Wrath of the Titans

| June 25, 2012

The epic sequel Wrath of the Titans comes to BlueRay 3D Combo Pack, BluRay Combo Pack, and on single disc DVD on June 26th, 2012.

It has been a decade since Perseus (Sam Worthington), the demigod son of Zeus (Liam Neeson), defeated the monstrous Kraken. Now he lives the simple life of a village fisherman and looks to the care and education of his 10-year old son, Helius. Even as Perseus attempts to maintain stability and ignore the struggles going on among his god-like kin, a battle for supremacy rages between those very gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their fearsome leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld.

When Perseus’ half-brother Ares (Edgar Ramirez) and Hades conspire to capture Zeus and free Kronos, the demigod can no longer ignore the demands of family and must take up sword and venture out to do battle once again with the Titans.

The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans, and save mankind.

Once again, special effects are astounding to behold in this sequel to the blockbuster hit, Clash of the Titans. At times they fly blindingly fast across the screen and I am sure when seen in 3D must be something to see. In BluRay they are certainly amazing enough.

The story holds up well from start to finish, although the myths are bent somewhat beyond recognition in places. Still, these films are all about the escapist fun and Director Johnathan Liebesman provides that in abundance. And the biggest stars of these films are always the special effects and the artists who spent so many hours creating them.

Extras included on the BluRay are:

– Battling the Chimera
– Who Are The Titans?
– Agenor: The Other Demi-God
– The Cyclops Fight

Warner Home Video releases Wrath of the Titans starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, and Ralph Fiennes on BluRay 3D Combo Pack, BluRay Combo Pack, and single-disc DVD on June 26, 2012.
