I saw this movie in 3D when it came out in theaters and I actually liked it, not loved, but it was decent for what it was trying to do. It has the obvious comparisons to 300 which was, ultimately, better (I guess). The visuals are stunners. The acting decent. If you are constantly comparing this movie to 300 in your head while watching it then you will come away from it not impressed. Just watch it as a stand alone movie and not a 300 comparison which I did. I liked it enough to buy it on blu-ray so a hater I am not.

This movie reminded me of movies like the original Jason and the Argonauts and others from that era. Loved the look of the film and the effects also. Some of the performances seemed a bit wooden but I was able to overlook that for the most part.

This Sword & Sandal flick based on legends of Greek mythology is a good value for the buck. It follows in the footsteps (or - should I say: on the wings ?) of the epic flick = 300, and the producers are the same bunch. The hero = Theseus, is played by the same actor who did really well in the Superman role in the movie with co-star Russell Crowe). It is well directed. It is action-filled. And it is shock-full of CGI. Fun to watch, however, the fault lies in lack of character built-up and the Directors got their Myths mixed-up with the Gods known in historical Greece. Nice cameo role by great actor John Hurt. I would recognize that voice anywhere !

I bought this flick hoping for awesome special effects and action, and wasn't disappointed. Decent story and acting, perhaps a bit thin on the story line if you want to get picky - but if you want great visuals and stress-free entertainment, this movie won't disappoint.

Ok, so totally not for children...not just the scenes but some adult themes wouldn't be comprehended at younger ages. Bare minimum age to watch would maybe be 13? Your own discretion is advised. That being said, the movie delivered. These times in both reality and mythology were pretty messed up so to see a movie about it that's dancing around the fact that barbaric things happened would be a disappointment (refer to clash of the titans for a good reference as to what I mean). So if you wanna see an action movie with some cool CG, good story, and Mickey Rourke, get this movie.
