Wrath of the Titans Movie Review

wrath of the titans movie review

This film does a good job of stepping away from the Clash of the Titan’s remake, with a good storyline and a respectable performance. Wrath of the Titan’s steps quickly into the action of Greek mythology and keeps the tempo running smoothly.

The story line’s angst revolves around some serious family issues for Perseus, his brother Ares and his uncle Hades. The problem with Perseus is that he thinks being half god means he doesn’t have a place with his father Zeus. Ares on the other hand is upset that he’s not the favorite son. Zeus’s brother Hades is upset that he was banished to…hell. (That might upset me too.)

The visual effects and computer generated monsters are on par with the Clash of the Titans from 2010, and it’s offered in 3D. There isn’t anything here that would be considered ground breaking or new, but it’s not bad either. With that said, save your money on the 3D offering, the movie by itself will give you as much entertainment as you can get without having to shell out the few extra dollars on standard visuals.

Wrath of the Titans picks up a decade after Perseus (Sam Worthington) defeats the monstrous Kraken, Perseus – the demigod son of Zeus – is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Zeus visits his son Perseus and tries to enlist him in a new struggle between gods and Titans.

Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion (people are not worshiping deities like they used to), the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus (Liam Neeson), Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston).

Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned.

Maybe if Zeus spent a little more time with his family, he could of avoided getting sapped of power all together.
