I saw it one and a half times (long story involving a guy who wouldn't shut up during the movie getting into a fight with my friend in the theater, so we were able to watch it again at the next showing and finish the movie) but overall I found it worthy for what it was trying to be: a violent, monster action movie spectacle. Likely, there will be complaints about the many changes they made from the original Clash of the Titans.

Full review (with SPOILERS) here:

Clash of the Titans is like the drunk at the end of the bar yelling "Fuck you, gods!" and starting a bar fight - an entertaining spectacle.

Thanks for the review John. It confirms what I had already suspected: This isn't Clash of the Titans, it's God of War.

this film was actually realy good, I liked the cameo of Bubo. I thought this had awesome effects and a more mythology feel to it then god of war does.



Dont say its not worth it, when you can sleep with no fear, that kind of time is worth any thing.- FFX

"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will release the Kraken."

Saw that on the Onion comments and thought it was hilarious.

I really liked it. I was worried that CGI would take away from the story, but the story was basic and moved along nicely. Some funny moments as well.

SPOILERS!!

The power went out during the intro and it re-started five minutes later, we got free passes though which was cool. I liked it, I am not a giant fan of the original, so I was cool with the re-telling. The scorpion fight at times looked too much CGI. The rest was pretty damn good to look at. I am not thrilled with a more emo Perseus instead of the wide eye dreamer in the first one as well as changing the love story. IO was hot though and it would have felt tagged on if he ended up with the princess who he meet for a total of five minutes. A lot more straight forward then the first one and I hope the DVD has more deleted scenes, felt it was a bit too short.

CHUD has a fascinating article about what was in the original Clash shooting script, what was changed in re-shoots and post, and what the original intent of the writers and director was:

I liked the theatrical version of Clash just fine for what it was, but I have to say, I'd love to have seen the movie as it was originally intended.

Maybe if there's enough clamor for it, some money will be tossed in towards a Director's Cut Blu-ray or something so we can see this version of Clash of the Titans as described in the article.

Two initial thoughts: 1) Genius. Ellen is a winning personality. As Idol is half game show, half judge showcase, she can work alongside Randy and Simon with gentle goofiness and wit. She changes the dynamic in a new way, a way that piques my curiosity.
