The 1981 mythological fantasy adventure Clash of the Titans is resurrected in this remake from Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier.

When Zeus' brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes) casually wipes out Perseus' family, the grieving son vows to show

It's a little campy, a little creepy, a little too long and sometimes a bit of a mess. But it all adds up to a welcome dose of old-fashioned b-movie entertainment.

It comes together surprisingly well for a film that was supposedly rewritten a few times, resulting in changing the villain while cutting others' dialogue. It may not stand up to the original, but it's still a fun ride.

The action sequences are chaotic, the plot is difficult to follow and the cheesy sets sometimes look like props from a theme-park ride.

I should have known better than to look forward to Clash of the Titans, a film that unironically employs the tagline 'Titans Will Clash'.

How could this have been so completely messed up? Little boys playing with action figures could've improvised a better story than this garbage.

Sadly, the Kraken is far scarier in our imaginations. Just like the 1981 version is far better in our memories.

Clash of the Titans lives up to its promise of fast action and big visuals, but will not be seen as a VFX classic in the years to come.

Unlike the original, which made the 10-year-old version of myself want to don a bedsheet toga, fashion a shield from a garbage can lid, and behead evil gorgons, this version was kind of a snooze for both him and me.

This update's Achilles heel is its pervasive and dizzying, shot-too-tight camera technique.

It has no aspirations to be anything more than the popcorn movie it is, and for those amiably disposed to the genre, that should be enough.

The CGI extravaganza can't overcome all the other flaws: sloppy exposition, terrible dialogue, heavy-handed acting, and not a single likable character in the bunch.

Call this theme-park ride Around the Ancient World in 80 Minutes. Creatures get ridiculously larger and deadlier as action-scenes advance to the next video-game level. Dull, grey, spiritless.

Audience Reviews for Clash of the Titans

Remake of Clash of the Titans is a train wreck that relies far too much on CGI, as well as bland performances from the cast. What makes this a poor effort is that the original didn't need a remake as it wasn't that great to begin with, it was a borderline decent affair that had its moments, but in the long run was a forgettable movie that didn't warrant multiple viewings. With this remake, they follow essentially the same idea as the original, but use way too much CGI, which cheapens the film. Add to that tiresome performances from the cast, and you have a film that is painful to sit through that never is anything really entertaining. Clash of the Titans didn't necessitate a remake because the original wasn't memorable and there was limited ways to improve upon the plot, which of course the filmmakers seem to copy here, and never establish anything refreshing. With boring performances and a wasted cast, this remake joins all the others that have failed to really establish something good to a classic film, but in this case since the original wasn't memorable, I'm curious to know why they even went ahead with this movie. The film follows practically the same path as the original, but with insane CGI that is over the top, and fairly pointless in the long run. I found myself not really enjoying this one, in fact I found it to be a very bad movie and I was hoping that it wasn't as bad as what everyone has said about it. Don't go expecting great things from this film, it is a very disappointing film and it's a film that is highly forgettable because it's defi9nitely not a good movie.

The remake of the 1981 original is much more better (visually, of course) but it is obviously inefficient from the lackluster script. But though misdirected, the script wasn't that much harm to take away from the thrilling CGI-work throughout the entirety of the film. 3.5/5

Although it diverts from the original story and the original film version, this newer take on the story of Perseus is still pretty entertaining and decent in its own right.

The effects are better, and the overall look is sleeker and sharper, but there's no charm to any of this. Even though the old version's effects look cheesy, they were awesome because it took more effort to do them, and they had a certain charm to them. The effects here are suitably creepy and cool, but they don't wow me.

Aside from these quibbles (and the liberties), it kind of bugged me that Worthington didn't cover up his Aussie accent, and that he uses "hell" and "bitch" in an out of place modern context. I get why it's there, but it doesn't really fit and kind of shakes one out of the story for a bit. The action scens are great, and are very well done, but they all seemed rather rushed to me, and didn't radiate with as much intensity and tension as they should.

The casting and performances are all pretty good and, accent aside, Worthington has really become an amazing and credible action star thanks to his last few roles (this included). He's a great choice for Perseus, even if he seems lacking in the department of human emotions and depth. Fiennes is good as always, but his casting as Hades reeks of obviousness. Good job anyways though. Neeson is good as Zeus, and I can't think of a better choice, but I felt underwhelmed ofr some reason.

Actually, that's kind of how I felt about the whole movie. It was fun and entertaining, and a remake was probably not a bad idea, but things just feel a bit more artifical and cold, and that's not cool. I did like a certain cameo appearance of a character from the original film though- that was certainly a nice touch. I'm okay with some of the CGI even though I would have preferred more practical stuff, but I kind of wished the film was loinger so the action scenes wouldn't have to feel so rushed and so some more depth could be given all around to the characters and story.

So yeah, this isn't a great film, and the original is better, but it's a fine enough remake, and it's worth at least a watch or two.
