Ok, this is a really good movie. Any Objectivist would like this movie a lot. I really have no idea how it was made in this age! -It glorifies the human body in a way unlike any movie I've ever seen. Examples: (without giving anything away) Classical style statues are shown throughout, in a serious manner In the Titans' prison, the entire giant room is held up by four giant human bodies (male) with interlocking arms. Human statues depicted as strength incarnate are housing a prison for titans. -Fairly decent ethics message: The hero exemplifies pride and integrity, not sacrificing himself, sole goal is revenge. The villain is depicted as dirty, ugly, he kills his own men for little reason. His explicit goal is to destroy humanity. The gods (great costumes btw) love humanity and want to save it, but chose not to interfere. Great things are achievable in this movie, as are morals in general. Quote at the beginning and end: "All souls are immortal, but the souls of the righteous are immortal AND divine." (emphasis theirs) This is narrated in front of a Greek classical style mural. This is a really good movie. It is worth watching, in my opinion, unlike any movie in years. It's a serious romantic (like how Rand meant it) movie. Link to trailer: (which I admit doesn't show much of what I'm talking about, but you have to imagine, it was marketed to the 99.999% non-Objectivist world, and as a result shows almost nothing but brief (in the movie) action scenes) On that topic if it was marketed to Objectivists, it would be a completely different trailer. http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi1360370713/
