Jason and the Argonauts
release year:1963 genre:fantasy viewing setting:home VHS, 7/28/98 what I expected:old "epic" questing what I got:dated fantasy with the simplest of plots
synopsis:Young adventurer Jason gathers great heroes and athletes on a great ship and goes on a great quest.
impressions:The plot just zipped along - often, the movie cut to a new scene with little explanation as to how a previous sutuation was resolved. However, this is not a movie to see for plot. It had some good special effects that were probably awesome in 1963. Kudos to Ray Harryhausen.
acting:Nothing remarkable, though no one did a bad job.
final word:Neat at times, boring at others - perhaps best for kids.
