Wrath of the Titans

I didn't like it.

It's watchable,
with a lot of fight scenes, action, and good looking people,
but that was it.

Thanks to Nuffnang for giving out the tickets.

I think the story is ok, it's something different,
good guy turned bad and the other way around,

but then the whole movie is just


Despite the fact that I really like Greek Mythology,
this movie failed to tie me to my seat.

(probably because it was crazy cold and I was shivering like crazy
and I was tired because of lack of sleep)

If you didn't watch the Clash of the Titans,
here's a little background.
(According to the film, not the real mythology)

Perseus is the (King of the Olympian Gods) Zeus's son.
He helped kill the Kraken
which was the evil monster that had about 3 minutes of screen time in COTT.

Perseus is back to his fisherman life with his son Helius.
His wife, Io (who supposedly is the lover of Zeus in real mythology) get to appear as a grave.

in WOTT,
Zeus returned to Perseus to ask for help
because he knew that Tartarus/Hell/Prison for the Titans
is breaking down,
and the Titans, namely Kronos, Father of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades will escape.

Zeus wouldn't want that,
because they worked hard to keep him in captivity,
and if he breaks loose,
it's literally hell breaks loose.

Perseus traveled to help stop the release of Kronos

and the movie was wrapped around that idea.

He traveled with queen Andromeda and the son of Poseidon Agenor (who played a super minor role)

and I thought their adventure would be more interesting.

But then,


Take a good look at the bad guys.
Because they have the combined screen time of approximately 15 minutes.

The Chimera was the luckiest.

They don't always show up,
but when they do,
it's not clear how they really look like.

There's another bad guy in the movie,
but if I tell you now,
I'll have to kill...

the "surprise".


It's an ok movie,
if you ran out of movies to watch,
watch this.

That's it.

Watch Hunger Games first perhaps. 

That's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~

p.s. I preferred the Andromeda in COTT.
Just saying.
