Clash of the Titans

Louis Leterrier's (The Incredible Hulk) remake of the 1981 film about the hero Perseus (Worthington), born of a god but raised as a man, helpless to save his family from Hades (Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Neeson) and unleash hell on Earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds, battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, including Medusa and the Kraken.

Filming took place in Wales and the Canary Islands, with aerial photography in Iceland and Ethiopia.

This "Titans" reboot merely demonstrates that building a more elaborate mousetrap doesn't necessarily produce a more entertaining one.

First cab off the ranks in the blockbuster stakes is this remake of the 1981 classic Clash of the Titans - this time, it stars Avatar's Sam Worthington.

Big sets, wall-to-wall mayhem and hi-tech pixelry only go so far in a movie sure to leave anyone with fond memories of the original feeling shortchanged. It’s proof, too, that 3D can’t simply be tacked on as an afterthought.

Australian actor Sam Worthington’s having quite a ride. He’s been a futuristic Terminator, an Avatar on Pandora and now he’s a demigod on the warpath.

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

Poorly written nonsense, but lovers of beefcake action will be happy enough with the heroes gymnastically vaulting monsters and slicing and dicing their way around the ancient world. An extra star for Ralph Fiennes, who is a god.

Whether in two or three dimensions - this is just garbage Not since TRANSFORMERS 3D have I endured such an unrelenting, tedious, brain-numbing, sickening headache of a mess of a movie. Just one word: "Why..." No, make that two: "bother?" If this is a "popcorn movie" then I must be allergic to popcorn - cos as a movie lover I...

Typical low-rent sword and sandal stuff: Blokes in short skirts with bulging thighs? Check. Gorgeous women in peril? Check. Ludicrous CGI monsters? Check. Decent plot? Dang! Medusa got to it first - turned to stone, along with the acting. Very much by-the-numbers stuff with glaring plot holes - glad I didn't spend the extra to see it in 3D!

Forgot to mention, this film makes '300' look like a 5-star oscar winning epic. Seriously! 300 was far more memorable, as it actually built suspense and had a decent climax.

Utter nonsense retelling of a great mythological adventure. Seriously, who was responsible for lines spoken in this film? Garbage in = garbage out, the cast did the best they could with it, I guess. Save your money on this one folks, not even 3D can save it... People were laughing even when they weren't planned to, such cheesy dialogue, kinda like the 'you...

Just saw it this afternoon, & wanted to see it, coz I can remember seing the original (way back in 1981) which was pretty groundbraking (back then - stop motion, etc) This update is a pretty good retelling of the story! Witgh the special effect's, and all the monster's in it, pretty impressive! A pretty good retelling, in all! Fairly happy with it! The...
