I saw the trailer for Clash of the Titans while watching the Olympics last night. Damn does it look bad. I was rooting for this one actually. I’m a big fan of Greek Mythology and I know there’s a whole bunch of liberties taken with the story of Perseus here, but this looks awful. After a second view at the trailor, I’m feeling the same way I do about Pirates of the Caribbean – make it super campy, or super violent. (Like 300). But you can’t have campy and dark together – it just doesn’t work.
Also, Liam Neeson does not make a believable Zeus. I’m interested to see how Ralph Fiennes plays Hades since we all know he does bad-ass so well as Voldemort.
I’ll probably go see. Might be the funniest movie I’ve seen Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
