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.
March 30, 2012
Amid the fast-moving chaos, it gets a little repetitive: there's so much volcanic action, so much fire and brimstone that all that heat might leave you cold.
March 30, 2012
What it lacks are the very elements that made the first movie such a surprise: wit and nerve.
March 30, 2012
This feeble followup to 2010's godawful Clash of the Titans sucketh the mighty big one.
March 30, 2012
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.
March 30, 2012
So little plot and character that you'd be hard pressed to call this a 'film' in the strictest definition of the term.

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.
March 30, 2012
A movie in which whole sequences consist of nothing but guys fighting stiff computer images. Such scenes would be boring even were they done well, but these scenes aren't done well.
March 30, 2012
At least it doesn't take itself too seriously.
March 30, 2012
This big-budget production will probably look terrific in IMAX, but what you'll mostly see in "Wrath" is the spectacle of Hollywood spending money in all the wrong places.
March 30, 2012
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.
March 30, 2012
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.
March 30, 2012
Doesn't drag in doling out familiar sensations.

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.
March 29, 2012
Countless boring sword-and-sandal skirmishes, none of which feel remotely suspenseful, until the hugeness of it all becomes a mildly passable joke.
March 29, 2012
While the special effects are sharper than in Clash of the Titans, the dialogue is equally uninspired.
March 29, 2012
Wrath radiates the straight-forward, straight-faced pleasures of the mytho-muscular epics, like Hercules and Jason and the Argonauts, produced in Europe a half-century ago.
March 29, 2012
[A] loud and agonizingly dull sequel that inherits all the problems that plagued its predecessor - and then some.
March 29, 2012
This is pure product, a movie desperately without energy or enthusiasm of any kind.
March 29, 2012
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.
