      Clash of the Titans sets the viewer up for grand expectations, but in the end leaves after only giving the viewer various disappointments. Truly CGI and action do not alone make a cinematic masterpiece.

      Being a remake of what many consider to be a cult classic, many reviews are based upon the comparison of this new movie to the original. I, however never have seen the original, so this enabled me to view the movie entirely without bias,

      and still the film fell short.

      The cast does its part well enough, at least making due with what it was given. Sam Worthington performs admirably as Perseus and the bright spots of the movie are Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes as Zeus and Hades respectively. Throw in some very powerful and attention grabbing special effects and monsters, and you would think you have the beginnings of a good film, sadly this is not the case.

      The movie ...

      • falls flat in its portrayal of the story and its characterization. Watching the film I could see that they were trying far too hard to smash a very long epic tale into a too small time slot. The scenes jump without much transition or interacting between the characters, almost like the movie is set up as “now this happens, and now this happens” like a tale told very quickly.

        Because of this jumping around there is no real

        formation of familiarity with the characters involved. The lines are limited by the extensive action scenes, and the bond between audience and character is not felt after the beginning scenes. Throw in the disappointment of the hyped up final battle (far too short, and nothing really happens) and you have a movie that looks nice, but is only a shell of what it could have been.

        The 3d doesn’t help at all either - it is more distracting than it is engulfing.
