Movie Review: Wrath of the Titans
Wrath of the Titans is a father/son relationship story. Its a sequel to the Clash of the Titans 2010 movie. Throughout the movie, it focuses on relationships between fathers and also between brothers. The first father/son relationship we see is Perseus and his son Helius. Perseus has absolute devotion to his son Helius, particularly after his wife has died. Zeus and his brother Poseidon, brothers who are close to each other, are both absent fathers for their half mortal sons. Chronos, father to Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon, is a hostile father who wants to destroy his sons. Ares hates his father Zeus because he perceives Perseus as Zeus's favorite son. The relationships between these gods change throughout the movie, but the one unchanging this is Perseus's love for his son. The movie itself moved at a good pace, and the action scenes and special effects were good. This is a wonderful movie.
