The film, directed by Louis Leterrier is loosely based on the Greek Mythology character of Perseus. Adaptation by Leterrier has been astonishing and the presentation mind blowing. The viewers are teleported to another world and seem to be lost in it without realizing it. Leterrier has pumped lot of energy, imagination and certain madness into the movie. The imagination is visible, the energy can be felt but the madness simply engulfs you. Go ahead and get involved.
