'SUPERB VISUAL CONTENT THROUGHOUT'
on 26 November 2014
The film tells the tale of 'Theseus'(Henry Cavill) a well trained young warrior living the life of a peasant in a small Grecian community.
An invasion is imminent, 'King Hyperion'( Mickey Rourke) is in search of the legendary long lost 'Bow' which has special powers.
The peasants are told to wait until the morning before moving into the fortified area, however, it' proves to be too late as the invading forces sweep into the small encampment killing all but a few.
The survivors including 'Theseus' are to be sent to work in the salt mines.
However the survivors are helped to escape their captors, 'Theseus' goes back to his home to give his mother who he'd been forced to see killed at the hands of the invading king, a proper funeral in accordance to tradition.
It is at this time, 'Theseus' stumbles across the much sought 'Bow' soon learning it's power.
Now 'Theseus' sets out to rally the few to face the many, and fulfil his destiny.
The 'Gods' who are only supposed to look on are set to get involved.
This is a really good watch in both 3D and 2D, maybe not as intense in battle as some of the battle classics we've seen in recent years, however it is visually impressive with some pretty good battle sequences, certainly worthy of at least a viewing if not adding to your collection.
