Sequel to the 2010 film, “Wrath of the Titans” takes place a decade after the events of the first film.
Not to worry though if you haven’t watched the first one – all you need to know is that the Gods lost control over the imprisoned Titans. Then Perseus, the demigod son of Zeus, is called upon once again to basically save the world.
So starts the story of Zeus paying a visit to Perseus to tell him that the power of the Gods are fading as the walls of Tartarus (underworld prison) are breaking. When that happens, demons and various monsters will basically “come out to play”. Meaning, attack and take over or destroy the world.
Perseus declines the fight, which left Zeus no choice but to descend to Tartarus himself to meet with the other Gods, Hades, Poseidon, and Ares. All hell breaks loose, Zeus is taken prisoner, and is having his power sucked out of him.
Perseus, out of love for father and his own son, Helius, decides to build an army consisting of Queen Andromeda, Agenor, and Hephaestus to journey into Tartarus.
And the rest, well, please watch it! This review is not all about spoilers. Where’s the fun in that, right? But don’t go in without first watching the trailer, of course:

The entire movie is built on a pseudo-mythology dotted with pretty impressive special effects. There’s also hearsay that “Wrath of the Titans” was a lot more fun and worth watching than its predecessor. Might we add that with Sam Worthington playing lead in the cast of actors, it also added major brownie points to the film.
In fact, we think he fits the role perfectly!
As for the rest of the film, think of it as tossing “Gladiator”, “Immortals”, and “Lord of the Rings” in a giant salad bowl and “season” it with of a lot of dust, grim, ashes, and dirt.
Yes, manly. Go watch it already!
