Millions of years ago when humans and gods  didn’t exist in the universe, there lived a   supernatural entity called the Titans. They  were the most powerful and divine creatures   but their reign was ended by their own sons;  Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. The oldest brother   Zeus was the smartest of the lot. He convinced his  brother Hades to create a beast with his powers;   a beast so strong and evil that it could  defeat their parents. From Hades’s flesh, the   unspeakable horror of Kraken was born who ended  the Titans and gave immense power to the brothers. During the distribution of their parents’  powers, Zeus gets to be the god of the heavens,   and Poseidon gets to be the god of the sea, but  Hades is tricked by Zeus into being the bearer   of the trauma and sadness of the underworld.  Next, Zeus creates humans whose prayers keep   him and other gods immortal. At the same time,  Hades uses humans’ fear to gain powers. However,   as time passes, war and suffering multiply  in the world that Zeus thought was perfect.   People start questioning why their father would  put them through such a hell and their trust in   god starts to fade, hinting towards a terrifying  thought of a battle between gods and the mortals. The scene changes to a poor fishing man  sailing through a dangerous sea storm.   Far away in the dead of the sea,  he sees a coffin-like box floating   towards him. He somehow fishes it into  his boat and comes across a horrifying   sight. Inside the coffin is the corpse  of a mother holding her newborn baby,   who is fortunately still alive. The fisherman  takes the baby boy into his arms and swears   to protect and feed him. Somewhere nearby, a  mysterious woman is watching them intensely. When the kid grows up to be a teen, the  fisherman’s wife gets pregnant. While the   boy is afraid his father will forget him  after holding his own blood in his arms,   he is assured that their bond is stronger  than any relation by blood. Time passes and   the kid one day becomes a brave fisherman named  Perseus. He has a little sister who he loves more   than anything in the world and a loving family  of four. By now, human rebellion against the   gods has multiplied. Several nations have burned  sacred statues, led forces to Olympus, and stopped   praying altogether, all of which have posed  a great threat to the lives of the immortals. One afternoon, Perseus with his family is on  his boat traveling a long way to fish. However,   even after hours of trying, their nets come back  empty. His father blames the gods for punishing   them with hunger and starvation while his mother  claims that at least they are blessed with life.   Perseus stands neutral to the conversation as his  only concern is his starving family. Suddenly,   they see a massive statue of Zeus being attacked  by some men. They are soldiers of the country   named Argos whose king has ordered them to  knock down the statue. After the massive art   of concrete falls, there is a moment of silence  before something starts moving in the water. All of a sudden, bat-like humanoids soar up to  the sky and kill the soldiers one after another.   Perseus and his family watch in horror, too afraid  to move and grab the birds’ attention. When the   killings stop, the birds merge into one and  transform into Hades, the god of the underworld   himself. There to punish the foolish who dared  to disrespect his brother, Hades’s eyes land   upon the boat Perseus is in. He pushes it with a  slight force sending the entire family into the   sea. Perseus tries his best to get his loved ones  out but in the end, he is the only survivor left. In the following scene, a rescue team from  Argos arrives and brings Perseus to the   palace. Although he was the only surviving  one from the fight, the king sees it as a   victory and orders his men to celebrate.  The queen, going along with her husband,   calls herself the god and insults Zeus with  her harsh judgment. Before she knows it,   the terrifying Hades appears in front of them  and sucks the beauty and youth out of her.   Perseus tries to foolishly attack him, angered  about his family’s death but a woman stops him. Since human fear feeds Hades’ power, he  doesn’t want to simply kill everyone in   the palace. Instead, he gives them a choice; they  offer their beautiful princess as a sacrifice to   him or the unspeakable horror of Kraken will  be freed upon Argos. After announcing that   the king has the next ten days to decide,  Hades turns towards Perseus. He freezes   for a second and calls him the  son of Zeus before disappearing. Perseus doesn’t know what to make of his words but  everyone else figures out that he is a demigod;   the offspring of a god and a human.  He is thrown in prison and tortured,   in hopes that he will find a way to save the  city. The kind-hearted princess tries to stop   the soldiers. She is happily ready to sacrifice  her life if it means that her people will get   to live but the king doesn’t want that. In the  next scene, a woman is allowed to meet Perseus   in prison. She is the same mysterious woman who  was around when the fisherman found Perseus and   the same one who stopped him from attacking  Hades earlier. She introduces herself as Io,   a mortal who once refused the advancement  of a god and was cursed to never age or die.   It hardly seems like a curse but Io explains  that she had to watch all her loved ones die   and live on without them. Since she has  been alive for almost a thousand years,   she knows everything about Perseus, his mother,  and the story of how they ended up in the sea. Several years ago, the rebellion king of a country  led a large army toward Olympus, angering the   gods. Zeus, who loved humans as his own, didn’t  want to kill them so he thought of making an   example of the king instead. Disguised as the  king, Zeus went to the queen and made love to her.   When the king returned from the battle, he found  his wife impregnated by his worst enemy. Burning   with rage, he put her into a coffin and threw her  into the ocean where she gave birth to Perseus. Perseus finally has answers to  how his life came to be and now,   his only goal is to kill Hades for revenge.  Io explains to him that if he kills Kraken,   Hades will be at his weakest which is  his best chance to kill him. And so,   Perseus joins the Argosian soldiers on  their journey to find and kill the Kraken. Time passes quickly and on the  fourth day of their journey,   the chief in command asks Perseus if he  knows how to use a sword. He is given a   little demonstration before being attacked out  of the blue. Perseus falls at first but quickly   catches up and surprises everyone. Given  his natural born talent in sword fighting,   he is told that he indeed has the flesh of a god.  