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

When people are being evacuated from Theseus' village, one of the carts used has modern (post-1900) bicycle wheels, complete with metal spokes (painted black) laced in a cross 3 pattern and chrome plated double flanged hubs. These would not be seen until the start of the 20th century. See more »

Quotes

Zeus: It's not living as such that's important, Theseus. It's living rightly.

Average story with extremely entertaining results
11 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to this movie on a whim and because my friends pushed me to it. I have to say that I did not regret going. The story plays out well throughout with some rushed character development and cut corners in storytelling. However, the direction was top notch, the visuals were beautiful, and the casting was even better. Mickey Rourke did an amazing job as King Hyperion, the villain you love to hate. The thing that excited me the most about this movie is how well the action and fight scenes were choreographed. I always choose story over action when it comes to films but this movie far exceeded my expectations where action was concerned. I can't stress that the story was still a good one but the choreography and intensity of the action lets you care about little else.

Bottom line: I was entertained and happy.
