Clash of the Titans


Perseus (Harry Hamlin) becomes a pawn in the game between two gods, one of which is his father, Zeus (Laurence Olivier).Ā Greek mythology is the stuff of this fantasy adventure where gods behave just like men (i.e. badly). It was the last movie Ray Harryhausen worked on as a visual effects artist; his efforts may seem much too dated now, but they are an imaginative reminder of similarly-themed films likeĀ Jason and the ArgonautsĀ (1963). Hamlin is wooden in the lead and some of the ingredients are just too sillyā€¦ but itā€™s a guilty pleasure.
