Storyline

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 Anonymous

Trivia

Henry Cavill did not do any weight training for his preparation for this film. His physique was achieved though a a tabata style training regime consisting of only body weight exercises. This training methodology was chosen because the goal was to not put on much mass but to develop a very lean, highly defined physique. See more »

Goofs

Although the opening text places the movie in 1228 BC, there are numerous examples of weaponry, fashion, architecture, plumbing, design, etc., from much later time periods. It should be remembered that this movie is about fantasy, not history, so there is no attempt to recreate a specific time period accurately. The filmmakers stated that they based the look of the film on Renaissance painting styles. As long as the technologies and designs in the movie are something that existed by the 16th century, and therefore artists of that time could have conceived of it, they get a free pass and are not regarded as goofs.

It was a entertaining flick with mythological elements but could have been better
2 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the trailer to this movie I thought it would be a lame movie that has mythological elements in it like the recent "Clash of the Titans" movie. But this movie I gotta admit is much better with the direction and the gory and bloodiness of it all. The movie is brutal like how mythological movies like this should be. The story isn't anything amazing or anything like that but the cinematography, the violence and the mythological powers that is portrayed in this movie makes it worth a watch. The parts where the gods comes down to intervene or just fight is very cool to watch and is some of the most entertaining parts of the movie. If the story was good as some of the sequences in this movie this could have easily been a must see movie of 2011. But still it's a entertaining flick that I didn't regret forking over few bucks to see in theater.

7.4/10
