Wrath of the Titans (2012) Movie Review

Last Tuesday, I went for the premiere screening of Wrath of the Titans at TGV Cinema in Sunway Pyramid courtesy of Churp Churp. I had watched the previous one which was called the Clash of the Titans and also had seen the trailer in the beginning of the year. The prequel had the CGI effects nicely done but storyline was really bad and I had the same feeling that this one will be as crappy.



Director: Jonathan Liebesman
Writers: Dan Mazeau & David Johnson(screenplay)
Cast: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Rosamund Pike



A decade after his heroic defeat of 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. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld.


Check out the official trailer of Wrath of the Titans below:


[ --- Here comes the spoiler ---- ]
In the beginning of the show, it was quite slow but slowly build up in the middle as Perseus journey in seeking Poseidon's son in order to find his father, Zeus. Last time the Gods were useless since they relied fully on Perseus. This time the Gods were even hopeless since the 'good' Gods betrayed one and another. Some of the parts are too draggy especially during the forgiving part between Hades & Zeus. Ares who had betrayed Zeus fought a fair combat with Perseus although he managed to capture Perseus's son, Helius. I guess he wasn't used to being bad yet and did not think of threatening to kill his son in order to get back the Poseidon's trident & Hades's Helm of Darkness. There was another scene, when everyone were separated in the maze, the random monster with horns only attack the strongest one among all, Perseus and not the other two.

My conclusion: My rating would be 2/5 for this movie. Storyline still very much predictable, would not even be better than the prequel but the CGI effects were quite impressive this time. I think the 3D version of this movie would be good to watch especially in iMax cinemas. Some scenes were full of bloodshed and violence so parents better keep this movie away from their kids.
