Moving past the obvious, that "the Rock" doesn't look Greek and he looks understandably Samoan, as he is. It seems that this might actually be the "Hercules" film we all had been waiting for. A film that embraces its mythology, taking some events, employing other character traits and not shying away from them or trying to pose as something else. Such as the previous "Hercules" film released in January, that everybody wants to quickly forget about.
