Product Description

In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, Perseus and his warriors will only survive if Perseus accepts his power as a god, defies fate and creates his own destiny.

From Amazon.co.uk

"Release the Kraken!" Ah, it could only be Clash of the Titans, the 2010 remake that retains the instruction to unleash the great beastie from the sea. The 1981 original boasted Ray Harryhausen's legendary stop-motion technique of animating various mythological creatures--it was his final feature project--and given the cornball approach of the movie in general, that was the main draw. The remake supplies new state-of-the-art special effects (released theatrically in 3-D) and a nicely muscular sense of momentum. Sam Worthington (the Avatar guy) plays Perseus, a demigod who doesn't know that Zeus (Liam Neeson) is his father. Perseus is selected to lead an expedition to find and slay the Medusa, lest Zeus's evil brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes, in fine slinking mode) rain down misery upon a seaport--and you just know that means the Kraken is coming. Ye gods, it's a mess, and we haven't even mentioned the witches and the harpies and the giant scorpions. But if we did, it would be clear that Clash of the Titans is a perfectly dandy popcorn epic, unpretentious and punchy. Director Louis Leterrier (Transporter 2) gets a fine rhythm going during Perseus's trek, and you can even forgive the hokey shafts-of-light-through-clouds look of Olympus. Leterrier also had the good sense to import the marvelous Danish star Mads Mikkelsen to provide mentoring duties to Perseus; Gemma Arterton and Alexa Davalos fulfill the eye-candy roles. It's up to individual viewers to choose which they prefer--Harryhausen's magically hand-wrought creations (his Medusa sequence is an absolute killer) or the 21st century's slick computer-generated variations. But nostalgia aside, it would be hard to deny that this is one case where the remake tops the original. --Robert Horton

4.0 out of 5 stars "Let them known men did this!" 18 Dec 2010
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
At the risk of not so much swimming against the tide as against a tidal wave, I thought the much-despised 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans was a terrific entertainment that managed to improve on many aspects of the now much-loved but itself initially disparaged Ray Harryhausen version. For a start it's barely a remake, sharing only the title and the subject matter, discarding the love story and family-friendly elements for an altogether grittier and bleaker view that's at least more true to the cruelty of Greek mythology even if the details aren't so well served.

If Sam Worthington's Perseus is a throwback to the typical beefcake hero of 50s peplum, the script at least is smarter than the average mythological adventure. Instead of than fulfilling a divine destiny, this version's demi-god Perseus - half man, half-god, all-Ocker - is raging against it, determined to defy the gods as a man. These gods are cruel and parasitic, dependent on the worship of men to fuel their immortality but unwilling to earn it, their arrogance sparking a war with the mortals who don't want them any more. Rather than taking a Richard Dawkins "there is no god" approach, this is more of a "the gods exist and they're a right bunch of bastards" attack, with the dawning realisation that they can ultimately kill them by denying them their prayers. The film does copout on this with the end used in the film, the Blu-ray offering an alternate but poorly executed original version that saw Liam Neeson's Zeus and Perseus still very much at loggerheads, and by losing the love story between Perseus and Andromeda it does lower the stakes somewhat.

3.0 out of 5 stars It"s appropriate for current times 5 Sep 2013
Format:DVD
I took my young kids to the cinema to see the original Clash Of The Titans [DVD] [1981] in 1981,and they both enjoyed it almost as much as I did!
Would I do the same today with a 5 and 6 year old to see the 2010 version?Yes,probably.
Children have become dependant on viewing TV and films with spectacular CGI"s,car chases,plenty of action and probably brief glimpses of gore or blood-letting: their computer games and comics reflect this culture.
I think this new version has poorer acting performances in it than the original.Sam Worthington could have been carved out of a pine tree so wooden was he as the hero.

But there were good turns from Ralph Fiennes,Mads Mikkelsen and Vincent Regan in smaller roles that helped the film"s lack of credibility.
This version is about the action and the CGI"s and it succeeds in it"s aim which is to entertain todays youth.
I found it quite enjoyable too so there"s hope for me!
Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a 3D film 4 Dec 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Although this film is not to everyone's taste, it will do for me. Great on blue ray, but it not a 3D film so I think it doesn't warrant the extra cost afforded to proper 3D films, just my opinion for what it's worth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clash Of The Titans - titanic special effects 20 Nov 2012
By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I am a huge fan of the original Clash Of the Titans, mainly due to the stop motion effects of Ray Harryhausen of whom I am great fan, so this 2010 remake was always going to be a tough sell for me. But having put my reservations aside I found to my surprise that this was actually a pretty good film.

Stylishly shot, with some decent CGI effects, decent actors and a good script, this is a film that delivers. It's a basic sword and sandals saga, musclebound hero goes off on quest to save damsel in distress, but done with some panache and a sense of pace that keeps the film ticking along nicely. It does what it needs to and delivers 100 minutes of undemanding entertaining escapism. I really enjoyed it, 4 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flash, Trash, or Car Crash? 10 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
I've read a few reviews here saying it's the worst thing they've seen all year. I think that's a shame. This is not an Oscar-winner by any definition, granted, but it's not the low point of 2010's cinematic output either.
I accept the point that Sam Worthington isn't a good enough actor to warrant the hype, but he looks the part, and it works for me. The characters, although portrayed by decent actors, are shallow and/or predictable (a conversation on Charon's Barge reminded me of all that was crass about the Airport movies), so rather than rooting for them, you're just left trying to work out in advance which one will die in the next battle. But this isn't attempting to be educational or otherwise "worthy" in the Schindler's List vein... it's meant to be entertaining, and it manages that.
As a visual spectacle, it's worth watching, although movie effects usually translate poorly to the small screen. It's fair to say the Kraken is woefully underused, and the scorpions are average at best, but everything else passes muster, and the Pegasus is gorgeous!
Ultimately, I think this film isn't what the makers hoped it would be, but it isn't a stinker. It's always going to be compared (probably unfavourably) with the original, and rightly so, but it's still an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.
