I’ve been longing to watch Wrath of the Titans right after I saw its trailer. Its story looks exciting and the scenes look intense. With its title “Wrath” of Titans,” I was expecting to witness overflowing wrath and extreme battle scenes between Perseus (Worthington) and the villains.
In this sequel, Perseus (demigod son of Zeus) works as a fisherman in a quiet village with his 10-year old son Helius. The movie evolves on the struggle for supremacy between gods and the Titans. Humanity’s lack of devotion to the gods weakened the gods’ hold on their immortality and their control over the imprisoned Titans. As a solution, Zeus’s son Ares (Ramirez) teamed up with Hades (Fiennes) and Kronos (father of Zeus, Hades and Poseidon) to steal Zeus power and take over the earth. This caused Perseus to make an action to save his father and the people. Together with Andromeda (Pike), Agenor (Kebbell) and Hephaestus (Nighy), Perseus takes on the adventure of defeating all the monstrous creatures to prevent the power of darkness from ruling over the humanity.
I didn’t enjoy this film as compared to the first film. Although the scenes and actions were nice, there’s something about this story that didn’t appeal to me. It was not interesting and it lacked surprises. Even though the fighting scenes and the monsters were intense, the story itself is shallow. Also, I think that there was no strong character build up and some of the actors performances were lacking.
The only things that are good about it are the fantastic special effects and the mythical creatures were more solid and well-made. However, the last battle scene of Perseus looks boring. It lacked action because Perseus easily defeated the monster.
The film is okay but I expected more out of it. I think Clash of the Titans is much better than this one. It’s not recommendable to watch.
