not a bad movie.
i have a problem with greek gods. they don't interfere. and it's like......you can if you want......an evil guy is trying to destroy the world.....buy using titans....titans want to destroy you gods.....so.....you gonna help...?
pretty average.. watch it if you like these sort of movies.. costumes, medieval. warrior fighting with sword & shield. etc etc.... oh and an Indian girl pretending to be Greek... ahem. Frieda was amazing in Slumdog, but here, she is just not in the right role.
Very GOOd MOVIE... SHould BE Longer!!!
We enjoyed this movie,not as we expected but a watchable movie.
I keep falling asleep watching this. There's a plot that I cant get to grips with, and a wall of special effects of fighting, battles and CGI monsters. I might try watching it again, but there wasnt anything that engaged me enough to see me through to the ending credits. - One star - purely for the shut-eye time I was given . 37% rating on the Rotten Tomatoes website!
One of the worst movies ever made, I actually turned it off before the end because I couldn't take it any longer. If you like badly choreographed and poorly illuminated action fights, horrible acting and a particularly bland story line, you might just enjoy this.
A bit slow to start but got better, not great, just better 2 1/2 stars
Possibly the worst film I have ever seen with bad CGI, script and acting. One star is too much.
Good movie, just a little bit weird.
It is interesting to see the variety of opinions. I thought it was quite good, not terrific, but still very watchable
Couple of hours of my life I"ll never get back. FAR from the movie 300.
Loved this movie very cool
alright if you have nothing better to watch
Do yourself a favour and avoid this movie
This movie looks like it's B grade from start to finish, but there are some pretty fight scenes and the action choreography is actually quite good. It's an okay watch but far from the standard of '300'.
Not worth watching - pretty bad actually
Terrible! I really enjoy Greek Mythology but this was a horrible movie. Basically it was just an excuse to get in as much gore as possible into an hour forty. By half way through this movie I had it muted and was just skimming through the subtitles while I surfed the net. Trust me when there is no music or sound effects to distract you, you really start to notice just how bad the CGI actually was. Unless you enjoy watching very bad effects of bodies exploding on impact or being cut in half, don't bother getting this one out.
Now I know what to expect, I won't be bothering to see 300, which is a shame cause I've read the story and like the old movie version.
Greek Mythology...need I say more? The creators of "the elite", the chosen ones, the superior race were once "pagan" worshipping soldiers- trained from birth to fight for their thrones. Homer first wrote the fabulous stories of the gods, semi-gods and mortals that fought for power over the world, in a book called The Odyssey, even though Homer was illiterate and the stories he wrote about were campfire word-of-mouth fables handed down through the aeons! Clash of the Greek Mythology...need I say more? The creators of "the elite", the chosen ones, and the superior race were once "pagan" worshipping soldiers- trained from birth to fight for their thrones. Homer first wrote the fabulous stories of the gods, semi-gods and mortals that fought for power over the world, in a book called The Odyssey, even though Homer was illiterate and the stories he wrote about were campfire word-of-mouth fables handed down through the aeons! Clash of the Titans was Hollywood's interpretation of the myths, and Immortals is a more Greek viewpoint of what those stories meant. Adding a Genghis Khan quality to King Hyperion was either a stroke of genius or a racial slur, either way, Mickey Rourke's bad guys never fail to impress. Although in this the gods lack a certain celebrity appeal (e.g.: Liam Neeson), their god-like powers are better illustrated and their bloody deaths more visible than the people's lack of faith.
Out of 5 I gave it three stars- one lost for the stretched out storyline (more action than exposition), and the other for the OTT cheesy dialogue and lingering man shots.
I didn't know what to expect with this one I enjoyed it, but if your looking for a flick with a bit of a story line this isn't it but it's big on action, one for the boys.
An ok movie....not as good as i expected, excellent scenery with an average predictable swords and sandals storyline. Mickey Rourke as the bad guy.....excellent.
The Movie wanted to go somewhere, but did not quite get there
Not even worth ONE star.
The composition was disjointed. It suffers from a lack of cohesion not dissimilar to the composition of the Jason momoa Conan movie.
A viewer can gapfill time dissonance, bare character motives or non-existance plot bases' but an intelligent person will reach a point of consternation at all of them all at once.
this way of movie making is becoming more pervasive, but only the superior movie makers actually understand what they have done. If the move maker is just tagging along on a trend, then dont expect the audience to acclaim the title.
For the boys: lots of very-cool slow-motion fight scenes. For the girls: super-hot warriors with no shirts on!
Both me and my partner enjoyed the movie and watched it twice!
