(A) fantasia of the classic Greek myth with a brawny odyssey through lands of magic, all at the behest of the gods using humans as pieces in their competitive games and wagers.

In a cinema landscape populated with all kinds of digitally created creatures and setpieces, it's nice to take a look back and witness the birth of these ideas.
