The Pitch: All hell breaks loose (literally) and Zeus has to convince his son Perseus to save the world.

What It Really Is: Better than Clash of the Titans; not as good as Remember the Titans. There are a lot of fun special effects to gawk at and monsters to see, but when the action dies down, you might fall asleep. The problem: Perseus is a boring character. Imagine if he were cocky like Wolverine, dark and brooding like Batman or witty like Spider-Man? Instead we get a hero who makes Aquaman look like the life of the party. Zeus (Liam Neeson) and Hades (Ralph Fiennes) once again steal the show. Had the movie only been about these two characters, we’d add another 78 stars to the review. As for the plot? Eh...Perseus has to find something and then do something and then everything goes ka-bloom! And the movie is about fatherhood...and stuff.

How Many D’s Do You Need: Stick with the 2D version. The 3D effects only pop in the beginning and when there’s smokey ash floating about.  

Who’s It For: Fans of the original; those who can’t wait for the good summer movies; angry mythology and folklore majors.
