Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman takes the helm of what promises to be an even more epic installment of the Titans franchise, with the monstrous Kraken making way for the new colossus entity of evil known as Kronos (you know the one…….half lava, half dark ash cloud monster). Set ten years after its predecessor, Wrath begins with Perseus (Worthington) once again trying to resume his normal life, as both father and fisherman. The Gods will once again spoil his efforts, this time however it is his assistance they require. It seems the humans have turned away from their once beloved Gods and as a result the Gods are losing their power and more importantly their hold on the evil Titans. Breaking free and reeking havoc on Earth, the Titans threaten to destroy everything in their path. Zeus implores Perseus to take up arms and help tip the balance back in their favour.
Wrath hopes to improve on every aspect of Clash not just in terms of scale and action but in story and character development and with Worthington, Neeson and Fiennes all back on board, it would appear on paper that they have a winning match. However will this translate onto the screen……
