Director: Louis Leterrier. Cast: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Elizabeth McGovern, Danny Huston. 106 min. Rated PG-13.
This is one of those instances where you know from the very first minutes you're dealing with a dumb movie. I was never impressed by the 1981 version of Clash of the Titans anyway, but the remake has such flimsy dialogue and such an idiotic plot (including the concept of Gods sitting up there, entertaining themselves by pissing off humans), it undermines the whole beauty of Greek mythology. Like always, Ralph Fiennes is an awesome villain, but one is amazed what some good actors see in such a screenplay to make them invest their credibility.
PS #1: As opposed to movies like Avatar, which were filmed 3D from the get go, the studio execs actually switched some copies of Clash of the Titans from 2D to 3D, just to make some extra money. To check the quality, I removed my 3D glasses from the beginning, and except for some mild background blurriness, the images actually looked better!
PS #2: I don't think Sam Worthington has much of a future. He has played the exact same inflexible character in all three of his blockbuster hits (Terminator: Salvation, Avatar, and Clash of the Titans).
