Storyline

One of the most legendary adventures in all mythology is brought to life in Jason and the Argonauts, an epic saga of good and evil. As a mere boy Jason, the heir to the kingdom of Ancient Greece, witnesses the murder of his father at the hands of his ruthless uncle, Pelias. After narrowly escaping death, Jason flees his home and returns twenty years later to reclaim the throne. Upon learning of his return, Pelias sentences him to death. To save his life, Jason promises to deliver the most coveted gift of the gods to his uncle - the Golden Fleece. Joined by the Argonauts, a stout-hearted crew of sailors, he embarks on a perilous voyage to capture the Fleece and fulfill his destiny. Written by Ron Borgstedt <ronborgstedt@sbcglobal.net>

An epic mini-series
9 May 2000 | by mermattSee all my reviews

The mini-series is not dead as some had proclaimed. This retelling of Jason's epic journey to gain the Golden Fleece has an excellent cast and impressive FX.

Jason London is impressive as the young hero, giving this actor a long-overdue chance to shine as a new star in the heavens over Olympus. His character is the center and the anchor of the sprawling story, and he gives a strong yet appealingly vulnerable quality to his character who happens to have the same name.

Though it was odd that Poseidon looked like a bunch of rocks with legs instead of the more-common image of him as a crowned merman with trident, most of the other magical or divine elements in the story were well-acted and believably realized through the computerized FX.

This TV mini-series is a worthy successor to the 1963 film.
