Wrath of the Titans

The God Delusion: Wrath of the Titans

Gods have been very busy in Hollywood these days, especially the Greek Gods and the earthlings they have procreated. They have been involved in the end-of-the-world-sort-of destruction while being abused, battered, bruised, and generally reminded about the more lasting powers of human good despite the odds.

Wrath of the Titans Is one of those lessons, with the odds large enough to be both impressive and incomprehensible. The actors, with the unblemished blond exception of Pike, battle on to make this outing as different as it can be under the circumstances. Moreover, achieve, at least, in going farther than the 2010 prequel, Clash of Titans, which itself was an adaptation of a 1981 film.

Wrath of the Titans catches up with Perseus (the son of Zeus) 10 years after we had left him victorious at the doors of the monster Kraken. The wife is dead, but Perseus ( Worthington), a half-human, is content with his "normal” life of raising a son and going fishing for a living.

Then Zeus (Neeson) drops in and tells Perseus about an impending war and that "he can’t deny his destiny.” Ares, the other godly son of Zeus, and Hades (Fiennes) the god of the Underworld have joined hands with Kronos to … well, being Greek gods, they never get around to discussing that.

Kronos is the father of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades who "got drunk on power” and hence, was defeated by the three brothers and imprisoned.

After a perfunctory speech by Zeus, about how being half-human makes Perseus more powerful (simply put, the kind of bond he has

With his son, something the gods seem incapable of) Perseus joins the war.

Te war in the Tartarus, the prison of the underworld, is meant to be the special effects high point of this film. And the way corridors spring up and zoom into place is impressive. However, too many walls and floors collapse to make survival here seem less marvelous and more a joke. On the other hand, the first encounter between Perseus and Demons, involving what passes for hand-to-hand combat these days, holds more promise than the film eventually lives up to.

Agenor, the sun of Poseidon (played by Kebbell) and Hephaestus, the forger of god’s weapons, (played by Nighy) keep the film moving with just the right amount of banter among men with stony visages and flowing manes.

Worthington, on his part, is on his way to becoming the strong silent types whose strength lies in his silence. Mercifully, he realizes that.

The director of this movie is Jonathan Liebesman and he nicely directed the whole film that made it alive. Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike, Edgar Ramirez, Danny Huston, Lily James, Alejandro Naranjo, Freddy Drabble, Kathryn Carpenter and Matt Milne acted in this movie.

It seems that all the actors tried their best to show the best performance of them in this movie. Now, it’s time to see whether the box-office is hit by it or not.
