Review: I went into this film without high expectations hoping it would be as much fun as the first one but not to much worse of a film. What I got was a more serious subject matter but not as much of the action that made the first one enjoyable. The 3D on the Imax was spectacular and the film looks great but I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the first. Not to say the first was that great of a film but it really entertained me and that is sometimes enough for me to like a movie. They completely underused both main villains in the film with Ares not really causing the mayhem you’d expect from the God of War and Kronos was just another Kraken just there to create mayhem but not really doing anything. That being said Edgar Ramirez was still excellent as Ares and I look forward to future performances by him. Sam Worthington was solid as Perseus as well as Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes. I was still entertained though and would recommend seeing it in theaters for the 3D alone. C+
