The acting from Henry Cavill (aka the new Superman) was more solid than expected, but I thought Mickey Rourke stole the show as the evil King Hyperion. He is the most ruthless and intimidating villain I've seen in recent memory. Darth Vader looks like a nice leader in comparison, because if you fail this guy, you will die in a very unpleasant manner guaranteed. At least Vader gave that dude more than one chance. Luke Evans made a very good Zeus as well.
If you want some excellent and violent action scenes, coupled with some good performances, this is worth seeing. 2-D was good enough for me.
In Hellenas (Greece), our hero is Theseus (Henry Cavill, the future Superman) - actually, to get this out of the way, the film uses a bunch of mythological characters' names (Theseus, Phaedra, Lysander, Hyperion), but the characters in question haven't any real relation to their mythological counterparts - the bastard son of a village woman.Read more ›
Mickey Rourke plays King Hyperion a mortal who wants the Epirus Bow so he can unleash the Titans upon the earth. The oracle priestess played by Freida Pinto for sees all of this and joins Theseus on his quest to find the Epirus Bow before King Hyperion. This movie did not follow the original mythology because Theseus had seven quests he had to fulfill then he became King of Athens. So if a teacher is thinking of showing this to a class it did not follow the mythology. Zeus gave Theseus a sword and Athena gave Theseus a pair of golden sandals. Well that does not happen. In the film Theseus fights the Minotaur which is just a guy wearing a helmet in the shape of a bull. Theseus finds the bow and defeats the bull. This movie was in no way as good as GLADIATOR. It may not even be some people's cup of tea. The shots in the movie were dark and it was hard to watch at times. The filming either took place in a cave or in a tunnel or in the Minotaur's lair for instance. I did like the movie but I didn't love it. You have to know some mythology to understand what is going on in the film.Read more ›

Decent film. Visually stunning though dark. Much like 300 since the director was the same. A little twist on the Greek myths but fun.Published 26 days ago by Courtney Allen
