Rating:
PG

Clash of the Titans combines the heroes of Greek mythology with an all-star cast to tell the story of Perseus (Harry Hamlin) battling to save an imprisoned princess. Perseus falls in love with the Princess Andromeda (Judi Bowker), who has been betrothed to Calibos (Neil McCarthy), the son of the goddess Thetis (Maggie Smith). The princess has been imprisoned but Perseus manages to answer the convoluted riddle to free her. But before he can win her hand in marriage, the angry Thetis interferes and conspires to have the princess condemned to be fed to a sea monster, the Kraken. The only way Perseus can save her is to return with the head of Medusa and turn the monster into stone. With the help of Zeus (Laurence Olivier) and a kindly playwright, Ammon (Burgess Meredith), Perseus works his way through a series of trials to find Medusa. Director Desmond Davis uses stop-motion animation created by special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen to create this mythological world.
