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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

Although it's exceptionally silly and takes itself way too seriously, the movie will give lovers of expertly faked beefcake action their sword-and-sandal fix.

With Immortals, Tarsem has created a beautiful and sumptuous mythological epic with visual strengths that far outweigh the weaknesses of its fairly standard script.

Just enough spectacle to make up for the lack of substance.

It's encouraging to see a studio movie based on Greek legend that at least looks as if they have done some of the reading and visited a few exhibitions.

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.

Immortals looks gorgeous. The CGI is rendered with imaginative care and a real sense of wonder and danger in underscoring the action. It is the real star

The fact is that Immortals would be better if it were a silent movie.

By combining gorgeous art direction and lighting generally reserved for Renaissance oil paintings, director Tarsem Singh goes all in on the movie's visuals while ignoring virtually everything else.

as old-school epic entertainment dressed up with state-of-the-art effects-including remarkably natural-looking 3D--Immortals rates an easy A.

As mythic spectacles go, it beats Clash Of The Titans, particularly in the areas of intimidating villainy and actual Titan-clashing.

Solid yet hardly sensational, no luxury sedan but a good compact -- fairly efficient in its operation, typically clean in look, and guaranteed to reach its destination with a minimum of fuss.
