Storyline - Written by Warner Bros. Pictures: 
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, ('Clash of the Titans') 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. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus' godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramírez), switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans' strength grows stronger as Zeus' remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon's demigod son Agenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.

Reviewers' Comments:
>So bad it will make your eyes bleed.
>Action packed, and better than the first.
>Offers a lot of intense action sequences.
>Creatures this time are much more inventive.
>Decent 3D and visuals, but lacking plot.
>Story is better than 1st one, even though dialogues are weak. More light- hearted.
>Acting was fair and the plot was not complicated-thin material.
>The 3D was used nicely and didn't come off as a total gimmick.
>An entertaining experience, despite not being excellent.
>Don't watch it with pre-conceived ideas based on actual Greek mythology, but rather loosely based on the stories.
>Most of the characters were dull; the comic relief was dull! On a positive note, Liam Neeson and Ray Finnes were awesome as always.
>If you watch the movie with an open mind and can accept a shallow storyline, then the action and special effects make for some decent entertainment.
