Whether intentional or not, 'Minotaur' fails to re-tell the Greek legend with any conviction or accuracy. As it will inevitably be compared to the mythology, it seems strange that the filmmakers made such an cheap and exploitative film and it deserves every criticism it gets.
OK, that's taking things a bit too seriously but this is an utterly crap film that fails to entertain in any possible way. How anyone can have sat through this immense guff and enjoyed it, I do not know and, if this is one of the better Sci-Fi Channel productions, I DREAD to think what the worst are like! The script is abysmal, guiding us leadenly through a far-too-familiar scenario of a monster chasing dumb people around in a confined location. This isn't bad per se but it is badly done and the characters are hugely annoying and generate no sympathy whatsoever. Worst of all, the Minotaur itself looks awful, a messy kind of mesh between prosthetics and CGI, and doesn't capture any of the legend's mystique or terror. It just looks clumsy and this spoils the film entirely, though it was getting there quite nicely without the help.
This film was so bad I fell asleep after an hour. I actually had to skip a couple of scenes because I was so bored: something I have never done before while watching a film. An undoubted waste of time.
