Wonderful movie!!

by Donna on 8/13/2002

Wonderful movie about Greek mythology!! I watch this movie every year on TV, so I'm glad that it's finally on DVD. Harry Hamlin (of L.A. Law fame) portrays Perseus; Burgess Meredith portrays a playwright who helps Perseus realize his destiny; and Sir Laurence Olivier portrays Zeus, Greek God of all Gods (and Perseus' father). The movie is delightful, the special effects are great, and seeing Harry Hamlin in a toga is a sight to behold!! Read More

YESNO

Maybe not for the kids, you decide

by Dan on 8/17/2007

The movie's main description on this site says "a treat for both kids and adults." If you don't mind the three instances of female nudity in the film, that may be true. Early in the film there is a good shot of a women's bare breasts as she prepares to nurse a child, and shortly after, a full backside shot of her and a young boy as they walk nude together on the beach. Later in the film a woman is being given a bath by servants and rises out of the bath nude, providing a partial front and full backside shot. Fortunately, these scenes are not part of immoral sexual activity, but if your kids are not ready for female nudity in film, you may want to reconsider getting this for your family. Read More

Editors Note
Note Full of pride, Cassiopeia compares her daughter's beauty to that of Hera. Angered, the queen of the gods has Poseidon unleash the monstrous beast Craken to destroy their village unless Cassiopeia's daughter, Andromeda, is sacrificed. Perseus, the son of Zeus, becomes enchanted with the breathtaking beauty and is determined to save her from this fate. The young hero, armed with a magical shield, a winged stallion and a mechanical owl, discovers the only way to defeat the monster is with the head of Medusa. The gods watch and intervene on Perseus' quest to save his beloved.^This was legendary special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen's last film before he retired from creating movie magic. L.A. LAW's Harry Hamlin stars as the Greek mythological hero Perseus who fights snake-haired Medusa and two-headed dogs to save the lovely Andromeda (Judi Bowker). Laurence Olivier, as Zeus, is one of the many screen legends in this adventure. Burgess Meredith, Claire Bloom, Maggie Smith and Ursula Andress round out the cast as the Gods of Mount Olympus.^Director Desmond Davis was camera operator on TOM JONES and A TASTE OF HONEY, two influential early 1960s British films. Writer Beverly Cross was one of the writers on 1963's Ray Harryhausen film, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS.
