Product Description

Rourke/Cavill/Pinto ~ Immortals

From Amazon.co.uk

Director Tarsem Singh never, ever, shortchanges you on his visuals. Presented in razor-sharp 1080p, and in 3D too, Immortals is a busy, dramatic and sparkling home cinema demonstration. It hardly skimps on the action, either.

Said action kicks off as Mickey Rourke’s King Hyperion amasses an army, with the intention of waging war on humankind. This he does quite successfully, until the small matter of Henry Cavill’s Theseus interjects. It turns out that Theseus has been chosen by Zeus to do battle with Hyperion, and that’s pretty much all you need to know, before settling down to a couple of hours of medieval fantasy battling.

Anyone familiar with 300 will know the score here. Story isn’t Immortals’ strength, instead giving way to wave after wave of blockbuster carnage. There’s some terrific CG work at play here, too, that makes good use of 3D. And rarely isn’t something of note happening on the screen.

The extra features are good, with the Blu-ray boasting a pair of alternative endings, along with a different opening too. The ones chosen for the final cut edge them out, but it’s interesting to see what else was considered. There’s some more traditional deleted material, too, and some welcome insights courtesy of the behind the scenes footage. It all rounds off a strong package, for a relentlessly entertaining film, warts and all. --Jon Foster --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars I have plenty of women.... 7 May 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land.

Mad with power, King Hyperion has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares.

Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge.

In the king's hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods.

But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man's conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion, until a peasant named Theseus comes forth as their only hope.

Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes.

As you would expect from an artist such as Tarsem Singh (a director who extends his name by one word each movie), the film is beautiful to look at. And in one instance, I was expecting something more arty than 300, the film it's destined to be compared to.

Then we meet the characters and it's back to basics really.

I cannot fault the acting, it's brilliant and Cavill and Rourke seem to be having a blast, and the support too is spot on.

It's just that in between all the psychedelic images we see on scree, there is dialogue so clunky and inane, it's very hard to swallow.

The fight scenes are okay, but it's nothing you haven't seen before, and the basic story is something straight out of Harry Hamlins loin cloth.

But thanks to a tremendous turn from Rourke and some of the years finest imagery, Immortals is one of those films you can just sit back, and go with it.

And the 3D doesn't hurt either, it really shows that in the right hands, 3D could be something wonderful, and not a gimmick.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not that bad..... 19 Jun 2014
Format:Blu-ray
OK, I don't write many reviews but thought I would add my view after reading some of the comments made.

I concur with most that this film does not have much of a story or plot but I believe the action and the CGI make up for this. I personally love the genre and one of the first films I ever watched was the original 'Clash of the Titans' on VHS so I appreciate I may be slightly biased on this. The movie flows nicely and the action, for me, maintained my interest throughout the film.

This is a film to buy when on special offer and get out once a year on a miserable Sunday afternoon - just sit back, turn off brain and enjoy.

If your into films with a cracking story and a brilliant twist I recommend 'Devil' - not much spent on CGI but the story is great, imho.

Immortals may be dark in places but the opulent beauty of the scenes makes up for the shallow plot.
Not being a classicist, I am unsure if the story is any deeper, but the idea of the Titans is an appealing one.
The film was beautifully photographed but there were some dark scenes, not great on a laptop.
TS always fills the screen with vision, beauty and detail; from Hyperion's masks to the cage of the Titans; always a feast to the eyes.
1 star reviews have sort of missed the plot and were probably looking for an Orwellian storyline?
This film deserves a great rating for allowing the viewer to travel to another world.
TSingh never disappoints.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, not terrible 9 Oct 2014
Format:DVD
Visually, this is a great film. As far as the storyline goes, not so much. The plot is basic and if it weren't for the effects, set decoration and costumes (with the exception of the headpieces worn by the gods, which are verging on the ridiculous) I think my attention would have waned. The film's take on the minotaur is interesting and the costumes of Hyperion's other minions are good, but the gods are not convincing in the slightest.

The one stand-out performance is that of Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion. With his voice and presence, he brings a definite power and threat to the role. It's such a shame his performance wasn't part of a better film, as it was with the fantastic Sin City

I bought the Clash of the Titans remake at the same time and I have to say it wins hands down when it comes to which I'd watch if I had the choice, as does its sequel Wrath of the Titans.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Horrid Movie 27 Aug 2012
By nje
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A truly horrid mess of a movie with no substance, no plot and no depth to the characters they serve up.
This is the type of movie that kills a genre that movies like 300 and Gladiator created.
The actors gave hollow, amateurish performances, the over stylised production falls flat on it's face (even in 3D) and the plot seems like it formulated by a bunch of movie execs.
Believe me, you will want to give this movie a miss.
It's got nothing original or interesting to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars bash up the titans 18 Nov 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Well, I've just got back from seeing Immortals at my local cinema, and, unlike the other reviewers (so far)...I loved it! The movie is basically a mash-up of 'Clash Of The Titans' and '300' (it even climaxes with our heroes defending a narrow pass from a huge army). There's plenty of slow-mo battle action, but on top of that there are several scenes when the gods descend from Mt Olympus to kick villain butt, including a fantastic climactic battle between Zeus and his fellow Olympians and the newly-freed Titans. If you enjoyed '300' you'll love these scenes as the fighting is brutal. I was surprised at how violent the film was. I thought I spotted one obvious cut (when Hyperion kills Cassander) and after checking the BBFC website it seems that the film was cut by 18 seconds to get a '15' certificate'. The BBFC website also states that 'An uncut 18 classification was available', so maybe we'll get an uncut version on Blu-Ray. The director, Tarsem, is famous for his visuals (he directed 'The Cell' and 'The Fall') and the film looks great, and after seeing Henry Cavill in action I can see why he has been cast as Superman. He actually bears quite a resemblance to Christopher Reeves. The 3D in the film seemed designed to create depth of field rather than shove things in your face, so I don't think you'll really be missing anything if you only see it in 2D. I've read that the movie studios think that audiences are too sophisticated to want to see gimmicky 3D, but frankly, if I'm paying extra to see a movie in that extra D, I expect more bangs for my buck (and more things whizzing out of the screen and over my head)!
If you accept Immortals for what it is-a fun 'popcorn' movie-you'll have a great time watching it. Hopefully it will do well, as the ending clearly sets up a possible sequel, which promises more of a focus on the war between the Gods, which could be epic.
