Wrath of the Titans (DVD)
Sam Worthington returns as Perseus, the demigod son of Zeus (Liam Neeson) in this epic adventure sequel that takes place 10 years after his heroic defeat of the Kraken. Trying to live a quiet life as a village fisherman, Perseus is recruited to join a battle for supremacy between the Gods and the Titans who spawned them. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon's son (Toby Kebbel) and the fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue his father, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.]]>
Having slain a giant sea monster in glorious combat, the ancient Greek demigod Perseus (Sam Worthington) just wants to settle down and do a little fishing with his son. Unfortunately, Zeus (Liam Neeson) arrives to tell his son that the end of everything is right around the corner if Perseus doesn't help him defeat an even bigger threat, Perseus's grandfather Chronos, whom Hades (Ralph Fiennes), god of the dead, has conspired to release from an underworld prison. Special effects and brutal action ensue! Wrath of the Titans is not so much a movie as a deep tissue massage. Between the thunderous sound design, the relentlessly pounding action, and the hyperbolic CGI imagery, you will feel not merely bludgeoned but actually rolfed. The movie's color scheme ranges from sand to dust to stone, with the occasional glimpse of blue from a soldier's uniform hitting the eye as a blessed relief. The likable but bland Worthington has (maybe) one facial expression through the entire movie, while heavy-hitters Neeson and Fiennes mope and regret with little enthusiasm. Strangely, the most sympathetic character is one of the villains, the war god Ares (Édgar Ramírez, The Bourne Ultimatum), whose resentment of Zeus's neglect is at least comprehensible. Some comic relief can be found from Bill Nighy (Underworld) and Toby Kebbell (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), while the lovely Rosamund Pike (An Education) offers a hint of femininity in an otherwise testosterone-drenched frenzy. Wrath of the Titans is aimed squarely at computer-generated-action junkies. --Bret Fetzer
