This movie is literally banking on the success of "300" knowing its fans will come out in hordes to see this film which is a fictional version of Greek mythology. Or that is to say, "Inspired by an actual myth." I was disappointed in the story line. If you are going to spend $75 million on a movie, spend more than a dime on the script. And who came up with that ridiculous looking Venus Fly-Trap hood? What was most sad was that these are really good actors, but you couldn't tell it from this film.If you are a fan of Greek mythology or a decent script, you might want to skip this one. If you like 3-D CG violence, go for it or better yet, wait for the DVD and fast forward to the fight scenes at the end. "Everybody was Kung-fu fighting..."

Brief sex, brief nudity. 3 stars is generous.

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?

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.

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.

A brave young stonemason assembles a fierce band of warriors to prevent an evil king from acquiring the artifact that will permit him to rule the world in this epic mythological fantasy from visionary filmmaker Tarsem Singh. King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) is a brutal tyrant on a bloody mission to seek out the mythical Bow of Epirus. Should he succeed, even the gods of Olympus will be forced to bow before him. In his efforts to locate the invincible and elusive weapon, Hyperion leads his Heraklion army on a brutal rampage across Greece, razing every town in their path, and killing with impunity. When the Hyperions lay waste to his village and cut down his mother in cold blood, vengeful stonemason Theseus (Henry Cavill) emerges from the rubble determined to make the king pay for his crimes. Later, the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), experiences a vision of Theseus' future that convinces her he will play a pivotal role in defeating King Hyperion. Armed with that supernatural knowledge, she agrees to help Theseus assemble a small army capable of defeating the tyrannical king and preventing him from enslaving the entire human race. Stephen Dorff, Kellan Lutz, and John Hurt co-star.
