‘Wrath’s’ predecessor copped a lot of flak when it was transformed into a 3D feature as it was released in the wake of the new technology. This time around, the film has the benefit of actually being shot in 3D, although it lacks the visual justification. Given the film’s concept and high use and need for CGI, it is seriously anorexic when it comes to wonder, shock and awe in the visual department.
Much like ‘Clash’, this sequel has a weak plot-line, tied together with convoluted reasoning and over energised yet average action sequences. In this go-around the time of the gods in ending, meaning they’re becoming weaker, making way for creatures of the underworld to break through and the gods themselves to become mortal. Zeus is captured by his son Ares and brother Hades to steal his power in order to awaken another. It’s up to Perseus, his cousin Agenor and Queen Andromeda to break into the underworld and rescue Zeus before all hell, literally breaks loose.
While much stronger than ‘Clash’, with only the occasional throwaway line that pokes fun at its genre, leading to a welcome giggle or two, this one is definitely for fans of the franchise only.
