    Finally a modern myth-based movie that doesn't spend its whole time whining about the gods, or the hero's hated heritage. Not does it transform Greek myth into Christian symbology (depictions of Hades as the devil, etc). The supporting cast is great (especially the kickass inclusion of Atalanta).

    More like this, please.

    The best thing about the movie is the somber soundtrack by Alexandre Desplat.
