DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Fantasy - This is a very violent action-adventure based on the Greek myth of Theseus. Story takes a back seat to pure visuals. Fans of stars Henry Cavill, Freida Pinto, and Mickey Rourke will have plenty to savor. In addition to violence, sexuality makes the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average "Immortals" is without doubt the best-looking awful movie you will ever see. Eiko Ishioka's costume designs alone deserve an Oscar nomination. Alas, the movie makes next to no sense. Characters would turn up for the first time, seem terrifically important, and disappear. If at many moments I had stopped the film and asked anybody around me, "who is that, and what are they doing and why?," I think they'd have been stuck for an answer.

USA Today Full Review
Average Beautifully shot and way too serious about itself, Immortals is a cut above last year's wretched Clash of the Titans remake but can't quite replicate the visuals of 300 or the sweep of The Lord of the Rings, .... what undercuts sharper than Poseidon's trident is a script that sees its characters as cardboard, not flesh and blood. For a film meant to be spectacle over substance, it's not a fatal blow. But it is a mortal wound.

Washington Post Full Review
Below Average The movie pays less attention to theology, however, than decapitations, castrations, eviscerations and the occasional parboiling alive of people inside a giant metal bull. The blood spurts in 3-D, although the third-dimension effects, added after the shoot, are not as striking as the general spirit of sadism.

NY Post Full Review
Average If it's violence ye seek, and violently confused storytelling, look ye no further. A buffet for the retinas and a fast for the mind... The climax can best be described as a giant meaningless whoosh. Director Tarsem Singh, whose only previous major film was the 2000 Jennifer Lopez fantasy "The Cell,” does not have a brilliant script to work with. And what Singh has got, he garbles.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 100 moviegoers:
TEENS:It's a bit of a shock to see that the males didn't rate this bloody action movie higher. Only about half rated it really high. Close to a third rated it "Good/Average," which is a bit disappointing, especially coming from teen males. Quite a few actually rated it below average, or lower. The females enjoyed it MUCH more than the guys. Their reviews are very high.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great Reviews from both the males and females! Half the males and three-quarters of the females LOVED "IMMORTALS." A few of the males and females only rated it "Good/Average," which is a little disappointing. Very few rated it below average.
ADULTS: These are good, but not great, reviews from the males. The female reviews are very mixed. A third of the males and close to half of the ladies loved "Immortals." Quite a few more males indicated that they enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, close to half the ladies and a third of the guys only rated it as average to below average, or lower.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous army are rampaging across Greece, demolishing everything in their wake with ruthless efficiency. Village after village falls to Hyperion's legions and each victory takes him one step closer to his goal: unleashing the power of the sleeping Titans to vanquish both the Gods of Olympus and all of humankind.

It seems nothing will stop the evil king's mission to become the undisputed master of the world, until a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion's raids. When Theseus meets the Sibylline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man's future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final desperate battle for the future of humanity.
