DVD Review: Clash Of The Titans

Men-in-skirts action-adventures, girlfriend-moistening rom-coms and visions of Broken Britain all in the trailers - then reviewed - below...

Clash Of The Titans (Blu-ray, DVD)

Aussie rent-a-hero Sam Worthington is reluctant demi-god Perseus, trying to save Argos – no, not the shop – from angry gods and tentacled sea monster the Kraken.

Joined by immortal aide Io (this summer’s all-action-girl Gemma Arterton), he embarks on a plodding adventure.

Budget CGI can’t compete with the dodgy-but-scary stop-motion baddies of the original, while even Skins seductress Kaya Scodelario can’t improve the less-than-titanic final fight.

Not sure why they’re bothering with a sequel…

STICK IT ON THE POSTER:
Gemma Arterton’s never looked hotter, but the action’s lukewarm.

 

Remember Me (Blu-ray, DVD)
Brilliant, more Robert Pattinson! Don’t get tricked by the missus. It’s not an 'edgy' rom-com with cool twists. There are only sad ones that will result in tears. The pasty Brit embarks on a relationship with a fellow whiner, before a big ending. The only positive: his dodgy acting may convince Hollywood not to bother once the Twilight gravy train grinds to a halt.

Shank (Blu-ray, DVD)
A gritty, if massively flawed, urban UK movie that wants to be the new Kidulthood. Sadly, it doesn’t get anywhere near those levels, despite Kaya Scodelario sexing things up very nicely. Set in a near-future, gang-ridden, decaying London (can’t imagine it was too tricky finding authentic locations), this is nowhere near as slick or cool as it thinks it is.
