Theseus is pretty much a forgotten figure when it comes to Hollywood movies based on Greek mythology. You are more likely to find Theseus in a television series, especially if Hercules is the main character, or in a production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." There is a 1961 Italian film, "Teseo contro il minotauro," but that is just another forgotten "sword and sandals" beefcake film. Theseus is considered the greatest hero in Athenian history and while someday his story will be given the same treatment the Perseus ("Clash of the Titans"), Achilles ("Troy"), Odysseus ("The Odyssey"), and even Jason ("Jason and the Argonauts") have received, I am here to tell you that "Minotaur" is not that film. In the final analysis, this is not so much a bad film as one that is just not good.

First of all, if you were expecting this to be the story of Theseus, the young prince of Athens, who slew the Minotaur in the Labyrinth that Daedalus built for King Minos beneath his palace on the island of Crete, you are going to be sadly mistaken. First time screenwriters Nick Green and Stephen McDool set the story in the Iron Age, which means it smacks more of Robert E. Howard and the Hyborian Age of Conan the Barbarian than it does of the poet Homer and the Golden Age of Greece. So we are talking dark stone rather than white marble, or even the colorful frescoes from the Minoan palace at Knossos. Historically the Iron Age refers to the Dark Ages of Greece, which came after the dominance of the Mycenaeans, which extended beyond the High Minoan period that ended with Knossos being destroyed (specifically, iron tools are in use in Greece after 1050 BCE, while the Mycenaean take over of Knossos was four hundred years earlier).

1.0 out of 5 stars Tragic Waste of Film August 11, 2007
Upon finishing this movie, 2 questions come to mind: 1)WHY did they bother to make this?? and 2)HOW did the 2 idiots that wrote this moronic screenplay get any employment in the film industry?? For starters, why did they not make this closer to the legend and set it in ancient Greece instead of "the iron age"? I mean, "Theo" from the village of "Thena", sheesh! I know people today aren't as educated as they should be, but the writers display an absolute contempt for their audience that is unforgiveable. And did they think we would care about a bunch of annoying, 25 yr old "teenagers" who are apparently too mentally challenged to shut the hell up after the first one or two get killed because they wouldn't, well, shut the hell up? Did they think we were stupid enough to believe that? Not half as stupid as the writers who couldn't come up with anything better. And the saddest part is that this flick doesn't even have enough heart to be unintentionally funny. One would think the director would have fired the writers or at least tried to improve on the script, but, no. Apparently, the director had also suffered from oxygen deprivation in his youth.

Some have mentioned that this is a bigger budget cut above the typical sci-fi network production. Unfortunately, though they threw more money at it, they used the same, no-vision incompetents that make all their other pathetic movies, so they might as well have flushed that money down the toilet. Too bad, because the FX work on the monster was actually pretty decent. Interesting take on the minotaur, too (instead of a human body with a bull's head, it is a quadruped bull with deformed human-like features). Saying that this one is better than Sci-Fi's other movies is no compliment at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Bull, the Brother, and the Maze of Demise. November 7, 2009
A city worships the visage of the bull until they decide to birth a living god for themselves. so they take a female and feed her to the desires of their self-made god, and out comes a beast that hungers and that needs. In order to sate their creation, people are forced into the lair of the beast in order to make sure it stays happy and doesn't have to turn to Hot Pockets. It also has a sadism to it, and this is reflected in the chase it gives as it takes its hatred out on the people that come in little chains of food. One person decides to challenge this, however, and enters the maze of the minotaur in order to both find his missing loved one and to slay the beast. And so the horror begins.

First and foremost, if you watched this on television you have negated a lot of the movie. It becomes nothing but a chopped up variant of itself, and it will make you want to turn the channel. Next, forget for a second that there is a legend with a minotaur attached to it and that people know the name of the hero involved. Instead, look at this as a movie that embelishes and rewrites a things that never happened in the first place, and that makes a horrific thing live in a maze and consume people. Then envision the people and their fates and what great theatre that would make. That is how i see the city itself, with the fear it inflicts above reflected in the depths below. After that is done, imagine a thing that would be so horrid that you would be willing to take people and feed it whenever it hungers, knowing that it may get out of its maze and that it may come out and hunt yyour people.
The concept is a terrible affair.

While many people thought this movie was horrible, I liked it for a number of reasons.
