Not exactly a masterpiece...
25 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'The Odyssey' is quite likely the worst film you will ever come across. In which case why give it two stars, why not one? Well The truth is its so bad I actually enjoy watching it. It's hilariously bad. The first time i saw it i laughed from start to finish, the second time i watched it i somehow laughed even more.

It is a blend of disappointing animation and atrocious music. If you paused the tape you would see three images at once. The script is terrible, the jokes arn't funny and yet i just can't stop laughing. The voice acting is wooden to say the least. Annoying wailing chords overlay pictures of sheep. You have to ask yourself how it could be that at no point the proudction team thought to step up and say that maybe it might be a good idea just to cancel the whole thing.

Watch it and enjoy its atrociousness for yourself is all i can say. There's just to much wrong with it, it would take me years to point out everything.
