This movie as I found out prior to watching it is a remake of the 1981 film of the same title. I’m not that thrilled to watch it. I guess I’m just interested with all the effects and see Sam Worthington – his follow up film after Avatar which shown last year and became the top grossing film in history.
I actually enjoyed the film though I’m not really jumping off my seat. The visuals are ok –nothing spectacular. There’s nothing that exciting about it and nothing to rave about. It sure sound bordering to being boring but it’s really not. The film is about 2 hours and you’d actually enjoy the visuals and it’s fast pacing. Watching it is like going to the grocery store with the exact list of what you’d be buying. You’d even think that Sam Worthington who played the son of Zeus, Perseus actually looked like Jake (his character from Avatar)- i mean with the same hair and same demeanor. It’s like he did the film while making Avatar.
