by at .  Updated at . Comments

We know he could literally beat up all movie contenders this weekend, but does that mean Dwayne Johnson deserves to also beat them in in box office receipts over the coming days?

Let's see what the critics have to say, shall we?

Scroll down for a collection of Hercules reviews from across the Internet and decide if the film is worth your time and money now...

The Rock as Hercules

There's just enough plot to keep the movie lurching forward, and there are plenty of battle scenes to delight connoisseurs of carnage. - Stephen Farber

The mythical Greek strongman gets a refreshingly human spin in Brett Ratner's grandly scaled, solidly entertaining popcorn pic. - Scott Foundas

Idiocy and excess is rarely this much fun - but Brett Ratner's Hercules is just the kind of macho madness that this comic book version of the myth requires when Dwayne Johnson is the chosen one. - Bruce Kirkland

With repeated themes of emotional trauma, running from your demons, and facing the consequences of your actions, Hercules is a deceptively textured and layered action movie. - Tim Martain

Refreshing in that it never takes itself too seriously. Just a fun, ninety-minute action ride. Beautifully shot. - Chris Bumbray

Hercules is a creaky bit of cheap-looking, inconsequential fluff that squanders any potential and contains not a jot of passion, imagination or creativity. So, in summary, it's a Brett Ratner film. - David James
