There isn't too much to say about Wrath Of The Titans. This film is a "by the numbers" blockbuster with just enough plot that will keep you interested and an abundance of pretty pictures to keep you dazzled. I think what impressed me most was that the 3D was much improved when compared to the mediocre job done on the theatrical release of Clash Of The Titans 3D in 2010.
Other than that it was a decent adventure tale with Perseus and his merry band of warriors including the demigod son of Poseidon (Danny Huston), Agenor (Toby Kebbell), and “Queen” Andromeda (Rosamund Pike). The stunts were cool and the special effects were extra-large. For me it was a finely crafted light show with decent performances from the whole ensemble.
So, yeah, if you plan to see Wrath Of The Titans because of it's tear-jerking, soul-stirring theatrics then prepare to have some of your dreams dashed. This is a quest film with lots of emphasis on action and computer generated graphics that will make you go agape with wonder and awe. The 3D tech is better this time so if you were worried about spending your extra dough on that you can cast your concerns to the Underworld. If you want a good time with awesome visuals and simplified plot points then Wrath Of The Titans is your solution.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part II (11/16/12) – Not much revealed in the teaser but it's crystal clear that Bella will be back and she will be a vampire. I can't wait to see her daddy's reaction. That'll be priceless, fer sure. Starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. http://www.breakingdawn-themovie.com/
Girl In Progress (4/27/12) – A young girl struggles to mature while her mother can't seem to reign in her own “inner child”. This coming-of-age “dramedy” has already got my motor revving with the predominantly Latino cast featuring Eva Mendes, Raini Rodriguez and Eugenio Derbez. But the plot also looks intriguing with the single mom losing control and her young daughter trying to grasp control before she's ready. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVVK5gihPnQ
