A struggle for supremacy has been raging between the gods that will come to threaten Perseus' idyllic life. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing hold of their immortality, as well as control over the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos.
Action Adventure - Like the first film, this is a very effects-heavy mythical fantasy
adventure. Fans of the returning stars Sam Worthington, Liam
and Ralph Fiennes should be pleased, especially the latter two as
have more screen time than before. Some key roles have been recast
for this film, however. The core action audience of young adult
is the target. While there is no excessive blood, the action and
violence, especially some fantasy creatures, make the film too
and scary for young kids.
Roger EbertFull Review Average 'Wrath of the Titans' relentlessly wore me down with special effects so overscale compared to the characters in the film that at times the only thing to do was grin. The characters, to be sure, are gods and not humans, but they are human-sized gods.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average Though the special effects are sharper than those in Clash of the Titans, the dialogue is equally uninspired.
Washington PostFull Review Very Poor But the movie doesn't even rise to the level of dumb fun. It's inexplicable, not to mention inexcusable.

A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus
(Worthington)—the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson)—is attempting to live quietly as
a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year-old son, Helius.
But unbeknownst to Perseus, a struggle for supremacy has been raging between the
gods that will come to threaten his idyllic life. Dangerously weakened by
humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing hold of their immortality, as
well as control over the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos,
father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny
Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving
him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the
Now, Perseus cannot ignore his true calling as Hades, along with Zeus' godly
son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez), switches loyalties and makes a deal with Kronos to
capture Zeus. The Titan's strength grows as Zeus' remaining godly powers are
siphoned…and hell is unleashed on earth.
Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon's
demigod son Agenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy),
Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the Underworld to rescue
Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
