Entertaining action/adv flick based on Greek Mythology [specifically the story of Perseus, mortal son of Zeus]. Decent performance by Sam Worthington [as Perseus] ...his role didn't seem to require much acting though, and he kind of reminded me of his role as 'Marcus' in "Terminator: Salvation" at times. Worthington's performance as the hero had a little too many cliches, but I guess that was to be expected. Great performances by Ralph Fiennes [as Hades], Liam Neeson [as Zeus], Pete Postlethwaite, Jason Flemyng, and Mads Mikkelsen. Good performances by Alexa Davalos and Gemma Arterton. I saw it in 3D and I must say that it didn't enhance the experience that much...3D is highly overrated, it's fine in 2D. The style of the film reminded me of "The Chronicles of Riddick" a little bit at certain points [come to think of it...Alexa Davalos starred in that as well.] but I digress. Overall it wasn't as EPIC as I wanted it to be and the ending was pretty anti-climactic, but it was entertaining for the most part.
Rating: 3 out of 5
