'Wrath of the Titans' Critic Reviews
'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.
Hollywood & Fine
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.
...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.
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.
Mercifully short and only terribly mediocre.
Wrath of the Audience -- that's a movie I'd pay to see.
Little White Lies
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.
Film Journal International
Greek gods and demigods return in a spiffed-up adventure involving Hydras, Cyclops, and Kronos himself. Strong 3D effects help make this worth seeing.
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.

Next to Perseus and his world, John Carter is as colorful as Tony Stark and Barsoom is as colorful as Pandora.
It might be trash, but for those willing to forgive the bland narrative, Wrath Of The Titans is a relatively fun and spectacular adventure.
San Francisco Chronicle
A movie in which whole sequences consist of nothing but guys fighting stiff computer images. Such scenes would be boring even were they done well, but these scenes aren't done well.
Kaplan vs. Kaplan
My first clue that this was going to be a disaster was the director, Jonathan Liebesman, who also directed "Battle Los Angeles".
This is just more of the same, without nearly as much spirit but with slightly better fight scenes.
[I]ncompetent on the most basic levels. There's no physical or narrative context for anything... It's bewildering. It's mind-boggling. It can only be the work of trickster gods attempting to drive us mad.
The film is better than the first (not a difficult achievement), especially the 3D. But flashy visuals do not a good movie make and the script is rubbish.
At the very least, this new adventure has stronger CGI and 3D, but there's not enough improvement in production imagination to make this second chapter leap off the screen.
JoBlo's Movie Emporium
If you liked the last one you'll probably enjoy this one too. Not the worst film ever, but totally disposable. In one ear, and out the other...
If the first film was humorless, its sequel is guilty of misplaced laughs.
