Before the dawn of man or beast, immortals waged war against each other. The victors named themselves gods while the vanquished were named the Titans and imprisoned beneath Mount Tartarus. The Epirus Bow, a weapon of immense power, is lost on Earth during the war. In 1228 B.C., the mortal Hyperion searches for the Bow, intending to use it to release the Titans to spite the gods for failing to save his family. Hyperion captures the virgin oracle Phaedra, elieving that she can find the Bow's resting place.
In a small village nearby, the inhabitants prepare to flee to Tartarus to avoid Hyperion's army. One inhabitant, Theseus, is a skilled warrior trained by his mentor, the old man. Theseus and his mother Aethra, considered undesirables because Theseus was born from Aethra having no father, are forced to stay behind by villagers and Athenian soldiers including Lysander. Theseus ably battles multiple opponents until the Athenian officer Helios intervenes and discharges Lysander for his actions. Lysander travels to Hyperion, offering his service and the village's location. Hyperion accepts, but maims and castrates Lysander for being a traitor. Hyperion's forces attack Theseus' village, murdering the villagers and Aethra, and taking Theseus captive.
The old man, revealed to be Zeus, meets with his fellow gods Athena , Poseidon, Ares, Apollo, and Heracles, and warns them not to interfere in mortal affairs as gods, believing that, until the Titans are released, they must have faith in mankind to defeat Hyperion. Theseus is enslaved alongside the thief Stavros. Phaedra, who is held captive nearby, witnesses a vision of Theseus. Phaedra organizes a riot, using the chaos to escape with Theseus, Stavros, and the other slaves. Theseus decides to pursue Hyperion and attempts to capture a boat, but he and his allies are overwhelmed by Hyperion's forces. Poseidon purposefully falls from Olympus into the ocean, causing a tidal wave that wipes out Hyperion's men. Phaedra sees another vision of Theseus standing near a shrouded body. She determines that Theseus must return home to bury Aethra.
While laying Aethra to rest, Theseus discovers the Epirus Bow embedded in nearby rock. He frees the Bow, but is attacked by Hyperion's henchman the Minotaur. Theseus kills Minotaur, and uses the Bow to save his allies from being executed, before collapsing from poisoned scratches inflicted by Minotaur. Phaedra tends to Theseus and later falls in love with him, stripping her of the visions she deemed a curse. The group returns to Phaedra's temple while Hyperion and his forces are away at Tartarus. At the temple, Stavros and Theseus are lured into an ambush, and Theseus loses the bow. Outnumbered by Hyperion's men, Ares directly intervenes to save Theseus, and Athena provides the men with horses to reach Tartarus. Zeus arrives and angrily executes Ares for disobeying his command. Zeus tells Theseus that they will receive no more aid from the gods, and he must justify the faith Zeus has in him alone. The lost bow is brought to Hyperion.
Theseus, Stavros, and Phaedra, travel to Tartarus. Theseus tries in vain to warn the Tartarus King Cassander of Hyperion's plans, but Cassander dismisses his talk of gods as myth, intending to negotiate peace with Hyperion. The following day Hyperion uses the Bow to destroy Tartarus' seemingly indestructible gate killing Helios. Theseus leads the Athenian army to war against the Hyperion forces, killing Lysander. Hyperion ignores the battle and travels through to Mount Tartarus, killing Cassander. Hyperion uses the Bow to breach the mountain and free the Titans before Stavros and Theseus can stop him. The force of the release knocks the mortals down. Stavros takes the Bow and kills a Titan, but he is massacred by the other Titans. Zeus, Poseidon, Athena, Heracles and Apollo arrive and battle the Titans while Theseus fights Hyperion. The gods prove more powerful than the Titans, but they are overwhelmed by the sheer number of Titans, with all but Zeus and Poseidon being killed. Theseus kills Hyperion, and Zeus collapses the mountain before ascending to Olympus with Athena's body. The collapsing mountain wipes out Hyperion's men. The mortally wounded Theseus is transported to Olympus for his sacrifice and given a place among the gods.
Several years later, Theseus' story has become legend and Phaedra has given birth to Acamas, Theseus' son. Acamas is met by the old man who informs the child that in the future he too will one day fight against evil. Acamas sees a vision of the sky filled with gods and Titans fighting.
in my opinion this is a great flim
