Synopsis


Immortals
A brave young stonemason assembles a fierce band of warriors to prevent an evil king from acquiring the artifact that will permit him to rule the world in this epic mythological fantasy from visionary filmmaker Tarsem Singh. King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) is a brutal tyrant on a bloody mission to seek out the mythical Bow of Epirus. Should he succeed, even the gods of Olympus will be forced to bow before him. In his efforts to locate the invincible and elusive weapon, Hyperion leads his Heraklion army on a brutal rampage across Greece, razing every town in their path, and killing with impunity. When the Hyperions lay waste to his village and cut down his mother in cold blood, vengeful stonemason Theseus (Henry Cavill) emerges from the rubble determined to make the king pay for his crimes. Later, the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), experiences a vision of Theseus' future that convinces her he will play a pivotal role in defeating King Hyperion. Armed with that supernatural knowledge, she agrees to help Theseus assemble a small army capable of defeating the tyrannical king and preventing him from enslaving the entire human race. Stephen Dorff, Kellan Lutz, and John Hurt co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Overall, I really liked the movie. I didn't get the chance to watch it in the theater so I was waiting til it came out. Got it day one and watched it that evening. As far as the 3d version goes if you are building your collection, make sure you get it release week. The price is only a few dollars more than the regular blu ray. If you wait after, stick with the regular Blu Ray. Majority of the movie did not appear 3dish. And no I am not referring to pop out. I am very much into 3d and this lacked even depth thru out the movie. A few scenes were good but overall very mediocre. Appeared that it wasn't shot for 3d. I own more than a dozen 3d titles and this one is sub-par on the 3d level. On the positive side, I liked the storyline. I wish there was a bit more with the main weapon of the movie though. Good movie to add to your collection if you liked movies like 300, Troy, and even Gladiator.

    Action Packed Greek Mythology

    This is an excellent action film that is loosely cloaked in Greek myth. While many of the characters are pulled from Greek myth, the overall plot has nothing to do with the actual story of the Greek hero, Theseus. Plot issues aside, Henry Cavill definitely is worthy of playing the classical hero. Cavill provides the look, charisma, and believable intensity of a leading man. This film also provided my first experience of Luke Evans. Evans gives a powerful performance as Zeus, and really commands the screen whenever he appears. Some other highlights of the film include Stephen Dorff, and the action sequences. Dorff provides an excellent sarcastic foil to Cavill. While a majority of the action sequences in this film may not standout, the final sequence involving the Olympian Gods is one of the most amazing fight scenes in recent memory. The battle between Cavill and Mickey Rourke's Hyperion that is interspersed with the godly frenzy is also quite entertaining and brutal. While this film will never be known for its Greek scholarship, this is an entertaining action film that provides an excellent introduction for two actors (Cavill and Evans) that have a bright future ahead of them.

    The visuals in this film are quite breathtaking i saw it twice at the imax in 3D AND NOW I OWN IT ON 3D..blu-ray and dvd... i found it very enjoyable but don't watch a film like this because you want to see an oscar worthy preformance from any of the actors because that's not what a movie like this is about.. so if thats what you are looking for you might want to see ben kingsley in hugo instead. this is a spectacular and violent visual feast with some of the same elements as 300 but slightly less charactor development.....it's not pefect in terms of the acting but it is far from horrible......if you want to see horrible acting see any of the twighlight movie where everyone appears to be fully aware of being filmed at all times and mumbling is required. Want to see a bloodbath similar to 300 but actually looks better at times? then see this at least once... btw not a huge fan of the last sequence of the movie.

    It's 'The Cell' and 'The Fall' meets '300'

    'The Immortals' is a film like no other and is something that should be watched. If you are expecting a film that is just like "300" then do not watch this. If you want to see an artistic, brutal, 'moving-painting movie', then you need to see this. Tarsem Singh is a great director. If you don't know who is, he directed "The Cell","The Fall", and recently "Mirror, Mirror". If you don't like the production design or feel of these films, it will be hard to watch "The Immortals". Tarsem has a strong artistic style that is hard to describe unless you see his work.

    I am a big fan of "Clash of the Titans" and "300" which is why I purchased this movie ... and I was not disappointed. Beautifully photographed, well acted, good storyline, amazing costumes, fantastic sets, effects used to perfection ... not much more to ask of any movie. The somewhat "dark & brooding" nature of the film only added to the charm for me. And though a staple performance from Mickey Rourke, plus an amazing job done by Henry Cavill, it was so great for me to finally see Stephen Dorff in a role that matched this amazing actors talents ... he steals every scene in which he appears because of his amazing acting abilities.

    I liked he movie. It had some dark points that weren't to my taste but I survived :). I'm not Greek but from what I remember and looked up online I didn't understand some of the events that happened toward the end - I guess directors/writers adaptation. You may want to see if a friend has a copy first before getting it yourself. It was slow in places, fast & confusing in others. I had to view several places over and in slow motion. I just wasn't getting it but you might. It will be an "Oh I forgot I had this let me look at it now" movie for me. To each their own I say. Good Luck!

    3D is poor, Movie is OK

    3D effects are almost non-existent. The beginning 3d effect were fair, but the action sequences were nothing! As for the movie the first 15 minutes I thought this was going to be a good movie. But then it went down-hill fast. The main protaganist was captured, let go, captured, let go, captured, let go to the point of monotany. As easy as he was to capture it would have been just as easy to kill him. 45 minutes of doldrums. And the gods seemed out of place, they made no convincing arguement as why they should get involved. The last 15 minutes saved it a little.

    Much better than 300 but not as good as Clash of the Titans. I found this movie to be pretty enjoyable to watch. It features some pretty outstanding visuals and the plot is satisfying despite the typical -lowly peasant falls in love with an insanely hot chick and saves the world- cliche. The 3D aspect in this movie could have put it over the top considering the visuals it presents. Unfortunately, I didn't notice any spectacular 3D moments, so I have to chalk this one up as just another average 3D experience. Film Experience: 4 of 5 3D Experience: 3 of 5
