Wrath of the Titans
Here we are again, another Greek mythology story with Sam Worthington as the lead. Meh.
I’ll be the first to admit, I am a huge fan of Greek mythology but that’s just me although I’ve got to say Wrath of the Titans wasn’t quite what I was expecting.
Sam Worthington returns as the demi-god Perseus and the plot takes place several years after Clash of the Titans where Perseus just wants to kick back and catch some fish after his stint with the Kraken several years prior. Perseus now has a son who he doesn’t want fighting so he teaches him how to fish. In addition to his son, Perseus has grown a sweet mullet that keeps on getting in his face but I suppose you need “character development”. I know it isn’t that type of “character development” but hey a mullet is mullet.
Obviously, Perseus’ fishing escapade is short-lived and Zeus tells him that humanity has stopped praying to the gods and this means their powers are dwindling allowing Cronos, the father of the Titans, to escape his prison in Tartarus and fuck everything up. This means Perseus has to ditch the fishing rod for a sword and kick arse once again.
Wrath of the Titans isn’t by all means terrible but I expected more for some reason. I enjoyed the Clash of the Titans more because it seemed to have more action. The build up to seeing Cronos fuck things up was OK I guess but when you actually see him terrorise people it’s a bit meh if I’m being honest.
Because I love Greek mythology I was just disappointed on how the film was executed.If you like the first film you might like it, if not I doubt it. I guess it could go either way.
Review: 3/5. Not bad but not good. Sam Worthington isn’t as plastic as an actor in this film but for some reason the rest of the film suffers.
