Moses, Voldemort and Godzilla Save Middle Earth

A remake of the 1981 film starring Laurence Olivier, Clash of the Titans is the tale of Perseus (Sam Worthington), demigod and son of Zeus who forges a battle with the humans to defeat Medusa, the mighty Kraken and a hoard of hellish beasts in order to save Argos (no, not that one) and the beautiful Princess Andromeda. Bored yet? I certainly was. I am not suggesting that this is the worst film of the year so far but it’s certainly the dullest.

Released in 3D, the effect of which is redundant, as it does not seem to be used to any great effect, the action sequences (surely the main draw for this movie) are lacklustre clumps of indistinguishable digital sequence. The script is as flat as Worthington’s acting. The only grace in the film is Irish Actor Liam Cunningham who manages a few chuckles through charm if not sheer desperation. Oh and Liam Neeson rocks a cool sparkly suit of armour.

The original  “Clash of the Titans” enjoys cult status is only for it Ray Harryhausen trademark stop-motion animation style. This century’s 3D, “mega-effects” offering won’t be sharing that title of cult, classic or epic and will most likely be gracing the bargain bins of your local rental outlet before the year is out.

  2. Lottie says:

    Nope – just a waste of time. I stayed till the end, gave it a every chance but it’s just boring.

    You should start working for Total Film – seems their review concurs with yours…

    Was going to check it out this weekend. Curiosity will get the better of me and will still probably waste my couple of euro on it! Think will give the 3D a miss though….

  5. Lottie says:

    @Olive – IN fairness the 3D in this one was fairly unobtrusive – hardly worth the work really. I watched a substantial portion without the glasses on.

  6. Keleher says:

    Was thinking of seeing it, will save the $ instead..

    Apparently they only decided to make it 3D after Avatar made so much money. They only spent 6 weeks doing the 3D conversion, I think Alice in Wonderland took 6 months so it’s not that much of a suprise that it’s not that good. The main reason they did it was so that they could charge more money for 3D tickets.
