Synopsis:
Before history and beyond imagination! The mathinations of gods above and the fates of man and monsters here below play out in a 'Clash of the Titans'. Decades prior to the sensational 2010 version of the tale, Harry Hamlin took up sword and shield to play valorous Perseus, mortal son of Zeus (Laurence Olivier), who sets out to fulfill his destiny by rescuing beloved Andromeda from the wrath of goddess Thetis (Maggie Smith). Perils await Perseus time and again. And eye-filling thrills await viewers as stop-motion effects legend Ray Harryhausen unleashes snake-haired Medusa, fearsome Kraken, winged Pegasus, two-headed dog Dioskilos, giant scorpions and more.
Rejoice, fantasy fans: the movie gods gift us with adventure that's innovative, heroic, titanic.

Wonderful Load of Old Nonsense - Clash of the Titans review by AP

Spoiler Alert
28/01/2019

I imagine it's sacrilegious to say anything unappreciative of Ray Harryhausen, but I did find his special effects quite badly dated now. Mind you, there's plenty of modern CGI out there that doesn't work for me, especially big battle scenes using ridiculously large numbers of moving pixels or whatever. Nevertheless, I enjoyed watching old artistry at work and British mainstream classical actors managing to keep straight faces. Tim Piggott-Smith plays a rare role as a goody, and the young leads do a good job. The best of the monsters for me were the scorpions and Medusa, and the make up for Calibos is dramatic. Good stuff with a beer and a packet of popcorn.
