Clash of the Titans: Grimy

I just saw Clash of the Titans and I feel like I need a shower! Much grittier and grimier than the original. Everything except the gods' temple on Mount Olympus is all broken and twisted and ugly and old. The special effects are of course much more impressive than the original, but the action scenes have a little too much what-the-hell-is-going-on back-and-forth quick cutting. And why does Perseus (Sam Worthington) still have his Avatar buzzcut? He's a mariner, not a Marine! He's the only one in the whole movie who isn't all hairy. Also there's Collapse ). The actors certainly do a fine job.

But still... grime and grit, ew ick.
