Audience Reviews for The Odyssey
The movie is abhorrently cheesy, abominably acted, badly written, horribly directed, hideously unexciting, atrociously executed, unintentionally hilarious when it wants to be serious, unintentionally unfunny when it wants to be hilarious.
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! :)
