When the prince is killed in the island, the dwellers blame the villagers and they are sentenced to give eight young women per year to satisfy the Minotaur.
The shepherd Theo Tom Hardy , son of the village leader Cyrnan Rutger Hauer , misses his girlfriend that was abducted a couple of years ago. When he meets a leper seer, she tells him that his beloved Ffion is alive, and that Theo must go to the island to kill the beast and save his love.
Theo goes to the palace and faces the king Deucalion Tony Todd and the Minotaur, supported by Deucalion's sister, the queen Raphaella Michelle Van Der Water , who discloses the truth about the Minotaur.
The story is reasonable, the special effects are good and the acting is average. In the end, I liked this movie.
My vote is six. Title Brazil : "Minotauro" "Minotaur". There are definitely some people who hate Greek Mythology.
The proof lies in "Minotaur" movie. They took the story of Minotaur from the Greek Myth and they distorted so badly ending up with this awful movie.
It is supposed to chance things cause you want to improve something not to make it worst. The original story of Minotaur based on symbolism is full of meaning.
The story of this movie has nothing to tell. Absolutely not enjoyable. Like somebody else said It's silly and insulting. Tosoiba 16 March This was one of the SciFi channels better offerings although that isn't saying much.
However, any resemblance between this movie and the mythology of the Minotaur is purely coincidental.
The size of Athens's yearly tribute is wrong. The size of Athens is wrong. The hero's name is wrong Theseus, not Theo.
The gal who helped Theseus was Ariadne, daughter of King Minos and not sister to the high priest. Ariadne gave Theseus a sword to kill the Minotaur and ball of string to mark his way out of the labyrinth.
None of Thesus's companions were killed and he took Ariadne when he left, etc ad nauseum. But if you are not a purest and don't mind the "literary license" it wasn't too bad.
The story line was better than usual, the special effects weren't too bad considering the limited amount of money spent, and character development was about the same as usual.
NateWatchesCoolMovies 8 April If you ever find yourself in conversation with Tom Hardy at some cocktail party one can dream , Minotaur is the film you bring up to both flabbergast and embarrass him, if only for your own amusement.
It's Tom's first ever starring role, and therefore should never be forgotten, like those old camcorder tapes of kids learning to ride sans training wheels for the first time.
Tom plays the son of a Viking chieftain a brief Rutger Hauer , who goes looking for his true love, one among a few of the village's youngsters who get kidnapped every year by a freaky pseudo African tribe of weirdos who sacrifice youths to the mythical Minotaur, residing in rocky catacombs beneath their city's surface.
Led by supreme weirdo Deucalion Candyman's Tony Todd, hamming up every scene , who fervently wants to impregnate his own hot sister chill, dude , and oversees this theatrical occult ritual with obscene relish.
This is one of those creature features where you barely see the beast for the first two thirds of the film, save for a quick snaggle of fur or fang rushing by in the shadows, and suspiciously looking like a bearskin rug cello taped to antlers and a hobby horse.
Hardy does get an eventual confrontation with the Minotaur late in the game and deep in the maze, providing a few schlocky moments that are worth the ride, but it's silly stuff most of the time, scraping the bottom of a barrel that does lower than the maze of the bull.
Totally tagging Tom in thee blog post though in hopes that he sees this and it brightens his day just a bit. Basically, "Minotaur" is a sub-standard "Stargate" episode.
Except that there's no cool Stargate, no SG-1 team with their witty dialogue, and really not much else except glue sniffing villains.
Watching this, I got the feeling that it was pretty derivative of "Stargate," especially in the look-and-feel area and set and prop design is the one area that didn't disappoint.
I will admit that I only watched about 1. That's what happens when I don't care about any of the characters, or the boring SFX, or even the paint huffing.
That may explain this whole debacle. Honestly, this movie fails on almost every level that there is in the movie making process. While the basic premise is not entirely bad, just about everything from script to screen is junk.
Just junk. I want to especially single out the script because it is SO BAD I can't believe anyone seriously considered it for production. Total paint-by-numbers writing, and here those numbers don't exceed three.
And the other dialogue It makes me cry when I see movies like this, because I take it as further proof against the existence of a kind and loving God.
What's wrong with these people? These movie makers, they think they can be creative and change myth and classic cartoons to suit their "vision".
Where there vision is blurry and need glasses. If you want to be creative, then write something new, you don't go around messing with classic Greek stories.
The minotaur is part man and part bull. Which mean he walks on two feet and has hands. What happened to his eyes?
There was a flashback when the minotaur was born and he had eyes. Just because something or someone goes blind from decades in total darkness doesn't mean his eyes fall out and where is his lips?
Is this Minotaur alive or some kind of Zombull? The acting and story works, but the whole minotaur thing truly destroys the experience for me.
One, fur on flesh, two walks up right and three has lips and eyes. The changes totally ruin this movie and I feel anyone who knows the slightest bit of Greek myth will feel the same, it's quite obvious the makers knew nothing of Greek Myth or of Minotaurs.
