Clash of the Titans in 3D
Clash of the Titans in 3D was a far from perfect movie, however was an immensely enjoyable summer blockbuster. Zeus (Liam Neeson) decides the human race has become ungrateful and decides to punish them by releasing a beast known as the Gorgon, his Demigod son, Perseus (Sam Worthington) embarks on a quest to save humanity. Firstly the 3D was almost non-existent which will disappoint those paying extra for the experience. Now onto the film itself and its biggest problem was that it was too modern and American considering that it was supposed to be ancient and Greek. This was especially true of the dialogue that would have been at home on an American TV show such as Friends. And particularly humorous was the depiction of Medusa as a sex siren. However this was something that for the most part you could dismiss and enjoy the awesome spectacle created by the sets and some of the best CGI I have ever seen. Sam Worthington also deserves credit, as he appears to be developing into a credible and charismatic leading man that can carry a film of this magnitude. This is a film that as long as you can suspend your belief, will provide two hours of solid entertainment.
