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.

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.

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.

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.

I really don't know why so many people are slating this movie. It's a great action film. I think people are just over intellectualising films these days. Just watch it and enjoy. If you put it on then spend every second dissecting it then of course you won't enjoy it. So for one hour forty minutes, suspend disbelief and lose yourself in a world of myth, mythology and monsters. A very enjoyable film.