This movie is absolutely not enjoyable. Idiot that I was, I actually believed it. They probably hired one of the Orc extra's from LOTR to be able to put that on the cover or something.
The movie starts out promising enough, some sort of mythological mumbo-jumbo story about an evil empire that worships the Minotaur.
What's this? Full frontal nudity already? They don't waste time, do they. And the the movie starts.
Very slowly. We meet some stupid kids who are on their way to be sacrificed. Some guy, high on drugs, uses his magic skull to get the women high.
They proceed to tongue kiss his sister, and each other, passionately. What exactly was the point of that? Yes, exactly, to give the viewer a boner.
Almost immediately after that, the sister seduces our hero and gets him into bed. And then I turned off the DVD-player and went on to do something else.
This movie is boring, uses cheap tactics to try and keep the viewers attention They butcher the mythology of the Minotaur story to make this Do not watch this film unless you are drunk, horny pun intended or enjoy watching bad movies.
I expected a solid B-flick and I ended up having more than desired. I didn't care much for the atmosphere or technical aspects of the movie because the plot was really interesting and fast paced.
Please give this movie a try if you enjoy mythological related movies with monsters, princesses, and solid action sequences. Recommended for b-movie lovers.
Minotaur - the word itself explains most of the entire movie. As it happened, my girlfriend bought the DVD-release at a local rental-store used DVD , and thought it would be a good one.
The introduction and start of the movie makes it feel like at least a partly good one, though during its continuation, it clearly shines through as what it really is: A piece of utter wasted time and money.
Do not buy or watch this movie, it's so bad you sit there thinking if you should have done the dishes or mopped the floor instead - as that would really give more excitement than this flop.
To sum it up: if one could give a movie a dice-throw instead of the rating, I would not even have thrown the dice.
Let me start out by saying that a I like the SciFi channel, and fantasy and scifi in general those reading my other reviews might conclude that I only like French and Japanese films, and that is not the case and b I do not have any bias against TV movies.
What I do have a bias against is flimsy and witless hack job rearrangements of classics--including classic myth. There is a point of view that every possible genre of literature was invented by the Greeks and we have just been ringing changes ever since; so there in nothing wrong with re-imagining the classics--Jean Cocteau's films, "Clueless" on Jane Austen, John Gardner's "Grendell", Kurosawa's "Ran" and "Throne of Blood", much of Roger Corman's work,and numerous others.
But in this case, bad dialogue, bad acting this film makes, say, "Conan the Barbarian" look like the Royal Shakespeare Company and a plot that, charitably, has little to do with the original and everything to do with being a framework for skimpy clothing and a bucket or two of gore, matched with an excessive enthusiasm for point of view camera work, all combine to make this a heap of as a good friend of mine says stinking poo.
Don't waste your time and effort on this. Guys--recognize a stinker when you see one. His father, Cyrnan, Rutger Hauer the village elder, doesn't approve and demands that he keep out of it when they arrive.
He manages to get captured anyway, and his taken to the palace of the king, Deucalion, Tony Todd who throws them into a pit where their God, the Minotaur, awaits.
As Theo reveals that he has come to kill the Minotaur instead of their other reasons, he sets out to stop the bull. By keeping the film set during the time of the original myth about the Minotaur, it avoids the pitfall of many of the other ones they've done by using the original story and it's scares as the basis for this one.
Most of the fear in that one was attributed to the labyrinth, and the danger of not knowing which person was next to go.
Here, it works that way as well, but also for a just as exciting reason. The early scenes in the Minotaur lair are the film's creepiest moments, with the dead air, crazily designed maze, and a general sense of unease that they aren't that safe.
It's the perfect setting for this kind of film that is pretty straight forward with the myth of the creature, and it doesn't take too many liberties.
The creature looks half-way decent, a step up from the usual work they've done before. The hell-spawned bull look works for the film, giving the Minotaur a more thrilling look and design that a lot of people wouldn't have considered.
There is some impressive kills as well, included the one that gets the biggest jump, where a character is giving a speech and the bull's horn impales them through the mouth.
Several are gored upon it's horns or mauled savagely, leading to some impressive set-pieces. The Bad News: The main thing I want to gripe about is that the great Tony Todd, who does have a great role here, isn't given that much to do.
He basically just stands around, spouting pseudo-poetic lines while trying to be menacing, and it just doesn't work come off that great from the actor.
His role is important, but it shouldn't have been him in it, as we expect so much more from the man. Other than that, there isn't much I want to complain about here, as this is one of the better ones from the Sci-Fi Channel.
The Final Verdict: This is one of the Sci-Fi Channel's better films, as it tries a couple of new tricks in their usual repertoire and come out with an average film among their other credits.
All the Sci-Fi fans will want to check it out, but fans of Tony will probably think twice, as he has been miscast in this one.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Nudity and hints of incest. The legend of the Minotaur originated in antiquity when first related by the great storyteller Homer.
Now in modern times several movies have been created and I've seen five. From among them all, this is the very best.
