The plot is soft, the action is anticipated and the end expected. But, generally, entertaining. Read More

Great Movie

on 6/8/2012

People really need to stop comparing this film to the original becuase you can't...it is a re-imagining of a classic movie with better special effects and a new more attractive hero character(Sam Worthington, Avatar). Sure this movie doesn't come up to par to the original but that doesn't mean it's a bad movie. The new designs I thought were out of this world and the story was equal if not better than the original. Plus Sam Worthington did a hell of a job as Perseus! Read More

Product Overview

In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, Perseus and his warriors will only survive if Perseus accepts his power as a god, defies fate and creates his own destiny.

Reviews
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "The outcome is told in CLASH OF THE TITANS with impressive technical mastery....The climax is classic..." 03/31/2010
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Featuring] Fiennes's hugely fun turn as a hunchbacked, raspy-voiced, bitter, twisted Hades who turns up in a fireball and a smoking cloak to wreak a spot of havoc..." 04/01/2010
Entertainment Weekly "The special effects, while mostly digital, have been intentionally crafted to conjure some of that old-school analog delight....It has the flavor of a certain pre-CGI innocence." -- Grade: B- 04/09/2010
Box Office 3 stars out of 5 - "This lively, entertaining remake of 1981's clunky adventure epic CLASH OF THE TITANS benefits from the forceful presence of Sam Worthington in the key role and is full of high flying action..." 04/01/2010
Hollywood Reporter "CLASH OF THE TITANS kicks into action with a battle between human warriors and giant scorpion....A popcorn movie that reaches back to the fantasy epics of old and forward into the digital future..." 03/28/2010

Review There are too many Greek gods for me to keep straight, since as a child I didn't have action figures as a learning tool. I was prepared to take notes during Clash of the Titans but only wrote down a single one: "Release the Kraken!" -- Conan O'Brien. I know I was intended to be terrified by the release of the Kraken, but all I could think of was O'Brien shouting "Release the bear!" and then some guy in a bear suit runs out and sits on the lap of a guest. In this case, the Kraken is the nuclear option for Zeus, who has been persuaded by Hades to put down a revolt by the upstart mortals of Argos...The mortals are fed up with the whims of the gods. It would be one thing if they stayed on Olympus and killed time leaning on pillars and addressing one another in thundering ultimatums. Now they meddle in the affairs of men. King Acrisius of Argos declares war, and enlists the aid of a demi-god who has been found at sea. This is Perseus (Sam Worthington), son of Zeus (Liam Neeson) and a human mother. He didn't ask to be a savior but would be happier as a simple fisherman. You know the type...Zeus, it should be explained, disguised himself as the husband of Perseus' mother and stole into her bedchamber to father the boy. So he is a rapist. Just sayin'. Perseus so loved his mother and adoptive father that he will never forgive Poseidon for drowning them and wants nothing to do with gods. Yet such is his destiny...The climax is classic, with the fair Andromeda hung by her wrists and suspended in a clinging white gown over a flaming pit at the edge of the sea. Meanwhile, Perseus flies to the rescue on the wings of the great flying horse Pegasus. The townspeople clamor for her death, but lose their enthusiasm after the Kraken rears up from the sea...I like this kind of stuff. I don't say it's good cinema, although I recognize the craftsmanship that went into it. I don't say it's good acting, when the men have so much facial hair they all look like Liam Neeson. I like the energy, the imagination, the silliness. I even like the one guy who doesn't have a beard. That's Perseus. From the first moment we see him as an adult until his last scene in the movie, he has the Standard Regulation Macho-Length Stubble on his chin. And in a city where all the men go to Jerry Garcia's barber, he has a burr cut on the short clipper setting.

Kyle Smith, New York Post A roaring old-school action adventure for kids, with as many mythical beasts as a year at Hogwarts and a healthy dose of smiting without the crazed bloodlust of 300.
Richard Corliss, Time Magazine ...[Clash] is a full-throttle action-adventure...
Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter A popcorn movie that reaches back to the fantasy epics of old and forward into the digital future, where the word "unimaginable" no longer exists.
