Here is the deal: (1) The look was very similar to "300". If you liked the stylized carnage on big
screen, then expect whole new levels of splatter patterns in this one. (2) Several reviewers knocked this movie on "character development"...yeah well, it isn't an English Patient kind of period piece, but if anything it felt to me like there was more character development than "300". (3) The only real shortcoming here is that people who don't know much about mythology are going to be a little clueless about the scenes involving the Greek gods. Which one is which isn't explicit, although you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out the guy with the trident weapon is probably Poseidon. (4) Yes, they took liberties with the original Greek story, but when did any myth-based movie ever not? More annoyed by the comic movie adaptations mucking with story canon, than i was here. (5) 3D was better than some but was no Avatar. The end.