The tale is retold here and it tells of a peoples who lined the Mediterranean and fell under the tyrannical power of King Minos, who was cursed When he offended the Gods and who in return was punished by them.
He had asked for a son, but was instead given one who fed on Human flesh. Each year, the king sent his warships throughout the land and forced his vassals to give him tribute in the form of young boys and young girls to be fed to his son the Minotaur.
However, Theseus, the half-son of Zues volunteered to be among the victims and offers himself to the group to be sacrificed. Unlike others stories where the King's daughter fell in love with the heroic youth, this version is flagrantly dark and there is much violence, blood and gore to satisfy action oriented audiences.
The film is more violent than others, but it's necessary to meet the requirements of advance theater goers. The star of this film is handsome, Tom Hardy who plays Theo or Thesus.
Tony Todd is Deucalion the tyrant king who plays it to the hilt. There is a great deal of violence as I said, but it goes hand in hand with fiery, dark caverns, the amazing Minotaur and especially the explosive finally.
Take it from me, this version will become a Classic and thus I recommend it enthusiastically to one and all. Perverse, the movie was perverse with the strange "exotic" nasty clothes they wore, the lesbian kiss?
In ancient Greece? Incorrect: Wikipedia quote: "at nine-year intervals, seven Athenian boys and seven Athenian girls were to be sent to Crete to be devoured by the Minotaur" The movie states 8 "youngsters" every third year.
How come the village has been raided 5 times already, and the movie states: northern territory, foolish plot! Marriage between sister and brother is a ancient Egyptian tradition.
Sub Saharan African actors as Minoans? How stupid can you be? Whats next? Far East Asian Vikings? North American natives as Samurais?
Eskimos acting Zulu warriors? Caucasians in Apocalypto 2? And what is that creature supposed to be a minotaur? A gigantic rat with horns and hooves?
Just looks stupid. Stupid: All the running around the maze screaming each others names and the monster actually being able to sneak up to them with all its noisy breathing and running.
Sniffing "gas" out of a goat skull, some kind of joke? What kind of helmets do they have? The contest between Theseus and the Minotaur was frequently represented in Greek art.
A Knossian didrachm exhibits on one side the labyrinth, on the other the Minotaur surrounded by a semicircle of small balls, probably intended for stars; one of the monster's names was Asterion "star".
While the ruins of Minos' palace at Knossos were discovered, the labyrinth never was. The multiplicity of rooms, staircases and corridors in the palace has led some archaeologists to suggest that the palace itself was the source of the labyrinth myth, an idea that is now generally discredited.
Some modern mythologists regard the Minotaur as a solar personification and a Minoan adaptation of the Baal - Moloch of the Phoenicians.
The slaying of the Minotaur by Theseus in that case indicates the breaking of Athenian tributary relations with Minoan Crete. According to A.
Cook , Minos and Minotaur were different forms of the same personage, representing the sun-god of the Cretans, who depicted the sun as a bull.
He and J. Pottier, who does not dispute the historical personality of Minos, in view of the story of Phalaris , considers it probable that in Crete where a bull cult may have existed by the side of that of the labrys victims were tortured by being shut up in the belly of a red-hot brazen bull.
The story of Talos , the Cretan man of brass , who heated himself red-hot and clasped strangers in his embrace as soon as they landed on the island, is probably of similar origin.
A historical explanation of the myth refers to the time when Crete was the main political and cultural potency in the Aegean Sea.
As the fledgling Athens and probably other continental Greek cities was under tribute to Crete, it can be assumed that such tribute included young men and women for sacrifice.
This ceremony was performed by a priest disguised with a bull head or mask, thus explaining the imagery of the Minotaur. Once continental Greece was free from Crete's dominance, the myth of the Minotaur worked to distance the forming religious consciousness of the Hellene poleis from Minoan beliefs.
A scientific interpretation also exists. Citing early descriptions of the minotaur by Callimachus as being entirely focused on the "cruel bellowing" it made from its underground labyrinth and the extensive tectonic activity in the region, science journalist Matt Kaplan has theorised that the myth may well stem from geology.
Dante and Virgil encounter the beast first among the "men of blood": those damned for their violent natures.
Some commentators believe that Dante, in a reversal of classical tradition, bestowed the beast with a man's head upon a bull's body,  though this representation had already appeared in the Middle Ages.
In these lines, Virgil taunts the Minotaur in order to distract him, and reminds the Minotaur that he was killed by Theseus the Duke of Athens with the help of the monster's half-sister Ariadne.
The Minotaur is the first infernal guardian whom Virgil and Dante encounter within the walls of Dis. Giovanni Boccaccio writes of the Minotaur in his literary commentary of the Commedia: "When he had grown up and become a most ferocious animal, and of incredible strength, they tell that Minos had him shut up in a prison called the labyrinth, and that he had sent to him there all those whom he wanted to die a cruel death".
Virgil and Dante then pass quickly by to the centaurs Nessus, Chiron, Pholus, and Nessus who guard the Flegetonte "river of blood" , to continue through the seventh Circle.
