What always struck me as odd about this film was the supposed love for the original which director Louis Letterier claimed to have (with it even inspiring parts of the finale of his 2008 film 'The Incredible Hulk') for it.
Which made the fact that he made such a lifeless and dull movie all the more surprising.
While it mostly follows the story of the 1981 original and while it obviously boasts cutting edge special effects and set design the performances across the board are pretty mundane and it feels like a film which has had a lot of material cut out of it (unless a fair few major names signed up to appear onscreen amongst the Gods for just seconds and without any dialogue virtually) as well. I got bored pretty quickly with it all, some rare moments of location photography aside.
All round, it's just not at all a good film in any way.
