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.

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.

Some people with beards wander around dispatching a modest selection of mythical creatures for no apparent reason. In spite of having Gemma Arterton around to help out and look pretty, they are generally quite ineffective and lots of them die in surprisingly uninteresting ways. Then the film ends. It looks quite whizzy though which covers up the lack of any discernable plot and prevents you from dozing off completely.

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.

If you have never watched the original movie, know very little about the storyline, then this is an excellent movie

However, if you have watched the original movie, then this is a big let down as the storyline was changed. I can't believe the original movie was significantly better than something made in the 21st century. I preferred the monsters from the original to this. Did you see kalibos?

Take a great film, strip out all its charm, fill it with mindless action scenes, and you get Clash of the Titans (2010). Not that I am against action scenes, but these are mindless ones. And not based in Greek mythology at all. What's the point? They even literally insulted the previous film by cameo-ing the mechanical owl... only to ridicule it and throw it aside... such disrespect!

This film is OK, But if you have a Samsung 3D TV then the up scale to 3D does the same job.
Save your money and buy the 2D version and up scale.

If you are looking for entertainment this will do, although it is annoying at times. Io comes over as somewhat of a know it all.

However if you want something of some quality & merit you can't go wrong with Harryhausen's original.
