Clash of the Titans Reviews

April 9, 2010
The clashing titans in Clash of the Titans are a pretty sorry lot.

April 5, 2010
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.
April 5, 2010
It doesn't add up at all.
April 5, 2010
On July 10th, it will be released on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and only then, I feel, will it truly come into its own.
April 5, 2010
It isn't a train wreck -- a train wreck would be memorable.
April 2, 2010
Goofball clash with the actors providing plenty of ham to go with the cheesy story.

April 2, 2010
There's little here to improve upon the stilted quality of the original, and it's even more cumbersomely plotted.

There's not a lot of humor in this new Clash -- not intentional, anyway.

Apparently the gods need better agents.

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

As it turns out, this Clash of the Titans was dated before it opened.

The remake out this weekend largely does away with the stately Titans stuff, in favor of more clashing.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/10
April 2, 2010
The latest example of Hollywood's belief that any terrible script can be made palatable if you just throw enough money and British accents at it.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
April 2, 2010
A roaring old-school action adventure for kids, with as many mythical beasts as a year at Hogwarts and a healthy dose of smiting without the crazed bloodlust of 300.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 2, 2010
I liked it. This is a full-throttle action-adventure, played unapologetically straight.
April 2, 2010
Clash of the Titans, which was directed by Louis Letterier, is strictly no-D.
April 2, 2010
If you're into Greek mythos, or action, or slightly cheesy (but knowing) humor, then this should prove an adequate source of entertainment.

At the moment when Sam Worthington, trapped inside a giant scorpion, sword-hacked his way through the dorsal carapace and poked the upper half of his body through the opening as if it were a sunroof, I fell in love with Clash of the Titans.

Avatar has taken a lot of heat for being weak on story and overly reliant on visual effects, but compared with this witless, chaotic mess of a movie, James Cameron's epic looks worthy of the ancient Greek authors...

It's not as if "Clash of the Titans" is some popcorn masterpiece undone by the 3-D manipulations of its parent studio; the clunky script and blockbuster-in-a-box cluttered construction of it are probably just as lifeless in two dimensions.

If you must see Clash of the Titans, be sure to see it in glorious 2-D.

Although purists will always prefer the original picture, this remake really does justify its existence. How often can you say that?

The film is a sham, with good actors going for the paycheck and using beards and heavy makeup to hide their shame.

April 1, 2010
The 3-D technology tacked onto Clash of the Titans is like the coins put on the eyes of the dead for Charon, the Stygian ferryman. It's bribery to accept a lifeless lump.

April 1, 2010
A slick and empty spectacle much of the time, this Clash has a particularly tough time establishing bonds between characters who are supposed to mean everything to each other.

French director Louis Leterrier loves this world. But Clash of the Titans feels like he fought -- and lost -- his own battle for control.

This Clash of the Titans isn't bad. It's just not particularly necessary.

It's one supremely silly movie, but it's also a Razzies-ready hoot.

April 1, 2010
Leterrier aims no higher than competence and achieves just that, shepherding a series of slick, CGI creations across the screen to the accompaniment of an organ-rattling sound design.

Overall, it's a colossal waste of time.

The whole thing feels like a joyless slog.
April 1, 2010
This remake is interesting mainly for the chance to see top-flight acting talent labor over dialogue so leaden you could cast bullets from it.
April 1, 2010
This was an epic made for Sam of Worthington, and Ralph of Fiennes, and Liam of Pay Me Now. And it would be full of tricks made by machine, and talk made by fools, and pictures of three dimensions that seemed merely like the View-Masters of old.

Somehow, a promising popcorn movie got abducted by the God of Boredom.

Whatever the flaws in the script, there's no faulting director Louis Leterrier's visual ambition: this is a film of mighty vistas, beautifully designed beasts and intense, well-structured combat sequences...

This Clash provides frequent occasion for awe.
April 1, 2010
I don't say it's good cinema, although I recognize the craftsmanship that went into it. I don't say it's good acting, when the men have so much facial hair they all look like Liam Neeson. I like the energy, the imagination, the silliness.

The new Clash isn't a cynical rehash. It has the flavor of a certain pre-CGI innocence.

Clash of the Titans is ancient Greece at its cheesiest.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 31, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 31, 2010
So tone deaf to the material is Leterrier that the spirit of the remake owes more to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen than a sword-and-sandal film. Bigger, louder, more expensive? All that, for sure. But better? Not by a long shot.

There's not much here that will stick with you after the popcorn's gone. But as any ancient Greek could tell you, that's sort of the point.

A fun digital ride through Greek mythology as humans clash with gods and monsters.
March 29, 2010
Even more haphazardly plotted than the original, Clash of the Titans boasts 3D imagery and kinetic action that can't obscure a movie that is, finally, pretty flat.
