    I personally felt that the sequel to the remake of Clash of the Titans was much better movie than the remake itself. What made this film work more than the 2010 film was that it a better story, better performances and overall a bit more engaging action. The remake was a mess beca... read moreuse the action was all over the place, and you simply lost interest after a while. With Wrath of Titans, they seemed to take a step back, and focus more on a writing a better story, with effective action that would please fantasy fans. The film is far from perfect, but overall it's a satisfying movie that might surprise viewers that hated the Clash of the Titans remake. The run time is shorter, thus it gets to the point fairly quickly and in the case of this film, it's a big plus because, the original just tried too hard at being grand, ambitious and epic, and in turn it turned out to be a tiresome mess of a film, one that wasn't worth investing your time in, and it showed plenty of weak points instead of strengths because it copied the 80's original, instead of trying to come up with a new angle to tell the story. The filmmakers have succeeded at crafting an entertaining movie with lots of action that is not boring or dull, and it's got a good story as well, maybe not the best, but far better than its predecessor. This is not great cinema, but it's a fun, entertaining popcorn action fantasy film if you're in the right frame of mind to watch. The film won't get any awards, but it's not bad either. I was very much entertained by this follow-up, and considering it follows-up a remake, they managed to make it better than its predecessor.

    An obvious made-for-3D form of motion pictures. Wrath of the Titans focuses entirely on the envisioning effects and CGI-improvements. But the nearly chaotic plot and below par acting brings the film further down the trenches. 2/5

    Well, I enjoyed it. It wasn't the best Greek Mythology movie that I have ever seen, but it was fun to watch.

    The 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans was a movie I liked, mostly because it was a lot better than I figured. Now, as for its sequel, which is this movie. I wasn't overly excited to see it, mostly because I dunno, it just didn't seem like it was trying hard to be seen, and it ... read morecame off as a big after thought. Well, I saw it anyway, and, despite the frosty reception it got, it's actually not terrible, and I did rather enjoy it, which says a lot since I wasn't really expecting anything. It isn't really that good of a movie, but it is watchable, despite being (for me) a step down from its predecessor.

    It's been 10 years since Perseus defeated the Kraken, but all is not well. Trying to live a quiet life as a fisherman, the widower Perseus has put his sword away and made the choice to instead focus on raising his son. Up in Olympus, trouble is brewing as well. Since people have lost their faith in the gods and stopped praying to them, they are losing their power. There's an internal struggle going on between the gods and the imprisoned Titans, but, with Zeus being weakened, it becomes easier for the Titan leader Kronos to rise up from imprisonment and begin his quest to take over for good.

    This inevitably leads Perseus to begrudgingly get back into quest mode as he has to travel to the underworld to rescue the captive Zeus, taken by the traitorous Hades and Aries. Perseus isn't alone though. He is joined by Agenor (the son of Poseidon), Andromeda, and the reclusive Hephaestus. Together they have to battle all kinds of neat creatures, including the Minotaur and some cyclopses, and see exotic places like the Labyrinth.

    There's all kinds of thrilling action and stuff going on, but oddly, this movie didn't really feel as epic as it probably should have. In fact, it's actually rather lackluster and underwhelming. Not sure why, but maybe it's the direction and writing, both of which are rather unremarkable, which is surprising given the set up and possibilities.

    The film's not really boring, but it's more forgettable than not, and it doesn't really go out of its way to make you care. And when it does, it falls flat. At least Worthington delivers more with the action than he does with his stiff acting. Ramirez is fine as Aries, and Fiennes and Neeson do elevate the filmsome, even if it's obvious their hearts aren't really in it.

    See it if you want, but it's not really anything special.

    The original with Harry Hamlin is easier to follow and has a better story. But the special effects in the 2012 film are great.

    I was thoroughly disappointed with the Clash of the Titans remake. It was a dull, uninteresting slog of endlessly plodding action scenes and tons of unmemorable CG effects being thrown at the viewer from every angle as a poor substitute for excitement.

