Storyline

Perseus is the favored son of the god Zeus, but he has unwittingly ticked off the sea goddess Thetis. Just to make things worse, Perseus falls in love with the lovely Princess Andromeda, who used to be engaged to Thetis's son. Soon Perseus is off on one quest after another, with Zeus helping, Thetis hindering, and lots of innocent bystanders getting stabbed, drowned, and squished.

Trivia

Producer Charles H. Schneer said of this film, "We have given form to what has been in the eye of people who have read the story of Perseus and Andromeda since the Greek myth was first put on paper." See more »

Goofs

Later on in the movie, when Perseus and his guards are fighting the two-headed wolf, his two guards put a slash in the cheek of the wolf. There is a brief splash of blood shown on the left head of the wolf on the right side of its face. Then a couple seconds later, the blood is completely gone. See more »

Excellent Fantasy Movie
1 November 2004 | by (The Bumble's Cave) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. I remember when it made it's debut in 1981. Sure the stop motion special effects used in the movie were just about at their end by that time, but that does not detract one iota from the story. Special effects DO NOT make a movie. Good acting and story do, period.

The movie of course is based on the Greek myth of Perseus. It follows the original myth rather well but of course there was some artistic license taken. A few of my favorite scenes were the encounter with the three blind witches, the crossing of the River Styx and of course the showdown with Medusa.

I fully recommend you see the movie and remember, don't pay the ferryman until he gets you to the other side.
