The film, a sequel to 2010′s Clash of the Titans is much like the abysmal Underworld where heroes are questing. After defeat of monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington)-demigod son of Zeus (Liam Neeson) attempts to live silent life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father to long ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Poseidon left to rot in the dungeons of Tartarus by the triumvirate is getting stronger due to lack of devotion of mankind towards God. In order to free Kronos, Hades along with Zeus’ godly son Ares (Édgar Ramírez) baits Zeus into the underworld, where they imprison him and channel his powers into the beast. Perseus and allies in the form of his old friend Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike) and Poisedon’s demigod son Agenor (Toby Kebbell) sets out on a treacherous quest into the underworld to free Zeus and stop Titans from unleashing havoc upon the world.
Acting is still better though the script is formulaic, with rigid dialogues. Sam Worthington gives wonderful performance. His aggression in saving his son and his father is conceived well. Rosamund Pike, as Andromeda, adds the much needed glamour to the screen. Liam Neeson work is impressive. However, the real acting treat comes from Bill Nighy, who plays the “fallen one” Hephaestus and whom serves a vital role in the quest of Perseus.
Though the direction could have been better but movie has superb 3D effects and is worth watching in IMAX and 3D screens. It has incredible visual and graphic effects. Titans (mystical beasts) are well-designed and appropriately threatening, giant Cyclopes; Kronos, a two-headed, fire-breathing chimera; double-torso demon soldiers, magical, swooshing walls that open and close around at a staggering pace; and so on. If you would rather save money than viewing it at the cinema, you can simply access some sites that stream movies and watch it from there.
Overall, Wrath of the Titans is a solid fantasy movie based on Greek mythology; a true summer blockbuster that will draw crowds and makes lots of money. It’s more accomplished and enjoyable than its predecessor Clash of the titans showcasing lively 3D effects and graphics. The first half of the film is good but the rhythm goes down in the second half. The plus points include visual, graphics and emotional drama while narration, storyline comes on the flip side. One the whole, Wrath of the titans is worth a watch movie for mythological and 3D fans.
