Nice try but it falls short.
22 January 1999 | by SeedySee all my reviews

The director has created a clan of caricatures who only fleetingly rise to the level of characters. The visual effects are primarily swirling montages and the music track overpowers many scenes. Inclusion of some episodes from the mythological story of Jason and the Golden Fleece leaves this plot merely episodic and confused. It's barely a nice try.
