One of my earliest memories of the cinema was going to see the orginal version from 1981 with Harry Hamlin as Perseus, Lawerance Olivier as Zeus and Ray Harryhausen with his legendary clay animation, this movie is a shrine to my childhood I love this movie and every big holiday festive season it’s always shown on TV and im a suck a I watch it again and again. So when I heard it was going to be remade it was shock and horror but also curiousity.
Liam Neeson as Zeus, not bad, Sam Worthington as Perseus. I know sam worthington made a few things before Terminator Salvation but to me it was my first outing of him and in my eyes he never got off to the best of starts, so he has alot of convincing to do to make me say yeah, he was good, possibly Avatar will do that, who knows!? So this is just over 1 minute long, so zeus is in there, medusa!, giant scorpions, what else, mmm? 300 style fight scenes, monsters, dodgy love scenes,Kraken, yeah its looking ok, cmon sam prove us all wrong and be a good perseus. I recommend anyone who hasnt seen the original to watch it, its classic 1980’s fantasy movie.
