Poster for the movie "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Ticked all the required boxes to get in all the backstory and references, quotes and quoteables. However, it didn’t really hit the spot – definitely a teenage movie. Some of the set pieces also felt like they were borrowed from other big budget franchises (e.g. deploying the lethal gas from the top of the tower and the subsequent showdown). Not very original.

Poster for the movie "Wrath of the Titans"

Wrath of the Titans

A big improvement on the first one, this was simply a roller-coaster action movie set against the mythological backdrop. A customary hat-tip to most of the myths lavished with large-scale Hollywood ideas. Not much to stimulate the intellect, but creative and action-packed.

Wrath of the Titans

20121 h 39 min
Overview

A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus-the demigod son of Zeus-is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon.
