REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Don't waste your weekend watch this movie.    Readers  1 of 5 [Rate It]

“..this painfully feeble version of the strongman story fails on every level, from Lutz's wooden acting to the styrofoam special effects..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
1.5 of 5

“..is truly a lazy film..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]
1 of 4

“..is bumbling tripe, the rooting interest it works up in the viewer accurately equating to the makers' interest in staying true to the classic mythology upon which the story based. There have been boxes of hair smarter than this movie..”
by Dustin Putman [DustinPutman.com]

“..Harlin, who has fallen so far off the grid he's on the WWE's shortlist of go-to directors, gives the film an ugly, blanched look like a poor man's 300..”
by Travis Hopson [Examiner.com]
1.5 of 4

“..a parade of carnage without blood, romance without heat, stilted dialogue and male cleavage, at its best it is still vexing as all get out even to those with a high tolerance for the Cinema of the Gods..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
