Clash of the Titans

PhotobucketPhotobucketMythological fantasy has Perseus embarking on a quest to rescue the city of Argos from the evil god Hades who demands Princess Andromeda be sacrificed to the Kraken monster.  Got all that?  Pervasive digital effects overwhelm a cluttered and chaotic narrative. One of those noisy films that makes you long more for the more organic feel of Ray Harryhausen’s stop motion puppets than the superficially superior CGI effects presented here.  In fact, this eye-popping film has more in common with special effects extravaganzas like The Mummy than with the simple, but charming 1981 original.  Actor Sam Worthington lacks charisma as the star and more seriously, the film has no heart.  Sometimes bigger is not better.

  1. I saw the original “Clash of the Titans” and I loved it and don’t understand why they had to do a remake.
