Cheeseball and miscast epic but okay if you're looking for a mindless fantasy pic. Dennis Hopper should never have done biblical films he was just to contemporary in persona.

A great action film remake that was shown on TV recently with a strong cast and updated SFX.

At first I thought there was only one Jason and the Argonauts movie and that I was watching it. But then I realised that CGI was pretty good and all and that it was quite a recent movie. So yeah, it wasn't the 1963 version I was watching, it was this one. This is a 2 part movie (or apparently a TV show), each part about an hour and a half long. The film is about, as you guessed it, Jason's quest after a Golden Fleece, with his newly found crew, just like in Greek mythology.

I was really impressed by the character development in the film. All of the main and supporting actors got into their roles well, giving each character a distinct personality. Hercules was absolutely kickass, although I felt as though he was supposed to be stronger than they depicted him in the movie. I didn't feel as though there was much chemistry between Jason and Medea. Maybe because their love was induced by the will of the Gods as opposed to coming about naturally. Speaking of the Gods, every scene with Zeus and Hera watching the mortals from the Heavens was absolutely amazing. The actors did a great job there and depicted the personalities of those two Gods very accurately.

The action scenes were superb, ranging from Poseidon's wrath at sea, to a fight with harpies, to Jason's challenge against a metal fire-breathing bull, to a fight with the dragon guarding the Golden Fleece. The only disappointment in this film is that THERE WAS NO TALOS!!! I was eagerly awaiting that scene, but it never came! But despite that you'll still be pleased to see many other mythological creatures.

This is going to go on my list of favourite epic movies. Truly fantastic fantasy adventure film!
