Eyerollingly stupid, surprisingly budget, unfaithful to the mythos but hey- Mads wears a skirt & the Kracken DOES get off it's glorious bum in the end, consuming 2/3 of the CGI money in 3 mins of town-munching... Read more havoc (just FF). Will lower your IQ.
This is a remake of the original 80's film adaptation of the myth of Perseus. Although the plot was a bit different and less convoluted than the original, it felt disjointed. The Australian accent of... Read more Perseus was a distraction and made Sam Worthington unconvincing. Had I not seen the original when I was a child, I would probably give this film more stars because of its fast pace and superior special effects/animation (the Pegasus is particularly well done). It is still worth a look if you enjoy the action/fantasy genre.
I was really looking forward to this, but was surprisingly disappointed in it. Great potential, just a shame it didn't come close. Plot was wishy-washy - violence was there for the sake of violence... Read more, rather than providing any assistance to the script. Characters lacked motivation and behaviour was erratic. Best scene was the view of the world as seen from Olympius.
The atmosphere created early on by the music and sudden action was captivating for a while, but then the script and various accents of the actors began to break the spell. There's the Dane, the Aussie... Read more, the Scot, the American, the Brit and the Irish - and they're all supposedly Greek! It's like they only chose actors who had the most pronouncd accent of their kind. There were some unintentionally humourous moments and some obvious holes in the story where the answers had been edited out.
Having loved the original movie was really looking forward to a great movie and yes I really liked it!
The original version was the first cinema movie I ever saw and was hooked on sword and sandal movies ever since. The original had a massive impact on me so I was really looking forward to this. This... Read more, was rubbish. I was so let down despite all the special effects. It was just lacking the x factor. This movie should be sent straight to hades!
It was an entertaining action/fantasy epic, if you've got time to kill, put your feet up and sit back and enjoy.
Rather slow unfortunately, was looking forward to watching this movie but it was a bit of a let down:( good special effects though.
I only got this out for my partner to watch, I would rather spend 102 minutes doing vacuuming.I think he enjoyed it.
Not much to say on this movie. I was expecting a lot more and it came across as cheap. A bit unfortunate because this could have been a great movie with a better director
