Clash of the Titans (2010)

One doesn't exactly get you what you pay for here, rather you get what you expect. I wasn't expecting to be blown away or inspired to be a better person when I shelled out my $10.50. What I wanted was for an effective adaptation or upgrade on a childhood classic. Now I'm not suggesting that the original is a classic just that it holds a special place in my movie viewing history.
The acting was acceptable and the action scenes where impressive at times. Avatar's Sam Worthington once again plays the reluctant hero, or in this case demi-god. Anyone could have pulled off this role as the script didn't demand much. It was fun too see some of my favourites like Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes. Fiennes was more of a standout, as the villain's role often proves.
So if you have some tolerance for goofiness and can enjoy well crafted action on its own, you should find some pleasure with this remake.
