Consensus: The melding of real sets, CG work, and Tarsem's signature style produces fireworks, though the same can't be said for Immortals slack, boring storytelling.

If you like blood and guts, with hand-to-hand (or should I say hand-to-spear) combat in video-game-style, you may like this more than I did.

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.

The fight scenes look great, and there's nice support from Hurt, Luke Evans (as Zeus), too, but it's ultimately let down by the sniggersome script and thin plot. It's still better than last year's Clash Of The Titans, though.

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.

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.

I wasn't expecting great storytelling because Tarsem isn't a great storyteller, but I did expect more from him visually.

When Hyperion says of one character, "His pain has just begun,'' you know exactly how he feels.

This monumental tale of warring gods and men is a beautiful, dead thing, bereft of organic or kinetic life.

While it clearly strives for the 'epic' label, Immortals falls far short of it.

Visually stunning, but not the best storytelling.

A decent sword & sandals film. Generally more like 300 than Clash of the Titans thankfully. From the same producers I believe as 300 and it has a very… More

Singh is a master of visuals. Here he uses them incredibly well to completely distract you from a rather tired plot. Hyperion, played as a filthy cruel terror… More
