    The new Clash isn't a cynical rehash. It has the flavor of a certain pre-CGI innocence.

    As it turns out, this Clash of the Titans was dated before it opened.

    Louis Letterrier's romp is at its best during its breakneck second half, when the 3D effects distract from the 2D protagonists and the risible dialogue is drowned out by the clash of steel and the gnash of pincers.

    Overall, it's a colossal waste of time.

    The latest example of Hollywood's belief that any terrible script can be made palatable if you just throw enough money and British accents at it.

    If you must see Clash of the Titans, be sure to see it in glorious 2-D.

    The 3-D technology tacked onto Clash of the Titans is like the coins put on the eyes of the dead for Charon, the Stygian ferryman. It's bribery to accept a lifeless lump.

    Clash of the Titans, which was directed by Louis Letterier, is strictly no-D.

    There's not a lot of humor in this new Clash -- not intentional, anyway.

    This Clash of the Titans isn't bad. It's just not particularly necessary.

    It doesn't soar (though Pegasus the winged horse is captivating).

    It's not as if "Clash of the Titans" is some popcorn masterpiece undone by the 3-D manipulations of its parent studio; the clunky script and blockbuster-in-a-box cluttered construction of it are probably just as lifeless in two dimensions.

    It isn't a train wreck -- a train wreck would be memorable.

    On July 10th, it will be released on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, and only then, I feel, will it truly come into its own.

    I don't say it's good cinema, although I recognize the craftsmanship that went into it. I don't say it's good acting, when the men have so much facial hair they all look like Liam Neeson. I like the energy, the imagination, the silliness.

    This remake is interesting mainly for the chance to see top-flight acting talent labor over dialogue so leaden you could cast bullets from it.

    Clash of the Titans is ancient Greece at its cheesiest.

    At the moment when Sam Worthington, trapped inside a giant scorpion, sword-hacked his way through the dorsal carapace and poked the upper half of his body through the opening as if it were a sunroof, I fell in love with Clash of the Titans.

    So tone deaf to the material is Leterrier that the spirit of the remake owes more to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen than a sword-and-sandal film. Bigger, louder, more expensive? All that, for sure. But better? Not by a long shot.

    Even more haphazardly plotted than the original, Clash of the Titans boasts 3D imagery and kinetic action that can't obscure a movie that is, finally, pretty flat.

    A roaring old-school action adventure for kids, with as many mythical beasts as a year at Hogwarts and a healthy dose of smiting without the crazed bloodlust of 300.

    There's not much here that will stick with you after the popcorn's gone. But as any ancient Greek could tell you, that's sort of the point.

    It's one supremely silly movie, but it's also a Razzies-ready hoot.

    If you're into Greek mythos, or action, or slightly cheesy (but knowing) humor, then this should prove an adequate source of entertainment.
