Terrible special effects, anyway, The Odyssey is a entertaining adventure.

Kind of corny at some of the parts but it was an awesome movie & even though Odysseus had many trysts while he tried to make it home to Penelope, he never stopped loving her. I also loved the bond between him & his son, Telemachus. One of the best scenes was at the end when Odysseus killed all Penelope's suitors & the other one was when him & Penelope reconnected after 20 years. Just a great movie, especially considering the crap we usually have to watch in school. You'll love it! :)
