Alas, it all comes off as hit and myth, mainly due to our leaden, buzz-cut hero, Perseus (Avatar’s Sam Worthington, no Harry Hamlin), and zero sparks of heavenly-body chemistry or humour. Audiences will flock to the movie for its colossal effects, and even if this Medusa slinks around better than Ray Harryhausen’s stop-motion stunner from the first go-round, she’s still trapped in a video game. The action is cleanly cut, however, and some giant scorpions steal the show.
