    ...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.

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

    Mercifully short and only terribly mediocre.

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

    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.

    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.

    It might be trash, but for those willing to forgive the bland narrative, Wrath Of The Titans is a relatively fun and spectacular adventure.

    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.

    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)

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Just as goofy as the first one, but actually enjoyable this time around.

    Greek mythology feels particularly ill-used as a framework for narrative standards this low.

    The ensuing good-natured idiocy is tempered with wit and self-awareness: the prospect of further additions to this franchise no longer sounds like divine punishment.
