Clash of The Titans 3D

I think by now, most of the people would had watched or at least heard of this movie. I had just watched it last night with a couple of friends and it's in 3D (which I don't really felt much of it). Anyway, let's go back 30 years ago in 1981 where the movie first came out. I can still remembered watching it more than 10 years back in TV and later in VCD of the original version. Damn it does bring back memories and comparing how the effect looks like in 1981 and now, there's a massive improvement. But how does the story goes? Well let's see.

 (for those who didn't saw the original version of the movie)

The new version stars Sam Worthington (from Avatar) as Perseus, the son of Zeus (Liam Neeson). If you don't know whose Zeus is, well let's just say that he murdered his father and together with his two brothers, Poseidon and Hades (Ralph Fiennes), ruled Olympus. Poseidon as all know, is the God of the Sea while Hades after being tricked by Zeus was banished to rule the underworld for all eternity. All gods holds their immortality by being worship by humans but as time goes by, human decided that they are better off with themselves rather than worshiping the gods and this upsets Zeus. Hades managed to tricked Zeus in believing him and letting unleash terror on earth so that human will start worshiping him again.

Perseus is half human half god (demi-god) and is being (or rather forced) into this journey to save the city of Argos. The king & queen of Argos managed to upset Zeus and Hades decided to gave them 10 days to either sacrifice their daughter, Andromeda or he (Hades) will released his most feared creation called the Kraken. So the story tells how Perseus with help from some soldiers, Jins and another cursed human. Some cool fighting scenes where they fight the giant scorpion in the dessert to the part Perseus cut off Medusa's head (again) and final confrontation with the Kraken itself. Boy wins and saved the world from the god. So what's new?

I was really looking forward to this movie but it's a bit upsetting as I was comparing with the original movie and other than the spectacular effects, nothing much blew my  mind. I mean, if you are just gonna show us how SFX evolved from 30 years ago, and by making another mythology movie bout it, don't waste time. I wished for better story lines and more dramatic/epic fight scenes but to no avail. Anyway, it's still a good movie to watch altogether with you haven't saw the original one. And where's the 3D? I think my highlight of 3D special effect would be the Chinese sub-titles at the bottom. (Rating: 4.0 out of 5.0)