Then, we are introduced to Perseus’s stepfather,   the king who is now living as a peasant in  a dark cave. Hades approaches the man and   reveals that he is working in Zeus's favor to  gain his trust and strike him at his lowest.   Since the former king also wants Zeus dead, he is  ready to do anything to make Hades happy. Hence,   the god of the underworld turns him into  a demon and sends him to kill Perseus. Somewhere else, as the soldiers take shelter for  the day, Perseus wanders off into the jungle and   finds a sword and a bunch of flying horses. They  were sent to him by his father Zeus who wants his   son to have a fair chance at winning. However,  Perseus refuses both the sword and the pure black   horse sent for him. Suddenly, he hears a soldier  cry for help and discovers the demon sent by Hades   is here to kill everyone. He leaps at Perseus with  a deadly strike but the hero is fast to defend   himself. The soldiers join him and overpower the  demon, cutting off his left hand and urging him to   flee. They quickly follow him behind but have to  split into two groups to look for him. The demon   disappears but instead, the soldiers are attacked  by a giant scorpion living under the sand. A fierce battle ensues, ending the lives of  many soldiers one after another. At one point,   Perseus is almost stung but is saved at the right  time by Io. Just when the scorpion dies and they   think they have won, they are surrounded by many  more ever bigger scorpions. The soldiers get ready   to fight again and are surprised when the giant  creatures stop in their tracks. One of them points   towards a figure standing nearby who happens to  be Djinn. They are the creatures who were once   humans but are now charcoal placed in a human  form and bonded with black magic. The commander   doesn’t trust them but he agrees to receive  help for the night. Suddenly, Perseus’s falls   to the ground groaning because of his injured  arm which has been infected by Hades’ venom. In his tent at night, the leader of the  Djinns uses black magic to heal the arm.   The soldiers misjudge him which causes a small  brawl but the Djinn explains that his kind has   been waiting for ages to see gods fail and  Perseus is their only chance. In the morning   they ride the scorpions through the desert  and reach the garden of Stygia by evening.   Perseus finds out this is the place where  the Kraken defeated the Titans. They go   deeper into the deserted place to meet the  Stygian witches who know the secret to kill   Kraken. Io warns Perseus to be careful and  ask the witches only what he needs to know. They go into a cave where they see three  gruesome witches, one of them carrying   an eyeball that helps them all see. The smell of  fresh human blood makes them attack the soldiers   but Perseus gets ahold of their eyeball and uses  it as leverage to free his mates. The witches then   finally reveal that the only way to kill Kraken is  through the demoness Medusa. Long ago, the god of   the sea Poseidon liked a beautiful Medusa and took  advantage of her. She prayed to the goddess Athena   for help but instead, the goddess was repulsed by  her. Hence, Medusa was cursed to never be seen by   any living creature; anyone who gets a look at her  face will turn into stone, including Kraken. Not   long after, the group sets off to the underworld  to look for the prison Mesuda is in. On their way,   Perseus runs into his father Zeus who offers  him to come to heaven and live a happy life.   Perseus refuses the offer but accepts a gold  coin Zeus gives him as a departing gift. In the following scene, the group is in front  of the sea that leads them to the underworld.   The Djinn bribes the ferryman using Perseus’s  coin and as a result, they are taken right to   Medusa’s prison. Io has to stay outside because  only men are allowed inside the prison but she   warns them that no man has ever made it out. As  the group enters the prison, they immediately hear   a feminine chuckle. Perseus tells everyone to keep  their eyes down and guard up. Suddenly, arrows   begin flying their way, hitting the commander on  his chest and before they know it, they are being   attacked by the demoness. Perseus almost falls  into a pit of fire but is able to save Djinn and   himself at the right time. As they are looking for  the rest of the group, Medusa troubles two of the   young soldiers. Both of them mistakenly take a  glance at her face which costs them their lives. Next, she catches Djinn and tries turning him  into stone but because of his black magic,   he is able to attack her a last time  before dying. The commander takes this   opportunity to stab her tail before he  is also turned into a stone. Finally,   taking advantage of her weakened state,  Perseus beheads her with his sword. An anxious Io sees Perseus come out with the  bag of Medus’s head and is ecstatic. But her   happiness doesn’t last long because she is  stabbed to death seconds later by Perseus’s   stepfather. Before dying, Io gives Perseus the  sword he was gifted by Zeus. He finally uses it   to defeat the demon and accepts the flying horse  as well. At the same time in Olympus, Hades comes   to Zeus to ask for permission to unleash Kraken.  Hoping that his children will pray to him again,   Zeus allows Hades to do as he pleases. Back in  Argos, the people have formed a cult to sacrifice   the princess so the Kraken takes her instead of  them. The massive beast is released and begins   shaking the city of Argos. Zeus hurriedly asks  his brother to stop the chaos because he thought   the prayers would help him but his children are  instead scared. Hades laughs at his brother,   claiming that he has been a fool and  that the people’s fear is fueling him. Subsequently, the princess is hung by  a bridge as a sacrifice but the beast   doesn’t just take her as the people  imagined. The humanoid bats are set   free to kill anyone they please. The Kraken  emerges from the sea and is about to attack   the princess when Perseus arrives and  climbs up the bridge with Medusa’s head. The Massive beast turns to stone and with it,  Medusa and the princess also fall into the sea.   Before Perseus can do anything, Hades appears in  front of him in his weakest state. Perseus uses   his magical sword to strike at his uncle which  sends the god back to the underworld where he   is locked for eternity. Finally, Perseus  saves the princess and brings her to the   shore. She thanks him and promises to serve the  nation as a competent queen. In the last scene,   Zeus comes to meet his son, allowing him the  choice to remain a human for the rest of his   life. The movie ends as he gives his son a  special gift by bringing Io back to life.
