The myth of Perseus is one of the better known stories from Greek mythology. The 1981 movie Clash of the Titans is an adaptation of this myth. Harry Hamlin does an excellent job of portraying the young and bold Perseus. Burgess Meredith also does a fine performance as the poet Ammon who serves as a mentor to Perseus. Though the special effects may be a bit dated they go a long way in making this movie fun to watch. Parents and teachers who desire to show this film as part of Greek mythology lessons should be aware it contains two or three scenes of brief nudity. Still, Clash of the Titans is a great story of romance and adventure from Greek mythology.
