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

I really enjoyed this film.I am mad about classic stories,fairy tales,myths etc.I cant say that Jason and the argonauts(2000) was perfect but everyman has his own idea about how to be told a story.I think that the both main gods (Zeus and his wife)are bad pictured.I believe they must be much older and representative,and the film makers had to make them look like the other actors-long curled hairs and beards.There a lots of sculptures of ancient Greek gods in the museums.I know that Americans like to have both colored and white actors in the movies but it was a pretty big surprise for me to see a black actor playing the Orfeus.I mean that Orfeus is a Trakh.We Bulgarians learn at school that Orfeus and his tribe are our ancestors.I think that all the actors did their best,and the digital effects were great and the story is really excellent.
