All you guys that are saying this is crappy really mean its so crappy its good right?

Because if not, I think I'm on the wrong site haha! It was so bad that it was great in my opinion! How about those cool Scorpions they got to ride on? That is pure adventure/fantasy storytelling/visuals to me. The only downer for me of the whole movie was Liam Neeson because he couldn't even ham his role up to save it for himself, he came off way too serious in a glorified B movie. Plus some of the cgi is the best I've ever seen in a movie.

Oh, you are going to have some interesting times here, my friend. No, I will go out on a limb and make the guess that well more than half of the members here would pan the Clash of the Titans as a hack remake of a classic B. But not all, certainly, so I'm sure you'll find some company. There are some movies I don't ever have to see to know they're not worth my time. This is one of them.

But, to each their own.

This is why Hollywood keeps making remakes.  Even though a lot of you realize ahead of time this is likely to suck, you're still planning to go anyway.  If you would stop going to these movies, they would stop making them.

I like Sam Worthington.. well, I like to look at him, but I have zero desire to see this movie. None.  Thumbdown

I went in with low expectations and it turned out to be decent. Solid popcorn flick with top notch CGI (did I just type that? they really did a good job) and wild action. And Medusa? I loved her. She was totally awesome  Thumbup The ending was a blast, the score was fitting - even enhancing the 'scary' at times.
Mindless entertainment far from "suck" in my opinion. Definitely a keeper in my Blu-ray collection :)

I'm curious, did anyone else think the Djinn seemed a lot like the Protoss from Starcraft? 

Seriously, I kept expecting them to go, "En taro Adun!"

I finally caught in on cable over the weekend.

Nyeeeeh. It was marginally watchable. What was funny was that I watched Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief later that night and was officially saturated with Greek mythology that day.

Here's what I've always wondered about Clash of the Titans (either one). The Kraken is a part of Norse mythology, not Greek. What the hell is it doing in a movie about Greek mythology?

From www.tvtropes.org :

The original creature was Cetus, a giant whale... the switch was understandable because of that. The writer supposedly changed it because the Kraken's name sounded cooler. Ray Harryhausen gave it a more monstrous appearance for the sake of impressiveness as well

Plus theres' a lot of stuff in both the original and the new movie that got switched around and changed from the source material.  Neither was a direct recreation of one specific legend, and more of a mish-mash of various Greek (and some other) stuff put together.

For example: in the mythology, Cerebus (the three headed dog) guarded the entrance to Hades, not Medusa's lair.  I could give other examples, but I think everyone gets the point.  :)

I caught the second half of this the other day on HBO. I wasn't particularly bored with it but I have no desire to see the first half really.

I was very disappointed by this film.

It suffers from serious bad casting.  Had the right actors been cast, it might have been a little better.  But it wasn't and the film suffered as a whole.  All of Perseuse's companions were horribly cast.  They reminded me of the bad casting in The 13th Warrior for some reason.
I know I'm not the only one that thinks Sam Worthington should take a permanent hiatus from acting.  He flat out sucked as Perseus.

The only good scenes in this film were the confrontation with Medusa and when Perseus held up her head in front of the Kraken.

I'm giving this film 1.5 stars out of 4 and a big  Thumbdown   Question

Agreed on Worthington although there is no hiatus in sight.  He's been slated for a few films including this abomination remake;

That's actually exactly what I was thinking when I first saw him. I was halfway expecting him to spam mass carriers at Medusa. God I hated when opponents spammed carriers in Starcraft, but it works.
