Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Sam Worthington (Avatar) in it and you all know how much I love Aussies... not this time, sorry Sam. I might give you an extra point 'cos you were born in my town but that whole performance looked really damn uncomfortable... and your accent is the most ocker Aussie accent I've ever heard, I can't believe they didn't ask for you to tone it down a little. 'Tis kinda cool that the son of Zeus is Australian though. *snickers*
Liam Neeson as Zeus... you'd think it would be as awesome as Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars but no... Zeus, I'm sad to say, is lame. I thought Ares looked so much like Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones) that I just couldn't get past it. I imagined it was him through the whole thing, it made it slightly better.
I do love Ralph Fiennes (Schindler's List) though. Still, he was much too big for the role of Hades. It is nice to see him with a nose now after so many years of playing Voldemort, and at least him and Zeus sort of looked alike...I don't know, I think the script let them all down; it was boring and predictable.
