It Won't Let You Down
on December 20, 2016
If there's one thing Mickey Roarke can play well, that's a sleaze. As King Hyperion he is on a quest to destroy pretty much anything that gets in his way and that includes EVERYBODY. Enter Theseus (Henry Cavill), a young man chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans) to take Hyperion on.
The movie revolves around the Epirus Bow, a bow which allows the wielder unlimited power. Hyperion wants it in order to conquer the world. Obviously the battle is there. If you've watched any of the other "ancient Greek" movies, 300 (which I enjoyed), Troy (which went on far too long), Clash of the Titans (which this is sort of an "after that movie"), you'll get the gist of what this is.
Special effects are all over the place as well as a boatload of CGI. Luckily, none of that really gets in the way as it does with some movies. If you're looking for "Saturday afternoon entertainment", look no more. It's obvious you've read this much so you are interested in this type of flick. It won't let you down.
