When he saves Pelias from drowning, but does not recognize him as the man who had earlier killed his father, Pelias tells Jason to travel to Colchis to find the Golden Fleece. Jason follows his advice and assembles a sailing crew of the finest men in Greece, including Hercules. They are under the protection of Hera, queen of the gods. Their voyage is replete with battles against harpies, a giant bronze Talos, a hydra, and an animated skeleton army, all brought to life by the special effects wizardry of Ray Harryhausen.
Plot: Jason, a fearless sailor and explorer, returns to his home land of Thessaly after a long voyage to claim his rightful throne. He learns, however, that he must first find the magical Golden Fleece. To do so, he must embark on an epic quest fraught with fantastic monsters and terrible perils.

Classic Film With Outstanding Special Effects
It’s really rather hard to believe that this picture received mediocre reviews when it first came out.It appears that most now regard it as a classic,and in certain circles,it has achieved cult status.True,Armstrong’s Jason is a rather bland character,and could use some foibles and quirks to become more realistic and human,but this could be lodged against the writers.Kovacks as Medea certainly does look marvelous,but shows none of the inner torment of the character of classic mythology.(On the other hand,this movie was made for kids,and we don’t need to introduce them to Eurypides’ virago just yet.)An outstanding cast of well-trained British actors provides sterling support.Naismith personifies loyalty and good-natured common sense;Troughton is remarkable as a tortured sinner who is brave and hasn’t lost his sense of humor;Green is probably the most realistic Hercules ever developed;And Gwilliam is the personification of outraged hospitality and necromantic malevolence.Wilmer has a good time doing a Rathbonesque villain.The special effects are first rate,given the state of the art at the time,and Blackman and MacGinnis develop wonderful portraits of the deities.They have a genuine relationship,and appear to be a man and wife.The plot has more depth than most films of this genre,and is lots of fun,besides.
Childhood fav. This movie has the power to transport the viewers into the mythical world.
I first saw this on a vhs with my dad when i was only 7 years old. I got terrified seeing the giant Talos. The incredible images stayed with me for years until I saw the movie again when I was 13. Saw many times after that. Bought a vhs in the 80s. Bought a vcd in late 90s. Revisited this recently with my kids. A very nostalgic n one of the finest 60s mythically themed fantasy film. The movie has a towering bronze giant named Talos, winged Harpies, a seven headed hydra n armed skeleton warriors. The skeleton warriors r repeated in this film. They r first introduced in The 7th Voyage of Sindbad. The musical score n cinematography is top notch. The last scene on the mountain top is breathtaking. The island of Talos is also splendid but the main attraction of the film is the special effects work of Ray Harryhausen. Special thanx to the producer Charles H. Schneer who was famous for his collaborations with Ray Harryhausen. Together, they created some of the best-loved fantasy and science fiction films to grace the silver screen. Ray Harryhausen n Charles H. Schneer were both a gift to mankind, specially kids. Kudos to the director Don Chaffey for giving us this n One Million Years BC.
Edited my review aft revisiting this movie again but this time with my 7 year old nephew during the pandemic lockdown (July 2020). He loved the film n enjoyed the Talos but pointed out two silly mistakes. During the hydra scene it is shown night time but later when Jason is shown running away, it is bright sunlight. Also when Jason jumps in the ocean, the skeletons cud have easily prevented Jason from boarding the ship or the skeletons cud have easily boarded the ship themselves.
