Wrath of the Titans
Movie Review: 8/10
A very non stop action pack movie with a lot of twists and turns. Although in every movie there is always a flaw somewhere in the story line or movie itself, I must say it was quite entertaining like the Hunger Games. The director Gary Ross needs to check this one out to get some pointers in terms of fighting scenes and cinematography but aside from cheesy American lines and father/brother issues it was quite fun to watch.
It was really a very fast movie, from the start to finish, it was an all out adventure. I'm a little sad though because they really altered the mythology of the original movie version as it was that I was always been a mythology geek/purist but this second movie was just plain different. Greek gods don't die. Unlike Norse ones that really die and have the end of the world kind of thing, Greek gods don't have that but in the Wrath of the Titans, they just die...
I wonder if this is the last of this franchise because the plot of the story centers on the premise that the people no longer wish to worship them and now with such an open ended movie, it makes you wonder if this is the last, we will ever see of Perseus and Andromeda.
But enough of my rants, I love it because of its great cinematography, amazing CGI and wonderful fights scenes. There were times that the camera moved but it was done so artfully you never actually noticed it not like the Hunger Games and its idiot holding the camera.
The new actress Rosemund Pike who replaced the old Andromeda was also good. Take note though that everything and everyone was basically changed, the only ones that remained was Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, and Ralph Fiennes but I doubt, we'll ever see Liam Neeson in the third installment because of what happened but its still a pretty good movie full of monsters, gods and mythology. I just wonder if the audience feels the same with such a very interesting, unexpected, disalarming sequel that quite differs from its predecessor or the mythos itself.
