The movie- review:
Clash of the Titans 2010 is a remake of the most delightful film taken in the year 1981. The film is about the story of Perseus and his efforts to save Andromeda, the helpless princess. This movie shares the same title and characters like Perseus, Zeus and Andromeda. However, the similarities stop there. Clash of the Titans 2010 is about the story of Perseus, who does not aware that his father is father. He is caught in the middle of a battlefield, where the soldiers of Argos and the gods fight with each other. The soldiers ruin Zeus statue and immerse it under the ocean, this cause the underworld lord Hades to come up. Hades kills Perseus family, leaving him alone. Queen Cassipeia of Argos claims that her daughter is more divine than gods. Hades challenges them. During solar eclipse, they need to sacrifice the princess to the Kraken or the city will be destroyed. The fate of the city is associated with Perseus ambition to take revenge. He departs Argos to defeat the Kraken. The story sounds much like original. However, the remake did not give us the feeling that we were watching a classic story.
In the older version, the special effects are outdated. However, the latest version failed, because Perseus character focused only on revenge. In the original, Perseus fell in love with the princess and she too loved him. The major ambition was love and not revenge. Hence, the reasoning and charm are lost in the remake.
Clash of the Titans is available as a three disc set. It is packed in a blue case with a slipcover. The 3D version and 3D version are available in the Blu-ray discs. The third disc features the DVD version of the movie.
Warner Brothers had rushed the movie to cash in the 3D fever caused by Avatra. The theatrical release was full of inconsistencies like lack of depth in scenes. Some scenes seem to be appeared in 2D. It gives a feeling that we were watching the film through a window. Overall, it was a mess. Blu-ray 3D release was an improved version of the awkward 3D movie. Warner Brothers put forth some efforts into this release. There is a great sense of depth throughout the movie. Lack of ghosting is another impressive feature.
Apart from 3D, it suffers from some problems like frequent lens flare and edge enhancement.
Clash of the Titans 3D boasts of the DTS High definition Master audio 5.1 track. The audio is awesome. You would enjoy scenes like the final battle and the demolition of Zeus statue. Dialogue is very clear and is not surpassed by the surrounding effects.
Blu-ray 3D includes deleted scenes
A short video describing the work of Sam Worthington is included. An alternate ending is also included exclusively.
