The straight story of Jason's exploits, told with magic and imagination and a minimum of studio trickery, might have been delightful. This version is more bull than Bulfinch.
New York Times:
This absurd, unwieldy adventure -- if that's the word -- is no worse, but certainly no better, than most of its kind.
Special-effects buffs generally cite this 1963 effort by Ray Harryhausen as the master's masterpiece, and his work does a great deal to enliven the tired plot and vacuous stars.
Great fun, as these things go, with a Bernard Herrmann score to boot.
The $3 million film has a workable scenario and has been directed resourcefully and spiritedly by Don Chaffey, under whose leadership a colorful cast performs with zeal.
