Fortunately, the Titans production team threw a bit less at us in the way of breathtaking visual intricacy — such as that of the too-frenetic Transformer movies, which I sometimes had a hard time following and lost interest in as a result.
Special Effects. Being me, I HAD to like the flying horse, but there were some other effects that were even better.
For instance, there’s a two-headed fire-breathing critter that slams through Perseus’ home village, destroying and burning, and it looks scarily real. But there are also numerous scenes of Tartarus, a city-sized three-dimensional construct of stone, that are truly boggling. Some of the shots of escaped Father of the Gods Chronus are fabulously weighty.
A lot of the movie is surprisingly touching. Liam Neeson is more emotionally involving this time as Zeus, Ralph Fiennes gives a nuanced role as Hades, and Rosamund Pike is damned good as Andromeda. Also, this time, there are touches of humor, providing counterbalance and contrast to the action.
Overall: Worth seeing, probably most effective on the big screen.
