LOS ANGELES: You'll have to say one thing for Brett Ratner's production of "Hercules": This movie has a sense of proportion.The film begins by recounting the legend of Hercules, with snippets of his famous 12 labors. Johnson's Hercules (as envisioned by comic book author Steve Moore) is a flawed hero.You can bet it won't be too long before Hercules rediscovers a noble purpose.On the positive side, the sets (by production designer Jean-Vincent Puzos, who also designed one of Ratner's favorite movies, "Amour") are impressive, and the crowd scenes, even if enhanced by CGI, stir happy memories of films like "Spartacus" and "Ben-Hur".The classy cast also elevates the picture.
