Main Plot Points:
- Mythica A Quest for Heroes – Stuck in a life of indentured servitude, Marek dreams of becoming a wizard. When she meets a beautiful priestess, Teela, in need of help, Marek escapes her master and puts together a team of adventurers – including Thane the Warrior and Deagen the Thief – and embarks on an epic quest to free Teela’s sister from a vicious ogre.
- Mythica The Darkspore – When a powerful relic is stolen, Marek and her friends face a sinister new enemy: Kishkumen, a foreign mystic bent on reclaiming the Darkspore for his master Szorlok. Armed with twin maps, Marek and her team race Kishkumen and his horde through creature-infested lands, to a long abandoned underground city – all the while pursued by bounty hunters intent on returning Marek to slavery…A nonstop adventure that continues the Mythica epic!
What We Thought:
- I was not familiar with the Mythica series at all before watching Mythica: A Quest for Heroes and its sequel Mythica: The Darkspore.
- They are the first two films in a 5 part series and I can see genre fans liking them. They are your classic action/adventure, epic films that follow a group on a mission. Think The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings, but with a much lower production budget.
- The only name I recognized in the series is Kevin Sorbo. Unfortunately he’s barely in them. I think he’s in the first film for maybe ten minutes. If you are watching these expecting him to be like Hercules and the lead actor, you’ll be disappointed.
- The series has what you expect in terms of creatures. There are Orcs and elves and people with magic. If you don’t mind lower production value and just like epic storylines, you should like it.
- Even with a lower production budget, I thought the set design and costuming was really good. The characters look their parts without feeling out of place or period wrong. Some of the special effects aren’t that great, but the overall look is solid.
- Mythica: The Quest for Heroes and Mythica: The Darkspore have some decent action and a familiar storyline. It won’t blow you away, but I can see the Renaissance Faire/Fantasy Cosplayer types getting into these films. Some of the sword play and old fashioned weaponry is good, but again, don’t expect a huge blockbuster series.
