Cast / crew
Clash of the Titans (2010)
Perseus, illegitimate son of the god Zeus, has been blessed with incredible thighs and the ability to learn decades of sword-fighting experience in under a minute but cursed with the charisma of cheap cheese. Fortunately, bland, stubborn, irritating and Australian is how the ancient Greeks like their heroes and so he is sent to the Fates to discover how to defeat the Kraken and save Argos, thus protecting catalogue shopping for all time.
Whatever charisma is, Sam Worthington doesn’t have it but he is by no means the worst thing about this film. No, that would be the script which sees writers laughing all the way to the bank as they cut-and-paste movie tropes with reckless half-heartedness with no consideration for an audience that will be tempted to watch this for spectacular monster mash action. That said, audiences will be deceived on that front as well. There are a number of decent monsters but they are undone by Hollywood’s current inability to produce a decent action sequence. An action sequence should have a beginning, middle and end. It should be a mini-journey, a clear battle of mind and metal with our hero emerging victor because of something only he can do. Clash of the Titans is bland, worthless non-entertainment and the extra star here is for the Pegasus effects only.
