I went to see the Immortals today and I was very excited. While Jaime and Giavonni have been waiting for games to come out today, I was just waiting for this movie.
This review does not contain any spoilers.
Looking at the previews this movie had everything I could ever want, hot men, great visuals, and mythology. Yes I love those all. I went to Flixster before I even bought my tickets to read the critic and audience reviews. Let me first say there has only ever been one movie that I completely agreed with the critics on and this wasn’t it.
The locations looked perfectly barren and dramatic all at the same time. Sparse, gray, straight lines, high cliffs and absolutely perfect. This movie made do with a lot of partial buildings but it worked. The contrast of the majority of the human colors and the gold of the gods was visually delicious. I’m also a big action chick so these fight scenes reminiscent of 300 were amazing. The breathtaking splendor and beauty of the gods was such a treat to watch. Luckily for everyone there is so much eye candy in this movie that there’s no disappointment in that area. The story line, while not Academy Award worthy is enough to carry you through the movie. Looking at this movie you can see the influences of the Cell and 300 in almost every scene. I read a review that said “this is without a doubt the best looking worse movie you’ll see.” I wholeheartedly disagree, it’s not the best movie I’ve seen but I definitely liked it.
