By the Gods!

Harry Hamlin (Perseus) and Burgess Meredith in CLASH OF THE TITANS (1981)

Back when movies set in Ancient Greece looked like they were set in Ancient Greece. Those were the days.

I agree this film had impressive production values. Stop motion effects by Ray Harryhausen were impressive.

However, uninspired acting and problems with pacing limit my rating to only B+.

The scenes of the gods and goddesses on Mount Olympus were also distracting.

Yes, nowadays the Hollywood people have the notion that, whatever the historical documents say, we know better; we know what looks cool!
