This affectionate fan tribute to the legendary stop-motion special effects artist is distinguished by the fact that the fans paying tribute are among the most successful directors in the world.

A little too exhaustive in its detail, but if you loved his febrile creations in Jason And The Argonauts or the Sinbad movies, it's worth catching.

Essential viewing for any fantasy film fans.

A continual delight.

Observer [UK]

While a little light and fluffy - and not offering much insight or info that hasn't been covered in the numerous books on Harryhausen - it's a wonderful celebration of his work.

Harryhausen emerges as a charming, likable pioneer, a mood helped along by the adoring nature of this profile.

Audience Reviews for Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan

On the DVD of 20 Million Miles to Earth there is a different documentary about the career of Ray Harryhausen. It has some different graphics and interviews, but many of the same anecdotes across the timeline of Harryhausen's life. I watched this one on Netflix. What it contains that the other lacks are interviews with filmmakers like Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, and Guillermo del Torro, as well as other effects artists who talk about the influence that Harryhausen's creatures had on them. And Harryhausen speaks for himself quite often.
