A title card says this King Arthur, grimly directed by Antoine Fuqua, is based on the latest research into the mythic past. Maybe so. But one can't help thinking the research that really counted was that into the more recent box-office charts.
This particular purchase was a birthday gift for our young adult Nephew. We viewed this movie, of course, prior to selecting it as a gift for him. Favorite actors such as Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes and the leading man of Avatar, Sam Worthington, were the motivating factors for our initial interest in this movie. Truly an action\/adventure movie which takes place during the era of the mythical Greek gods promises not to disappoint! No vulgarity whatsoever for the eyes nor the ears. However, there are some violent scenes which are non gratuitous in nature. Still parents must be the judge of how these scenes will affect their young children. We have watched our copy repeatedly. Our Nephew was thrilled with his gift as he had not yet seen this movie. However, he had heard a great deal about it from his friends and every comment was favorable. Over all, we highly recommend this movie.
Clash of the titans remains a classic and looks great in high definition.It comes package in a nice digibook with some great pictures and info from the film, the only thing i wish it didn't came dented on the side otherwise this is great for any fan of Ray Harryhausen films .
The movies came packaged very pooly, and 3 of the cases are cracked on the front side of the case. I did not open, so I am hoping the movies are not damaged as well. You would think that bubble wrap or something would have been in the box to keep them from bursting for we know how Christmas packages are handled during the holidays. I do so much shopping on line with wal-mart and this is the first bad experience I have had but very disappointed for they were Chistmas gifts, but as I said earlier, my family is not that picky but you could have come customers that would blow this out of the water. I would just give a head up warning to your packagers.
Scherfig shows a flair for comic melancholy ... as well as eccentric characters like Wilbur, who initially comes across as off-putting and self-obsessed, but later becomes, if not exactly warm, at least sympathetic.
