Mythology meets MTV
25 June 2000 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I made the error of buying the DVD of this, so I thought I would write a warning to others to beware. I found modest acting, dialog written in teenage mall slang, lots of tilting and panning camera moves meant to enhance the illusion of excitement, and painfully fractured Greek mythology (since when was the Greek god of war meant to be a scheming villain?). My roommate, his girlfriend and I watched it in a sort of amazed stupor. Ian Bohen is cute, that's about all I can say in its favor.
