CLASH OF THE TITANS (PG-13) 1.5 stars
PLOT In striving for a combination of grit and grandeur, director Louis Leterrier misses a chance to make the kind of camp classic that could have endured for generations. Instead, it's a muddled disappointment. What appeal the movie has comes from its two biggest-name stars. As Zeus, Liam Neeson struts around in a disco-inspired silver outfit that shines so brightly we can barely see his face. As his brother Hades, Ralph Fiennes swoops up from the underworld in his own cloud of dirty smoke, like an infernal Pig Pen.
