Clash of the Titans (2010)
Spyros: One day, somebody's gonna have to make a stand. One day, somebody's gonna have to say enough.
Zeus: You may not want to be a god, Perseus, but after feats like yours, men will worship you. Be good to them. Be better than we were. And if you insist on continuing this mundane human existence, I won't have you do it alone. You're the son of Zeus, after all!
Perseus: I know we're all afraid. But my father told me: someday, someone was gonna have take a stand. Someday, someone was gonna have to say enough! This could be that day. Trust your senses. And don't look this bitch in the eye.
Perseus: I'd rather die in the mud with those men than live forever as a god.
Io: The oldest story ever told are written in the stars. Stories of time before man and gods, when Titans ruled the earth. The Titans were powerful but their reign was ended by their own sons: Zeus, Poseiden, and Hades. Zeus convinced his brother Hades to create a beast so strong it could defeat their parents. And from his own flesh Hades gave birth to an unspeakable horror... the Kraken. Zeus became king of the heavens. Posieden, king of the sea. And Hades, tricked by Zeus, was left to rule the underworld in darkness and in misery. It was Zeus who created man and man's prayers fed the gods' immortality. But in time, mankind grew restless. They began to question the gods and, finally, rise up against them. Into this world, a child was born. A boy who would change everything.
Solon: [Solon draws his bow and arrow in Medusa's lair, and notices a statue in exactly the same posture] Doesn't really inspire confidence.
Hades: You are specks of dust beneath our fingernails. Your very breath is a gift from Olympus. You have insulted powers beyond your comprehension.
Perseus: My father was killed by a god. My mother, sister, everyone I loved was killed by a god. I mend nets. Not wield a sword.
[Perseus draws his divine sword at Hades]
Hades: I'm a god! I will live forever!
Perseus: But not here.
[hurls the sword at Hades, and a lightning bolt from Zeus hits Hades at the same time]
Andromeda: [after Perseus rescues Andromeda] The boats are coming for us.
Perseus: For you, not for me.
Andromeda: You won't stay, will you? Perseus, Argos needs a ruler!
Perseus: I cannot be a king. I serve you better as a man.
Andromeda: Have you seen what's happening out there? Have you even bothered to look?
Io: My name is Io, Perseus.
Perseus: And how do you know me?
Io: I've watched you all your life. I guided you to your family.
Hades: In 10 days, when the sun is eclipsed, I will unleash the Kraken. Argos will be swept from the earth and all of you with it. Unless you sacrifice the princess you so foolish compare to the gods. Only her blood will sate the Kraken and Zeus, who you have so offended. Choose your penance, Argos. Destruction of sacrifice. This is the will of Zeus.
[turns his attention to Perseus]
Hades: The will of your father.
Spyros: Just like the day you came to me. The storm brought me right to you. I know you have questions, son. I wish I had the answers.
Perseus: I have everything I need. Right here.
Draco: There is a God in you. Be sure to bring it. End of lesson.
Cassiopeia: The gods need us. They need our worship. What do we need of them?
Young Perseus: This child will be yours. Me, I'm no one's son.
Spyros: I am your father, Perseus. Marmara is your mother. And you will always be our son. The bond between us is... it's much more than flesh and bone. The love we have for you, it's that love that gods and kings fight over. I've never understood the gods. But even I don't question that you were saved for a reason. And some day... that reason is gonna take you far away from here. But not tonight, eh?
Zeus: Perseus! It's expensive where you're going...
[throws a coin at Perseus]
Calibos: [last words] Perseus... don't become one of them.
[falls down a chasm]
Andromeda: What's your name?
Andromeda: Take this. Please, drink.
[Andromeda holds out a goblet of wine to Perseus, who reaches to take it]
Draco: [slaps the goblet away] Hands off!
Kepheus: Our daughter the missionary!
Ixas: Eusebios... Remember what Perseus said. Eyes down!
Perseus: All my life you've been there you never left me. I can't leave you.
[seeing Perseus after destroying his family]
[in a fit of anger, Perseus charges at Hades before he hurtles the soldiers at him]
Zeus: Like children, they need to be reminded of the order of things!
Zeus: Set an example, brother. Turn them on each other, and back into our arms.
Zeus: I created them, and they reward my love with defiance? There will be no truce!
Zeus: [about Perseus] Have I heard his prayers? This son holds no love for me!
Prokopion: Brothers and sisters, come to me! Come! I have the way out of our misery! Hades has asked for the princess! Sacrifice one, for the life of the city! Why do they remain silent, while we suffer? Why do they guard a woman whose death will save us? Is she better than anyone of you? We've long worshiped Zeus on Argos, but it is Hades who now offers a salvation! We must pray to the one, who showed us our sins! And who offers us redemption, through blood!
Prokopion: The Kraken comes now! Our suffering ends, when the beast is sated. Will it take us? Or will it take Andromeda?
Apollo: [about Hades visit] He belongs in the underworld... not here.
Apollo: [to Zeus about the mortals] You'll just drive them further away! Chase any love from their hearts.
Athena: [approaching as Apollo sits on Zeus's throne] Comfortable?
Apollo: What are you doing here?
Athena: Thinking... Our father is blinded by his anger. Trusting Hades with this power is a threat to all of us.
Apollo: You tell him that. Just give me some warning so I can put some distance between us.
Athena: If Hades is able to release the Kraken, it won't stop at Argos. All of humanity will fall... And then so will we.
Apollo: We can't oppose Hades.
Athena: But this Perseus is...
Apollo: [raging] NO!... How can our existence depend on him?
Athena: We'll have to do something.
Zeus: [as Apollo bows before him] Speak.
Apollo: Perseus, your son...
Zeus: What consequence is he?
Apollo: He aims to kill the Kraken.
Zeus: Does he now? Let him try.
Apollo: Perhaps you should help him.
Zeus: Help him undo our plan?
Apollo: Hades belongs in the underworld. He can't be trusted with this might. He will never be content just to serve you.
Zeus: He he serves me well, better then any of you...
Zeus: They pray again... In Argos, they bow and pray.
Apollo: But who are they praying to? Have we grown stronger? Have we been nourished? I haven't felt it. His way is not our way. They will always fear death, so he will always be fed. We need to feel the love of humans.
Zeus: I do what I do to ensure our survival. Hades is an instrument to that end. Now leave me.
Apollo: [bowing] You'll hear nothing more of this from me.
Apollo: Our father is rather upset... You're running out of time.
Perseus: [turning away] Just leave me alone.
Apollo: Do you know how it feels to live as a god, Perseus?... It's like falling in love every second of the day. You have a god inside of you. But you fight it with every breath... You're drowning in your spite. For what?
Perseus: [angry] I'm tired of everyone telling me what I can and cannot do!
[sees Apollo flinch]
Perseus: You're afraid.
Apollo: Careful how you speak to me. Only one of is mortal.
Perseus: Why would a god wanna help me?
Apollo: Because you're fighting the part of you that can help me, which is all I really care about. Throw away your pride, Perseus. Or you won't last another day.
Perseus: I'd rather die in the mud with those men than stand alongside you.
Apollo: [chuckling] You share our father's arrogance... clearly we are brothers.
