Wrath of the Titans Review

My review for Wrath of the Titans is now online at Grounded Online. Following on from the 2010 remake, Clash of the Titans starring Sam Worthington, Wrath actually features titans (well, one) this time round to actually justify the title. Here's a bit of what I had to say:
"..the film does at least pass by with moderately less annoyance than its predecessor; the film’s visuals occasionally throw out something arrestingly epic, with both the battle against the Cyclops and the gargantuan stone body of Kronos, emerging from the rocks of Tartarus, being particular standouts. Similarly, the film’s cast is also generally more likeable this time round (though any movie free of Nicholas Hoult is a positive), with Rosamund Pike and Toby Kebbell doing the best with the rather poor script they’re working with. Less impressive is Fiennes’ turn as Hades, whose embarrassment at being involved is made all the more obvious when put against Neeson, heartily continuing his role as the aging king of bad action movies."

Whilst the film doesn't suck as bad as the first one, it still sucks. It just happens to look pretty every twenty minutes or so as well. If you're interested in reading more, you can check out the full review here.
