Machismo-Laden Attitude and Bloody Violence Make Up
Greek mythology has often been the product of numerous film interpretations. Why? The stories of heroism, of gods and men have always held a certain charm for mainstream audiences. Movies such as the original “Clash of the Titans” (which also spawned an action focused remake), and “Troy” have resulted with a good box-office take. Now, the producers of “300” and director Tarsem Singh takes on the Greek myth of Theseus, the Minotaur and of King Hyperion in …

*1/2 out of ****    One of the first scenes in "Immortals" reveals the power hungry king Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) as he begins his epic quest for vengeance. We are told that he is searching for a legendary weapon known as the Epirus Bow, which was used by the immortals (the beings that came before man) during wartime, lost for all these years. It would seem that, in this particular scene, the king has located it; and intends to use the bow to release the so-called "titans" so …

Swords and sandals, blood and guts all in 3D - The Immortals is a fun escape
I love those old movies about the Greek Gods and Goddesses. Ray Harryhausen was the master back when I was a kid. The remake of his classic Clash of the Titans was a bit of a disappointment to me. So I went to see the Immortals with a little bit of reluctance. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this film a lot of fun. The special effects are excellent and in my opinion the 3D effects were used very well, which is not always the case. Of course the old movies from the 50's and 60's were …

Star Rating:         Immortals is visually extravagant – a triumph of special effects, costume design, and art direction. This is to be expected from Tarsem, who belongs on the same shelf as Tim Burton as one of the most unique visually inclined directors alive. While not the film’s greatest achievement, he should be commended for shooting it in 3D and successfully translating the process into a theater format. For the first time in what seems like ages, …
Quick Tip by . November 12, 2011
Caption
Visually arresting, and has more violent action scenes than one may expect. "Immortals" is extremely nice to behold and I would be stupid to deny its entertainment value. The plot and the characters may be a little uninspired, as the film focuses more on the grittiness and raw narrative 'bang' filled with machismo, and attitude. The set designs and violence are a treat to look at, and may be for its intended viewer. One needs to forget their actual interpretations of the Greek …
