I was a fan of the first Clash Of The Titans movie (1981, I think). I even had some of the action figures. I was in the kitchen a couple of weeks ago and I said “You know what would be great? If they were to re-make COTT with all the computer generated technology” and then 2 days later, I hear they are releasing it! The previews looked like a lot more action than I prefer, but the graphics looked amazing!
I went to see the preview Thursday night (last night). I tried to watch it as it’s own movie, instead of comparing it to the original. I was extremely impressed with some of the graphics, but the one character I wanted to see more of was Medusa. She had a very small part. The movie started off very very slow and so, at the end, they tried to shove everything in, so it seemed rushed.
The one thing I LOVED about the movie was that he had absolutely NO love interest. Most movies these days have a sex scene that has nothing to do with the plot, but is simply thrown in to give straight men a reason to watch it. It’s almost a joke sometimes. This movie didn’t have any of that crap thrown in. When they ended the film, he wasn’t running to someone’s arms. BRILLIANT! If you remember, the first movie had some of that thrown in, the main character was trying to save his love interest from the Kraken. This time, he was saving a city. (and in the process saved the princess)
When I left the theater, I wasn’t excited about the film, it was just a good movie. After thinking about it, though, I liked it a lot. I don’t think it’s going to have a long run at the theaters, but this will be something that’s on TV every other day, eventually.
I will give this one 4 out of 5 stars for being very commercial, graphic design, not sexual, and the choice of main actor.
