(AP Photo/Paramount Pictures, Kerry Brown)LOS ANGELES (AP) — You'll have to say one thing for Brett Ratner's production of "Hercules": This movie has a sense of proportion. Running just over 90 minutes, the movie is often clunky, but at least it's fast and unpretentious. And its likable star, Dwayne Johnson, manages to murder legions without ever seeming sadistic. Less violent than "300," less compelling than "Gladiator," this new addition to the sword-and-sandals genre seems likely to please the fanboy audience and stir up some impressive box-office numbers.
