IMMORTALS Movie Review By: Rama

IMMORTALS Movie Review
By: Rama

So what did Rama think of IMMORTALS? Can it hang with 300? Make to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

If you’re big into Greek Mythology, you might wanna leave that knowledge in the car before you enter the theaters to go watch this movie because IMMORTALS is Greek mythology injected with 300 poison.
I’m not gonna lie to you, the film is stylized and the last 15 minutes are quite entertaining but it lacks the odd creativity that I admire about director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall)…

The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey 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 (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion’s raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline 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.

Immortals Press Junket Henry Cavill & Tarsem Singh. And Yes I Ask Him About Superman-

The visual, the CG is quite overwhelming, it practically shoves itself down your throat, not to mention the 3D FX. So if you’ve come for those elements, you will get what you pay for. But as I said earlier, it’s a shame that it’s not truly a Tarsem Singh presentation. I’m a big fan of The Cell and The Fall because it pushes our imagination to the limit, the visual on those movies are character driven and it’s so unique and full of surprises, you just never know what it might morph into. Whereas IMMORTALS is just a six pack abs – bullet time extravaganza.

I think Mickey Rourke does a fantastic job as the villain, King Hyperion. You can barely understand half of what Rourke says though because he mumbles through some of his sentences, but there’s not a sign of mercy on his face and his mannerism. His character kinda tells you a bit about his motivation, how the gods didn’t come for his wife’s rescue but he never really deals deeply into that, what you get is a man who has no problem killing anybody who pisses him off. His presence causes everyone to tremble and I think Rourke pulls that off quite nicely.
I can’t give the same compliment to the lead hero, Henry Cavill and the female lead, Freido Pinto, however.

I watch this movie to see about this new Superman, Henry Cavill, and I must admit, he does have the physique and the looks, no doubt about that but unfortunately he doesn’t exude charisma and perhaps the fault is at his character Theseus who I find to be too idealistic and weak, much like Worthington’s character in Clash Of The Titans.
I wouldn’t go into war with Theseus no matter how fiery his speeches are.
Pinto, as strikingly beautiful as she is, has one huge flaw and that is she can’t make you believe anything that she feels emotionally.

It doesn’t take a genius to follow the story either, which by the way has a significant amount of inconsistencies. Without spoiling too much, I think the story has trouble finding a clever way to have Hyperion get his hands on Epirus Bow, and the result is a very incompetent Hyperion, because he doesn’t know how many oracle virgins are there and doesn’t thoroughly search the villages he destroys.

I find it interesting that the gods rarely interfere with man’s business, there’s that constant theme of having faith in humanity so that humanity may have faith in the gods. But the costume and the helmets they wear look too ridiculous for me to take them seriously, how can I not laugh at the film’s making the titans run around rapidly like a bunch of cockroaches, the gods’ fighting style which seems to move faster than everyone else’s, on top of the fact that the gods look like supermodels, once again goes to how that this film is nothing but an abuse of CG and a sick pack abs – bullet time extravaganza.

IMMORTALS is basically the producers 300 not allowing Tarsem Singh be Tarsem Singh

GRADE: 2 out of 5

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
