Movie Monday: Clash of the Titans
Posted by Rosepixie on December 28, 2009
This is a trailer that I saw in a theater for the movie Clash of the Titans.
This movie looks very pretty and the trailer shows that off really well. Great monster effects. But I have no idea what the plot is. I’ve never seen the original, and perhaps this is relying on me having done so, but clearly not everyone will have. It appears to me to be a weird mash-up of Greek myths focusing on those with strange monsters and from the trailer it looks like Liam Neeson is playing all the gods. I have no idea if either of those things are true, but that’s what I got from the trailer.
After watching it I was left feeling kind of confused. I felt like the movie was either selling a movie of nothing but pointless action and CG monsters or short-changing a movie with an actual plot of some kind. It got the people in the theater who were familiar with the original excited, but I was clearly not the only one who was confused. I think this trailer left a lot to be desired.
