Is God of War a movie script ripoff?

BoingBoing writes: “In a complaint filed in California’s U.S. District Court, writer Jonathan Bissoon-Dath and artist Jennifer Barrette-Herzon claim that Sony’s God of War swipes work from screenplays, synopses and a map submitted to the company in 2002.

The legal issue will be decided by deep pockets and, conceivably, a jury. The moral issue is simpler to determine. Is there anything truly original in Bissoon-Dath’s take on an otherwise well-trodden Olympic scenario, or are both properties derivative of other sources? Is it all just so much Clash of the Titans with glowy swords?”
