In Clash of the Titans, Worthington is Russell Crowe 2.0.

If you don’t remember the film or the myth, not to worry: there are titans, they clash.

SHOOT: "It’s still unclear if he can act" says it all...

Clash of the Titans (Remake)

First among men or at least heartthrobs is Sam Worthington, who, as Perseus, comes equipped with the same buzz cut and sexy scowl that served him well during the live-action sequences in “Avatar.” That glower suggests that Mr. Worthington either believes he’s in a significant movie or worries he’s made a huge career mistake; either way, he’s the latest big-screen attraction to strap on a sword and sandals to vanquish the box office. (He’s Russell Crowe 2.0.) It’s still unclear if he can act (Mr. Crowe certainly can when he’s in the mood), but he holds the screen effortlessly while the likes of Polly Walker (as Cassiopeia) and Mads Mikkelsen (Draco, a warrior), do their best to fill in the holes with their charisma and marvelous faces.
