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.

Format: DVD
Visually superb. On that count alone the film should have 5*. The special effects were amazing, indeed mighty, and seamlessly blended without any apparent use of animated models. Seeing the gods in everyday Greek clothes, rather than the soft focus shiny armour of Clash of the Titans was also a vast improvement but I did miss the stunning city-scapes of the first film. Rosamund Pike looked as gorgeous as ever. On the other hand, why was Bill Nighy required to play Hepaestus with a strong northern English accent? Perhaps it was an additional special effect?

In terms of story, the difference between Wrath and Clash is that Clash followed a more episodic, quest -like format, in which Perseus had to gather essential clues and items during a lengthy journey to find the only thing which could defeat the monstrous Kraken. In Wrath the story is much more compact, with two of the necessary weapons being obtained relatively quickly and there being more interaction between gods and humans, rather than humans and mythical creatures (although there are several of those, each full of menace and ferocity).

The only let-down was the dialogue which I found crawled little above the barest minimum to sustain a story. For example when our hero Perseus lands flying horse Pegasus on the battlefield, he dismounts and says to a soldier, "I must speak to the queen." Andromeda duly appears around the next soldier two seconds later, angles her head towards her tent and says in a bright little voice "Come on." Not awfully regal.

Despite the dialogue, I shall be at the front of the queue to buy this as soon as it's out on DVD. Why?

Short and sharp, this is an action packed movie that just doesn't give you time to draw breath or blink an eye until somewhere like the 90th minute when Bill Nighy throws a little bit of light-heartedness into the otherwise serious goings-on with what is a fairly easy-to-follow plot which carrys on about 10 years after the previous film left off and has horrible Hades,(played marvellously by Ralph Fiennes)and Ares(Edgar Ramirez) having captured Zeus(Liam Neeson)This results in the hero of the film Perseus having to go to Hell, quite literally, to make his rescue attempt of his father. Of course all the Monsters and Titans including Cyclops,Kronos and Makhai are released onto the World as revenge.The beautiful English Rose, Rosamund Pike plays Andromeda.A good value film!

I was amazed they were making this film after the bad reviews Clash of the Titans got so I was a bit apprehensive about seeing it (even though I thought Clash of the Titans was good). I didn't need to be worried. This film rejoins Perseus and his son. Perseus is called upon by his father Zeus as the Gods are starting to lose their power and Hades is trying to release the titans who will destroy the earth.
I thought the film over all was very good and I am looking forward to getting it on DVD when it comes out.

'Perseus' (Sam Worthington) ( Half God/ Half Mortal, son of zeus ) has since killing the 'Kraken' 10 years ago chosen to live among mortals bringing up his son 'Helius' (John Bell)
'Zeus' (Liam Neeson) asks for his son's support to fight off the evil threat posed by his other son, the powerful 'Ares' (Edgar Ramires) along with Zeus's Brother 'Hades' (Ralph Fiennes) ( Lord of the Underworld )
'Perseus' is reluctant to help, until, he hears that 'Ares' and 'Hades' have captured his father...........the evil pair intending to drain 'Zeus' of his power to free the 'all powerfull' 'Kronos' from his imprisoned state.
If 'Kronos' is revived, the world would be under threat from his powers.
'Perseus' with the help from 'Agenor' (Toby Kebbell) ( Son of Poseidon ) and warrior princess 'Andromeda' (Rosamund Pike) set out to find their way into the Underworld, however they will need help unlocking the secrets of it's Labyrinth.
A battle awaits them....
Great watch, great visuals, which more than makes up for the weak dialog.............for me---this is why we own 'HD' equipment and 3-D.
