Clash of the Titans - A Critique

directors_chairIn the age when movie studios pan the comic book/graphic novel genre for blockbuster  gold and cult classic TV shows and movies are remade in hopes of lighting striking twice, it was probably inevitable that the vintage 80’s stop-motion animation rich film Clash of the Titans would get today’s Hollywood treatment.

Movie Title: Clash of Titans

Studio: Warner Bros.

Director: Louis Leterrier

Cast: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton

Plot: 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.

Rating: Rated PG-13 for fantasy action violence, some frightening images and brief sensuality

Bottom Line: **.5/***** While the special effects dress this remake into something grand - newer and cooler doesn’t mean better.
