Clash of Titans



Salam,

Last Friday went out with a friend to watch a movie..after several failed attempt to phone booking a ticket, we finally decided to go straight to the cinema...we went to TGV Bukit Raja Klang and watch 10.40pm show..cinema fully occupied and we only got seat 2nd row from the screen..huhuhu..but it doesn't stop us from enjoying the movie....

Clash of the Titans is a 2010 fantasy film which is a remake of the 1981 film of the same name.. This remake is very loosely based upon the Greek myth of Perseus. The film begins with a narration describing how the Olympians managed to overthrow their own creators, the Titans, through the aid of the Kraken, Hades's creation. After their fierce struggle, Zeus (Liam neeson) became the King of the Gods, his brother, Poseidon (Danny Huston), the Lord of the Seas, and their brother, Hades (Ralph Fiennes), tricked by Zeus to rule the sickening Underworld in chaos and terror.

The whole story is about the semigod ie. Perseus. The son of Zeus. His life journey and faith while trying to defend the city of Argos from war between the gods and human. The story started from Perseus childhood, from how he been rescued by the fisherman called Spyros who finally became his adopted father and raised him...

His journey began when his family died because of Hades and soldiers of Argos found him and take him back to the city. At the city he finally found that he were a semigod...a son of Zeus..
Hades kills the queen, and demands that Argos further pay for its insolence and vanity; in 10 days, the Kraken will be released, and if the princess Andromeda is not sacrificed, then Argos will be destroyed.

Initially, the Argives see Perseus as an agent of the gods and imprison him, but the king later seeks his help. A woman named Io (Gemma Arterton), who has been watching over Perseus his entire life, advises him that the only way to avenge the death of his family is to agree to the king's wishes and attempt to defeat the Kraken. Later, he is sent out with a small group of soldiers and the journey began....

I don't think I need to tell everything here..overall i gave 3.5/5 stars..I love the movie since kid I've been reading all Greek myth...so all the characters in the movie is not new for me, Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Pegasus, Medusa etc...the plot of the movie is simple...and happy ending...maybe some of the movie goer found that the movie kinda boring...so it is individual opinion...if u like to watch fantasy movie so I do suggest u guys to watch this movie...if not, u might be sleepin inside the cinema...hehehhe

Salam sayang
