The melding of real sets, CG work, and Tarsem's signature style produces fireworks, though the same can't be said for Immortals slack, boring storytelling.

Without any narrative heft, these sights don't last in the mind much longer than they linger on screen. And yet they thrill in short-lived bursts that Singh doles out carefully, keeping pace with the audience's appetite.

The same hyperstylized, comic book-come-to-life approach that created an invigorating experience for viewers of 300 elevates Immortals above the level of a Clash of the Titans knock-off.

The posters read "From the Producers of 300" and, like Zack Snyder's film, Immortals has little on its mind but conveying the buzz of martial glory.

Tarsem Singh's imaginative visuals are the main draw of Immortals - which is subsequently held together by a mostly adequate story of gods, titans, and humanity.

You can't take your eyes off it - it's like watching the butchest float on the Gay Pride parade crash in super slow-motion HD.

Looks aren't everything, but you'd never guess that by watching Immortals. With a solid cast and breathtaking fight scenes, you almost forget that there's not much of a story.

"Immortals" is indeed good-looking and is even entertaining for a few brief sequences, but that's not nearly enough to begin making up for its multiple flaws elsewhere.

...a distressingly cynical cash-grab that seems to exist only to profit from the success of its like-minded predecessors.

Beyond the simple idea that Gods intervened in humans' lives on a regular basis, there isn't a lot of interesting stuff to chew on in the script. It moves from one amazingly framed camera setup to the next with no forward motion or feeling of consequence.

Fans of mythic adventure may want to see for themselves, but the storytelling is too disjointed for it to measure up to a film like "300" or "Troy."

Costume designer Eiko Ishioka drapes the gods in dinky gold lamé outfits and outlandish headgear - Daniel Sharman's Aires sports a helmet spiked with swords and Kellan Lutz's Poseidon appears to be wearing a rather whimsical fascinator.

Weakly plotted and emotionally flat, but visually alluring, memorable and sometimes very entertaining.

It seems as if there's no way at all to make these kinds of gladiator/barbarian/centurion battle movies any good.

The raw movie majesty alone makes this worth a view on the big screen, but as an adventure epic, it also works well enough.

January 11, 2012 Full Review Source:

A hodge-podge of nonsense that is just really there to stitch together cool fight scenes and sets.

December 7, 2011 Full Review Source:

Laws mean little to these immortals once "considered incapable of death," at least until they "discover they can kill each other." Likewise, they discover they can't not interfere with men.

If you like blood and guts, with hand-to-hand (or should I say hand-to-spear) combat in video-game-style, you may like this more than I did.

The most unpretentious -- or should that be ridiculous? -- film yet from style-drunk director Tarsem Singh is also his most enjoyable, a Cuisinart-blended shot of Greek mythology and ultraviolent effects that chokes the viewer with unrelenting design.

There's a story of revenge here, along with some nods to the classic myths of Greek gods and goddesses, as well as a pretty spiffy concept for the Minotaur. Mostly, though, this is a bloodbath.

Singh approaches the material the way Werner Herzog might approach a film adaptation of "Gossip Girl": He doesn't get it, but that won't stop him from doing his thing.

Audience Reviews for Immortals

Visually stunning, but not the best storytelling.
May 14, 2013

Super Reviewer

"Immortals was OK. I enjoyed the action and the blood and gore. But the story was lacking for me. It is visually nice and there are a lot of great action scenes. But I was a little bored. I just didn't care about what happened. The acting was OK. I really like Luke Evans. I wanted to see more of him. I liked John Hurt in this as well. It didn't impress me. The film is worth seeing at least once."

A decent sword & sandals film. Generally more like 300 than Clash of the Titans thankfully. From the same producers I believe as 300 and it has a very similar CGI visual style to it. A nice twist to some of the Greek mythology in the story. The fight scenes are well choreographed and the SFX are very good. Add to that Mickey Rourke giving a good performance as the chief villain and you have a very good film.

My type of movie! BUT, I watched this movie with jaded eyes, expecting it to be more hype than substance. I was pleasantly surprised. To my amusement, I found myself gripping the arms of my chair more than once in the epic battle scenes. The special effects were solid, the dialogue better than average, and well acted by newer and veteran actors alike. Very well done, compelling storyline, marvelous combat moves, not overly gory...good movie!

    1. Old Man: [voice over] When this world was still young, long before man or beast roamed these lands, there was a war in the heavens. Immortals, once thoughts incapable of death, discovered they had the power to kill one another. Lost in this war was a weapon of unimaginable power, the Epirus bow. The victors declared themselves Gods, while the vanquished were renamed Titans and forever imprisoned within the bowels of Mount Tartarus. Eons passed, mankind flourished and the great war receded from memory. But the evil that once was has reemerged.
