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.

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.

Here's the plot (spoiler alert!) : Good guy Theseus (Henry Cavill) wants to kill bad guy Hyperion (Mickey Rourke). He does so.

It's visually pretty, hence the one star, but intellectually empty. No story, no character development, and it doesn't even try to look like ancient Greece.

Oh yes, John Hurt is in it too. I hope they paid him handsomely for his wasted time. Unless you really have nothing better to do, don't waste yours by watching this. I thought it might improve as time ticked by. It didn't.

This is the story of Theseus, illegitimate son of an outcast peasant woman, who is favoured by the Gods. His task is to stand against an evil villain who seeks to rule the world by using a mythical bow to release ancient immortals. Sounds like it should be a great film, doesn't it? Well, for me it fell short in many ways.

Don't get me wrong - the acting is ok. Mickey Rourke is great as the villain, even managing to rise above a terrible script with bad one-liners. John Hurt, as always puts in a great performance, as does Freida Pinto as the virginal oracle. However, Henry Cavill seems wrong as the hero Theseus. His acting is ok, so it may be his very modern haircut. The cinematography seems to be trying to emulate the 300, but it doesn't work. There are a lot of slow-motion action sequences, but they don't pack the punch that the 300 carried. And the Gods? Well, for me Gods in gold lame spinning around like Wonder Woman then slowing down so their shiny cloaks can billow out dramatically were nothing but laughable. It's more "Jason and the Argonauts" than "300" and that might be being unkind to Jason.

I only watched the whole film because I was multi-tasking at the time, and couldn't be bothered to turn it off. Not recommended, even if you wanna waste 2 hours.
