Wrath of the Titans Reviews

  • Wrath of the Titans is a testosterone fueled effects romp and proud of it.

    Julian Roman — MovieWeb

  • Maybe it's just my imagination, but Sam Worthington seems to be getting slightly less stiff as an actor. He now smiles occasionally, and he's at least risen to the soulful inexpressiveness of the young Ryan O'Neal.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • At least it doesn't take itself too seriously.

    Andy Webster — New York Times

  • While the special effects are sharper than in Clash of the Titans, the dialogue is equally uninspired.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • [Perseus] just doesn't feel as motivated here. He's Complacent Rocky, when "Wrath'' needs Eye-of-the-Tiger Rocky. At least the 3-D passes muster.

    Tom Russo — Boston Globe

  • What it lacks are the very elements that made the first movie such a surprise: wit and nerve.

    Mark Holcomb — Village Voice

  • The biggest fault is that comparatively little attention is given to the monsters. We see a swish of tail here, a giant foot there, but too often we're denied a lingering look at the destroyers.

    Joe Neumaier — New York Daily News

  • When the Titans last clashed two years ago, their dialogue was idiotic, their plot machinations impenetrable and their 3-D process an add-on disaster. The best I can say for this sequel-not such a bad best-is that you'll want to keep your 3-D glasses on.

    Joe Morgenstern — Wall Street Journal

  • There's little about this picture to really endear the viewer after the whole thing wraps. That said, while it's happening, the sensationalism is, well, pretty sensational

    Glenn Kenny — MSN Movies

  • You get an idea of who the major players are, and then they spend a modest amount of time shouting laughable dialogue at one another while being all but forced off the screen by special effects.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • Rarely has a film so equally balanced macho and nacho...

    David Hiltbrand — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • Though the film shortchanges us on the promise of its title, providing only one titan, it is overkill in most other regards.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • The good news is: "Wrath" is a much better film than "Clash" - lighter, more agile, with much better special effects and pretty decent 3-D.

    Tom Long — Detroit News

  • Not a gigantic leap forward for cinema but, armed with a new director, a new story and the return of a trying-harder Worthington and good ol' Liam Neeson as a put-upon Zeus, a marked upgrade in quality.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • It's a mess too, but it's far more defensible as a lazy Sunday lark for those who have just recently outgrown action figures.

    Andrew Barker — Variety

  • A journey back to an ancient time when gods walked the earth, monsters breathed fire and stout-hearted warriors wore adorable leather cheerleader skirts with strappy gladiator sandals.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • Worthington remains a distinctly humourless hero, which makes you long for the likes of a prime-time Harrison Ford or Arnold Schwarzenegger, who knew how to make a fondue out of cheese.

    Peter Howell — Toronto Star

  • Doesn't drag in doling out familiar sensations.

    William Goss — Film.com

  • The father of the gods turned out to be a CGI-created, lava-spewing, mountain-sized creature with smudgy features and all the eloquence of a belch.

    Globe and Mail

  • For those with a burning curiosity to know how The Lord of the Rings as directed by Michael Bay might look, Wrath of the Titans provides an idea.

    James Berardinelli — ReelViews
