Classical Mythical Stories, Poorly Done

This is a story based on Greek mythology. It is not very interesting or well filmed Concerning appropriateness for children, there is considerable violence (not gruesome or explicit), and considerable sexual material concerning what god or king is bedding what woman. Bedroom scenes with sexual activity are shown, although the participants are covered and there is no nudity.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
