Blantant exposition                ✓
noisy visual                            ✓
awful dialogue                       ✓
disorientating fight scene     ✓✓✓
fight scene                            ✓
off walks Worthington           ✓
more noisy visual                  ✓
even more noisy visual          ✓✓

the good:
- ?

the bad:
- most performances, including Ralph Fiennes, whom I normally respect
- I thought the fire monster looked good, but it didn't need to be in slow motion all the time
- the cyclops special effects looked partly cheap
- everything that FRR said

Time for my first detailed review.
 
First off, the 3-D is MUCH better than last time around. That's not saying much, but still. The special effects aren't as good as the first one's, but they're still good. The last half hour had a couple of cool action in it. Not enough to save the movie though. Zeus and a now good Hades fighting together was cool and Zeus flying into Kronos was too. Mainly because the camera didn't go all shaky. Bill Nighy has a fun cameo as Hephaestus and Toby Kebbell (the only good part of The Sorcerer's Apprentice) is decent as Poseidon's bastard son.
 
The script for this is moronic. A few good risks, like killing off Zeus, aside it's completelt predictable. On the acting front, Edgar Ramirez is hilariously bad as Ares and Rosamond Pike is pretty stiff. Neeson and Fiennes are only here to collect paychecks.
 
If Sam Worthington was replaced with a mannequin in a decorative face-mask, would anyone notice? Another issue is the misogyny involving Andromeda. She's, supposedly, a battle queen, but she doesn't actually win a fight during the whole movie! But, the biggest problem is easily Jonathan Liebesman and his love affair with shaky-cam. During the fight with the minotaur, me and my dad had no idea what the Hell was going on!
 
I hope everyone likes the new review style. Grade: D-

In what categories should the movie be considered?

Of course... as long as you still make your "Good, Bad & Ugly" and "9 Levels" every once in a while.

Worst Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor (Ramirez, maybe Neeson if his role in Battlesh*t is small enough and if what I heard about Taken 2 is true), Supporting Actress (Pike), Screenplay, Screen Couple/Ensemble, and Prequel, Remake, Rip-off, or Sequel.
 
Also, we've got the first Home-Run/Strike-Out of the year:* Liam Neeson (The Grey/Wrath Of The Titans)
 
*Unless you're a Hunger Games fan which means that the first is actually Wes Bentley (Hunger Games/Gone and Underworld 4) or Elizabeth Banks (Hunger Games/Man On A Ledge)

In unneccessary+too many noisy visuals and most disorientating fights.
But seriously, Sam Worthington should be on the longlist for WA. He doesn't make you feel for his hero at all. Completely forgettable performance.

Unlike SchumacherH8ter, I didn't like the ending with Zeus crumbling to dust. But I think there are worse scripts coming our way.

mbh, it's not that I liked him crumbling into dust: the thing that I liked about it was that it was a major risk killing off a major character played by the most bankable actor in the film. About the only thing this does better than Hunger Games is that it takes risks. That and the end fight with Kronos are the only reasons why this didn't get an F.

Agreed. And I forgot, it is definitely a contender for Worst Sequel.

-Supp. Actor for Edgar Ramírez.
-Supp. Actress for Rosamund Pike.
-Director.
-Screenplay.
-Remake/Sequel.

It didn't.

Let's hope Wrath of the Titans gets a worst picture and worst remake/ripoff/sequel nod and Sam Worthington gets a worst actor nod.
 
Unfortunately, there may be little hope of averting yet another sequel.  Wrath of the Titans' budget was $150 million, and its worldwide take was $301 million, according to Box Office Mojo.  It was profitable.
