Awesome fun spectacle
22 June 2016 | by (Seattle, WA, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is pretty much what you get when Alexander Proyas saw Clash of the Titans (2010) and Wrath of the Titans (2012), and says to himself "What the hell is this? This isn't Harryhausen!" ... and then he goes off an makes a pitch-perfect film that pays homage to the classics - Clash of the Titans, Jason and The Argonauts, etcetera.

It's awesomely done, with fight scenes reminiscent of Wuxia films from the 1980s, a color palette that's sublime, and a sense of humor that shines through.

Ignore the critics. Just enjoy a damn fine movie that hits all the right spots to enjoy with a bucket of popcorn.

Bonus: It has zero product placement - which makes up for I, Robot.
