Sam Worthington: An Action Hero for the Ages
Alternate ending: Perseus confronts Zeus on Mount Olympus
Top Customer Reviews
The new Clash of the Titans is a darker, grittier more realistic Bronze age world than the 1981 version, but the story hasn`t changed all that much. The citizens of Argos have become disenchanted with the rule of the Gods. The Gods have caused too much chaos and ruin to their lives so they've decided to take their destinies into their own hands, and destroy the temples and statues of the Gods. In doing so, Perseus'(Sam Worthington) family is killed by a falling statue of Zeus. When Zeus (Liam Neeson) learns of the desecration urged on by Hades (Ralph Fiennes), he decides to destroy the city in four days or they can offer the sacrifice of the King of Argos' daughter Andromeda (Alexa Davalos). In a visit to the throne room of Argos, Hades lets it slip that Perseus is a son of Zeus, a demi-god. Being told of his near divinity, Perseus and a group of soldiers go off on their quest to save the city.
The special effects are great! The monsters look real and the characters realistically interact with them. In 3D the water roiling off the undulating tentacles of the Kraken must look really cool! The problem is they shortchanged the story in favor of the special effects. The story only follows the barest of outlines of the myth. Same with the 1981 version, although it's a little more faithful to the myth. The most glaring lapse is there really isn't any reason for Perseus to save Argos. In the myth his reason to save the city is for the love of Andromeda.Read more ›
I am very pleased to say that what I expected to be a movie filled with too much action (I expected mostly fighting and effects with no real plot) was actually fantastic! It's now one of my favorites, especially as I now have it synced onto my iPod and iPad (thank you digital copy!), so I can watch it any time or place I'd like.
The 3D is incredible! The picture and sound are very realistic (on every version of the movie, even DVD). I was very impressed.
However, if you are expecting an "old time" movie theatre 3D, you will not find that here. The 3D in this movie is not where the images jump off the screen and into your face to scare you (which is probably good, because it would definitely distract from the rest of the movie). You will not be waiting for something to reach out and grab you, so if that's what you're looking for, you'd be better finding a movie like Despicable Me. Instead, the 3D is used to improve the quality of the visuals, making you feel as though you are in the room with the characters. It is very realistic. That way, you become even more engaged with the plot.
Definitely NOT a disappointment
But then there are movies that require an extra amount of brain-power just to understand the convoluted events of the plot, and which leave you feeling frustrated and drained at how little sense it makes. Thus we have the remake of "Clash of the Titans", which is really an excuse for one hundred and six minutes of CGI monsters, with a vague plot, non-existent characterization, and semi-passable fight scenes on the side. Of course, this all may still float your boat, but if you prefer to have some *semblance* of coherence in your popcorn flicks then either stick with the campy fun of the original, or skip it altogether.Read more ›

I'm like you. At least when it comes to judging entertainment. I didn't see this movie at the theater. I, probably will wait until the price comes down then purchase it.

you might be better off just going to apple trailers for the latest green lantern trailers. i just got tron legacy bluray and most of their sneak peeks are movies that are coming within a couple of months like cars 2 and pirates 4. so sneak peek of a movie more than a year apart would be a stretch.

to order to market the blu ray version. Keep in mind that blu ray is replacing dvd format and dvd will be a thing of the past in 2011. Hate it or not blu ray is the new standard.

I am a 30 year old female and I normally love movies like this. I can't say that I hated the movie, but it certainly didn't live up to the hype.

|Not as bad as people say||
i tried to watch the original too before watching the new one, but since i had no nostalgia of it prior, almost couldnt bear to finish it at all.
i think its good they didnt remake it exactly scene for scene and instead went and added new elements and directions with this one.
