CLASH OF THE TITANS - 1981



CLASH OF THE TITANS - 1981


For 1981 this movie resembled a lot of the older epic adventures from the early 60's like the "Sinbad" or "Jason and the Argonaunts". Mainly because of the wonderful stop motion animation by Ray Harry Hausen, and the bad costumes probably rented from the same place the cast of "Star Trek" used.



Harry Hamlin as our hero Persus, he's terrible.... but so was rest of the cast. The best parts were the animation and Bubo the robot Owl, he was clearly based on R2D2 from the early "Star Wars", has the same sound effects and lovable personality and of course Bubo came to save the day.




No matter what, but whenever I see Burgess Meredith I can't help but picture The Penguin from the "Batman" TV show, his performance as Ammon looked like something out an "Strek Trek" episode. If you like to see a lot of old folks in togas you will love this movie as many of the Olympians are performed by a very mature group, like Sir Laurence Olivier as Zeus, Ursula Andress as Aphrodite and Maggie Smith as Thetis. Still "Clash of the titans" delivered a bedtime story that you won't want to miss.

I actually saw this for the first time a couple of weeks ago -- aside from the Harryhausen work, it was not good -- it really seemed to lack energy or enthusiasm
