Wrath of the Titans (BIL/Blu-ray)
Having slain a giant sea monster in glorious combat, the ancient Greek demigod Perseus (Sam Worthington) just wants to settle down and do a little fishing with his son. Unfortunately, Zeus (Liam Neeson) arrives to tell his son that the end of everything is right around the corner if Perseus doesn't help him defeat an even bigger threat, Perseus's grandfather Chronos, whom Hades (Ralph Fiennes), god of the dead, has conspired to release from an underworld prison. Special effects and brutal action ensue! Wrath of the Titans is not so much a movie as a deep tissue massage. Between the thunderous sound design, the relentlessly pounding action, and the hyperbolic CGI imagery, you will feel not merely bludgeoned but actually rolfed. The movie's color scheme ranges from sand to dust to stone, with the occasional glimpse of blue from a soldier's uniform hitting the eye as a blessed relief. The likable but bland Worthington has (maybe) one facial expression through the entire movie, while heavy-hitters Neeson and Fiennes mope and regret with little enthusiasm. Strangely, the most sympathetic character is one of the villains, the war god Ares (�dgar Ram�rez, The Bourne Ultimatum), whose resentment of Zeus's neglect is at least comprehensible. Some comic relief can be found from Bill Nighy (Underworld) and Toby Kebbell (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), while the lovely Rosamund Pike (An Education) offers a hint of femininity in an otherwise testosterone-drenched frenzy. Wrath of the Titans is aimed squarely at computer-generated-action junkies. --Bret FetzerSee all Product Description

Wrath of the Titans arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode, which is nearly flawless. This is the sequel to the earlier release Clash of the Titans. Colours, though typically dusty and sun-struck, are strong and striking. Potent primaries lend Kronos' hellfire vibrance and voracity. Skin tones are warm and lifelike, coming across with punch and distinct clarity. Black levels are inky. Detail is exacting, with edge definition crisp and clean. Fine textures and closeups are also precisely resolved. This is a top-notched transfer (5/5)
Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track wreaks more havoc than Wrath of the Titans' most vicious mythological monsters: fireballs hurtling across the sky, lava turning to stone as it rains from above, a Chimera pounding the ground as it pounces, a cyclops hurling trees at a band of trespassers, a minotaur smashing through rock with tremendous force, lightning and thunder splitting the skies, and gods crashing to earth with a deafening boom, giving my two subwoofers a fantastic workout. Dialogue is clean and clear throughout. Javier Navarrete's score streams from every speaker, complementing the sonic experience perfectly. (5/5)
Wrath of the Titans has an estimated budget of $150 million. But its worldwide gross was $299 million.
Wrath of the Titans (2D) is a worthwhile successor to Clash of the Titans. As a technical marvel, Wrath of the Titans delivers on blu-ray in terms of audio/video grandeur. The video would have been more grand and with more impact if a 2.40:1 ratio was used, like John Carter. It is still an enjoyable movie, and is highly recommended. I hope the above review is helpful to you.
Perseus, son of Zeus (Sam Worthington) teams up with Queen Andromeda(Rosamund Pike), Hephaestus (Bill Nighy) and Agenor (Toby Kebbell) to enter the ever shifting labyrinth of Tartus and free Zeus. Apparently ordering everyone to pray to Zeus to give him power is no longer an option. Alexa Davalos played the original Andromeda...just pretend you are watching "Bewitched."
The movie gives you a brief intro, but there is no real character build-up with an assumption that you have seen the other film. The action hits the screen from almost the moment the movie starts and continues until it ends. There are a few brief scenes without fighting and killing, but they are designed to set up for the next action scene or action game as the case may be. The special effects were superb. The plot was good in keeping in line with the mythology, however the dialouge could have been better with less phrases designed to be truisms and with more funnier quips. Worthington, still living off his Avatar success, gives us his typical less than stellar performance.
No f-bomb, sex, or nudity. Plenty of killing, monster horror, and violence.
They may have taken a little too much time designing this presentation for 3D and spent a tad too much time on graphics. Yet the story showed through. There is also a good bevy of actors; one might be a bit distracted at first asking "now where have I seen that actor before?" but once the action starts you will be absorbed.
The tail is that people gave up praying to the gods. So the gods are losing their power and their grip on the imprisoned titans. Some disgruntled siblings and offsprings join the titans in a tad of revenge. Can Perseus the son of Zeus set things right with a little help from his friends?
Des prises de vues excellentes.
Scènes d'actions endiablés et très bonne.
Agréable à regarder.
Un bon DVD a avoir dans sa collection.

Great movie , my son love it too ..... because of the game Titan Quest !!Published 3 months ago by Patrick Desy
This is a nice action/fantasy flick. If you like the genre or Greek mythology this is a fun ride. However, take it "as-is" and don't dissect it or do a Greek mythology... Read morePublished 5 months ago by John Strama
Great fun, but don't expect too much depth from the story, despite the source material. There's lots of action, but not much else, and the Gods are a bit hokey for use. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Carol
