Movie: Clash of the Titans (2010)

The Clash Begins...

Is everyone excited about
"Clash of the Titans" (2010)? Who isn't, agree? :)

Let's see.

First, this movie is available in 3D, the latest cinematic craze after Avatar's huge success.

Second, it's about Greek mythology. Remember Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Perseus, Medusa, Pegasus, and the rest of their "cronies".

Third, we've got big name actors like Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation, Avatar) as Perseus, Liam Neeson as Zeus, and Ralph Fiennes as Hades.

Fourth, with all sort of hypes surrounding this movie, it looks really good and sounds very fantastic.

And so, I watched. :)

In those days, there is no peace between men and the gods. In "Clash of the Titans", another war is about to begin in Argos, one of the cities in Greek mythology.

Perseus (first photo, not including movie poster), a demi-god, the son of Zeus (second photo) wants to take revenge on one of the gods, Hades (third photo) for the death of his family.

However, it turns out that Perseus' destiny is to rescue Argos from being destroyed by Hades and the sea monster, Kraken. Zeus allows Hades to destroy Argos without realizing Hades' intention to overthrow him and destroy mankind.

The best part of the movie is the perilous and damned journey of Perseus, the demi-god and his human army, led by Draco. They meet with Acrisius (Perseus' mother's husband), the Djinn, giant desert scorpions, Stygian Witches, Medusa, and finally, the Kraken. Well, only Perseus survives the journey with the help of Pegasus, the flying horse to defeat the Kraken and save Argos from destruction.

If you think you'll get to watch authentic Greek mythology about Perseus' journey, you'll be slightly disappointed. No worries, you'll soon be entertained by action scenes plus special effects that serve their purpose to divert you from being sarcastic about their weird storyline. ;)

What do I mean by weird storyline? Well, there's a Kraken in the movie. Kraken doesn't exist in Greek mythology. Kraken are mythical sea monsters of gargantuan size, said to have dwelt off the coasts of Norway and Iceland. So, it's nowhere near Greece. The Greek sea monster is called Cetus.

The battle of Perseus and his army with giant scorpions at the desert is intense and interesting. Same goes to the sneaky fight with Medusa before Perseus cut her head off her slithering body. I'd say that these two scenes are the most watchable part of this movie.

Overall, if you don't mind watching some warped Greek mythology, this movie is considerably entertaining. However, there's nothing much to shout about. You may give it a try if you're treating yourself with some cinematic enjoyment soon. :)
