I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews here so ordered with fingers crossed!
Clash is a straightforward entertaining tale that's good to look at in 3d and well worth the £10. Wrath is a big step up in story & production, looks amazing especially in 3d and is gripping; it's a steal at £10!
Hope more companies do these package deals as I'd definitely buy them.
OK for the price. Clash was not originally made in 3D and was 'converted' to 3D later, so is a disappointment from that point of view, but it's still a good film. Wrath was filmed in 3D and is just an 'OK' film in my opinion.
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 tail 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?
In CLASH OF THE TITANS the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings & gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. But won man can help Perseus half and god son of great Zeus. WRATH OF THE TITANS A decade after defeating the monstrous Kraken, Perseus attempts to retire to a quiet life as a fisherman like his adopted father before him, sole parent to his young son Theseus. However, a great war has erupted between the gods, weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, and the long-imprisoned Titans, who are led by the ferocious Kronos. Betrayed by Hades, Zeus is captured and brought to the underworld, & Perseus must once again become a hero to find Zeus & end the Titans' struggle to rule the earth once again.
