We saw the first Clash of the Titans movie (the one with the clockwork owl) on our honeymoon many years ago. The new one has moved things on a bit. The clockwork owl has been replaced by Gemma Atherton (something of a step up I reckon, although number one wife was less convinced) and we now have a lot of CGI. The story remains broadly the same, and is none the worse for that.
There is plenty of derring-do from the good guys and Ralph Fiennes, who seems to be cleaning up in ultimate bad guy roles, does a very nice “Voldermort with better hair” kind of act as Hades. The funniest bits are when we are at home with the gods, whose exploration of aluminium foil based clothing has to be seen to be believed.
If you want to see a big dumb action deity powered movie, a sort of “Transformers with Myths” then you will not be disappointed. I wasn’t.
