'Clash of the Titans' [Blu-ray]
(Liam Neeson, Sam Worthington, Gemma Arterton, Mads Mikkelsen, Alexa Davalos, Ralph Fiennes, et al / 2-Disc Blu Ray+DVD / NR / 2010 / Warner Bros.)

Overview: In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth.

Blu-Ray: Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Sam Worthington! The next great action hero ... who can act! I mentioned in my 'Terminator Salvation' review that there was something special about this guy and this remake of 'Clash of the Titans' should solidify that! This is saying a lot considering how short on character development this film is. Imagine if a lousy actor played Perseus? This would've been a complete bomb.

'Clash of the Titans' is an adrenaline rush! Fans of the original should love this. It follows the myth of Perseus and the Gods of Olympus with some new twists along the way. The short of it is simple. Perseus (Worthington) is the son of Zeus (Neeson)and as the last remaining demi-god the city of Argos looks to him to save them.

Fueled with rage against Hades (Fiennes) for killing his earthly adopted parents, Perseus takes up the quest to stop the revenge of the gods. The task, capture the head of Medusa, kill the Kraken and send Hades back to the underworld! Sounds like fun? It is! A complete romp and action fest.

Indeed, there are many words of wisdom that you listen to, as many different people and gods teach the young Perseus, and it makes for an enjoyable, social setting that the original also had. Help comes unexpected, and in mysterious ways, as is the way of the ancient gods and the new version is successful in recreating it for a new generation.

You will meet new characters, which will become a heroic party, that reminded me more of Krull, more than the original clash of the titans. There goal is worthy, and there are many heroe's, and not all of them carry swords. Andromeda is a hero for the sacrifice she was willing to make.

And in a way, the soldiers who decimate the homages to the gods are heroe's also, because the dared challenge a god and stood for what they believed in.

However, the movie does fail on one level, and it is an important one: character development. The storyline is wonderful and the great actors in this film do much with little. If only they would have spent 15 extra minutes on the band of soldiers and the royal family of Argos, we might have found a little more emotional investment. You just don't care when people start dying and that is never good.

All in all, this movie still packs a wallop and is totally enjoyable! Even with it's flaws, this movie is pure entertainment and a wonderful remake of a classic! [AS] This is a Widescreen Presentation (2.40:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:

Maximum Movie Mode: Harnessing the Gods, with Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, and director Louis Leterrier and enhanced picture-in-picture; enhanced scene breakdowns; enhanced VFX breakdowns; on-the-spot vignettes; close-up views of the Kraken, the Scorpiochs, Medusa, stuntwork, filming locales, and more!
