Clash of the Titans (1981): Movie Review

I’d love to say I loved this film, it’s a classic because Harry Harryhausen’s  last special effects film (or his last noteworthy one).  Unfortunately, after watching it again recently, it’s a little too stilted and stiff. Despite the acting talent, it feels a little too contrived and forced.  There doesn’t seem to be ‘any rip-roaring yarn’ to it all – ‘you shud watch this coz it’s important’ is about all that can be said about it.  Even the film buff though, will struggle to tell you why.

It’s an important by-gone era film but not a seminal work.  You wont gain much from watching it.

Teenagers {early} will love it.  It really helps capture your imagination, but those of us a little older will not gain much.

What others say:

“It holds no surprises, little suspense and never delves beyond the superficial. Yet excellent production, a fine cast and Harryhausen’s creatures make it an entertaining, if unsubstantial, episode in epic filmmaking.”
