ONE TO AVOID: CLASH OF THE TITANS (DVD) **
Jumping from one set-piece to another, the majority of which are poor compared to those witnessed in 1981's original masterpiece, Clash of the Titans is a pointless exercise proving once again that special effects can't replace a good story. Why they insisted on changing the plot to this mess is beyond me. Excluding the underused Pegasus and some monster scorpions, everything here is rushed and not very exciting. Shame, because I had high hopes for this remake seeing as the effects from 1981 are now very much dated. More fool me. The only blessing is in its short running time. Avoid.
