I was a bit underwhelmed by the overall storyline. That gods are dependent on humans' prayer for
their power seemed odd, but OK...I'll let it pass. That Ares and Hades would align against Zeus seemed plausible--both had motive against Zeus to fuel them. But freeing Cronus as part of their plot went too far. Well--perhaps allowable. How else can one challenge Zeus?
The brother-thief-Navigator (can't even remember his name) character seemed almost irreverent and irrelevant. He couldn't even use the map he was given to get through the maze.
Cinematography and use of 3D were impressive--I found myself dodging a few times from falling debris. The acting was convincing enough--no Oscar here, but that's not why I go to such films.
Overall, B+. I am glad I saw it on the big screen.
