Clash of The Titans (2010) review

Synopsis: The mortal son of the god Zeus embarks on a perilous journey to stop the underworld and its minions from spreading their evil to Earth as well as the heavens.

Clash of The Titans. A remake of the 1981 classic. Although I wasn't a huge fan of the original, when compared to against the 2010 remake, the former takes the cake.

This film was most probably one of, if not THE worst 'epic' I have ever seen. Now don't get me wrong, the effects impressed me, there were certainly scenes which I thought looked great, (notably the scene in which Perseus is racing through the streets of Argos to re-claim the head, and in the background the Kraken could be seen; It looked quite impressive.) something you'd expect for a film of this calibre, but despite all of this, I found Titans to be mundane and quite honestly, something which ultimately fails to deliver.

There were several instances which made me question what Leterrier was trying to do; whether he was going for a remake or one of those 're-imagining' things they do so much of these days.

I'm aware that generally remakes are supposed to be different, but I wasn't asking for a shot for shot remake, there were just certain elements in the original which I felt should have stayed in the new film (The mechanical owl, the trident on Calibos' hand).

I won't say this was the worst film I have ever seen, because it wasn't. It was an epic which ultimately falls short of the reputation the classic has built up. Clash of The Titans was an average mythological outing which entertained me for the best part of the film- the opening titles.

I'll address the 3D- What a waste of the surcharge on the ticket.

Utterly disappointed with this remake of the classic 1981 film, decent visuals and lovely score make it a little better.

5/10
