More Thoughts on Wrath of the Titans

You know what this movie is like? This is like the original Conan movie with Arnold. For those of you who don't know, the original Conan movie is one of those classic examples of being "classically bad". It's corny as hell, but there are parts of it that are enjoyable, and has a good cast. For Conan, it had Arnold playing the hero, Max Von Sydow as the wise old king and James Earl Jones as the ruthless villain. In Wrath of the Titans, you have a similar deal where Sam Worthington is the hero, but then you got Liam Neeson doing what he does best which is the wise old father-figure and Ralph Fiennes doing what he does best which is the villain. So is it cheesy? Most definitely yes, but will you regret seeing it? Well I didn't, and neither did my friends, and if you go into this movie like we did, you will definitely enjoy it. The 3D is one of the better examples I've seen in recent years, the action is cool, and the absence of greek gods that only helped in damning the first movie are actually made up for in this one. And when you do see the titans themselves they are pretty dang cool, and are very much what I imagined they would look like when I was learning about this stuff in school.

So, what is my final grade?

B- because I feel generous. Again, it was bad, and left a lot of room for accidental jokes, but it had it's redeemable parts that did make for an enjoyable experience
