CLASH OF THE TITANS movie review

from the legends and written history of Greek mythology, comes another remake of the 1981 Clash of the Titans. to recall the story, here's the sypnosis from Moviefone:

In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.

i think the promotions made us to expect more. though the CG effects were good and also actors have portrayed the roles well, you might be missing some points that were taken out of the story. some of my expectations were also but i think they are placed appropriately in the movie. like Pegasus is a black winged-stallion, although it was not that magical as much people would assume, the movie's strong delivery made Pegasus a very mighty horse.

there's a lot of action but there's not a lot of gore stuff. you can't feel disgust like other movies. you can just sit there and stay fine. you also don't have to worry to watch it on 3D.

casting of leading ladies: great! Io and Andromeda are perfect for the beautiful cast. i think Io can be the next Lara Croft. she looks like Anne Curtis in some angles by the way. :)

CLASH OF THE TITANS will be on Philippine theaters starting April 3. distributed by Warner Bros. Philippines.
