In this sequel to Clash of theTitans, the gods are losing their powers because mortals no longer worship them. Hades plots to preserve the immortality of the gods by making a deal with Kronos that will wipe humans off the face of the earth. Half man, half god Perseus has turned his back on war and is raising his son as a fisherman, but when war comes looking for him he comes out of retirement to keep his son and humanity safe.
ClearPlay In Action!
There isn’t any sex or nudity to worry about, and only a few minor language issues pop up. There is a fair amount of violence, so expect some skips and jumps, but a lot of the action is so frenetic and quick cut it’s hard to tell what’s happening anyway. ClearPlayed, Wrath of the Titans would be appropriate for teens and up.
Should I Feel the Wrath?…
I was surprised when Clash of the Titans got a sequel. I’ll be even more surprised if Wrath of the Titans does. There are some nifty visual effects to be had, the fiery Kronos, in particular, the most interesting of the bunch. What you won’t find are compelling characters, dialog, or plot. As a result, when you’re supposed to care about the characters, you don’t, and when you’re supposed to “feel the wrath,” you just feel a little bored. Pure action fans will likely enjoy some of the set pieces and special effects, but viewers who demand a bit more in the story and character department will be disappointed.
