Clash of the Titan’s Full Movie
The picture “Clash of the Titans”, being a remake of the film of the same name, arouses sincere interest that only a few places of action and the names of the characters have in common with the original. Otherwise, we have two films that are completely different in their atmosphere. At the same time, it should be noted that the modern version, having received the support of the audience, turned out to be so in demand that the story was continued in the sequel.
A decade after the heroic victory over the monstrous Kraken, Perseus – a demigod, the son of Zeus – is trying to live the quiet life of a village fisherman and a single father, raising his ten-year-old son Gelius.
At the same time, a power struggle begins between the titans and the gods. The Olympians, who have lost their former devotion to the people, lose control over the prison in which the titans and their leader Kronos, the fierce parent of Zeus, Hades and Poseidon, are imprisoned. Long ago, this trinity overthrew his father, leaving him to rot in the depths of Tartarus, in a dungeon located in the depths of the underground world teeming with caves.
Perseus cannot ignore the call of blood when Hades and the divine son of Zeus, Ares, betray the gods and agree with Kronos to seize Zeus. The power of the Titans grows, while the power of the King of the Gods is weakening, and the forces of Hades are looking for a way to break through to earth.
Enlisting the support of the warrior queen Andromeda, the demigod and son of Poseidon Argenor and the outcast god Hephaestus, Perseus bravely embarks on a perilous journey through the underworld to save Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save humanity.
