    Synopsis


    Clash of the Titans
    The 1981 mythological fantasy adventure Clash of the Titans is resurrected in this remake from Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier. Discovered at sea as an infant by a weary fisherman, demigod Perseus (Sam Worthington) grows up with no real knowledge of his celestial origins until his watchful guardian, Io (Gemma Arterton), informs him that he is the offspring of Zeus (Liam Neeson). When Zeus' brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes) casually wipes out Perseus' family, the grieving son vows to show the gods just what kind of damage humankind can inflict on its creators. Before long, Perseus and a small group of soldiers are venturing out into the desert in order to find a way to stop the Kraken, a terrifying force of nature that an indignant Hades has vowed to unleash upon man should they fail to offer up beloved princess Andromeda (Alexa Davalos) as a sacrifice. Along the way, the soldiers encounter a trio of frightening witches with second sight, contend with Hades' devoted servant Calibos (Jason Flemyng), battle giant scorpions, and come face to face with Medusa (Natalia Vodianova), the dreaded gorgon whose gaze has the power to turn men into stone. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      3D - Expectations vs. Reality

      Posted
      nullity

      As one of the few non IMAX or children's animated movies available in the Blu-ray 3D format, this title found its way into my collection. My expectations for the 3D effects were in line with reality, so I'm pretty happy with the purchase. It is in my opinion an exciting action movie with good special effects and enough 3D depth to help draw you into the experience. In a nutshell, do not expect the 3D to be on par with Avatar or any other native 3D movie. See, this movie was shot using a 2D camera, and later converted to 3D. I did not see it in 3D at the theaters, but by most accounts it was a terrible 3D conversion. I have read that Warner Brothers remastered the 3D for the Blu-ray release, and I am inclined to believe it because I did not find the 3D to be terribly underwhelming for what it is. I am certain, however, that other reviewers will post negative reviews stating that they couldn't tell if the movie was 2D or 3D and whatnot... just as they did with The Last Airbender (which was also shot in 2D). If you buy this movie expecting world-class 3D effects, prepare to be disappointed. The reality of it is that any 3D conversion will not be as perfect as a true 3D movie, just as paintings are not as realistic as photographs. If you buy this movie because you want something in 3D that you can watch with buddies over a few beers, you might be satisfied... just be sure to start the night with a few minutes of some IMAX film or kids movie to show them what 3DTV -can- do.

      This is a review of the 3d Effects only.

      OK, I got this movie early in my 3D education. Here's the deal: If I get a movie in 3D it doggone well better give me all the bells and whistles. The problem with the medium is if its not shot in 3D, then you are gonna have issues such as ghosting, blurry action sequences, and sub par 3d viewing experiences. Unfortunately, that's what you get here. Now if you compare the effects of this movie VS Resident Evil: Afterlife, or Avatar, then you will see what i mean. If I get a 3D movie, I want the pictures to pop, the bullets flying out of the screen at me, and all the bells and whistles because THAT'S why my dumb self spent all the cash i did on all this stuff in the first place. If you are wanting great 3D effects, this isn't the best of the batch.

      Better than the original

      Posted
      CmdrThrawn

      I loved the original with all of it's special effects and poor acting. So, when this movie came out at the theaters I decided not to see it. It is so disappointing that Hollywood only knows how to remake moves, turn books into movies, or make super hero movies. Where is all of the creativity they claim they have? That said. The movie in my opinion was great. I didn't think it could have been better. I watched it with no expectation and that made it even better. The special effects were great. The story went in a little different direction from the original. There was even a blatant reference to the original movie that got a chuckle out of me. I was most surprised at the lack of profanity. I think there was one in the whole movie. How does that happen anymore? I wish they all were like that. The bottom line for me...buy it!

      Awesome movie for family

      I watched the original Clash of the Titans as a child and loved it so I was so excited to hear that it was being remade. I felt like the storyline kept it interesting without leaving out any of the most important aspects of the original screenplay and the special effects were FANTASTIC! I watched it with my 4 kids ages15, 12, 10 and 6. They all loved it and were not offended or afraid of any aspects of it. The youngest two understood it was fictional fantasy. I purchased it at Best Buy, getting the lowest possible price, because the sales person called another store I was concerned would be cheaper and matched their pricing when the computer didnt show the sale price that i knew the competing store was offering.So everything about this particular movie was Great.

      Greek Mythology At Its Best

      Posted
      whiterabbit

      I really enjoyed this version of Greek Mythology come to life. Growing up in the Mediterranean gave me a great appreciation for Greek Mythos and stories centered in the Mediterranean sea. This movie brings it all to life, keeping true to the feel and tradition of the original stories. The stunts and cinematography, as well as the acting, made it all very enjoyable, really first rate. The Blu Ray version has amazing graphics. Most memorable, IMHO, was the Medusa, who was perfectly portrayed as a blend of seductive beauty and hideous ugliness (not an easy blend to achieve). The acting was great too, and brought a nice sense of realism to the plot. Awesome directing in general. 5 stars for sure.

      Missed it in theaters, but good anyway!

      Was a sweet movie, watched it on my 13" MacBook Pro. Would have liked to have seen it in theaters, but numerous people and reviews told me not to waste my money. Unless its a Uwe Boll film I will never listen to what anyone has to say about a movie ever again. The Kraken would've looked WAY cooler on the big screen then on my 13" MacBook Pro... Cut half the dialogue from the original film (I would've fallen asleep if this was the original) add some good fight scenes to it, and you got yourself an action flick. Anyone who is looking for an awesome Oscar winning storyline in an action movie is just being silly!!

      Entertaining Movie, Really Bad 3D Conversion

      Posted

      I knew going in that this movie was not rated high for 3D, but I did not realize just how bad it is. This has to be the worst 3D conversion I've seen. Now, most of the effects are really well done, but some of the perspectives are exaggerated so much that landscapes look unrealistic, and the heads of the gods on Mt. Olympus seem to have a weird double image behind them. The movie itself is really entertaining and has some well known actors. It is probably more enjoyable in 2D, though.

      Clash of the Titans ( the re-make)

      Posted
      flopper

      I was disappointed in how the story was told. It felt like everything in the original movie was jammed into the first half-hour of the re-make. The special effects are good. But I felt the original was better. The original story was well told, there was humor, and of course it was a love story. The special effects in the original are sub-standard as compared to today's technology, but they were good at that time. Characters were left out in the re-make. Namely Bubo the owl. He was the comic foil to Burgess Meridith's character. I will stick with the original.
