If you enjoyed Persus’s adventures in “Clash of the Titans”, battling Medusa, killing the Kraken, and rescuing Princess Andromeda, then you’ll love the next movie in Perseus’s saga – “Wrath of the Titans.” In “Wrath of the Titans”, Sam Worthington resumes his role as Perseus – son of Zeus. We discover that Perseus has attempted to live a quiet life, with his son Helius, as a humble village fisherman. But fate has other plans.
Saving the World from Cronus
If you’re familiar with Greek mythology, you may recall the Cronus was one of the Titans, who ruled the earth until he was overthrown by his son Zeus. Zeus imprisoned Cronus in Tartarus, where Hades reigned. In “Wrath of the Titans”, Cronus is on the verge of regaining his power and must be stopped before he destroys the world.
Several of the “Clash of the Titans” cast members resume their roles in “Wrath of the Titans,” including Zeus, played by Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, as Hades. Both of these men excel in their roles, and I especially enjoyed the performance by Bill Nighy, who played “the fallen one,” Hephaestus – maker of the weapons wielded by Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades.
Fans of the first movie will definitely enjoy “Wrath of the Titans,” where Perseus faces the maze of Tartarus and the creatures that lie within. As expected the special effects, fight scenes, and adventures were exciting and explosive. Greek mythology fans will get a healthy dose of Olympians Aries, Hades, and Zeus, and be intrigued by the depiction of Tartarus as an ever- changing maze of moving pathways and walls. I was really surprised to see how much of a role Zeus played in this movie, since you usually see him looking down from Mount Olympus.
Interestingly, everyone that watched it really enjoyed the deleted scenes that were found in the Special Features. I definitely recommend you watch the additional footage since they add some extra insight and story line to some of the characters. For example, one clip gave more depth to the father-son relationship between Perseus and his son, played by John Bell, who brought a level of intimacy in those scenes.

About “Wrath of the Titans”
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 cavernous Underworld.
