The Masterpiece. While sometimes the SFX are rather... obvious, this film has a wonderfully dark atmosphere where there nearly no hope. Well, it ends well, but it's a battle won, not the war. And on top of all there all those great actors who get gods and heroes to life.
Lacking any mythological and historic accuracy, straying quite a bit from its namesake (i.e. the original film) and maybe having slightly too long of a run time are some issues that ultimately do not ruin the experience. It's a "mindless Blockbuster", but as filmmakers and enthusiasts, why are we not allowed to enjoy a lush spectacle of effects and epic battles from time to time? Quit the snobbery, this was fun.
This movie is garbage. Absolute fucking garbage. This movie is the epitome of Hollywood cash-in remake. It’s a prime example of modern film-making injecting too much bullshit backstory and taking things too seriously. The characters are fucking dull, it looks fucking dull— it’s absolute garbage.
