Immortals

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.

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.

Navigating the film's mounting erotic bloodlust proves tedious, until the show-stopping final battle between gods and Titans in one chamber, Theseus and Hyperion in another, at which point logic melts away completely and the pic's raison d'etre emerges -- namely, to justify staging a fight scene for the ages.

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

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

An entertaining if not entirely studious classical mythology yarn.

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

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.

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

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

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

I left this movie about three quarters of the way through. You know when it's crap when your mind wanders to other things and you lose focus on the actual movie. Very disappointed as I was expecting so much more. The fight scenes were good, but the acting - to be honest - was terrible. I wish I had gone to see Puss in Boots instead which was on around...
