'Wrath Of The Titans' 'Two Jews On Film' Say This Action Greek God Fantasy Falls To Earth (Video)

By Joan Alperin Schwartz

So what's a demigod to do when all he wants, is to live a quiet life with his son, and do a little fishing, but his daddy has other plans for him?

That's the predicament Perseus (Sam Worthington) finds himself in, when a war breaks out among thegods. Families...Can't live with them...Can't live without them.

Seems Perseus father, Zeus (Liam Neeson) has been kidnapped by his brothers Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston) and he's being held captive in the underworld, where his bad ass dad,Kronos, is sucking the life out of him.

To make matters worse, us humans, being the fickle creatures that we are, have lost interest in the godscausing them to lose their power....Sort of what happened with the t.v. show 'Desperate Housewives'.

Anyway, if Perseus doesn't help rescue Daddy Zeus, all hell will be unleased on earth.  We're talking...when monsters attack...and these are some really ugly monsters, with way to many arms and extremely bad breath.

Luckily Perseus has Poseidon's half son, fellow demigod, Agenor (Toby Kebbell) along with warrior QueenAndromeda (Rosamund Pike) to help him on his quest to save big daddy.

Along the way, our little group meets up with the fallen god, Hephaestus (Bill Nighy) and a few gigantic Cyclops with major anger issues.

Basically in my opinion, this film plays out like one long video game.  There are obstacles to overcome, creatures to defeat, mazes that need to be manuevered and...well, you get the idea.

Some of the 3D effects are pretty cool and even though I haven't seen the first film, 'Clash Of The Titans', I've heard that this one is supposedly better.

'Wrath Of The Titans' was directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the same dude who directed 'Battle LA', another film I wasn't crazy about either.

This movie opens in theatres Friday, March 30, 2012.  I gave it 2 bagels out of 5.
 As I mentioned in our video, my favorite part of the film was Pegasus the winged horse.

 Check out our video to see our version of Pegasus and to find out what John thought.

I didn't hate the first one but this one sounds like it will be about the same.

Seems like we have a lot of similar things to say about this one. This was so shamelessly reliant to its CGI effects with a very flimsy plot. I think this is about the same as the first movie, updated CGI but as bombastic and unimaginative as the first movie, the first movie was bad because it was a remake--while this is a sequel of a remake ugh. The Cyclops were nice to look at as well as Kronos. I will be rating this the same (2/5) as soon as I finish my review.

Looking forward to reading it as always.

Awwww ... really? I had high hopes for this one, given that I only squeaked minor enjoyment outta the first one.

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 …

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 …

*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 …
