Synopsis
In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus is helpless to save his family from Hades, vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.
My Review
The movie started off well enough but as the movie goes on it was as if the story line was jumbled up in a mess.
As for the Greek Gods, Apollo only had one line, Hades wasnt evil enough in dressing and Zeus was a bit soft hearted really. Plus the other gods was not involved in the movie, only the name spoken such as Poseidon, Aphrodite and Athena. Bummer cause i would have loved to see Aphrodite.
The Fates were nicely portrayed with the eye ball the keep fussing about.
My most memorable scene in the movie would have to be the fight against Medusa as for me, Medusa looked awesome really.
As the movie came to a close, my thoughts on the movie was, forget Greek Mythology and even story line cause for reference there are many better so the only good thing I could say bout the movie was it's decent fight scene and nice effects.
And if your gonna watch Clash of the Titans, go watch the 1981 version which is better in terms of story.

Recommendations
  • Watch if you must
  • A movie not for all to enjoy
  • Watch only for the effects


Rating : 2.5/5

Watched the movie. Nice review. I thought the movie also so compress and compact. Non-existence of other gods bit of disappointing. Should done the movie in trilogy. Like watching percy jackson the lightning thief, only this one instead the son of poseidon, its the son of zeus. haha
