Centaur Movied: Fucking Centaurs

This is how it must have gone down: “Listen, we don’t have the time and we can’t budget the effects for the Herc-versus-centaur battle scene originally featured in the script, so we’ll be doing this instead.”

How incredibly lame can you get. What a missed opportunity. I rate this move a solid F for fucked up.

    That whole movie was based on the fact that mythical creatures don’t actually exist, and that Hercules (and other parties) are using the belief in the mythical to inspire fear and admiration in gullible people.

    So the original establishing shot for this battle with the centaurs was that of actual centaurs, which turn out to be just a group of regular war lords that pretend to be something they’re not once they come into focus.

    The comment makes perfect sense in the movie, as Hercules takes out the leader of the so-called “centaurs”.

      I am sorry I am just approving this comment now. I thought I had done that back when I first read it.

      Thanks for the clarification on why “Hercules” was that way it was regarding centaurs. That might be a novel conceit to give a new twist to the legend of the hero, but sounds like a surefire way to avoid the need to create CGI of mythical creatures. Yes, I am sure the comment I was complaining about works in the movie given the fact that the idea was to debunk that such myths ever might have existed. It’s a pity they didn’t have the budget to really, finally, do a Hercules movie that showed his labors as the vivid legends that have been passed down to the present day. The myth debunking conceit instead just sounds like a cop out to me.
