HERCULES is a fantasy action adventure about the demigod of Greek mythology, who leads an army into battle against a tyrannical warlord as he seeks revenge for the murder of his family.
Scenes of violence include Hercules killing fantastical monsters, and battles in which armies clash with swords, axes, clubs and bows and arrows. The focus of these battle scenes is on fast paced action rather than on dwelling on pain and injury. There are occasional blood spurts when weapons make impacts, and also some bloody images in the aftermath of violent incidents. The historical setting of the action and clear elements of fantasy in the story distance the violence from the real world.
There are occasional comic, bawdy references to 'buxom naked Amazons' and 'exciting bondage', and a character is accused of being more influenced by a 'pair of breasts' than by money when agreeing to a business proposition.
There is one use of strong language ('f**k') and milder bad language including ‘hell’, ‘crap’, 'shit', ‘bastard’.
