THE BEST PROMOS
MOVIE REVIEW:Clash of the Titans
After his roles in Terminator 4 and the blockbuster Avatar, Sam
Worthington continues his fantasy leading man roles as Perseus in the
remake of the 1981 cult classic, Clash of the Titans. This is a new
imagination of the timeless mythology of the world of gods, monsters
and men. No stop-action animation and obvious miniatures this time.
Perseus begins his life simply enough as the son of a fisherman. But
life soon takes a cruel turn when the only family he knows is taken
from him by the gods they serve. Soon he is presented with an
opportunity to get justice by a chance of birth, his own. He is told he
is the son of Zeus. But Perseus takes no pleasure in this information,
he spurns it. He even turns down an offer from Zeus himself to be given
sanctuary and end his quest of revenge. Ultimately he embraces being a
demi-god to strike a blow at the gods that no mortal man ever could.
In this adaptation Perseus is not motivated to battle medusa or the
kraken to save the damsel in distress, Andromeda. No, he is on a
mission of revenge. This is what I liked most that gives this
contemporary Perseus an edgier demeanor. He is of the mindset that if
Andromeda or anyone else happens to benefits from his conquests cool,
but that is not his goal. He is a man with a single focus and
determination, destroy Hades.
Continually catching my attention in this movie were the locations.
There were views from mountain tops overlooking a sea of clouds, barren
inactive volcanoes to jutting cliff sides, visually stunning.
The story line is predictable, so what is there to like? The fight
scenes! He and his companions battle witches, gigantic scorpions, a
deformed king, medusa and finally the kraken. With the new digital
technology you believed they were fighting those scorpions. Medusa on
the other hand; hey, even with new technology medusa and her head full
of snakes is only going to look so real. But, I love to watch a good
fight. In Clash of the titans I got 'em.
