Immortals: Movie Review

[Rating: 2]

Cast: Henry Cavill, Mickey Rourke, John Hurt, Freida Pinto, Stephen Dorff

Director: Tarsem Singh

Synopsis: An epic tale of treachery and vengeance as a power-mad king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon and a heroic young villager rises up against him.

Review: Director Tarsem Singh is known for the visually appealing cinema (The Cell, The Fall) he creates. True to his style, ‘Immortals’ too is a great looking film. Unfortunately that’s all it is, just a very stylishly made film. Not particularly well written, it becomes difficult to feel anything for the characters. And in a period drama, that’s a big letdown.

Immortals follows Theseus (Henry Cavill), who has set to stop Hyperion’s (Rourke)  desire to ravage the world in his mad quest to find and wield the mythical Epirus Bow. Hyperion wants the bow to release the deathly Titans from their prison of Mount Tartarus. The Titans are gods, who have the power to slay other Gods. One epic battle had already ensued which resulted in the Titans being imprisoned. Theseus then embarks upon a vengeful quest with Phaedra (Pinto), a virgin oracle and Stavros (Dorff) a funny yet useful thief.

Mickey Rourke is the only enjoyable performance in ‘Immortals’. The rest although decent aren’t anything that will sweep you away. For lovers of gore, there is a considerable amount of blood splatter and well shot battle scenes. But the major issue with immortals is that the storyline is so complicated, it’s difficult to understand. Most of the time you wouldn’t be aware of what’s going on, and for the most part you wouldn’t take the effort to try and understand either. Characters are introduce and thrown away with equal ease. So, apart from the lack of character development and ho-hum performances, ‘Immortals’ seems to be a spectacular film visually.

Verdict: Breathtaking visuals and Mickey Rourke make it worth a watch.
