Plot Outline:

Years after the gods defeated the titans and sealed them away, King Hyperion, mad with power, unleashed his disfigured army upon Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow - a weapon forged by Ares himself. With this weapon he plans to free the titans. The gods, unable to step in directly, instead put the burden of saving mankind upon a peasant named Theseus, who is charged by Zeus to stop the mad king. -- Chris Kavan

In my opinion a better story and a better movie than 300. Sweet battle scenes.

Theseus (Henry Cavill) is a mortal chosen by Zeus to fight evil. Zeus (Luke Evans), meets with his fellow Gods Athena (Isabel Lucas), Poseidon (Kellan Lutz), Ares (Daniel Sharman), Apollo (Corey Sevier), and Heracles (Steve Byers) to inform them not to interfere with human activities. Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) is in search for a powerful bow. The overloaded characters and screenplay made the story difficult to comprehend and at times dull. On the positive aspect, the special effects, cinematography, score, sincere performances and action sequences were riveting. Immortals is a descent action fantasy much similar to 300 and Clash of the Titans, whose flaws fall under the storytelling compartment and better character development.

What just happened?

With the titans locked on their cell, greedy King Hyperion wanted to free them. Gods appointed peasant Theseus to save mankind. He was given legendary Epirus Bow to go up against the King and avenge his mother.

***

Honestly speaking, I didn't like this movie, not that I hate it, it's just that few things are well appreciated. While watching this with a friend, we can't focus because of its dull appearance. Why it has always to be at the edge of mountains? The palaces seemed to be so small? Weird costumes. Awkward shots of the Gods. I thought Greece and its lands should look like a paradise, a place where people can comfortably think, philosophize. Obviously, it turned out to be a distracting set trying hard to look like a battlefield with so much drama on it.

I don't have any pro...

Don't Trust The Negative Reviews

I think I saw a different movie than what most people saw. If you liked 300, you should love this movie. If you like action, you should like this movie. I must preface that I don't know anything about mythology, but I wish I did. This movie may not be accurate, but I don't care.

The story: similar to 300, Troy, and to a certain extent, this movie is about the old days. The difference between Immortals and the others is that this one introduces The Gods, which makes it that much better. They are more powerful than humans and have excessive skill. Very cool, yet thin, characters. The story is not ground breaking, but I don't know of a movie that finally includes true Gods and Warriors like this.

The Cinematography/Style: As you would expect with Sing helming the project, the style is ...

Gods and General Chaos

While marketing would suggest that Immortals is the next 300 - and while the style and even the plot somewhat mirror that spectacle, Immortals is more of a shadow to that film than a successor.

Comparisons: A small group of warriors going up against a huge force commanded by a monster. A traitor who betrays his own army and provides damning intel for the enemy. Plenty of slo-mo violence involving various weapons - including one attack scene that looked like it could have straight out of God of War.

The story revolves around an army led by King Hyperion - a man who enjoys torture, murder and being merciless, as played by Mickey Rourke. He probably kills kittens in his spare time when not roasting women alive or having men's testicles smashed in by large hammers. Rourke snarls his way...
