Clash of the Accents

Wow … I’ve been wading through tons of reviews of ‘Clash of the Titans’ and they are generally negative.  I’m probably only going to link to ones with something interesting to say, like this excerpt from one in the Atlantic:

In fact, the movie’s accents also deserve their own paragraph, because they are hilarious. The French-born director either couldn’t hear the different accents of his cast, or didn’t care. This gave them creative license to each decide on their own “foreign” accent in which to deliver their lines. There are Ancient Greeks speaking Greek with an English accent, Ancient Greeks speaking Greek with French, German and Russian accents, even two ersatz Arabs who are supposed to be the comic relief.
