"Wrath of the Titans" is a big special effects spectacle, that tries to be entertaining, however it's a film that ultimately falls prey of many cliches. Amongst the cliches, there is the reluctant main hero having to deal with the legacy of his father, the funny sidekick, the strong resourceful female figure. The film is terminally badly written - there isn't a cliche that this film doesn't touch, and it's painful to watch actors such as Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, having to deal with such inane dialogue. The special effects feel at certain points poorly executed - this is without a doubt a film that doesn't work in any department. For all the noise that it creates, it's certainly sad to see that it offers no substance and no entertainment. A terrible film to be avoided at all costs.
