Immortals is an Universal Pictures epic film available in 2D and 3D (Real 3D and Digital 3D), this movie from the makers of “300” is set in a world of sword fighting and sorcery in 1228BC, the huge amount of violence makes it unsuitable for children, the action sequences are very well done, shot in slow motion with lots of blood and guts, quite enjoyable if you like detailed fights, the 3D CGI effects are nothing out of the ordinary, brightness is pretty good but colours can get slightly muddy at times, Immortals is post-converted, not filmed in 3D. I would not bother with the extra money, in a way it remembers Clash of the Titans because of the low 3D quality, but it doesn’t take away the great fighting scenes and settings.
The film incorporates classical Greek mythology, playing the dichotomy in between good and evil, it is easy to get a little lost in the plot but also a great way to learn about Greek history.
Immortals doesn’t have excessive originality, like in “300”, you will be delivered an epic history of treachery, vengeance and destiny, starring Golden Globe winner Mickey Rourke and various Academy Award nominees like John Hurt (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Kellan Lutz (Twilight Saga), Luke Evans (Clash of the Titans) and Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire). Produced by Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton(300) and directed by Tarsem Singh (The Fall), runtime is 110 minutes.
Synopsis: A murderous army lead by power hungry King Hyperion is rampaging through Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus, an invincible weapon capable of overthrowing the Gods of Olympus, a young villager with a small bunch of followers raises against the King to win a battle that will decide the future of mankind.
