The Myth Of Perseus Vs. The Movie Clash Of The Tit

658 words - 3 pages

Whenever you read a book and then go watch the movie, most of the time they don’t follow the same events in the same order. Just like in the myth “Perseus” and the movie, Clash of the Titans, the event are not all the same and some of the causes of the events are not the same either. Different things happen in the movies that are not even close to some of the things in the myth. These differences can either make the story better or just make it less interesting.

        The first difference from the movie, Clash of the Titans, and the myth “Perseus” is how Perseus was assigned to fight Medusa. During the myth “Perseus”, Polydects was going to get married to a princess. During this time it was custom to give gifts to the princess, but Perseus had no gifts such as a horse to give to the princess. So just out of know where, he said to the ...view middle of the document...

Perseus agreed with the idea and left for his journey to kill Medusa and get her head.

        

The second difference from the myth and the movie is that Perseus used different ways of transportation and took different routes on his journey to find Medusa. During the myth, Perseus was accompied with Athena and Hermes as a guide and to help. He and his crew used a boat to sail across the seas to find Medusa.
Then during the movie, Perseus picked some noble men to accompany him. He and his crew traveled along trails and up mountains to find Medusa. There were many obstacles for Perseus and his crew along the way, such as monsters and other evil creatures out to get him. Perseus used horses to steer him and his men along the long journey on land.

        The last difference of the movie, Clash of the Titans, and the myth “Perseus” is how Perseus stole the eye from the Three Gorgon Witches. In the myth, Perseus found the cave with the three Gorgons and watched them closely pass the eye back and forth. As he watched them, he decided to grab the eye when the time was right when none of the sisters were using it. Then with extreme quickness, Perseus grabbed the eye from the witches and none of them even knew it.

        During the movie Clash of the Titans, Perseus was given a mechanical owl by a god, Athena, to help him. When Perseus was in the cave with the three sister Gorgons, he decided to send the owl to go get the eye from the sisters. So at just the right time when neither witch was using the eye he would send his owl out to go

grab the eye. Perseus did with success and he then had the eye of the Three Gorgon Witches.

        Movies are not always like the story in a book. There are always going to be a difference and those differences can be appealing or not depending on what you and can be either excellent or terrible depending on the person.like. Just like in the movie, Clash of the Titans, and the myth “Perseus” the events are different
