Jason and the Agnostics: Super Cut Featured
FanFix February 01, 2023 1077
I consider The Scribbling Man's previous edit of this film, the B+ Movie Cut, to be the definitive version of this Harryhausen classic. So this newer attempt is not something that will change my mind since I miss quite a bit of what was cut from the narrative, namely the living figurehead and Hera's five instances of help, but still, this was fun. Truncated as it may be, it now has acquired the flavor of a matinee showing, maybe as part of a double feature with some other sword and sandal flick. The brisk pacing does help to sell that sensation: this one does indeed move fast, and before you realize it, it's over. Grab your popcorn and enjoy the ride, just don't expect much help from the gods this time around!
