I'm not really into this type of movie, but it actually looks kinda good.

same producers, not same director.
it's from the director of The Cell , The Fall. He used to be the second unit director for David Fincher.

Why are they calling the hero Theseus? I read a synopsis of the story and the character shares nothing in common with the Theseus from myth and tragedy. I can't even find the barest link between the two.

there can be more than one person called theseus!
maybe this is just a different one
like jesus in the big lebowski

There are very few major heroes from antiquity commonly known in 21st century America. Perseus, Hercules, Theseus and Jason are the only four I can think of. Maybe Oedipus if you count him for slaying the Sphinx. Obviously if you use the name Theseus, most people will automatically associate the character with the labyrinth on Crete and the Minotaur. Just choose another name, you know?

you forgot odysseus

Just saw it, and i liked it. Of course it was pretty bloody (as to be expected) but that didn't really bother me. The story was pretty solid i thought and the acting was good. But i thought it was weird how they portrayed the Titans. Not really how they were in greek mythology.

Yeah and Henry Cavill is pretty hot ^_^

and Orpheus, Prometheus and so on and so on....

anyway, this story is more a fan fiction of Greek Mythology.

I would call it the opposite of fan fiction in the sense that passionate admirers of Greek mythology appear to hate it. Certainly the press and critics haven't been kind.

I haven't done any polls, but the mutilation of the story went far beyond even the movie Troy. I suppose you could say the writers haven't even mutilated the story-rather just re-written it from scratch using some guy named Theseus.

As an aside, Odysseus and Orpheus aren't traditional "quest" heroes like the four I mentioned. Orpheus wasn't tasked with ressurecting Eurydice, but rather he himself opted to save her because he loved her. Also, having only a lyre, it's hard to call him a hero without any physical exploits. Odysseus didn't participate in a quest either, unless you include the Trojan War, which seems to stretch the definition of a quest. And the Odyssey is simply a Nostoi, or a return home. Again, not a quest hero.

Technically anyone from the heroic age, the Trojan War and before (and arguably one generation after) are part of the Heroic Age, and therefore anyone from that period can be called a hero. Under that definition, anyone, no matter how minor or villainous can be a "hero," such as Medusa or Herakles' arms-bearer Hylas.

And of course Prometheus, being a god, is not a hero.

That shouldn't be a good sign

It was pretty good though Theseus only used the bow like once and his prisoner friend got a way more epic kill than he did. My friend who is in love with Athena was super pissed off when i told him she died in the film. Oh and aren't there more than 6 f'in gods on Olympus. And where the hell was Ares he would have f'in owned those Titans. Oh and did Posieden survive?

Ok. Prometheus is a titan, champion of mankind.
Is Heracles human, he is the son of Zeus.
Is Theseus human, he is the son of Poseidon.

You're splitting hair with the mythological hero definition.
Several references would put Orpheus as a hero way before Oedipus.

Odysseus and even Achille are mythological heroes.

I just saw it, and enjoyed it a lot. Waaaaay more bloody than I was expecting though. Jeeeezus this film is violent.

I liked the angle they played of having events that happened be warped by the story telling of said events, such as the fight with the Minotaur, who was actually a human.

To Seta: Ares was killed by Zeus for interfering with the Human struggle.
