i could definately wear my dvd player out watching this again and again. i regret not that i didn't take the chance to catch it at the movies. the storyline is simple to follow the character have enough back story to create empathy but still keep your focus on the present action. the actoring was great, even without sound or subtitles you could read so much of the story in the facial expressions of the actor and even their body language. it had enough of mythology to help take a time and place from the history books but the story was still original and action packed nough to have you yelling at the screen in for your favourite characters.
i think this movie was one of the best of it's genre i've seen. the only thing i can fault about the movie is that it was a little confusing for those people who actually know the myths as they used some historical characters but the story lines of them were different. but really to someone who didn't know a thing about greek mythology it was an easy story line to follow and the fight scene and actor selection for the characters were spot on
a lot of negative feedback for this movie, but with no reasoning. imo this was a great flick, good story with a lot of depth and good representation of mythology, stunning visuals and some really great fight scenes (other movies could learn a thing or two from the choreography and time mapping). it was better than most films in the genre, it does fall short in the explanation of the mythology - i can understand how someone with no previous knowledge of greek myth. will walk out of this movie thinking it was stupid, but for someone who understands the greek definition of gods, titans and mortals, this is a must see.
4 out of 5 stars.
simply one of the worst movies i have ever seen!!
all the action is in the trailer. slow and made with a very dark backround at all times. skip it, wait till its on cable and you will agree with me. don
absolute garbage..... the story might be ok (at best) but the entire movie felt like it was filmed on a high school stage, the backgrounds were bad the acting was bad. it tried hard to be 300 except i finished watching 300!!! i made it to about the 45 minute mark and had to shut it off.
do yourself a favour and watch a re run of..... well anything!!
it was the best movie ever
excellent, better than mission impossible or sherlock holmes, great visual effects
Was not much story and kinda over bloody for what it is. Not my usal cup of tea, it was okay for a one time seeing.
Awesome action packed movie.
