The picture quality of this Blu-ray is dark, but very good overall. Fine detail is exceptional, although occasionally difficult to notice due to the darkness of the picture. I encountered no issues whatsoever with the audio quality of the film. Dialogue and sound effects were crystal-clear.
Like many people, I was expecting a film similar to 300, due to the style and nature of the movie. In some ways it is very similar, and in some ways it is different. Most of the sets are very small; not much bigger than what you would see in a play. I personally like this style, as it gives the film an unusual quality similar to that of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Unlike 300, the fighting in the film is not overly stylish, nor is there an excessive amount of it. Though there is indeed quite a bit of violence, it actually serves a legitimate narrative purpose in this film. It's not just violence for the sake of showing violence on screen, which is a change I found quite refreshing.
The thing that impressed me the most, is the seriousness with which the story takes itself. Whereas a film like 300 comes off as more of a comic book experience, Inmortals has a strong focus on drama and mythology. Comedy and sensationalism are basically nonexistent in this movie. Overall, it surprised me. There's an emphasis here on character development and dialogue, and the film has a very unique look. The movie was well cast, well acted, and a pleasant deviation from the experience I was expecting.
