Starring Elizabeth Perkins, Sean Astin with Timothy Dalton,'Hercules' is the breathtaking epic that brings to life the greatest mythical story of all. Gifted with great physical strength and heroic courage, Hercules is destined for an extraordinary future. But, born to Zeus as the result of an affair with the Princess of Thebes, he is despised by the great God's wife, Hera as the abhorrent evidence of her husband's infidelity. Fearing there is only one way to atone for his birth sins, Hercules agrees to a series of impossible tasks destined to destroy him. From the slashing harpies of the Stymphalian Swamps to the leather-winged Nemean Lion, and the man-eating mares of Lemnos to the perilous crossing of the flaming waves of the River Styx, Hercules must survive terrifying odds to regain his as a god, a hero and as a man. Already a legend on Earth, immortality in the heavens awaits.
