Movie Review: Wrath of the Titans

I wasn't thrilled with the "Clash of the Titans" remake. Even the "RELEASE THE KRACKEN!!!" line, the climax of the movie, was a bit of a let down after the trailers. So I wasn't sure how much I wanted to see a sequel to that movie. It turns out that "Wrath of the Titans" was better than "Clash of the Titans". Of course, I kept mixing up "Clash of the Titans" with "Immortals" which basically told the same story.

In "Wrath of the Titans" the gods have the problem that their power wanes as people stop worshiping them. If their power goes all the things they did with their power comes undone. That and they die. One of the big things that will come undone is the prison holding Cronos. Cronos is the the Titan that sired Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Hades, etc. Zeus is recruiting all the gods and demigods to come help fight Cronos. Perseus is one of the demigods he needs the most help from. Of course, it would be a story if Cronos hadn't offered deals to some of the gods to provide them with immortality that wasn't based on human worship so long as they helped him escape.

Will I get it on DVD? Probably not. But I will greet a third movie with more enthusiasm.
