This was not brilliant and inventive just stumbling, long-winded and self-important. There a Cyclopes, a trident and plenty of killing but precious little emotional content. Hades and Zeus have ratty wigs and glue on beards. This isn’t evenly wildly hyperbolic as the hero defines himself in angry opposition to his dad like any similarly troubled teen with un-eloquent rage and un-unique fury.
There is a robot owl, naggy nasal and neurotic characters with no biting anger or wit and a rather ungodly god of the forge. Also there is a labyrinth, slamming bluntness and Danny Huston is in here somewhere. This was a proven audience repellent full of pointless diversions and processed cheese that is laughably banal. The hero gets a son, save us from a 3rd one.
“Your daddy became drunk on power!”
“You designed Tartarus.”
“I built it from the outside in.”
