Clash of the Titans 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Copy Review

Clash of the Titans 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Copy Review
 

Synopsis: In Clash of the Titans, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld. With nothing to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Liam Neeson) and unleash hell on earth. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, Perseus and his warriors will only survive if Perseus accepts his power as a god, defies fate and creates his own destiny.

Review: We've all seen the original Clash of the Titans from the 1980s.  It was recently released on blu-ray (which was a bit of a mistake) and with this remake its been revisited.  The classic stop-motion animation effects by the legendary Ray Harryhausen were cutting edge for the time.  Now, we get not only a high-definition experience with Clash of the Titans, but 3D as well!

We've seen our fair share of films that don't translate well into home 3D.  There was some controversy about the transfer of this film in the theater to 3D.  We didn't see it there, but here at home it certainly looks great.  The action is intense and definately accented well with the 3D effects.

This is one of those rare occasions when the original is overshadowed by the remake!  Clash of the Titans is definately one to own.

The special features on this set include: Maximum Movie Mode: Harnessing the Gods, with Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, and director Louis Leterrier and enhanced picture-in-picture; enhanced scene breakdowns; enhanced VFX breakdowns; on-the-spot vignettes; close-up views of the Kraken, the Scorpiochs, Medusa, stuntwork, filming locales, and more, Sam Worthington: An Action Hero for the Ages, Alternate ending: Perseus confronts Zeus on Mount Olympus and Additional scenes
