Action: Looking to avenge his mother's murder, an ancient Greek stonemason becomes the leader of a small group that sets out to take on a ruthless king and his army who are desirous of unleashing the titans to end the reign of the gods and destroy all of mankind.
Long ago and before the appearance of humans, powerful beings known as the Immortals ruled the Earth. But as they ended up battling each other, they learned they weren't immortal, with the victors becoming the gods -- such as Poseidon (KELLAN LUTZ), Athena (ISABEL LUCAS) and her father, Zeus (LUKE EVANS) -- while the defeated became the titans, locked for perpetuity in Mount Tartarus. The only thing that can unlock them is the magical Epirus bow, but its location is unknown.

But that hasn't prevented ruthless King Hyperion (MICKEY ROURKE) and his massive army from laying waste to the lands and villages they encounter while searching for that bow in 1228 B.C. Blaming the gods for not answering his prayers to save his sick wife and children, Hyperion now wants revenge on them by unleashing the titans, a troubling development seen in a vision by the virgin oracle Phaedra (FREIDA PINTO).

In that, she also saw stonemason Theseus (HENRY CAVILL) who lives in a cliffside village with his mother Aethra (ANNE DAY JONES) but is rebuked by the likes of soldier Lysander (JOSEPH MORGAN) from joining their ranks and defending themselves from Hyperion's approach. Unbeknownst to Theseus, he's become the chosen one to save mankind by none other than Zeus who appears to him in the form of an Old Man (JOHN HURT).

Hyperion isn't aware of that, but he knows of Phaedra and believes she can lead him to the bow, so he tortures other oracles and even a monk (GREG BRYK) in hopes of locating her. Little does he know that she's traveling with Theseus and his warrior friend Stavros (STEPHEN DORFF) who are on a quest to find and stop the king. And that's especially true for Theseus who longs to avenge his mother's murder by the hands of Hyperion. With the king getting closer to finding the bow, they must contend with the possibility of him unleashing the titans and thus creating an epic battle on Earth the likes of which haven't been seen in eons.

If they're fans of films such as "300," they probably will.
For sequences of strong bloody violence, and a scene of sexuality.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
