Clash of the Titans

Rated 1.0

This was a remake I was looking forward to. The original Clash of the Titans had spectacular moments, the most memorable one being Medusa’s lair, but it was mostly a campy mess and a modern remake seemed an inviting proposition. Had producers decided to go 3-D before Avatar’s mega-success, we might’ve had something that was at least visually fun with this remake. Instead, they decided, rather late in the game, to convert Titans to 3-D in post-production. The result is a poorly executed story coupled with the very worst excuse for 3-D effects I’ve seen yet. Sam Worthington, of Avatar fame, grunts his way through the role of Perseus, actually making us miss Harry Hamlin, star of the original. The 3-D is awkward, unimpressive and unfortunate.
