WRATH OF THE TITANS is a fantasy action adventure sequel based on characters and events from Ancient Greek mythology. Perseus, a demigod trying to live a quiet life as a fisherman, is once again pressed into action when Kronos, a Titan and the father of Zeus, Poseidon and other gods, is released from the underworld. The film was classified '12' for moderate fantasy violence and threat.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'Moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood, but occasional gory moments may be permitted if justified by the context'. There are some crunchy blows, although very little is seen in terms of gore or injury detail. Furthermore, the protagonists are mostly gods, demigods or mythological creatures and the fantastical and mythological setting lessens the impact of the violence. Moderate threat occurs in scenes involving some of the scarier monsters, for example Perseus' battle with a fire-breathing monster, the pursuit of Perseus and his companions by a giant Cyclops, and the appearance towards the end of the film of Kronos. These scenes are too prolonged and intense to be permitted at 'PG' and are more appropriately classified at '12' where the Guidelines state disturbing sequences should not be frequent or sustained.

WRATH OF THE TITANS also includes some mild bad language, including uses of 'bloody' and 'bastard'.
