Did we really need a sequel to the 2010 clunker-of-a-remake Clash of the Titans? Absolutely not, but Wrath of the Titans opens nationwide today. Like the first movie, Wrath of the Titans stars the rapidly fading Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson, but this installment was directed by hack director Jonathan Liebesman, who directed the craptastic Battle Los Angeles, instead of hack director Louis Leterrier, who directed the only bad recent Marvel Studios film, The Incredible Hulk.
It’s a sad day when millions of dollars are once again wasted on a high-concept sci-fi film, which falls far short of delivering the goods. Hack Director Jonathan Liebesman is behind the latest alien invasion film, Battle: Los Angeles.
Liebesman’s first feature, Darkness Falls (2003), wasn’t necessarily horrible, but certainly nothing memorable (let’s not even touch his attempt at a Texas Chainsaw prequel in 2006). The biggest disappoint here is that Battle: Los Angeles (the film) was preceded by the fabulous Battle: Los Angeles (the trailer).
