    The Olympian peak of Hollywood creative bankruptcy, a sequel to a remake of a movie that wasn't that good to begin with - executed as a special-effects demo reel in the place of actual entertainment.

    The new film is just about endurable. You won't want to watch it again. But you won't feel like scratching your eyes out while sitting through your first viewing.

    This big-budget production will probably look terrific in IMAX, but what you'll mostly see in "Wrath" is the spectacle of Hollywood spending money in all the wrong places.

    Silly and mindless, but ultimately not much fun. Without that, what's the point?

    "A" for effort, O noble warrior, but Harry Hamlin still eats your lunch.

    'Wrath of the Titans' is a Greek tragedy...I felt like I was being pounded to death by the theater's subwoofers and having things flung at me from the screen.

    This is filmmaking without personality, a movie that doesn't just feel like watching someone else play a video game but like it was actually made by a computer program.

    It's a rollicking ride with some of the best use of 3D that I've seen since Avatar.

    Generally afraid to actually let you focus on any of his digital creations too long, lest the seams show...never stops to let you get a fix on what they actually look like.

    For a movie featuring so many iconic mythological figures, the battles are completely void of excitement, none more so than the climactic showdown with Kronos.

    Even when the action is unintelligible, it's at least better than listening to the characters talk.

    Wrath of the Titans won't get anyone through their exams in Greek mythology - but it will pop your eyes as well as your corn.

    ...nothing but mindless special effects.

    Rosamund Pike is hilariously miscast. Her plummy voice ringing out amid the film's mish-mash of accents, she rallies her troops looking and sounding less like a mythological heroine than a lacrosse captain rousing her team on the school playing field.

    Mercifully short and only terribly mediocre.

    Wrath of the Audience -- that's a movie I'd pay to see.

    So little plot and character that you'd be hard pressed to call this a 'film' in the strictest definition of the term.

    Wrath of the Titans is fluff, for sure, but it's not even lighthearted cotton candy. It's more like a convenience store burrito.

    Greek gods and demigods return in a spiffed-up adventure involving Hydras, Cyclops, and Kronos himself. Strong 3D effects help make this worth seeing.

    Next to Perseus and his world, John Carter is as colorful as Tony Stark and Barsoom is as colorful as Pandora.

    In the end, I was mildly entertained. Wrath of the Titans isn't a great movie, and it's possibly not even a good movie. But I wasn't expecting anything more.

    I'm sure digital artists labored like Hercules to create the meshing gears of this intricate subterranean world, but it feels as mechanical as it looks.

    Cinemagoers who have come to expect poor writing in blockbusters may not be surprised by any of this, but what really startles is the way Wrath bungles its main draw: the visuals.

    A sequel nobody asked for, except for some really hard-core Pegasus fans and Hollywood studio execs who would turn wallpaper into a trilogy if the rights were available.
