Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king's hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man's conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion...until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders - including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) ... Written by
When Henry Cavill signed on to play the lead role of Theseus, the movie did not even have a finished script yet. See more »
Before the "Henry V speech," Theseus vigorously climbs up a rusty metal ladder to a higher part of the defense wall. The metal ladder is made from welded steel construction pipes (HSS or hollow structural section). Structural steels was first used in the 1700's and the process of welding used was first discovered in 1802 AD. That's just a bit too late for the "Renaissance painting" design of the movie.

Good to see you're still alive. Worried that cow had gotten the best of you.
It almost did. She saved my life.
Looks like she did more than that.
[Looks down embarrassed]
Just 'cause you have that bow doesn't mean I'm going to treat you any differently.
Good. We march to the monastery.
[Turns and starts walking away]
We have a war to fight.

Because it was beautiful to behold, I give this four stars of AWESOME visuals (including the pretty cast) but really, what a horrible story. And S L O W. Let's face it, the previews show nothing but action and that's why we pay the big bucks for Imax 3D films but when the action is nestled in between long, long drawn out and ill-formed dialogue (I honestly thought lines were forgotten in many scenes and they were running low on budget or time and just went with it) and extremely poor story-telling.....you start to feel duped. When you spend more mental energy thinking about another Coke Icee, you know you've just padded Hollywood's pockets.
