Clash Of The Titans (1981)

Rating: ***
Special Effects: Ray Harryhausen
Cast: Harry Hamlin, Burgess Meredith, Ursula Andress, Laurence Olivier

Another effects laden fantasy piece from stop-motion master Ray Harryhausen. The story surrounds Perseus's (Harry Hamlin) quest to win the hand of the lovely Andromeda with the aid of some magical armor and the winged horse, Pegasus. Greek mythology gets a little mangled, but it's all in good fun and Harryhausen's effects look great. In particular, the battle with snake-haired Medusa is VERY cool. Lots of fun.
