Clash of the Titans

April 19, 2010

I went to see “Clash of the Titans” Friday night, April 9, 2010.
I went as part of a meetup group. We were supposed to watch it and then discuss it afterward over a beer and some food.
Instead, only Michelle, the meetup organizer, and I showed up.
It was our first meeting, so a lot of our discussion related to who we were. However, we did get to discuss the movie as well.

One note:
There are two versions of the film, 2D and 3D. People who saw 3D version generally didn’t like it. People who saw the 2D version felt more positively about the film. We went to see the 2D version and this review is based on seeing it in 2D.

“Clash of the Titans” is a retelling of Greek Mythology. It tells the story of how humans must worship and fear the gods.
While proper worship does not ensure a good life, failure to worship may lead to gods’ anger, and defying the gods will almost certainly force gods’ wrath.

There are a few notable parts to this film. (It’s up to you to decide if they are good or bad qualities.)
1. Rugged, fighting men in skirts. If you like seeing men in skirts, this is definitely the film for you. Almost all the men wear skirts, but few with a skirt that makes it past the knee.
2. Greek mythology. Greek mythology can be interesting. It has gods behaving badly and demigods (half god, half human) beating up on gods.
3. Cheesy special effects.

Overall, I give this film a 5 out of 10. This film has a lot of cartoon-like fighting. If you like that, add one.
