Despite the mythological nature of this film, it draws heavily on actual Minoan (Crete, approx. 2700-1450 BC) archeology for its props and costuming. The characters' long, curled hair is seen in palace frescoes from Knossos and other sites. The tiered dresses of the dancing girls in Argos' palace are PG-13 versions of the Snake Goddess figurines' costumes from the same palace site. With Andromeda's final costume, a nearly perfect replica of the Bee Pendant from Malia graces her neck; the only difference is that the movie version is constructed from silver rather than the original gold.

The oldest story ever told are written in the stars. Stories of time before man and gods, when Titans ruled the earth.

AWFUL remake. Avoid this crud and watch the original!
If you want to see Clash of the Titans with a compelling narrative, good creatures, good action sequences, and a SUPERB cast, watch the 1981 original. It may be a little dated, and some of the effects are certainly old-fashioned by today's standards, but it has something the remake doesn't even come close to achieving: - Class!
If you are brain-dead, have a limited attention span, are totally ignorant of (and have no interest in) ancient Greek mythology, and basically just want lots of standard quality CGI, one-dimensional characters, and a plot dumbed-down to the point that there is no longer anything there, then watch the remake; a mindless, soulless, travesty that insults the intelligence of the viewer, and does everything it can to destroy all that was good about the original.
The director has publicly claimed to be a fan of the original, but this seems very unlikely based on his so-called homage featuring the mechanical owl from the 1981 film. His treatment of that classic prop/character could not have been more dismissive and insulting. It clearly shows how little he respected the original film, as do pretty much all of his other directorial choices.
A terrible and entirely pointless film.
