Epic story of the Greek legend of Theseus. The ruthless King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) leads his bloodthirsty army on a murderous rampage across Greece to find a deadly weapon that can kill the Gods themselves. Only Theseus (Henry Cavill), a mortal chosen by Zeus, King of the Gods, can lead the fight against Hyperion and his evil army with the fate of mankind and the Gods at stake.
Watched it twice and I'm still not sure whether to like or laugh at this film. Has all the elements of a "naff" distorted mythology action movie but is somehow captivating. The darkness and unusual muted colours it is filmed in are mesmeric and, surprisingly, the well-over-the-top costumes of the Gods are somehow convincing - as are their antics and prowess. The violence may seem exaggerated, too, but I guess war was not sanitized in ancient Greece, contrary what we may be led to believe by Hollywood and the censors.
