I like these movies. There is no deep story line and aren't meant to be "Oscar" worthy, these movies are just for the visuals and action and plain dumb fun. I felt like this was up to par with the first one but the ending in this one was better. However, like the first one, it had it's slow moments. I'm excited for the third one and to see where they take the story as the ending leaves it up in the air.

VIDEO:

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)

AUDIO:

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)

TRIVIA:

Wrath of the Titans has an estimated budget of $150 million. But its worldwide gross was $299 million.

FINAL THOUGHT:

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.

All hell breaks loose (literally) in this non-mythological based sequel to "Clash of the Titans." This story bridges the time of the gods and legends to the time of men. The gods have been losing their power because people have stopped praying to them. Hades, the god of the underworld (Ralph Fiennes) and Ares, god of war (Édgar Ramírez) join forces to release Kronos from Tartus and destroy the gods. Zeus (Liam Neeson) is taken captive and held prisoner as his power is slowly drained from him.

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.

TOP 50 REVIEWERon November 14, 2013
This movie is a product of its age (sort of a graphic novel). I appreciated the earlier movie but it has no bearing on whether this tale stands or falls on its own merit. I still find myself reading not just the Iliad but various histories including Edith Hamilton's "Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes." Watching this movie I was taken back to the amphitheater and can see great orators telling new tales of the wrath of the titans.

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?

Turn down the lights and fire up the popcorn maker this is gonna be fun! Fast paced with tons of action. A fine sequel but not quite as good as the original.

This time, the main character is going in Hell to help save the world. Sadly, as promising as the premise sounds, it delivers fair share of blue screen and great creature designs, but you feel the rushed production, the lack of time to prepare something worthy... it's okay, but far from satisfying.

Nothing refreshing here, but all right if you have a rainy (or snowy) afternoon to kill.
