The Gist: Theseus fights the evil King Hyperion while the gods of Olympus gear up for war against the Titans, should they be released by Hyperion. Got that? Plus, a second-sighted oracle tells Theseus his future and hopes to be part of it.
The Verdict: Skip it. The complex Greek legends don’t get any favors from this movie that adds extra confusion to its storyline. The heavily stylized images are at times beautiful and at times laughable, as when the oracles, for reasons unknown, insist on wearing lampshades from Bed Bath and Beyond on their heads. Was there Bed Bath and Beyond in ancient Greece? No? I didn’t think so. Plus, the movie is at times very cool in its fighting and effects, but at other times painfully and unnecessarily gory and violent. Read our full review.
Be Aware: Rated R for strong, bloody violence and a scene of sexuality.
