Movie Review: Clash of the Titans
Not much has changed since the last Clash of the Titans but they sure did make it better. In both versions Perseus has to rescue Andromeda, before she has to marry a monster. Zeus has set up a few tests for Perseus on the way, like capturing Pegasus, defeating Medusa, and finding a way to kill the dreaded Kraken along with other things which were sure to kill everyone he was with.
The newly improved film brings the Gods, monsters and even heaven and hell into life in a whole new perspective. I was glad they kept the same elements including the three witches which can only see with one magic eye they all share, the sneaky Medusa and of course our favorite Kraken. However, why did they poke fun at Bubo? One would think a remake would pay homage to the original film, however this one did not.
Nonetheless, Gods coming to life and reeking havoc to mankind is always a plus in my book. I mean who wouldn't want to be on Zeus's side, or Hades? Moral of the story: Be what you want to be, not what someone tells you. You are your own destiny maker.
