In Thrace, Arion is taken from his mother Demeter by the god Hades. In the Underworld, Arion is trained to be a warrior. His training is driven by revenge: Arion was told that his mother's blindness was caused by Zeus and Zeus' death will remove the curse. Finally, Arion and Geedo (a huge ape-like creature who had become Arion's friend and companion) left the Underworld to find Zeus. Seneca, a small thief, makes off with Arion's sword and this leads Arion to his first encounter with the forces of Zeus, commanded by his daughter Athena. Arion is captured but is later set free by Lesfeena, Athena's mute serving girl. As Arion rejoins Geedo and Seneca (and worries about Lesfeena), the forces of Zeus and Poseidon face each other in battle. In the background sits the scheming Hades, and the calm Apollon who seems to have plans of his own.

In mythology, Arion was the name of an immortal, divinely-bred horse. In the late 70s, early 80s there was a manga of the same name by Yasuhiko Yoshikazu. In 1986, Sunrise worked on an anime film based of of that manga. If this is actually starring an immortal horse, that could be amazing but I doubt it actually is. So, let's see what this actually takes from the Greek myths.


We open with our young and disappointingly human Arion running around when he spots a sketchy looking fellow. This is Hades. Hades has a conversation with Demeter and then promptly whisks Arion away to the read more

Hey, Remember "Clash of the Titans", that silly Sword-and-Sandals action adventure fantasy movie from the 80s? Y'know the one. On the surface it was about how Perseus was a badass hero, but underneath, it was about how the Gods of Olympus were a bunch of sociopathically spoiled douchebags?

Remember how they made a grim and mean-spirited remake where the angry anti-theist "Gods are Douchebags" message was right on the surface?

Now, Meet "Neo Heroic Fantasia Arion", a grim and mean-spirited Sword-and-Sandals action adventure fantasy movie from the 80s that is about how the Gods of Olympus were a bunch of sociopathically spoiled douchebags?

Sure, you'd expect Ares (the read more

Story: The plot is paced as lightning fast as possible in all of the wrong areas while spending obscene amounts of time for characters to yell bullshit at each other. The supposed revelations that happen constantly all feel like something is right around the corner to totally invalidate all of it which happens for basically every single piece of new information. The best part about this movie would be the take on mythology in worldbuilding which does use a fair amount of more subtle lines to give it greater depth. However, a few details totally break any logical cohesion to such a world and make read more

I still can't believe I have ever watched this.
I survived this only because I haven't seen this alone, if I would, I would probably ended up dead.

If you love bad protagonists, randomly flying and dying gods, sister complexes, stop it right there, this movie is for you!

Let's start with characters !

Arion - Our protagonist, definitelly not a horse. He is pretty strange, has kinks on EVERYTHING, even his sister ( he founds hot, that his beloved is his sister, loses interest when founding, she is not a sister, why the hell not ).. Anyway, in few seconds he can turn read more
