Exclusive Cool Video: Top 10 Mythological Movie Moments!

07.15.2014

With Dwayne Johnson's HERCULES heading into theaters next week, we thought it was a good time to reflect on some of the cooler mythological movie moments that have graced the big screen since they started translating everything from Homer's The Iliad to Norse Mythology (as well as some actual history, albeit heavily sensationalized). The sword-and-sandal epics have long been a tradition in Hollywood and we've seen many a cool moment from the long list of entries, most of them involving some particularly brutal swordplay, bickering gods, otherworldly creatures, and a hero's journey that is often layered in tragedy.

In many ways the stories and tales from the various mythological stories out there serve as a precursor to the superhero genre, which often mimics the attributes of the great heroes, dastardly villains, and strange creatures that inhabit those worlds. There are TONS of moments to choose from and very hard to narrow down to just ten, so feel free to let us know which moments YOU feel deserve a spot on the top 10. Enjoy!

It's cool if you don't agree, but perhaps you could list your own Top 10 instead of tearing this one down because you don't agree with one selection?

This list is fairly awful. Cecil B. DeMille is spinning in his grave, surrounded by a cast of thousands, also spinning.

This is quite possibly THE WORST

List ive seen. 300,Immortals,Troy etc are all good, there are some embarassingly BAD choices here. Including stuff thats not really "mythological"
