It didn’t need to be remade - but they did it anyway. It didn’t need a sequel, but they made that too - it is the one and only ‘Wrath of the Titans’. For the non-fans out there, the best this film can boast it the return of its three stars Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes. Bill Nighy steals the show as Hephaestus, a wacky weapons forger, fellow English actor Toby Kebbell plays his part well as Agenor, son of Poseidon (AKA the comic relief) and Rosamund Pike replaces Alexa Davalos as Andromeda who since 2010’s outing has now become Queen and a kick-ass warrior Queen at that.


‘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.

This sequel has a weak plot-line, tied together with convoluted reasoning and over-energised yet average action sequences.

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.
