I love all things gods and demi-gods and mythical creatures, but I'm not sure about Hercules with The Rock as Hercules. I get that he's supposed to be older and that it's after the time of when Disney's Hercules took place... but... :) It does look good though.

Do you think it will be a flop?

In my opinion ALL Hercules type movies are flops. I have yet to see one that is not cheesy.

Hmmm... that's a bold statement. What do you consider to be "Hercules type" movies? Plus if it's not your thing then you're not going to like the movies.

If you're referring to just Hercules movies, then yeah, most of them aren't blockbusters. (Though I really love Disney's Hercules myself.)

If you're referring to Greek Mythology movies in general — that they are  all flops and cheesy could not be farther from the truth. I'm guessing you haven't seen 300 or, I don't know, The Hunger Games. 

Like I said, bold statement. If you could elaborate, that would be great!
