    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.

    As was the case the last time around, we're not presented any reason to care about the characters, their plight and goals, or anything else about the film. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)

    Virtually no rooting interest in the heroes or their journey or even a worthy villain worth jeering. Watching it is like listening to Del Griffith try to tell you an anecdote; shifting from point to point with nary the thinnest of connections.

    "Wrath of the Titans" is what it is. It's an action flick that utilizes 3-D better than most.

    While Wrath of the Titans may not be escapist fantasy entertainment at its finest, the film's strong cast and striking visuals make for a thrilling theatrical ride.

    The lack of majesty and the overall been-there-seen-that feeling render Wrath of the Titans a textbook example of a disappointing cash-in.

    A mumbling, stubbly Worthington phones in his effort from a long way away. It's as if he just stepped off Man on a Ledge and landed in a leather tunic.

    Yes the story is paint by the numbers and Worthington is well, you know, but this is a nice example of spectacle film making on a budget. Most of the large 3D set pieces work really well.

    Wrath of the Titans is the visual equivalent of white noise. I don't think I watched it so much as I just looked at it.

    With its heavy sword passed down too many generations, this spectacular if tired sequel to a remake abounds in rehashed myths and second-hand ideas.

    It's a textbook example of a blockbuster sequel that was made purely for financial, rather than creative reasons.

    Amid the fast-moving chaos, it gets a little repetitive: there's so much volcanic action, so much fire and brimstone that all that heat might leave you cold.

    There is not much new in the sequel and [director] Jonathan Liebesman never ties enough emotion to the main characters for you to care about their peril.

    Wrath of the Titans is proof that while ugly pictures make a bad film worse, prettier ones don't make a bad film better.

    The problem with a film that uses CGI as a substitute for good writing is that virtually every picture that comes along nowadays has impressive visual effects; this has leveled the playing field, to say the least.

    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] loud and agonizingly dull sequel that inherits all the problems that plagued its predecessor - and then some.

    Countless boring sword-and-sandal skirmishes, none of which feel remotely suspenseful, until the hugeness of it all becomes a mildly passable joke.

    A sprinkle of distinguished actors, lots of beefcake, mythical monsters, and dialogue so ear-crashingly awful it is a step down from scripted awards-show presenter banter.
