When two teenage boys take a teenage girl on a cross country adventure, & all he's thinking about is saving his mum, you know it's a kids movie. Who knew that Hollywood & Hell were the same place? A few interesting concepts but a bit below my age level I'm afraid.
CGI lacks a bit and I couldn't get used to Pierce Brosnan as a half horse-half man. Just looked wrong! It's more suburban than Harry Potter but not as supernatural either, so maybe better for younger audiences.
Was a pretty good movie.... then I read the book.... and now it seems like a pretty average movie. If you've read the book then you'll probably be disappointed. All in all- a pretty good movie
i loved this,nearly didnt recognise Sean Bean,much better looking now.One of the best i have seen about the Greek Gods.Wish they would make a second one
Very entertaining movie. Story line a little unbelievable but the special effects are good. Enjoyable to watch.
Not only did the kids love this, us adults did to....really, really enjoyable movie.
What a great movie, why hasn't there been more talk about it?
Excellent and exciting kids' movie. Quite Harry Potter-esque.
haven't watched it yet guys
My family really enjoyed watching this movie. Good story line.
A very clever concept that went maybe a little too Disnet 'tween market. Still, some great actors in supporting roles, and good fun for the young'ns.
It's not brilliant but it's good. 8 year old kids would like it.
I really enjoyed this movie that would appeal to children from 8-9 right up to the 16-17 that are young at heart and would enjoy something that is not about their adoloesence and heavy relationships. Rise to the challenge just like percy rose to his! Can't wait for the sequel!
I turned this off in frustration after 45 mins. After reading some of the other reviews maybe I should have stuck with it. It lost me....not sure if it is a teen or grown up movie. LOL at Brosnan being a centaur. Drool at Sean Bean. Maybe I'll watch it when I'm in an appropriate mood.
this was also a great favorite in the house ...
was watched by all ...great effects
Very good story and movie
This was an awsome movie. The whole family loved it.
a huge rip off of the 1981 clash of the titans but still enjoyable, favourite scene when they were high on the flowers :P
Great family movie. Clash of the Titans meets Harry Potter.
I agree with the previous reviews. This is a well thought out
Fantastic movie for older kids - ours loved it, from the 5yo to the 12yo - and so did we! Great modern tweaking of the traditional Greek mythologies.
Good movie,like the battle gods.
Good entertainment in this fantasy with realistic SFX. Especially great for teens because the characters the viewer follows through the story line are teens. Pierce Brosnan plays his most unusual role in this and Liv Ulman is playing in a role more bizarre than the one she played in her Batman sequal and her super hero role.
Very exciting movie!
if your into sci fi, its a must see
Clash of the titans set in present times, for those who like this type of movie you will love the action and special effects, recommended
Was expecting so much more from the sneak peaks from previews. Very disjointed for the first half hour or so. seemed like producers were trying to give us too much info quickly and my younger children ( 11yrs) couldn't work out what was happening or why. later the movie seemed to move at a better pace but overall was disappointing. story line does not flow easily if you are not familar with basic knowledge of movie. Pierce Brosnan seemed out of place in his role as well. seemed like a cheap copy of effects from Narnia and Harry Potter.
Really enjoyed this one. Good movie with a fun story, characters and effects. Fun veiwing for kids and adults.
wow... this blew my mind... what an excellent movie, with much deeper meaning than at first sight (viewing): the way to hell is country music, gambling and Hollywood!!
oh yeah excellent movie for kids and kid at heart alike...loved it!
Not as good as the book, but an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.
I'm a big kid (from 40 years ago or more ago) and I liked it!! Contains great acting from young Logan Lerman and typical racing plot (jumping from scene to scene) of Chris Columbus. It was an oasis in the desert of February movie releases in cinemas. The older actors (especially the Brits) ham it up like a piece of Shakespeare which is like the old Greek myth and Roman gladiator movies of the 50's and 60's. While it loosely adapts the bedtime story of the book for 8-13 year olds, the story has been updated or changed for a broader demograhic of 8 to 80 yo's.
Look - I really liked this one. I don't have any kids and still really enjoyed it - a bit of escapism and unrealistic save-the-world themes for a Saturday night was great!
Kids liked this movie. Can't compare to the book. overall good entertainment.
