Wrath of the Titans disappoints

Wrath of the Titans, which is the sequel to Clash of the Titans, did not hold up to the first movie’s Greek God level. Demigod Perseus, the son of Zeus, has to save the world from being destroyed again. Since Perseus defeated the Kraken, he has refused to acknowledge the god within him and lives his life as a mortal fisherman raising his son, Helius. The human kind has stopped worshipping the gods, which causes the gods to lose their power.

Zeus visits Perseus one night to tell him that the lack of faith has caused the walls of Tartarus, the underworld prison where the gods banished the horrible Titans, to weaken. The most feared Titan of all is Kronos, who is the father of Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon. The gods and Titans then battle amongst themselves as to who will determine the fate of the world.

With such a dramatic plot this would seem like a movie to keep you on the edge of your seat. The directors attempted to make the sequel as interesting as the first, but Wrath of the Titans was absolute overkill. The movie was jam-packed with story ideas going left and right. There was no traditional approach to the dialogue: all of the characters spoke language too modern for the setting of the movie.

The supposed-to-be jaw-dropping epic battle scenes never lasted long enough to allow the audience to develop an opinion or interest about them. Wrath of the Titans is definitely a movie you will only want to watch once.
