Immortals (2011)


Immortals is a film loosely based on the Greek myths of Theseus, Minotaur and the War of the Titans. The film stars Mikey Rourke as King Hyperion goes to war and searches for the Epirus Bow, a weapon that will free the Titans and have them take revenge against the gods. It’s all up to Theseus played by Henry Cavill, who will be playing the new Superman in the movie Man of Steel. Theseus is chosen by Zeus and while accompanied by an oracle (Frieda Pinto) and some other sidekicks, he must rally the people and take down Hyperion. I never saw 300 so when the poster and trailers for this movie say 2 of the producers from that movie produced this movie all that makes me think is hard abs that can only be seen on the cover of Men’s Health magazine and that’s exactly what this movie is. I love Greek Mythology. Love the stories and all the myths. I’ve read The Iliad and The Odyssey too many times. I wasn’t expecting much from this movie. In fact I thought it was going to be terrible. Turned out it wasn’t. The plot was so lacking, there is no suspense, no real storytelling going on and the acting was sub par at best but the visual was great. It kept you mesmerized long enough where you forgot that all those other terrible things were happening and just when you started to remember they brought in the visuals again. The action was great. I was enthralled the entire time. This movie isn’t a masterpiece by any means necessary but it was entertaining and I enjoyed myself plus there was lots of eye candy 😉
