Wrath of the Titans

05Apr12

Wrath of the Titans is the sequel to the 2010 box office hit Clash of the Titans. I didn’t see the original film; however I had read that the sequel was a vast improvement, so I entered the cinema with an open mind as to what I may see.

As a spectacle, Wrath of the Titans is incredible, especially with the visualisation of the god Kronos who appears as a fiery mountain creature.

Apart from the visual spectacle however, there really wasn’t that much to Wrath of the Titans in my opinion.

The dialogue is silly, the performances are led all over the place (although the actors do the best with what they’re given) and the overall story is simply quite poor.

Unfortunately for Wrath of the Titans, last year saw the movie Immortals released, which not only contained a similar plot, but was also executed in a far, far better way.

Wrath didn’t seem to know where it wanted to go, did it want to be seen as campy but fun entertainment, nor did it want to be a seriously epic action adventure?

In the end the film landed awkwardly between the two, and was just a bit of a messy, albeit visually impressive production.

Unlike other big budget action films I was neither drawn in by the characters, nor entertained by the sheer spectacle of the movie.

I’m not sure there could have been a better picture made from the story that the filmmakers had to work with, but all in all, I’m not convinced Wrath of the Titans was really worth the admission price.
