Perfect? No. Entertaining? Yes.
This film certainly has its flaws. Weak character development is the main one, but it's not nonexistent. The film's atmosphere and graphic bloodshed/torture is disturbing and captivating, accurately portraying what most people imagine of Greeks fighting. The story is interesting, definitely not accurately following the mythology but creating an alternate universe with the same characters. The direction, acting, and effects were all well done. Everyone who was present at the midnight showing thoroughly enjoyed it. It is not a perfect film, but it is undeniably enjoyable and much better than other similarly themed movies that have been made recently.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Despite Freida Pinto's use of a body double for the sex scene, the scene still caused some controversy in Pinto's native India, where such scenes are considered taboo. She laughed off the criticism as she is still relatively unknown in India, choosing instead to work on projects in the US and Europe.


Quotes

Phaedra: To those whom much is given, much is taken away.


Goofs

Before the "Henry V speech," Theseus vigorously climbs up a rusty metal ladder to a higher part of the defense wall. The metal ladder is made from welded steel construction pipes (HSS or hollow structural section). Structural steels was first used in the 1700's and the process of welding used was first discovered in 1802 AD. That's just a bit too late for the "Renaissance painting" design of the movie. (See also the "incorrectly regarded as goofs" item about the Titans' cage.)


Alternate Versions

The UK version was cut by 18 seconds to achieve a '15' certificate. Three cuts were made for violence: a mother's throat being cut; a soldier's eyes being gouged; and a king being beheaded. A disturbing scene of the oracle's 'sisters' being found roasted alive in a large metal bull was also cut. In addition to this the BBFC's website cites "reducing some focus on large splashes of blood". However, two major scenes and some smaller sequences had very significant amounts of gore digitally altered. The very extensive red bloodletting in some scenes has been changed into black 'blood' substantially altering the impact of these scenes. These changes affect several minutes of screen time. So although the overall running time has been cut by only 18 seconds the amount of censored material is much longer and very significant in changing the overall tone of the film. The USA version is uncut with an 'R' rating.
