIES, and especially compared to The Legend of Hercules, Brett Ratner's Hercules doesn't stand out. If there's a proposition in the air to jointly nominate TLoH and Ratner's for Worst Picture, I vote NO. We should only nominate Harlin's and Lutz's The Legend of Hercules for our awards.

I honestly don't see much Razzie Potential with this version of Hercules. It just seems like a one of those typical Dwayne Johnson movies that are fun/bad rather than painfully awful.
If you care to find me, Look to the Western Sky :)

Kellam Lutz's "acting" makes Dwayne Johnson's look like Olivier.

I have to admit, reading that Steve Moore got the usual Hollywood screw-over, and then had his death capitalized on by the very people who screwed him over, really sticks in my craw.

However, this movie itself doesn't appear to be bad enough for consideration, let alone as bad as The Legend Of Hercules was.

The Rock in an interview said : "This is the new movie Gladiator, it will keep you glued to the chair."
Of course, the important thing is to be convinced, Dwayne! 

Possible nominations?
Worst Actor: Dwayne "The Rock"  Johnson    

Worst Supporting ActressIrina Shayk  (She just smiles like those children who smile during the Christmas show looking at the parents sitting in the audience)

Worst ScreenplayRyan Condal  and Evan Spiliotopoulos (although yes, I know, it's based on a graphic novel, the film is hasty in the first part, it 's so slow in development and only the conclusion acquires depth and for an action movie, this discontinuity, these drops of  "pressure" can't possibly be good!) 

Despite some serious flaws in the rhythm,  I have no one else to blame the director Brett Ratner: for example, action scenes are designed with wisdom and "job".
That's why he's safe! In this particular  "case", for me it's enough!
