Still one of the supreme Saturday matinee entertainments. I've seen this film more times than I can count and find it a vividly colorful joy. The visuals by Harryhausen are among his most iconic and the film still casts a spell among many of it's special effects set-pieces. From the island of Talos to the hissing hydra and the skeleton soldier finale. This is a great entertainment for kids and kids at heart.
