DVD: Clash of the Titans, For retail & rental (Warner)
Sunday 25 July 2010
This CGI-heavy remake of the 1981 adventure film has Perseus (Sam Worthington) battling monsters, while the ridiculously wigged and made-up gods of Olympus (Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes) look on.
It's a well-designed theme park ride, with breathtaking special effects, but it gallops from giant scorpions to Stygian witches without a pause, so you can barely distinguish one of Perseus's sidekicks from another before they become Gorgon fodder.
