  • Summary: 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. (Relativity Media)

    Dashing across the screen in all its bloody, gilded glory, the awesome and beautiful Immortals marks an all-win scenario.

    The film is as faithful to Greek mythology as Thor is to tales of the Norse Gods, but it ultimately doesn't matter. Tarsem's goal is to give viewers an experience a little different from the norm and, to that end, he succeeds. The "wow!" factor is in full evidence.

    As mythic spectacles go, it beats "Clash Of The Titans," particularly in the areas of intimidating villainy and actual Titan-clashing. Nonetheless, it isn't any smarter than its inspirations, just prettier.

    I realize that making Immortals immortal was way too much to ask, but frankly, just a shade more plausible, not to mention pleasurable, would have been nice.

    Given something as simple as Theseus's rousing prebattle speech, maximalist Singh is helpless, but when he gets whole armies in on the act, you've got something to behold.

    Immortals is not only entirely without humor, but is dominated by a lot of huffing and puffing, thunderous self-importance and windy Socratic quotations about the immortality and divinity of men's souls. You just have to roll your eyes after a while.

    Immortals is the latest disaster of post-conversion 3-D, a projected spectacle so dark it is literally hard to see. This is an ugly, burlap sack of a film, stitched with jagged seams and overstuffed with computer-generated chintz, gold-lamé leotards and fetishistic headgear.

    This is definitely the best movie of all time. It's a brutal combination on 1% excellence, and 99% PURE AWESOME. The day before I went to see this movie, I thought I knew what awesome was, but I was so wrong. This movie is more awesome than Zeus and Chuck Norris fighting to the death on a cloud of Ferraris, Nukes, and Bacon while the entire casts of 300, Sin City, Robocop 2 and Tuesdays with Morrie have their collective faces melted off from sheer exposure to awesomeness.

    If you're after a film that doesn't employ too much thinking and is enjoyable to watch (if you were a fan of the 300 style), I would recommend going to see this. The scenery, visuals, fight scenes were definitely up there with 300, perhaps a little more exaggerated, and gory. Would I buy it once it out? Probably not. But it'll certainly make my rental list to watch again! Expand

    The plot is moderately exciting, even if weakling and with some incongruence. But the real reason for see Immortals is how the story is told: A framework moving with slow-motion effect, where the landscape is a still life and battles of the beautiful dances. Expand

    Beowulf tried to one-up 300, They FAILED! Clash of the Titans tried to one-up 300, THEY FAILED even worse. Do i even need to repeat myself for this one? The acting is mediocre, there is action but it doesn't help the story, which has a worse plot than that of the power rangers movie or Barney. Expand

    Several holes in the script and fluctuating epic. good special effects that cover many gaps in the film. A film that ultimately makes you just say these words .. and then? very disappointed Expand

    Sincerely, this movie is simply disgusting. Top contender for: most fake sunsets (really bad lighting of the sets), ridiculous and over the top costumes (mask of Minotaur?), silly story (why Perseus is in that story at all, if story resolution does not depend on him?), bad acting and zombie like titans (really, is that 28 Days Later?).
