Trivia:

The mechanical owl Bubo from
Clash of the Titans has a cameo as the toy Perseus picks up before he leaves on his quest. According to the filmmakers, the cameo was widely debated as to whether to keep it in the film or not. It was eventually decided to keep it in the film to please the fans of the original film.

Quotes:

[first lines]

Io:
The oldest story ever told are written in the stars. Stories of time before man and gods, when Titans ruled the earth. The Titans were powerful but their reign was ended by their own sons: Zeus, Poseiden, and Hades. Zeus convinced his brother Hades to create a beast so strong it could defeat their parents. And from his own flesh Hades gave birth to an unspeakable horror…



User Review

Occasionally entertaining, yet ultimately hollow

Rating: 4/10


Ah, the pre-summer action movie. Admittedly, due to word of mouth from
those who had attended earlier screenings of the film, my expectations
for Clash of the Titans were fairly low. On top of that, many of the
initial casting choices appeared to be somewhat suspect. So, what's my
verdict? Well, I didn't hate it…

The plot of Titans is extremely straightforward – practically to a
fault. Often, the film acts as though it's in a hurry, attempting to
get from one action sequence to the next as quickly as possible. The
scenes that occur in between each of these battles ultimately amount to
nothing more than brief segments of exposition delivered by Perseus'
"guardian angel" of sorts, Io (Gemma Arterton). So, while the film
never really drags, it feels very soulless.

And while we're on the subject of these action sequences, none of them
end up being particularly memorable. About half of them are so frenetic
to the point where they're almost disorienting – honestly, I'm glad
that the 3D screenings were sold out this time 'round. On top of that,
there's virtually no character development outside of Worthington's
character (and even he isn't all that likable), so I never really cared
about the outcome of these action sequences either. Also, as I
mentioned earlier, my biggest fear with Titans was in regards to the
acting, and thankfully, most of the cast do what's expected of them.
Neeson's Zeus aside, none of the performances truly stand out, but
they're nothing cringe-worthy either.

Ultimately, Clash of the Titans ends up being a forgettable piece of
entertainment with a couple of gaping plot holes, hit-or-miss action
sequences, and performances that fail to leave much of an impression.
It's not horrible – just hollow.
