Movie Review: Clash of the titans!

A Mythical hello, my freEk fellows,

Surely James Cameron must have realised the implications of unleashing the 3D
(enhanced) technology, that he would be opening quite the Pandora's box, for wasn't the planet in Avatar called Pandora!

Studios today are falling over themselves to create/re-create every adventure epic possible and the latest cinematic offering to get the remake treatment is 1981's Clash of the Titans

What it is: Clash of the Titans is the mythical story of demi-god Perseus who undertakes an epic journey to fend off Hades ( the god of the underworld) from destroying Earth.

How it is: On paper Clash Of The Titans could well be one of the biggest earners ever, with a stellar cast having Sam "Avatar" Worthington as Perseus, Liam Neeson as "Zeus" and Ralph Fiennes as "Hades" not to mention a bevy of digitally created monsters such as gigantic scorpions, the lovely Medusa and the horrible horror that is the KRAKEN! In reality though, the lead actors sleepwalk through their roles, in fact when Perseus manages to mount the winged Pegasus we are all but reminded of the similar scene in Avatar when Jake Scully ( also played by Worthington) manages to mount the Turak Makto in Avatar.

Even the CGI created KRAKEN, leaves you yearning for the rather cute KRAKEN puppet that starred in the 1981 original.


An iffish two the 1981 version instead!!
