Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Without any narrative heft, these sights don't last in the mind much longer than they linger on screen. And yet they thrill in short-lived bursts that Singh doles out carefully, keeping pace with the audience's appetite."
‑ Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly
"The posters read "From the Producers of 300" and, like Zack Snyder's film, Immortals has little on its mind but conveying the buzz of martial glory."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"This is an awfully dumb movie that I'll still remember for a while."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"You can't take your eyes off it - it's like watching the butchest float on the Gay Pride parade crash in super slow-motion HD."
‑ Ali Gray,
"...a distressingly cynical cash-grab that seems to exist only to profit from the success of its like-minded predecessors."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"When Hyperion says of one character, "His pain has just begun,'' you know exactly how he feels."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"This monumental tale of warring gods and men is a beautiful, dead thing, bereft of organic or kinetic life."
‑ Kathleen Murphy, MSN Movies
"Grisly, gross, messy - and I'm not just talking about Mickey Rourke's table manners"
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Looks aren't everything, but you'd never guess that by watching Immortals. With a solid cast and breathtaking fight scenes, you almost forget that there's not much of a story."
‑ Billy Tatum, We Got This Covered
"Beyond the simple idea that Gods intervened in humans' lives on a regular basis, there isn't a lot of interesting stuff to chew on in the script. It moves from one amazingly framed camera setup to the next with no forward motion or feeling of consequence."
‑ Eric Melin,
"The same hyperstylized, comic book-come-to-life approach that created an invigorating experience for viewers of 300 elevates Immortals above the level of a Clash of the Titans knock-off."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Singh is a talented and eccentric visual artist with no creative future in the movie business."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Tarsem Singh's imaginative visuals are the main draw of Immortals - which is subsequently held together by a mostly adequate story of gods, titans, and humanity."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
""Immortals" is indeed good-looking and is even entertaining for a few brief sequences, but that's not nearly enough to begin making up for its multiple flaws elsewhere."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"an almost overwhelming aesthetic experience in which conventional storytelling and narrative logic frequently take a backseat to pure sensation"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
