The adventures of Odysseus are dramatic exciting and interesting even to a contemporary audience It is a story of a great warrior who is cursed by the gods and must wander the seas for years after the Trojan War There is beautiful scenery in Turkey and of course you have ships at sea and goddesses and gods causing confusion with the humans What they did with the special effects is pretty impressive Some of the more complex scenes were filmed in Malta I noticed that there was some overacting when the characters emphasis their emotions strongly I shouldnt laugh when actors are crying but that is the effect that the overplaying of emotions becomes funny However if you consider how the individuals really might have acted this is perhaps more true to ancient life It is true that in the original Odyssey men cried more than men now in our timeI especially loved seeing all the gods and goddesses in the movie I liked goddess Athena a lot She was definitely a highlight in this movie Her eyes are very beautiful in this movie With a twinkle in her eye she sends Odysseus off to be brave because it seems she is rather fond of him Another highlight is the horse and ships The Trojan Horse makes was very well made like all the ships I was amazed by the special effects in Hades As Odysseus descends into Hades he is almost overwhelmed with the heat Some of the bloodiest scenes Ive ever seen occur in this movie Bodies being gobbled up by hungry sea creature and blood splattering on a wooden deck or a Cyclops tearing a body apart to devour it wasnt horrific yet disturbing Because it happens during the daytime the effect is not as intense I would recommend this movie to those who like Greek Mythology or who want to have a visual reference in your mind when ready or listening
