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>

Not as great as the original
13 January 2004 | by rtfischelSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the 'Jason and the Argonauts' remake. I almost bought it, until I reached the end of it and realised that Talos, the Bronze Giant, had not made an appearance in it. C'mon, this character made the first one so special, so great. Talos really comes alive in glorious special effects; I wish they'd kept him in, I really do. Then I would've bought the re-make, which in other respects is more faithful to the mythology. Admittedly, Talos was only peripherally important in the myth: he lived on the island of Crete and used to hurl large rocks at passing vessels. Only by Medea's charm can the monster be overcome. They did the same to 'The Odyessy': left out the Sirens, who lured unwary sailors to their doom on the rocks. C'mon! How can you have a film about 'The Odyessy' and not include them? Let us hope the next person to write a screenplay based on an ancient myth will include all the important bits seemingly left out of modern remakes. even though they do look good.
