Immortals is plain and simply a fun take on Greek mythology. After the Gods fail to answer his prayers, King Hyperion searches for the Epirus Bow in order to release the Titans and destroy the human race. It is up to young Theseus to become the leader he was meant to be and stop this mad King. Sure, the story is thin and the dialogue isn't groundbreaking, but man did those fight scenes deliver the goods. It basically combines elements from Clash of the Titans and 300, only with more blood and extended combat scenes where you can actually see the damage being inflicted. Due to popular demand in the comments section, the next sentence is a SPOILER. I absolutely loved the scene where the Gods came down and fought the Titans at the end. What a beautiful display of visually gory bliss. The CGI was mostly used to great effect, which was a shocker. The way Mount Olympus was portrayed was the best version I have seen, with very little cloud coverage.

The acting from Henry Cavill (aka the new Superman) was more solid than expected, but I thought Mickey Rourke stole the show as the evil King Hyperion. He is the most ruthless and intimidating villain I've seen in recent memory. Darth Vader looks like a nice leader in comparison, because if you fail this guy, you will die in a very unpleasant manner guaranteed. At least Vader gave that dude more than one chance. Luke Evans made a very good Zeus as well.

If you want some excellent and violent action scenes, coupled with some good performances, this is worth seeing. 2-D was good enough for me.

Western literature has been mining Greek mythology ever since the time of the Romans, but the last few years have seen a volume of screen adaptations not seen since Ray Harryhausen was in his prime. The start of the 2000s saw a couple of films set in Ancient Greece but without the gods ("Troy", most notably, then "300", though the latter adopted an oft-copied stylized book that had little to do with reality either), which gave way to myth-based adventures (the "Clash of the Titans" remake, the adaptation of "Percy Jackson and the Olympians"; incidentally, though that latter film was bad, I highly recommend the books it was based on). "Immortals" has, based on the trailers, been pegged as a "300" knockoff with the gods present. There are certainly some similarities, but Singh's visual sense is ultimately much different than Zack Snyder's was (there's a lot more beauty and colour in this world, for starters, whereas Snyder's emphasized earth tones and grime. Plot details are discussed hence, so be warned for spoilers.

In Hellenas (Greece), our hero is Theseus (Henry Cavill, the future Superman) - actually, to get this out of the way, the film uses a bunch of mythological characters' names (Theseus, Phaedra, Lysander, Hyperion), but the characters in question haven't any real relation to their mythological counterparts - the bastard son of a village woman.

Tarsem Singh is truly a genius when it comes to artistic movie-making, as done before in his film "The Fall," which was one of the best dramas i have ever seen. Mickey Rourke was just incredible as the evil and merciless Hyperion, who just about brutally murdered everyone in his way. Henry Cavill was convincing as Theseus but could have done a bit better. Luke Evans was great as a younger-looking Zeus, and Freida Pinto was just beautiful eye candy as Phaedra, one of Hyperion's virgin oracles. As this film is impossible to not be compared to 300, i have to say, i think this one wins the war; 300 was a very incredible ACTION movie, but not as a whole complete film. It gave us a tiny bit of story in the beginning, little character development, and all action throughout the second and third acts of the film. Immortals on the other hand, mixed the action with story, carefully pacing the awesome visuals and fighting with dialogue and confrontations between characters. The visuals, by the way, were top-notch and i have no idea why it didn't make it onto the list for Best Visual Effects for the Oscars. I have to say though, it was mainly disappointing because of its short run time, but if they release a sequel, i am fully on-board for it, as a sequel is needed to complete this large and expanding story that preserves the classic "Gods needing a mortal hero" story line.

4.5/5 Stars***

Immortals is not your average sit back and enjoy popcorn flick. It wasn't like GLADIATOR or TROY. The movie was good but it was a little deep at times. It was a fantasy-action-adventure film that was based on a mythological story of Theseus. Theseus played by Henry Cavill is a mortal who is trained by an old man(who is really Zeus taking on the form of an old man) to be a warrior. His destiny is to find the Epirus Bow a weapon of immense power. Before the dawn of time the IMMORTALS and the TITANS(immortal beasts) fought in Heaven. The IMMORTALS won and called themselves gods and imprisoned the TITANS. Only the Epirus Bow can unleash them.
Mickey Rourke plays King Hyperion a mortal who wants the Epirus Bow so he can unleash the Titans upon the earth. The oracle priestess played by Freida Pinto for sees all of this and joins Theseus on his quest to find the Epirus Bow before King Hyperion. This movie did not follow the original mythology because Theseus had seven quests he had to fulfill then he became King of Athens. So if a teacher is thinking of showing this to a class it did not follow the mythology. Zeus gave Theseus a sword and Athena gave Theseus a pair of golden sandals. Well that does not happen. In the film Theseus fights the Minotaur which is just a guy wearing a helmet in the shape of a bull. Theseus finds the bow and defeats the bull. This movie was in no way as good as GLADIATOR. It may not even be some people's cup of tea. The shots in the movie were dark and it was hard to watch at times. The filming either took place in a cave or in a tunnel or in the Minotaur's lair for instance. I did like the movie but I didn't love it. You have to know some mythology to understand what is going on in the film.
