Critics Consensus: Titans Is Not A Kraken Good Time
This week at the movies, we've got swords and sandals (Clash of the Titans, starring Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson); teen romance (The Last Song, starring Miley Cyrus and Greg Kinnear); and couplehood challenges (Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too, starring Janet Jackson and Michael Jai White). What do the critics have to say? The original Clash of the Titans was campy, goofy, and plenty of fun - partly because of the charmingly lo-fi special effects. However, critics say the big-budget remake lacks the joie de vivre of the original. Miley Cyrus can't play Hannah Montana forever, so what better way to take baby steps toward an adult film career is there than starring in a Nicholas Sparks movie? Unfortunately, critics say Cyrus' showcase, The Last Song, is a bland, bloodless weepie.
