This absurd, unwieldy adventure -- if that's the word -- is no worse, but certainly no better, than most of its kind.

Jason and the Argonauts -- certainly a wondrous film at its time -- benefits from nostalgia, and is moviemaking in a rarefied form.

What comes to mind immediately with a mere mention of this Greek myth are Ray Harryhausen's special effects, especially those swashbuckling skeletons

The straight story of Jason's exploits, told with magic and imagination and a minimum of studio trickery, might have been delightful. This version is more bull than Bulfinch.