    Thankfully, Wrath of the T... read moreitans manages to be a better movie than Clash in nearly every area. The story is basic but serviceable, with the father of the gods threatening to escape his prison and take out his vengeance on the earth. The gods themselves, weakened by lack of worship and divided by old conflicts, are powerless to face the danger. It falls to Perseus (Sam Worthington) and a small band or warriors to set things right.

    The major improvement Wrath makes is that the action scenes and set pieces are much more exciting this time around. Whether chimera attack or the shifting, crushing walls of a labyrinth and the dangerous beast inside, I was never bored by what was happening on the screen. At the very least, this is a watchable fantasy action flick, which puts it above the first film. Greek mythology is so rich and dense that so much more could be done with the gods, monster and locales that Wrath of the Titans mines for material. Even as flawed as Immortals was, it certainly wasn't generic, which even this improved sequel doesn't totally escape until near the end. Still, whether you enjoyed or loathe the Clash of the Titans reboot, this one is better.

    Aside from Gods, there isn't a whole lot of power in Jonathan Liebesman's Wrath of the Titans.

    The plot strings out in linear fashion for its 100 minute story. The details are straightforward, which makes things extremely easy to follow, but at the same time, leaves the

    ... read more film lacking in excitement.

    The effects are pretty good, with a few disappointing pieces. The grand finale is a highlight and Kronos is an absolute masterpiece. The action lacks excellence and part of it is the choice of mythical beasts and their integration into the story.

    Most of the characters are lackluster in nature. The lead, Sam Worthington is overshadowed by everyone else. The lovely Rosamund Pike, who takes over the Andromeda role from Alexa Davalos, also comes up on the flat side. Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes are always welcome, but in the end, Bill Nighy is the only one with an eccentric performance.

    Wrath of the Titans does come up short when compared to its predecessor; however, it is a watchable film for what it is.

    The remake "Clash of the Titans" has grown on me a little, as opposed to me disliking it when it first came out. I didn't really think it warranted a sequel, but I was game for it anyways. "Wrath of the Titans" is that sequel, and it's bigger and badder. But, it's not better. ... read more Zeus(Liam Neeson) begins to lose his powers, and is captured by Hades(Ralph Fiennes) and Ares(Edgar Ramirez), and it's up to Perseus(Sam Worthington) to save him and fend off the titans led by Kronos, Yeah it sounds ridiculous, and the story is just that. But man of man does this movie look amazing on screen. Watch this in 3D or Blu Ray if you can, the effects are amazing. I just wish the movie were better to match how it looks. I lost interested mid way through, and it took a couple nights to finish it. Maybe it was because I watched it kind of late at night, but I just couldn't get into it. I'm sure I'll re watch it eventually, and maybe it will grow on me. But for now, it's all looks and no substance.

    Well. All I can say is who wanted this film? Other then Sam Worthington, who wanted this movie and why does it exist?
  • August 4, 2012
    Nothing special except this the most forgettable movie, 5 minutes after the end and I forget what was the movie about, like the first one, it was so bad and far away from what I expected to be.

Worthington remains a distinctly humourless hero, which makes you long for the likes of a prime-time Harrison Ford or Arnold Schwarzenegger, who knew how to make a fondue out of cheese. Full Review

The father of the gods turned out to be a CGI-created, lava-spewing, mountain-sized creature with smudgy features and all the eloquence of a belch. Full Review

A movie in which whole sequences consist of nothing but guys fighting stiff computer images. Such scenes would be boring even were they done well, but these scenes aren't done well. Full Review

This big-budget production will probably look terrific in IMAX, but what you'll mostly see in "Wrath" is the spectacle of Hollywood spending money in all the wrong places. Full Review

The good news is: "Wrath" is a much better film than "Clash" - lighter, more agile, with much better special effects and pretty decent 3-D. Full Review

A journey back to an ancient time when gods walked the earth, monsters breathed fire and stout-hearted warriors wore adorable leather cheerleader skirts with strappy gladiator sandals. Full Review
