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.

This film could have been made wholly in digital imaging format, there was so much action and violence that acting was almost unnecessary. The emphasis seemed to be on creating clever effects. I normally enjoy stories based on legends of the Gods etc. but this was too juvenile in its approach for my taste.

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.
