Immortals (2011)



Critic Consensus: 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.

Movie Info

The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king's mission. As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion's raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man's future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final desperate battle for the future of humanity. -- (C) Relativity Mediamore

This is an awfully dumb movie that I'll still remember for a while.

Grisly, gross, messy - and I'm not just talking about Mickey Rourke's table manners

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.

We Got This Covered

"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.

Audience Reviews for Immortals


Visually stunning, but not the best storytelling.

"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."


Super Reviewer


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.
