- Clash of the Titans came out when I was 10 years old. It was quite possibly one of my all time favorite childhood movies (next to Star Wars).
I'm gonna give you my 3 word assessment of the 2010 re-tread of Clash of the Titans.
IT WAS FUN.
Yup. Fun. It could have easily 'sucked' (and based on what some of you have said after you saw it, it did)...but to me it was a blast.
The basic elements were the same, but the best part of this was there were only a few times in the whole movie where I found myself trying to remember how the story went in the original. The update had a good feel...they kept the whole reluctant hero vibe...and they even resurrected an old friend from the original (Who? I won't tell you who- you have to see it on your own to figure out who).
Most of the characters were the same. Some were shifted around, others were brand new.
But enough of 81 vs. 10.
The point is, I had fun in this movie. I saw it in 2D because I know that was their intent (and it was only sent back for the 3D overhaul after the success of Avatar). 3D is the new bullet-time...but I digress.
Point is, I had fun. Which is why I dug the first one so much almost 30 years ago...it was fun.
And I felt like a kid watching it.
Which is always good when you're watching a movie like that.
What's great to me is they knew what they were making...they were re-making a cult classic. The original is no great piece of epic cinema...but it was fun. The movie posters should pretty much sum it up.
After that, you'll have to go see it and judge for yourself (but remember...have fun!)
