Wrath Of The Titans

Everything about Wrath Of The Titans is bigger than its predecessor Clash Of The Titans.  The monsters are bigger and badder, the special effects and CGI are bigger and bolder, the fights are humongous (after all, we are talking about the gods) and the storyline is much more down to earth and believable.

Liam Neeson returns as Zeus and Sam Worthington his human son Perseus in a (pardon the pun) titanic battle between the gods.  

Kronos is free from his prison (father of Zeus, Hades and Poseidon) and he, along with the Titans, battle the gods.  Hades (played to villainous perfection by Ralph Fiennes) betrays and manages to capture Zeus and bring him to the Underworld .  It's up to Perseus to free him, save his family and humanity.

One problem-Perseus is one rusty warrior.  For the past 10 years he has been content to lead the life of a simple fisherman and raise his son.  But, when his son and father are threatened he must reluctantly take on the mantle of the half-human warrior and set about slaying man, beast and god.
