Rating:

Jason and the Argonauts (1963) is a fantasy adventure directed by Don Chaffey, in collaboration with the cinema's greatest master of stop-motion animation, Ray Harryhausen. Closely following Greek mythology, it tells of a crew of heroes, led by Jason, who, aboard the ship Argo, travel to the ends of the earth to find the Golden Fleece. This isn't easy, when they're constantly under attack from Harpies, a statue which comes to life, clashing rocks, the Hydra, and an army of skeletons - not to mention a traitor in their midst and the army of the King of Colchis, who's not about to give up the fabled fleece without a fight. Considered by Ray Harryhausen himself as his best film, Jason and the Argonauts is an impressive foray into an ancient world of fantasy and magic, with stunning music and photography, classic seuqnces and extraordinary special effects.
