PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Perseus, demigod, son of Zeus, battles the minions of the underworld to stop them from conquering heaven and earth.
Despite the mythological nature of this film, it draws heavily on actual Minoan (Crete, approx. 2700-1450 BC) archeology for its props and costuming. The characters' long, curled hair is seen in palace frescoes from Knossos and other sites. The tiered dresses of the dancing girls in Argos' palace are PG-13 versions of the Snake Goddess figurines' costumes from the same palace site. With Andromeda's final costume, a nearly perfect replica of the Bee Pendant from Malia graces her neck; the only difference is that the movie version is constructed from silver rather than the original gold.
The oldest story ever told are written in the stars. Stories of time before man and gods, when Titans ruled the earth. The Titans were powerful but their reign was ended by their own sons: Zeus, Poseiden, and Hades. Zeus convinced his brother Hades ...
In the Pegasus' final scene, its horseshoes are visible.
There are no opening credits.