To date I have seen all the Tarsem Singh movies and have yet to be able to say that any of them are excellent, always exceptional to look at but still fall short of being spectacular. This director will one day blow us away , but not just yet.
Awesome fight scenes, quite bloody but was to be expected. Over all I enjoyed it
Good movie well made. Just not our type of movie, so we didn't enjoy it.
Great action flick - not sure I liked the ending, though.
There are a couple of ways of looking at this movie, firstly as an action movie and purely as an action movie it is good not great but good. Secondly it is a retelling of myth for modern audience. But here I feel it really flops it has very little to do with the myth if he did not kill a man wearing a bull helmet (the Minotaur) they could have given him another name and we would have been none the wiser. Or we can see this as a movie which retells the myth for a message to today. But it is hard to see what that message is. Zeus is a loving deistic God (a contradiction in terms) who will kill other gods when they want to intervene to help humanity. Theseus as a hero doesn’t do very much which is heroic, compared to the Theseus of legend his acts are very tame. In the end you are left wondering what positive message can be given for butchering a classic story.
This latest Greek saga has the drama of TROY, the mythology of CLASH OF THE TITANS and the gruesome action of 300. But even with elements of all three it still wasn't as good as them. Henry Cavill is still a relative unknown this side of next year's appearance as Superman. John Hurt in the cast adds credibility but otherwise it's badly in need of star-power. And no, Mickey Rourke doesn't count! Not a bad movie but I won't be rushing out to buy a copy for my DVD library.
I looked forward to watching this movie- BAD!
Very long, very slow and very boring!
Maybe its my eyes, but the colours were very dark or just all yellowy...very difficult to see whom was whom anyway, I fell asleep cause couldn't watch it properly due to the colour scheme. When it was daylight some of those scenes were fine, but in the caves or night...Bad filming I felt...
Wasn't too bad, however not a movie I'd rave about. Very gorry, which I don't think is necessary.
They did rent this for 5.99 Dollars but, why not renting WRATH of the TITANS' too? It seems like the Immortals it's the first part of the WRATH of the TITANS.
Somewhere between 300 and Clash of the titans, it's not as good as the former but a bit better than the latter.
One of the better movies so far this year,
Bad script, good graphics, marginal acting - Ms. Punto's rear almost makes up for it.
The story is very slow, and does not flow well. You do not get a sense of time - cut scenes are all over the place. The wander from place to place, without any exhaustion - no loss of time, etc. Very Very bad..
they ride on the fact that it was from the 300 producers - that makes it worse. The speech and the shield clapping was pathetic to say the least.
Fight scenes are OK, however gods and titans battle is just plain pointless. Do rent and see for your self - not recommended though!
This is a way different take on a part of Greek mythology. I roughly thought that this movie tries to be 'realistic', which is a shame because one would expect battles against archaic creatures and a larger-than-life adventure so commonly portrayed in this genre. Disappointingly, this flick failed to celebrate one of Greek's founder-heroes (or maybe it wasn't meant to) as the likes of Hercules or Perseus (but then again its not a historical documentary). As for being entertainment, it just plainly fails. Waste of talent in Mickey Rourke, Stephen Dorff and Ms Pinto. One thiings for sure, these actors wouldn't want to be Immortalised with this pic. Blah!Blah!Blah!
I think I had unrealistic high hopes of this movie. The story is great but it was pretty poorly written. There were good elements and it was mildly enjoyable, but if Henry Cavill hadn't been flashing his torso every few minutes I would most likely have lost interest before the end. Shame has a good cast and looks pretty. Think it was the writers that let the whole thing down!
What a huge disappointment. Fake looking sets, wooden acting and a dull screenplay make this "300" clone a waste of time. If Mr Cavill doesn't pick up his game for "Superman", we could be in trouble...
my kind of movie............. a bit 300 spartans...ish/cross clash of the titans (vaguely)
This movie is a bad, slow movie & it never picks up. Story line is weak & plot is even weaker. Just plain boring. Even the good graffics don't save this boring movie. I wish I had read Josh's review before I put this pill on my queue'
Saw this at the cinema courtesy of Quickflix - thanks for the free tix! Really enjoyed it - the landscaping shots were great & the fight scenes & choreography are awesome - particularly when the gods get stuck in! The camera pans across the fight, following a particular character, such as when Theseus is fighting in the corridor into Tartarus. The weird lighting & speed up/slow down fight scenes reminded me of 300, so if you liked that, or are into Greek myth, then you'll like this too.
I had the misfortune of seeing this one in theaters. I like to see people use their subscriptions wisely and I'd advise anyone reading not to rent this. It's just bland writing and showing off how many ways a person can be cut in half. A very bad movie, rent something else.
