Ever since I was a kid I was always a fan of greek mythology and I watched most of the movies based on those stories growing up.One of the movies I remember the most was the 1981 classic Clash Of The Titans which at the time had some of the greatest special effects i'd ever seen.Not only did I become a huge fan of this movie,but I also was introduced to the work of Ray Harryhausen who did memorable special effects for other movies I enjoyed. When I first heard they doing a remake of this classic film like always I cringed at the thought of another childhood favorite being ruined. My only comfort was that the modern-day special effects would make a great story better.
After learning about the cast which includes
- Sam Worthington as Perseus
- Liam Neeson as Zeus
- Ralph Fiennes as Hades
- Gemma Arterton as Io
With a solid cast I figured it was going to be good. After seeing the trailer I see this movie doing the original justice. While they may go crazy with effects if the overall story stays true to the original I think it'll make money.It's nice to see the new generation get introduced to an old favorite.
Check out both the trailer for the 81 classic as well as the nice and new 2010 version.Enjoy!
