So I’m watching this movie again on Sunday with Rachel and her uncle. I loved this movie. This movie was made for teenage boys or people looking for popcorn fun, and cool action. Period.
I have made many mistakes in the past, harshly reviewing movies that are simply not for me, mostly Dreamwork’s stuff. I realized this now. Dreamworks movies weren’t MADE for me, or my dad. They where made for children. So, should these movies be reviewed harshly?
From NOW ON I will review movies from a critic point of view AND from a target audience point of view. Im surprised no ne has ever told me to do so.
As the action movie with cool scenes, it was SPECTACULAR! So cool, and thrilling. Definitely worth the money and time.
I’m a big fan of music in movies, remember how cool the rock music made the trailer of Clash of the Titans? I fit so well, just like the beautiful music played while the good flying scenes happened in How To Train Your Dragon. Music thats LOUD, FITS, AND EXCITES. I hate it when movies have music that doesnt fit the scenes, and you can barely hear it. Or doesnt excite or contribute to whatever feel the movie has.
Imagine the Clash of the Titans trailer with slow music sang by Justin Timberlake. Exactly.
Well the action in this movie would have been 4x better with better music, thats all.
This movie did a GREAT job of making the Gods seem real, I’ve always said ‘Besides Morgan Freeman… God will always look lame in movies” but the Gods in this movie looked BELIEVABLY good. Before you watch the movie you must KEEP IN MIND that in Greek Mythology, Gods show up a second after someone pisses on their church, unlike our gods who hold grudges for thousands of years. It’s no the movie, in Greek religion their Gods where EVERYWHERE all the time.
As a critics point of view though, I have to admit that this movie had so many plot holes, it deserves about 7 YouTube “How It Should Have Ended” videos.
Sam Worthington gives his usual stale performance, I mean the guy is a seriously horrible actor. He’s good at the violent savage roles. Like the scenes in Avatar in which he had to scream in battle rage, but when it comes to civil scenes with conversations, the guy is painful to look at.
Please don’t watch it in 3D, we all know that this movie was released weeks late because they rushed 3D to it, and everyone HATES the 3D in this movie, obviously, because it was sloppy.
Once you settle yourself in the “This is a fantasy, and in this fantasy, God (Zeus,Hades) is apparently EVERYWHERE all the time” mindset, youll be okay. Do NOT forget this is Greek Mythology!
I want more of these made (and they will, 2 more at least) and this movie had plot holes and some bad performances and some great ones… but overall what highlighted the movie was the amazing action and cool villains.
