One Sentence: CG fest is full of CG.
Release Date: 30-Mar-2012
Right from the start they have made this movie better than the original. They filmed this movie in 3-D instead of doing post production 3-D enhancement. This makes a huge difference in the quality of the 3-D and the color of the movie while wearing your indoor sunglasses. So I at least got some indication that they were going to try to make this CG fest a little bit better than the original which was awful. I stress, a little better.
Wrath Of The Titans is exactly what you see in that poster, lava, flying horses, god weapons and crumbling columns. There is not much more to it, and you really don’t need it either. I think pretty soon I will get tired of the very good CG movie with the very thin story that shakes out to a long CG battle, but right now I am ok with it. As long as they are not trying to trick me into making the movie good. They didn’t with Wrath Of The Titans and I am ok with that. It is adventure and action in a CG package with lava creatures and gods. That’s it, and it does that well enough that I can at least get behind this movie just a little bit and say that it is watchable. A lot more watchable than the first one, that is for sure. It is like a stopping point in a longer story, just a fight, that was done well, I can chomp popcorn and not care about what they are saying because I care about what it looks like and ooh is it pretty. They did say some things but I didn’t care about it, it didn’t matter, there were 3-D lava monsters.
So yes, Wrath Of The Titans is probably exactly what you thought it was going to be, and so I think you can make the guess yourself if you want pay to see that. I would skip the 3-D though, as it isn’t even noticeable anymore. I am not sure if they are making the depths of the 3-D less or I am just getting used to it more, but I never notice 3-D anymore. So go in the afternoon save some money and don’t see it in 3-D and if you think you will like it you probably will.
