Clash of the Titans

Once again, concept beats execution.  Largely filled with computer generated imagery, Clash of the Titans tells an old story - a story that has stood the test of time, literally thousands of years old - and makes it boring.  It looks great but who really cares?

Six weeks earlier, I had seen Percy Jackson and the Olympians - The Lightning Thief. That movie told almost exactly the same story - Percy Jackson was a contemporary Perceus - and told it with some style.  Percy Jackson wasn't a great movie either, but its fun quotient was a bit higher (can you say Uma Thurman as Medusa?).  You can safely skip both Percy Jackson and Clash of the Titans for home viewing.
