Meh! I am totally uninterested Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals . Ancient blood lust. Shiny costumes. Bunch of random characters spewing over-dramatic dialogue. Sepia-toned color scheme…nothing feels the least bit authentic. It’s style over substance, and screams 300 just too much. *sighs* I would love if movies based off of Greek mythology actually followed the mythology instead of making things up.
Anyway, if you’re a fan of Tarsem’s visual style and over the top production and melodrama doesn’t bother you… then, I guess, you’ll enjoy this new TV spot for Immortals.
Nope. I’m still not a fan of anything that’s going on here. What say you?
In the film, the brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission.
As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion’s raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (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.
