#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders – including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff) – one hero will lead the uprising, or watch his homeland fall into ruin and his Gods vanish into legend.
Plot: Theseus is a mortal man chosen by Zeus to lead the fight against the ruthless King Hyperion, who is on a rampage across Greece to obtain a weapon that can destroy humanity.

Everyone talks about how _Immortals_ is a _300_ ripoff, and don’t get me wrong, it absolutely is, but I haven’t yet seen anyone talk about how it’s also a bit of a _God of War_ ripoff.
I’m actually quite fond of historically-set mythology films, but I don’t believe the problem with _Immortals_ isn’t the setting or the genre, it’s the motivation behind its being made the way it was. The _300_ movie exists to be an adaptation of the _300_ comic book, the _Immortals_ movie exists because the _300_ movie made money. (Don’t get me wrong, I know that the real motivation behind both these, and of any other studio film, is money. But someone involved somewhere has to want more from their movie than that. And _Immortals_ doesn’t give me the vibe that anyone did).
I can handle _Immortals_ doing what _300_ does. Hell, if enough people rip an idea off over a long enough period of time, in movies, we call that a genre. My issue is that it **only** exists to do what _300_ did, yet it does **all** of it so much worse. There are maybe two fights in _Immortals_ that last for longer than 30 seconds, even with all that slow-mo stretching the runtime, and neither are filmed as well as the ones in _300_. It’s nowhere near as fun, it’s not superior in any technical category, it’s harder to tell what the fuck is going on. Even the acting, which is NOT _300’s_ strong suit, is worse here than it is there. There were maybe flashes where you could glimpse a cohesive idea that desired to form, but it never even got close.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
Total failure of doing a movie with the aesthetics and success of “300”.
Mediocre story, bad planned action scenes, tons of Fx, poorly developed characters and tons of stereotypes.
300 meets Clash of the Titans
I went into this movie expecting it to resemble another 300, or another Clash of the Titans, and while it was a mix of the two, Immortals far exceeded my expectations. Mickey Rourke was, as usual, an amazing villain, playing the role so well that I never thought back to different roles he’s played in the past to compare them, because there is no comparison. Henry Cavill played Theseus like a boss, and was the perfect actor for this movie. Don’t make the mistake of comparing this movie to other Greek Mythology flicks, because Immortals is in a category of its own. Go check it out when it debuts nationally, you will not be disappointed!
Immortals is like you’re dating the hottest person on the planet, but it turns out they’re dumb as a box of rocks
If you’re going to mess up Greek mythology, I guess you might as well make it pretty. Immortals is a semi-related-sequel to the incredible film 300, which not only looked beautiful but had this incredible story of triumph and strength, overcoming powerful numbers with a sense of knowing who you are and the pride you have. Immortals was created by director Tarsem Singh who also directed The Cell, which was an alright story followed up by some great visuals, the same thing happens here. I think Tarsem is just known for making a beautiful movie with a weak story, he’s more of a visualist rather than a story teller. I still couldn’t wait to see Immortals and sadly was very disappointed, unfortunately this was just a weak story with some bizarre miscasts.
King Hyperion has declared war on humanity. He searches for the Epirus Bow, a legendary weapon created by the war god Ares, which will allow him to free the rest of the Titans from Tartarus and take revenge on the Olympians who brought about their downfall. In accordance with ancient laws, the gods are unable to take a side in the war between Hyperion and humanity. It is left to Theseus, who was chosen by Zeus and accompanied by the priestess Phaedra and a thief named Stavros, to protect his homeland and save the gods.
To begin with the positives, like I said the visuals really are incredible. Now the CGI is over the top, but sometimes I don’t mind, we need the pretty occasionally. Plus like I said if you are going to mess up mythology at least we could make it beautiful to look at. When I go to a museum and look at the Greek statues, I am in awe and that’s what I felt with some of the visuals in the film. The fight scenes were so well choreographed, a little ripped off from 300, but that’s alright. They took the 3D to their advantage with the blood splatter and the stabbings and honestly, it was fun to watch. And if not for the script, the story was actually very good, it’s something that just needed some work.
The cast though: Henry Cavill as our hero, Theseus, I don’t know if it was the actor or the way he was written but I couldn’t really root for his character. He seemed to lack the charisma that made me believe that not only is this man a hero but that he’s a God. He has this scene where he is giving the big speech to his army that is freaking out when they see the numbers they are about to face in war and he says something along the lines “I bleed like you bleed” and randomly they’re just like “Yeah!”, that’s it? It didn’t take much encouragement and the way that Henry delivered it was weak in my opinion. Freida Pinto, beautiful lady, decent actress, however was an unneeded character and had no chemistry with Henry. Stephen Dorff did an alright job as the sidekick who often lends a joke when needed but makes for a good fighter and has some good action scenes. Mickey Rourke really does try very hard to be the bad God like King Hyperion, but again the threat wasn’t so much there. He mumbles so many lines and won’t stop eating when on the screen, why not just give him a cat to stroke while talking about his plan? The ending fight scene between Hyperion and Theseus was so anti-climatic to me. The mighty legendary incredible God Zeus played by Luke Evans? Oh, my*slaps head and groans*, I don’t think I need to say more, that was just wrong.
I think that if the story besides some casting issues, maybe if the film was trimmed down a bit, the film would have worked a lot better. Despite being over the top, I like the Greek mythology as a soap opera of some sorts, that’s what it was like while writing and telling these stories. The film has a lot of flaws, however, I would recommend seeing in the theater if anything, go see the matinée. The visuals are absolutely beautiful and the fight scenes are a lot of fun. But don’t expect the story to be there, this movie is not a rental, even as a blu ray, I’d recommend just seeing it in the theater if you want to see some great special effects. But Tarsem does need to work on his stories, I know he has some major potential, 300 was pretty and had a great story to boot, if there’s a sequel, you have one more chance to make this story into a classic that we can proudly display with Jason and the Argonauts.
