    • The included screenshots are sourced from a 1080p Blu-ray disc. Watch for 4K screenshots at a later date. The Legend of Hercules is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of Lionsgate Films with a 2160p transfer...

    • Both The Legend of Hercules and Conan the Barbarian 4K have received audio upgrades on 4K UHD, with both releases being given extremely effective Dolby Atmos tracks. I gave top marks to the 1080p Blu-ray's...

    • The 4K UHD disc ports over the minimal supplementary material detailed in our The Legend of Hercules 3D Blu-ray review. For the record, the Blu-ray disc included with this package is the combo 3D/2D version....

    • I have a confession to make. I love cheesy movies. The bigger the train wreck, the more fascinating it is to me to pick apart and dissect. Throw in a schlocky filmmaker like Renny Harland and it’s a sure...

    • I find it hard to think of a film that so shamelessly imitates other movies quite like The Legend of Hercules -- where the filmmakers ape the plot of films like Gladiator or Spartacus, with Hercules dropped...
