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.

"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.

an almost overwhelming aesthetic experience in which conventional storytelling and narrative logic frequently take a backseat to pure sensation

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.

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

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.
