Some things I didn't like in the story . . .


1) The ship's crew were ill-prepared and ran low of water (and food?)

2) Talos is wavering and certain crew members remain too close to
his falling body.

3) Jason and all the rest of his crew and the woman had plenty of time
to escape down the rocks and get into their ship. They just stood there
waiting for the next action on them. As it was, count the number
of seconds that the villain began throwing the Hydra's teeth at the ground
until the first one sprang up.





Country + RAP = CRAP

Country + ROCK = CROCK

4) The fact that they never got back home. The producers had already pissed on the mythology so much I don't see why they couldn't have at least given the film an actual ending

Long journey. That stuff runs out no matter how prepared you are.

'2) Talos is wavering and certain crew members remain too close to

Yes and those certain crew members (including Hylas) are crushed to death when Talos falls on them. Your point?

'3) Jason and all the rest of his crew and the woman had plenty of time

Good for them. Medea is leaving her home forever. She needs to reflect on that.

There was supposed to be a sequel. Didn't happen. Too bad, would have been awesome.

'You replied to me instead of the OP. LOL '

My bad, sorry.

'Those weren't my comments; they were the OP's comments. LOL'

... and the first reply. Fixed those thanks.

1) Greek triremes rarely, if ever, sailed open water. A typical Greek voyage kept close to shore, stopping for the night by simply rowing the vessel onto the sand. There you'd forage for food and water, then continue on the next day.

2) that doesn't bother me.

3) It did seem to linger for a bit, but it's drama, dude. The bad guys always put on a show before laying out their final blow.
