Greek mythology has been a fascinating subject for thousands of years. With tragic love stories between a mortal and an immortal forever kept apart and gruesome battles between the forces of good and evil, Greek mythology brims with drama, tension, spectacle and wonder. However, despite its impressive representation by playwrights and authors in literature, movies haven’t been able to quite understand the depth of Greek mythology. While several have been commercial successes, most haven’t been quite impressive in the eyes of the critics.
For this list, I have taken into account films about Greek Gods or Greek mythology. The films on this list have been critical and commercial successes. So, without further ado, here is the list of top Greek mythology movies ever made. You can also find some of these best Greek mythology movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
8. Hercules (2014)
With Dwayne Johnson dawning on the brawny Hercules, this action fantasy adventure film has to be an entertaining watch. Directed by Brett Ratner, the film is built upon the beefy performance by Johnson as the Greek hero and the remarkable action sequences. As chief film critic for Variety, Scott Foundas, wrote “It’s a grandly staged, solidly entertaining, old-fashioned adventure movie that does something no other Hercules movie has quite done before: It cuts the mythical son of Zeus down to human size.” and praised Johnson’s performance by saying “Hercules’s strongest asset is surely Johnson, who continues to foster one of the most affable, guileless screen personas in movies today.”
