I tried to summon my inner 12-year-old for this sequel, but even kids might object to the subversion of Greek mythology presented here…starting with the premise that the Gods of Olympus are losing their powers. That’s why Zeus (played again by Liam Neeson) asks his half-human son Perseus (Sam Worthington) for his help to keep the dark forces from taking over. Those forces are represented by Hades (a returning Ralph Fiennes) and his nasty son Ares (Édgar Ramírez), not to mention Kronos, the father of Zeus and Hades.
RT @leonardmaltin: 'Before Midnight' is never uninteresting…but it doesn’t flow as easily or seem as organic as the first two films http://t.co/6ZzpthAQRhPosted 2 hours ago

Ugh. Was afraid of that. MT @leonardmaltin: The Hangover 3 is a dreary, lamebrain comedy that ruins whatever fond memories we had of the 1stPosted 2 hours ago
It's rare that @leonardmaltin can't find something nice to say about a movie. Hangover 3 is one of those times. http://t.co/3vVxY7QiUaPosted 3 hours ago
