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

Director Tarsem Singh told Henry Cavill after their first meeting that if he got the role of Theseus, he would have to develop an "eight pack", not a "six pack", he could have very little body fat on his body and that his wardrobe would be very revealing. Cavill trained for six months and developed his abdominal muscles into a full "eight pack" which was then displayed throughout the movie in numerous shirtless scenes. He brought down his body fat percentage to 6%, which he subsequently maintained throughout the shoot. See more »

Goofs

The Thief says his name is Stavros. This translates as Cross and is one of the most common Christian names in Greece, referring to the death of Jesus. But it is very out of place in a story set long before Christianity was established. See more »

Epic Movie? More like Epic Fail.
22 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
