Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell) and the producers of 300 unleash an epic tale of a power-mad king who razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, while a heroic villager rises up against him. More

Bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus - a weapon powerful enough to overthrow the Gods of Olympus. As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill, soon to play the caped one in the rebooted Superman) vows to avenge the death of his mum who perished in one of Hyperion's raids. Phaedra (Freida Pinto) has visions of Theseus' future and becomes convinced that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and takes on the King. Hide

Steve Newall Flicks Writer

Tarsem Singh’s previous films have been triumphs of style over substance. I mean that in the best possible way, especially in the case of the astonishingly over-the-top The Fall. The idea of Singh’s visual sensibility colliding head on with a fantasy blockbuster, in 3D no less, was therefore exhilarating. You can feel the “but” coming though, can’t you? Immortals could have fused Singh’s earlier works with post-300 Hollywood – but it doesn’t. More

Much of his familiar imagery is intact in the form of great costumes, surreal use of CGI and dudes wearing masks and body paint. But the visual craziness has been diluted – a more mainstream audience is clearly in mind – and therefore there’s a need for serious storytelling ability, especially given that Immortals’ narrative is (very) loosely based on Greek mythology. That’s where the problem lies. The sets may look great, extravagantly built one moment and resembling a ‘70s matte painting that’s mind-bogglingly painted in 3D the next, but the acting on them? Jeez…

The dialogue doesn’t do the cast any favours, a hodge-podge of nonsense that is just really there to stitch together cool fight scenes and sets. The delivery is like rehearsals for a second rate theatre production – pompous, lifeless, and a bit awkward. For some reason Mickey Rourke and Stephen Dorff are in this too, and, just like the early ‘80s pseudo-epics this most closely resembles, they seem to be on board just to lend some C-list actor recognition.

Immesurable

RealityCheck Flicks Superstar (?)

It was (of cos) similar to 300, seems there is a little fad of fighting films and Greek mythology. Its pretty good, even more so if you know your Greek mythology otherwise its easy to get a bit lost in the plot. good graphics and sets, not to mention acting, even if the 3D was a little flat looking. So my guess is filmed normal, then made into 3D. Great fighting scenes and of cos bodies...
Genre : fighting, action, fantasy
4/5 : thinking about what this is film is about & how its made its pretty good

Blood & guts

Coraliee Flicks Superstar (?)

If you are into blood, guts and gore, then this is the movie of the year for you. Bright red blood spraying from severed arteries and limbs, scenes that make you cringe with the unimaginable. Swords, battons, axes, weapons I don't even know the names of. Battle after battle... it was all a bit too much for me...and in 3D it just made all the blood and guts far too close for comfort. The husband loved it of course - but I had my eyes squeezed shut through most of it!

Press Reviews

A.V. Club (USA)

It isn’t any smarter than its inspirations, just prettier. Full review.

Chicago Sun-Times (Roger Ebert)

Without doubt the best-looking awful movie you will ever see. Full review.

Empire (UK)

It has more than enough blood, guts and glamour to satisfy. Full review.

Entertainment Weekly (USA)

What saves Immortals as a moviegoing experience is the exuberant, kid-in-a-candy-store virtuosity of its director. Full review.

Guardian (UK)

An entertaining if not entirely studious classical mythology yarn. Full review.

Hollywood Reporter

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. Full review.

Observer (UK)

It's a murky, addled affair, the CGI effects are third-rate and the violence makes it unsuitable for young audiences. Full review.

Total Film (UK)

Good-looking to a fault, Immortals boasts moments of undeniable grandeur. Elsewhere, though, it is deathly dull. Full review.
