The problem with this movie is I've only left it 20 minutes ago and I have already gone from thinking "it's about as good or a bit better than the first" to "meh, that movie sort of sucked" ... so imagine how i'll feel in 20 more minutes...
The problem with this film is the characters.
This movie is about Perseus just like the first one. I am supposed to care about him, believe in him, look up to him, want to go to war with him. Except I don't. I don't care about him or any of his stupid family or friends. Maybe it's a poorly written character or maybe Sam Worthington's acting just doesn't portray hero ish qualities. But I just do not give a fuck about him. He's not a hero. Maximus, that's a hero. Spartacus, that's a hero. And the actors who portray make me believe.
Then this movie has its token useless character that big budget popcorn flicks love to add. In this case it's Andromeda who does nothing at all in this movie to make me think she was worth writing into the script. And I love me some Rosamund Pike, I want to bone that chick until my heart expires, but she was useless. She didn't help and her stupid army didn't help. When you go to war with demons and other hellish creatures an army with swords and spears is as inept as JJ talking to girls.
The big bad bad bad monster we are supposed to fear.. .just like the kraken in the first is easily dispatched by a hero who I would wipe my ass with.
I am a big Neeson fan, but not even he's that great in this.
Ralph Fiennes.. mehhhhhhh
The best part of this movie aside from Pike eyecandy is Bill Nighy who plays a cooky Hephaestus who you can tell is enjoying his role and his few scenes are the best in the movie.
Édgar Ramírez was decent as Ares. Glad to see a Bourne baddy get another role
I didn't find the backdrop in which are characters travel through very interesting either. I was bored most of the movie.
One: Phoebe Tonkin Two: Dianna Agron Three: Debby Ryan
