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.

This review is for the Region 2 DVD release of the film: "Immortals"
As this film has had loads of reviews I'll make this one short.
Had the director NOT filmed in dim/low light throughout a great deal of the films length (was there an electric power shortage?) AND with the ridiculous use of tinting filters it would certainly have made for a much kinder viewing on the eyes. As it is, in parts I found myself straining my eyes to actually see what was on the screen. The tinting made the colours look unnatural and did nothing to improve the overall viewing experience.
Why was it not shoot in good old Technicolour?

The film tells the tale of 'Theseus'(Henry Cavill) a well trained young warrior living the life of a peasant in a small Grecian community.
An invasion is imminent, 'King Hyperion'( Mickey Rourke) is in search of the legendary long lost 'Bow' which has special powers.
The peasants are told to wait until the morning before moving into the fortified area, however, it' proves to be too late as the invading forces sweep into the small encampment killing all but a few.
The survivors including 'Theseus' are to be sent to work in the salt mines.
However the survivors are helped to escape their captors, 'Theseus' goes back to his home to give his mother who he'd been forced to see killed at the hands of the invading king, a proper funeral in accordance to tradition.
It is at this time, 'Theseus' stumbles across the much sought 'Bow' soon learning it's power.
Now 'Theseus' sets out to rally the few to face the many, and fulfil his destiny.
The 'Gods' who are only supposed to look on are set to get involved.
This is a really good watch in both 3D and 2D, maybe not as intense in battle as some of the battle classics we've seen in recent years, however it is visually impressive with some pretty good battle sequences, certainly worthy of at least a viewing if not adding to your collection.

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.

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.
