A favorite from my childhood that inspired a life-long interest in mythology. Harryhausen at his best! The performances are not particularly special, but the movie captured my imagination 30 years ago, and it continues to delight.
After watching the Remake of "Clash of the Titans", which I liked, I decided to give the original a go. But I had to turn it off after 10 minutes: the special effects look absolutely laughable (even for 1981) and the actors are doing a horrible, horrible job!
I recommend not even to think about watching this flick!
