      This is another one of those creepy animal movies, this time being based on ancient Greek mythology. If you’re familiar at all with mythology, then you should know that Cerberus is the three-headed dog that belongs to Hades, God of the Underworld (land of the dead, afterlife). His dog guards the exit to make certain that dead souls don’t escape into the land of the living.

      All in all, I would say this is your average lower-budget horror movie. The plot is

      decent and the acting is OK, but the dog - the dog doesn’t look very real. In several scenes where you see it walking, something just didn’t look right. I can’t exactly say what it is, but its movement was off somehow. Perhaps its movement was more akin to a lion. Nor did it ever actually scare me and I’m not very crazy about big dogs. The dog never seemed to stay on screen for a long period of time, although you did see quite a bit of it in various short scenes.

      This picture is a bit bloody, of course. It’s rated R. So that’s something you need to consider. It shows limbs being chopped off by a sword, including a head, and Cerberus chewing on people. There’s also a scene with a man missing both of his legs and possessing only bloody stumps after being chewed. Still, it’s not all that graphic. They don’t show detailed close-ups or anything. There’s lots of ...

      fighting, shooting and a few car chases.

      The plot is about a woman who works at a New York museum and gets involved in a complicated mess. Someone stole Attila the Hun’s breastplate and the crooks kidnapped the woman’s brother. So she goes off to Romania to rescue him and ends up crawling around in old Roman ruins under a castle to find Attila’s tomb. The Sword of Mars (Ares God of War) is supposed to be in the tomb and Cerberus is

      guarding it. So yes, anyone that steals the sword wakes up the dog.

      I’m not exactly sure if the plot makes sense. Why is Cerberus guarding Ares’ sword? He’s the guardian of the Underworld and belongs to Hades. The movie never exactly explained this bit.

      I guess the theme or moral in this movie is that you shouldn’t steal or Cerberus may come and bite you!

      If you really enjoy these sorts of movies, then try watching it. Otherwise you may want to pass.
