I am one of those who loved the original Clash of the Titans, and was very resistant to seeing the remake. I hate it when Hollywood messes with classics. I saw a lot of bad reviews. But then I decided to give it a try.\n\nI went into with the mentality \"It's a movie, it's supposed to be entertaining; judge it for what it is, not what it copied.\" When I did that, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I found it very entertaining and watched it twice the same day I bought it, then immediately went online at Walmart and ordered this steelbook version of Wrath of the Titans (I also got the steelbook Clash of the Titans from Walmart). They both offer some slightly different versions of the story, which made it a little more fresh than watching a modernized replica.\n\nThe second one is a little light on special features unlike the first one, but overall I was highly satisfied and entertained. The storytelling was good, the acting was great, the special effects were excellent. Very entertaining. Don't go in with expectations. Judge it on its own merits. You won't be disappointed.
If the talk had been surgically removed, leaving only the sights and sounds of combat, this could have been a striking, semiabstract display of aggressive energy; as it is, any viewer over twelve will go for the laughs.
It begins with not one but two prologues; one character turns up out of nowhere, his introduction no doubt left on the cutting-room floor; and the paltry 85-minute running time includes 15 minutes of end credits.
