IF you're one those people wanting to know whether the visual graphic effects in the movie ‘The Wrath of the Titans is worth watching, let me tell you about the reaction of the viewers when the screen went blank right in the middle of an action scene. The movie had just started in 3D version and the Village Six cinema was jam-packed. In one particular scene, the camera descends through a crack in the ground all the way to the underworld where the god of the underworld, Hades plans an attack against the almighty Zeus with his fire throwing demons. It's also the first part of the movie where the hi-tech graph effects begin. The very detailed image of monstrous beasts in the underworld was remarkable coupled with superb surround sound extravaganza. I was immediately taken away by the fight scene and graphic effects. All of a sudden the screen went blank.
Everybody shouted as the lights automatically switched on inside the cinema. There was no picture but the sound was still on. So we could still hear the fight between the two gods and the beastly growling of the Hades demons. I was expecting the screen to get back to normalcy but the movie kept playing without visual until people started shouting out to the operator angrily. One annoyed viewer behind me shouted "Rewind! Rewind!.
I didn't blame the sudden screen failure for the viewers' outbursts but the fact that the screen went blank amid a high drama scene. I definitely agreed that scene deserved a rewind. The demons seemed so real with the 3D glasses and the graph effects were amazing. The movie will keep you at the edge of your seat when balls of fire, falling rocks, fire breathing monsters come crashing into your 3D glasses effects
A few of the audience stepped out to inform staff. After five minutes they replayed the fight scene.
Anyway if you haven't seen the movie, it's a continuation from ‘Clash of the Titans. Perseus the demigod and son of Zeus turn the page to a new adventure in Wrath of the Titans. Just like the first movie, he goes to rescue his father Zeus from Hades and fights off the menace beats from the pits of hell.
However unlike the first movie he goes up against something stronger than the Gods, much more powerful than Zeus and Hades put together. They call him Cronus, the mega giant fire beast. Cronus is pictured on the big poster at Village Six. Cronus is Zeus and Hades father who returns for revenge.
However Perseus is not alone, he is joined by the son of Poseidon who is kind of like the comedian in the movie and Queen Andromeda's army. On the other side Ares, Zeus other son betrays him and joins Hades. Hades and Aries successfully resurrect powerful Cronus after draining Zeus powers and Perseus is left to save the world again.
