BBB.5

(out of 5)

He travels across lands and endures many obstacles put upon him by the thunderous temper of Zeus () in his quest to accomplish his task. The film has a somewhat clunky narrative, but the many celebrity cameos by the likes of ,  and  (aptly cast as Aphrodite, and also Mrs. Harry Hamlin at the time) and Harryhausen’s terrific effects will nail you to your seat and guarantee you a good time. This was the last feature film to have the benefit of the visual effects genius’s work, and it stands as a great testament to him.
