Perhaps my expectations were too high.

In 1981 a movie named Clash of the Titans hit theatres; obviously I never saw it. So when the Remake make out in 2010 I thought it was something new. Despite this I loved the movie; there was a bunch of action, great pacing, abit of humour, and just overall fun to watch. About mid March 2012 I find out (completely by accident) that the sequel to Clash of the Titans, Wrath of the Titans was coming to theatres an automatic day one watch for me. 
 

Wrath of the Titans takes place 10 years after the first movie, true to his word Perseus has decided to live his life as a fisherman with his 10 year old son. At the same time the Gods of Olympus find they are losing their power because of humanity’s lack of devotion, this gives Hades the chance to revive Kronos the first Titan. With the Gods weakened and unable to combat this new threat they turn to Perseus for help.
 
I went in expecting a great movie; instead I came out wondering how much other better things I could have spent my 12 dollars on. Wrath of the Titans was a Boring very “meh” kinda movie. The Story progresses slowly, and there isn’t really much interaction or chemistry with the characters. The movies seems thrown together and not well thought out, some of the dialogue is off, and it just seems uninspired like the director didn’t even really want to do this movie. If you’re watching this movie for the same kind of action from the first, look somewhere else because it’s in short supply here.
 
I was really disappointed because the first movie had everything I just said the second movie didn’t. Wrath of the Titans is boring, downright boring to watch. If I could say anything good about it, it would be ……………………that………………I can’t think out anything. Not only that don’t let the trailer fool you, what you think is going to happen based on the trailer and the name doesn’t.
 
I didn’t hate this movie; I was more disappointed than anything else. There are some good parts but they are far and few between, but not enough to redeem this movie. Avoid this one.

You know I wasn't a fan of the first movie, but I appreciated what it tried to do. It had some good action scenes, great effects and the plot (ok, it was lacking) had followed a good template of the original--which made it work. This one---I just did not feel any suspense and thrills. The action and effects were good, but it did not connect with me at all. Nice review!

Thanks. I really liked the first movie. So I expecting good things from this one. But I guess thats what happens when you change directors.

Sequels rarely present the same thrill.

They are rare but in some cases sequels are actually good. Even Rarer some are better than the first .

I have to admit, I really didn’t like the 2010 remake “Clash of the Titans”, but I respected its intentions. It was action-oriented and really a grand display of special effects that proved to be a visual and aural feast to some. It was even delayed just so the 3D gimmick could be added in, which never improved on its experience. There was just no way that I would see its sequel “Wrath of the Titans” in 3D and paying more money for it. I was a little optimistic when …

*1/2 out of ****    This is probably Jonathan Liebesman's best film yet. It's been almost a decade now of non-stop epic failures for the guy's directorial career, and finally he's made a film that stands out amongst the others because it rises above his usual standards, if only slightly. "Wrath of the Titans", the sequel to 2010's "Clash of the Titans" - which was based on the 1981 film of the same name -, is boring, brainless, and chaotic when it could have easily been unwatchable, …

Star Rating:         I think what I appreciated most about Wrath of the Titans is that, unlike its 2010 predecessor, I wasn’t forced into making comparisons between versions. Clash of the Titans was, of course, a remake of the 1981 film of the same name. Many people thought I was insane for liking that film. Many more were angry that I had the gall to say the remake was better than the original. As much as I don’t like to fan flames, there’s really …

If you were one of the millions of people who saw Clash of the Titans and thought to yourself that things couldn't get any worse than that film, you thought wrong.  Wrath of the Titans was brought down to us by a vengeful God who wanted to punish us for watching that movie.  Lord have mercy on our souls!  Wrath of the Titans is far worse than the previous film in almost every way imaginable.      Wrath of the Titans begins when Zeus goes to Perseus to tell …

The sequel to the 2010 version of Clash of the Titans is coming out this weekend. Many of you may be wondering, wait didn't that movie suck? Why are they making a sequel? The answer being that while domestically the movie made a little bit more than the budget of the film, around the world the movie made bank. What are you going to do people in Eurasia love action movies. So studio heads fixed all the problems of the first one such as not originally filming it in 3-D, not nearly enough …
