Venture to the Isle of Mists and behold the horrible CGI creatures…
Truth be told, then I had no particular expectations to this movie. And I will say that the movie is entertaining enough, but it could have been better.
The story is a fairly common one; Odysseus sailing for Ithica and finding the Isle of Mist along the way. Yadda, yadda, yadda… Fairly average storyline with nothing overly impressive or new here.
As a movie of this type, trying to tell an epic tale of ancient history, the movie doesn’t really manage to punch through and make a lasting mark or statement. It sort of never rises beyond mediocrity, which was a shame.
The effects in the movie were adequate, well most of them at least. The creatures were hilariously fake to look at. They looked like horribly fake rendered CGI rejects. Had the special effects team worked harder on this, the movie could have been more enjoyable. It is sort of difficult to take something serious when it looks like something that came out of an early 1990’s PC game, back when 3D graphics were still an eyesore.
I will say that the props and wardrobe people actually did a great job in the movie, because the costumes and garments were really nice to look at; great details and it did seem valid enough.
Acting-wise, then the movie wasn’t all that noticeable. Perhaps because the characters were fairly mundane and generic, not really displaying much personality of difference from one another. It should be said that Arnold Vosloo (playing Odyesseus), Randal Edwards (playing Homer) and Stefanie von Pfetten (playing Persephone) were actually doing their part to carry the movie nicely.
If you enjoy classic tales of this genre, then there are other movies that deal with the same tale and subject that does it better than this one. I am sure that if you are a hardcore fan of ancient history and legends, then you will find some enjoyment and amusement in this movie. For us who just want to watch it for the entertainment of a movie, then “Odyesseus & the Isle of Mists” turns out to be fairly mediocre and it is not the type of movie that is likely to be on the watch-list a second time around.
Enjoyable Sunday afternoon movie for mythology buffs
I stumbled upon this fantasy film by accident and didn’t really expect much from it, even though it stars the Mummy legend, Arnold Vosloo, who made an excellent Darkman 2. I was pleasantly surprised.
The premise, about Greek hero Odysseus encountering vampires on a lost island, sounds absurd. The special effects budget was clearly small and there are some scenes when you have to imagine what the heroes are fighting since the camera doesn’t show it. However, the whole thing is saved by two factors. Firstly, the writers knew what they were doing. They were obviously familiar with Homer’s classic epic, with the protagonist’s strengths and weaknesses, and with how people talked and behaved in those mythological times. This helps makes the whole thing plausible. They also didn’t waste time on unnecessary plot detours. Further, the story is actually well-crafted and every scene is actually relevant.
Secondly, the cast perform very well. Vosloo, as ever, is charismatic, and delivers his dialogue excellently. Randal Edwards makes a believable Homer and JR Bourne is a courageous Perimedes. All this without any irritating side kicks or distracting contemporary styles of speech.
If you’re expecting a modern-day horror film, you’ll be disappointed. But if you watch this with some cynicism, if you’re familiar with Homer’s Odyssey and enjoy a different slant on the vampire myth, this is a perfect Saturday afternoon movie, which may leave you with some interesting thoughts.
