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'.

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 clash is more like a mild 'pressing together'.

Leterrier's version is loud, busy and intense, and it's still saddled with bad dialogue, dopey-looking sets and costumes and a lead performance that's completely flat.

Imagine downing a cold 12-pack in two hours and then trying to walk home. That's exactly what [the 3D action scenes in Clash of the Titans] feel like.

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

An otherwise passable adventure film that almost survives its many problems with energetic action sequences, but is ultimately damaged by the gimmick of 3D.

Visually, Titans makes 300 look like the painstaking work of a Renaissance master. ... But on a story level, it's got an old-fashioned dumbness that's endearing.

There are plenty of moments of fun and excitement, but the extent to which the film drags its heels in between, is ultimately its undoing.

The battles look great with computer renderings, but outside the Kraken sequence they don't inspire an ounce of awe. The gods have never looked more real, or mattered less

Thank the Gods Gemma Arterton is very, very good looking.

Clash of the Titans is a flawed but mildly entertaining regurgitation of Greek mythological elements, but it's also an example of how poorly executed 3D can hamstring a would-be spectacle.

It doesn't soar (though Pegasus the winged horse is captivating).

This remake is bigger and grander but misses the life that Harryhausen brought to his fantastic creations...Instead, we get the same CGI-fest.

To make up for the lack of dramatic oomph in the screenplay, director Louis Leterrier frequently pumps up the volume, particularly on Ramin Djawadi's score, which sounds like cobbled-together outtakes from The Amazing Race.

Clash of the Titans, which was directed by Louis Letterier, is strictly no-D.
Adam Lippe
April 2, 2010
As 3-D always does, the movie looks dark and dingy --not polished and expensive, as the 2-D version probably was.

On a purely visual level, this standard-brand, CGI-gorged remake of the Ray Harryhausen fantasy adventure is worth watching, for the Medusa scene alone.
