Ileana’s Movie Review: Immortals

Relativity Media

Grade: B
Starring: Henry Cavill, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Mickey Rourke
Summary: The evil King Hyperion (Rourke) is on a quest to find a weapon that will enable him to enslave mankind and destroy the Gods. The only one who can stop him is Theseus (Cavill), a peasant from a small village. Theseus is favored by Zeus (Evans) to lead the fight against Hyperion. Aided by a beautiful oracle (Pinto) and a band of rogue slaves, Theseus sets out to stop King Hyperion in order to save humanity.
I will admit that I had low expectations for this movie. I assumed it was ust a copy of “300” since it was produced by the same team and was advertised as such. But watching “Immortals” is a completely different experience. While “300” is set in a monochromatic tone, “Immortals” serves up some breathtaking visuals. Director Tarsem Singh is an artist in every sense of the word, and while the dialogue and storyline did little for me, the visuals definitely make up for it.
Everything from the costumes to the sets is a visual delight. One word of caution though, this film is very violent, more so than “300”. If you are squeamish at all about blood and gore you may want to skip this one.
Trivia: This is the third film for director Tarsem Singh who is known for his elaborate costume designs. He also directed the controversial yet iconic music video from R.E.M. “Losing My Religion”.
Rated: R – For sequences of strong bloody violence, and a scene of sexuality
