Why such hate toward Wrath of the Titans?
The Hubby and I finally got around to watching it yesterday, despite the plethora of negativity we've seen and heard about this film. We liked the Clash remake. Didn't love it, but liked it enough to want to see its sequel.
And we were actually impressed by Wrath.
It was by no means a perfect film--even the title is not quite right because, although it clearly affiliates it with Clash, the wrath actually comes from the gods, not the Titans. But we thought it was better than the Clash remake, and even fixed some issues we had with it (like, for me, the lack of romance between Perseus and Andromeda in Clash was pretty infuriating).
We were expecting an awful film. We were searching for such awfulness from minute to minute, scene to scene. But we were hard-pressed to find anything worthy of being called "awful", and we are pretty tough film critics. We have no qualms about shredding a movie with our harsh criticism until it just shuts itself off to avoid further embarrassment. In the end, we agreed that Wrath was entertaining and worth the watch. I could also do an entire BDSS series on how tightly the plot was written. It had not one beat out of place.
Scream it from the top of Mount Olympus--We loved it.
Although, to be fair, we were already big fans of many of the actors in this movie (Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Rosamund Pike--and after watching Wrath I am now also a fan of Toby Kebbell). It wouldn't be accurate of me to say this doesn't affect your opinion. It does.
So I'm honestly just curious: If you didn't like this film, why?
Have a great weekend,
