The Wrath of the Titans is an upcoming fantasy film and the sequel to the 2010 film Clash of the Titans. The film stars Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Édgar Ramírez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell and Rosamund Pike with Jonathan Liebesman directing a screenplay by Dan Mazeau & David Leslie Johnson. Let’s get on with the review to check out what made this flick worth watching in theatres.

Plot: Demi god Perseus (Sam Worthington) slew the Kraken and saved the known world from destruction. Now a simple fisherman, he and his ten-year-old son Helius live an idyllic life, until dad Zeus (Neeson) shows up to tell him the gods’ powers are diminishing due to lack of worshippers (funny how sending monsters to eat your devotees tends to put them off their faith) and the underworld prison of Tartarus — home to Kronos, Zeus’s father and leader of the Titans, among others — is in danger of failing. While humanity prepares to be “scattered across the universe” should Kronos escape, Perseus must join with Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike) and cousin (and son of Poseidon) Agenor (Toby Kebbell) to infiltrate Tartarus and defeat Hades (Fiennes) and Ares (Edgar Ramirez), who have joined forces to free Kronos. Whats Happens Next? Will Perseus save the worth from Kronos ? Will Zeus escape? How will Perseus fight the battle? forms the rest of the story.

Performances: Sam Worthington gives a catching performance this time. Liam Neeson does an Impressive work. Edgar Ramirez and Ralph Fiennes show cases some decent stuff. Rosamund Pike, as Andromeda, adds the much needed glamour to the screen. Bill Nighty and Danny Huston support the characters with their mediocre performance.

Technical Values: Direction of the film by Jonathan Liebesman is good in parts. He could able to stuff all elements in the first half and could narrate it in a crisp way. The aggression of hero shown in saving his Son and Father is conceived well. Action episodes are very good. Javier Navarrete’s BGM is apt. Cinematography by Ben Davis is First Rate. The Visual and Graphics are Fabulous. Martin Walsh’s Editing is Crisp. Screenplay of the movie runs on predictable lines.

3D Effects: The movie has superb 3D effects and its worth watching in IMAX and 3D Screens.

Survi Verdict: The first half of the film is good. The tempo goes down in the second half. The sequences towards the preclimax episode is interesting. Positives of Wrath of the Titans are Action, Visual Effects, Cinematography and Emotional Drama. On the Flip side it’s Predictable Script, Narration, Thin Storyline. One the whole, Wrath of the Titans is worth a Watch movie for mythological and 3D fans.

Survi Review: 2.5/5

One thought on “Jonathan Liebesman’s Wrath Of The Titans (2012) Movie Review

  1. Unwatchable. Ben davis should not be allowed near a camera ever again. Hollywood has got to get away from the extreme close-ups and the hand held cameras. We used to make fun of the home movies our dads used to take on vacation because they were bouncy and caused motion sickness. Now we have to pay to watch this tripe. Heres a suggestion……buy a tripod and try panning back or using a wide angle lens. Or, at least try to get a refund on the tuition you spent at “film school”. I’ll be happy to accept a refund for the movie or at least reimbursed for the aspirin.
