The 25 Worst Movies of 2012

16. Wrath of the Titans

Director: Jonathan Liebesman
Stars: Sam Worthington, Rosamund Pike, Edgar Ramirez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell, Danny Huston, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes

How bad is Wrath of the Titans, the sword-and-sorcery sequel to Clash of the Titans that nobody wanted, directed by the dude who bludgeoned us with last year's horrifically inept Battle: Los Angeles? Mere months after seeing it, we can't recall anything about its plot, and that's because there really isn't one in the first place.

Sam Worthington, once again staking his claim as Hollywood's most robotic action movie star (but an entertaining bar fighter), reprises the character of Perseus in name and theory only; in reality, he's little more than an anonymous physical presence running away from CGI monsters that Peter Jackson must have rejected from his Lord of the Rings films. As for Worthington's co-stars, a venerable array of genuine talent that includes Liam Neeson, the underrated Rosamund Pike, and Edgar Ramirez, all of whom are underserved here...well, at least they're not Sam Worthington.
