Bartok watches over his estate, a vassal kingdom to a great empire. Protecting the Bartok clan is Commander Raiden and his elite soldiers, who also serve Bartok. Raiden is surprised when Bartok tells him he is to be his heir, and gives him a sword. The empire has become corrupt and the evil minister, Geza Mott, humiliates Bartok by beating him with a stick for failing to provide an adequate bribe, until Bartok retaliates — which is treason against the crown. Bartok is put to trial where he speaks openly of his disdain for what honour has become in the empire. He is sentenced to death and Raiden is ordered to execute his own master. Bartok's estate is divided and the Bartok clan is disbanded. Geza Mott suspects Raiden will demand vengeance, and has his trusted warrior, Ito, watch Raiden to ensure there is no possibility of revenge.

Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) is the leader of a band of mercenaries comprising the spear-wielding prophet Amphiaraus (Ian McShane) of Argos, the knife-throwing thief Autolycus (Rufus Sewell) of Sparta, the feral warrior Tydeus (Aksel Hennie) of Thebes, the Amazon archer Atalanta (Ingrid Bolsø Berdal) of Scythia and his nephew storyteller Iolaus (Reece Ritchie) of Athens. Hercules is said to be the demigod son of Zeus, who completed the legendary Twelve Labors, only to be betrayed by Hera who drove him insane and caused him to murder his wife Megara (Irina Shayk) and their children during a visit to King Eurystheus (Joseph Fiennes). Throughout the film, it is not clearly established that Hercules is truly the son of Zeus, and many are skeptical of the claim as well as of the stories of Hercules' famous Twelve Labors. Despite this, Hercules is frequently seen displaying unusual strength and nigh-unmatched skill in combat. Hercules is frequently haunted by the memory of the deaths of his wife and daughters by his hand, as well as visions of Cerberus.

His partner Ove (Eivind Sander) works at a surveillance company and deactivates security at the victims' homes. Roger's wife, Diana (Synnøve Macody Lund), an art gallery owner, introduces him to Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), an executive who wants to work for Pathfinder, a GPS technologies company, for which Roger is recruiting. Roger becomes jealous of Diana's attraction to Clas. Diana tells Roger that Clas owns a rare Rubens painting. Roger takes Clas to lunch to discuss the job at Pathfinder and after playing squash later, he notices scars on Clas's back. Clas mentions he received them during his [military] service, where he was a member of a special forces unit that specialized in tracking people, a fact which gives Roger pause for thought. Despite his misgivings, Roger meets with Ove to work out details on stealing the painting. Roger manages to steal it from Clas' home but he discovers Diana's cellphone beside Clas' bed. Later, after a seemingly successful meeting with Pathfinder, a still distraught Roger flippantly informs Clas that the company may be looking for someone else to fill the position.
