Henry Cavill (Theseus) refused all assistance from the make-up and visual effects departments to achieve his eight-pack for the movie. He told them, "I do not want you to draw abs on me." Cavill said it was "a pride thing" for him, and he "actually wanted to have that body for real, and show it in the film." See more »

The UK version was cut by 18 seconds to achieve a '15' certificate. Three cuts were made for violence: a mother's throat being cut; a soldier's eyes being gouged; and a king being beheaded. A disturbing scene of the oracle's 'sisters' being found roasted alive in a large metal bull was also cut. In addition to this the BBFC's website cites "reducing some focus on large splashes of blood". However, two major scenes and some smaller sequences had very significant amounts of gore digitally altered. The very extensive red bloodletting in some scenes has been changed into black 'blood' substantially altering the impact of these scenes. These changes affect several minutes of screen time. So although the overall running time has been cut by only 18 seconds the amount of censored material is much longer and very significant in changing the overall tone of the film. The USA version is uncut with an 'R' rating. See more »
i was negatively suspicious of the film,it gave me many reasons to. The 3D,little known cast as a whole,Greek mythology..
i saw it in 2D and it had a great feeling of a well made movie. Not in all aspects,it had a story that was not really interesting but the action never let you get bored. great visuals,awesome battles,incredible sound. that's what you get from this movie and if you have the right pop corn,it is enough.
historical accuracy or even mythological accuracy is not to be expected. it is vaguely reminding some things inspired from it, which is not by itself a bad thing. acting is acceptable in general and the slow motion fights are used by the director not as frequently as to be another 300 but in great scenes which i am guessing in 3D would look phenomenal.
not a great movie,it is only to be enjoyed in a big multiplex
