Clash of the Titans

Jays Rating:
Actors: /

It would appear that seeing a remake of every genre of film is unavoidable and this time we go back to 1981 to see the original movie about Greek mythology titled, Clash of the Titans. When the people on earth begin disrespecting their gods, Perseus (Sam Worthington) who is the mortal son of the king of the gods, Zeus (Liam Neeson )is asked to help keep peace. Of course it doesn’t help when Hades (Ralph Fiennes) the god of the underworld is having a feud with his brother Zeus and has demanded a virgin sacrifice from the city of Argos ”The cradle of Civilization.” When Perseus finds out Princess Andromeda (Alexia Daealos) is to be the one who is sacrificed he jumps on his winged horse Pegasus and flies into action. Perseus creates an army to fight a giant scorpion and then he cuts the head off Medusa (Natalia Vodianova) whose hair is made of snakes and when her face is seen it will turn any living being into stone. (That reminds me of some of my old girl friends but since I’m blind I’m safe now) All of this leads up to Perseus fighting the monster called the Kraken, saving the life of Andromeda and the people of Argos. Don’t look for any character development in this film. The story is just the vehicle to move it from one action scene to the next. There is just something missing in this movie and it’s not the little metal owl from the original film in 1981 that now has a cameo. I think with a better script this could have been much easier to watch. Also it would have helped (everyone except me) if they would have decided to add the 3D in pre-production instead of post-production. This may have been an impressive movie if it was made 30 years ago. (That’s right it was made 30 years ago and I enjoyed it then so I’m not sure why the remake) This is one of those films if you go and try to not look for the flaws you will have fun and I will give it a C+ rating.

This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
