Hercules movie quotes bring the classic story of the Greek demigod back to the big screen for another feature film. Directed by Brett Ratner, the movie was written by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos. "Hercules" opened in theaters in the United States on July 25, 2014.

In "Hercules," the title character (Dwayne Johnson) appears just after his twelve labors, where he proved himself as a demigod and built up quite a reputation as someone who should not be messed with. Despite really only wanting to be a simple, non-violent husband and father, Hercules is urged to work as a sword-for-hire as he simply is the only one around who has a chance at what the people are facing.

With fierce persistence from Amphiaraus (Ian McShane), Hercules reluctantly agrees to help the King of Thrace (John Hurt) and his daughter in fighting an evil warlord. He is not fighting alone, however, with Autolycus (Rufus Sewell) and Atalanta (Ingrid Bolsø Berdal) right by his side as they go up against enemies who would easily take down mortals, but prove to be quite the match for someone like Hercules.

"Hercules" is just one of several summer blockbusters hitting theaters in 2014 as it opens alongside "Planes: Fire & Rescue," "Sex Tape," "Wish I Was Here, "And So It Goes, "Dawn of Planet of the Apes," "A Long Way Down," "Tammy," "Earth to Echo," "Deliver Us from Evil," "Transformers: Age of Extinction," "Snowpiercer," "Begin Again," "They Came Together," "Think Like a Man Too," "22 Jump Street, "How to Train Your Dragon 2," "Hellion," "The Rover," and The Fault in Our Stars."

    Amphiaraus: "My time…"
    [Hercules stops the javelin]
    Amphiaraus: "Do you mind? I was having a moment!"
    Hercules: "You're welcome."

    Amphiaraus isn't amused when Hercules steps in to stop a javelin coming their way. Hercules, on the other hand, thinks Amphiaraus should be thankful for the act.

    Amphiaraus: "No matter how far you go, man cannot escape his fate. Who are you? Are you a murderer? Are you a mercenary who turns his back on the innocent? We believe in you! We have faith in you! Remember the deeds you have performed, the labors you have overcome! Are you only the legend or are you truth behind the legend? Now, tell me, who are you?"
    Hercules: "I am Hercules!"

    Amphiaraus inspires Hercules to look within himself to find out who he really is. Hercules comes with a legendary reputation but now it's time to show everyone what he's got.

    I Only Want to Be a Husband and a Father

    Video: YouTube

    Amphiaraus: "We all know your legend. Your name is a rallying cry. We all know your legend. You're son of Zeus."
    Hercules: "I only want to be a husband and a father."
    Autolycus: "You cannot deny what you are. The gods will punish you for it."

    Despite his legend, Hercules does not wish to be the man everyone thinks he is. He wants a simple life as a husband and father. Is that too much to ask?
