Trivia

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.

Quotes

Io: The oldest story ever told are written in the stars. Stories of time before man and gods, when Titans ruled the earth. The Titans were powerful but their reign was ended by their own sons: Zeus, Poseiden, and Hades. Zeus convinced his brother Hades to create a beast so strong it could defeat their parents. And from his own flesh Hades gave birth to an unspeakable horror... the Kraken. Zeus became king of the heavens. Posieden, king of the sea. And Hades, tricked by Zeus, was left ...

Juvenile adventure-fantasy about the valiant Perseo who undergoes a perilous journey to free Andromeda from monstrous Kraken
8 May 2011 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Imaginative spectacle based on mythological Greek legends spectacularly realized by Louis Leterrier and formerly adapted (1981) by Desmond Davis and Ray Harryhausen. Exciting fantasy derived from Greek mythology about a valiant and handsome hero (Sam Worthington as Perseo , role formerly played by Harry Hamlin ), the mortal son of God Zeus (Liam Neeson whose character was interpreted by Laurence Olivier) who must face a variety of extraordinary challenges in pursuit threatening Medusa and kill Kraken. Winsome Perseus, the son of Zeus , must save the gorgeous Princess Andromeda (Alexa Davalos in the role previously acted by Judi Bowker) who is daughter of Cassiopea ( Polly Walker) . As the son of Zeus embarks on a risked voyage along with a brave group (Mads Mikkelsen , Vincent Regan, Luke Evans and Gemma Arterton), all of them go to stop the underworld ruled by Hades and its minions from spreading their evil to heavens as well as the earth. Trouble appears in the shape of monstrous Calibos (Jason Flemyng in double role also as Acrisius) and the God Hades (Ralph Fiennes). In order that the horrible Kraken not be released, virginal Andromeda has to be sacrificed . Then Perseus fights giant scorpions , gargolas , monsters and searches for the three Stygian witches , confronts the snake-haired Gorgon and slays her ; her head is the only mean that can defeat the sea giant called Kraken . Perseus attempts to rescue the beautiful maid from the terrifying massive monster freed by Poseidon .

Overwhelming fantasy based on Greek legends with breathtaking special effects in computer generator and 3D . However I miss the primitive creatures made by the pioneer and maestro of great illusion Ray Harryhausen and his assistant Jim Danforth in the first and classic version directed by Desmond Davies . Extraordinary support cast playing the Mount Olympus Gods as Zeus -Liam Neeson- , Hades -Ralph Fiennes- and many others . However , everyone are overshadowed pretty much by the spectacular but excessive special effects . The FX technicians bring to life mythological monsters as the ferryman , Pegasus , giant scorpions , Medusa , the Kraken and several others . Well filmed in Llanddwyn Island, Anglesey, Wales, Longcross Studios, Chobham Lane, Longcross, Surrey, Newborough, Anglesey, Wales, Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, England,Shepperton, Surrey, England, UK ,Snowdonia National Park, Snowdonia, Gwynedd, Wales, UK and Spain : Lanzarote , Gran Canaria, Teide National Park, Tenerife, Tenerife, Canary Islands and in co-operation with Mediterranean film facilities . Mind-numbing musical score by Ramin Djawadi and colorful cinematography by Peter Menzies. The motion picture is professionally directed by Louis Leterrier who directed successes as The incredible Hulk 2, Danny the dog and Transporter . Rating : Good , well worth watching .
