The eschewing of modern optical effects techniques in favor of the classic stop-motion animation work of special effects legend Ray Harryhausen was a delightful highlight of this action adventure that attempted to give Greek mythology the Star Wars (1977) treatment. Harry Hamlin stars as Perseus, a mortal who, due to the interference of the mighty god Zeus (Laurence Olivier), finds himself in the city of Joppa, far away from his island home.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The visual effects are clearly the only thing here that's worth bothering with."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"...the last hurrah for the master of stop-motion animation, Ray Harryhausen, and it's unfortunate he went out on a less-than-perfect note."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Os efeitos criados pelo lendário Harryhausen podem parecer frágeis diante dos avanços atuais, mas são perfeitos para esta obra que permanece descompromissadamente divertida."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"I learned much of my mythology from this film."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"visually striking"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"...a camp-infused fantasy flick that will probably work best among younger viewers and those with fond memories of its original theatrical release."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A poignant eulogy to Harryhausen's handcrafted illusionism in a decade of increasingly synthetic effects"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"For Harryhausen worshippers only."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Dull adventure about Greek gods, despite Ray Harryhausen effects"
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"A minor classic in fantasy film circles with marvelous Harryhausen effects."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Teenage boys will love it, but the rest of us will be frustrated by the storytelling, the shaky camerawork and the dubiously effective 3D presentation, which distracts more than it offers"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"let your mind go, forgive the wear and tear of time and enjoy the adventure"
‑ Jason McKiernan,
"Though star-packed the film is sleep inducing."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Offers an opportunity to see Shakesperean actors (Olivier, Maggie Smith) playing mythic roles in a frivolous, campy way."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Fun spin on the Greek myths despite its general goofiness"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
