Yesterday, I went to see the new flick Immortals at the Regal Cinema in Lone Tree, CO that ended up being number one at the box office with 32 million in sales. It’s only $5 to catch a movie at the Regal Cinema on Sunday, so I figured I would go see this film. The Fandango website at Immortals, describes the movie as follows.
“ Power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his ruthless army march across Greece, leaving burned-out villages and the corpses of the innocent in their wake. Hyperion’s goal is to find the long-lost Bow of Epirus; with this invincible weapon, he can cast the gods out of Mount Olympus and become master of the world. A stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) heeds the words of the sibylline oracle (Freida Pinto), who convinces him that he is the key to stopping the bloodthirsty king. “
Immortals was a movie that Becky had zero interest in seeing and I should have listened to her. The critics said it was terrible and I usually don’t agree with them, but in this case they were right on the money. Surprisingly, the viewers that I read reviews from liked this movie, which was why I thought I would give it a chance. That was a big mistake.
It was produced by the same guy who did 300, which is another graphic war movie and extremely violent. This film stars Mickey Rourke and a few other less well known actors, who all got in great shape for the film. The acting is good and the story even has some interesting aspects to it, with the Greek gods and in search of a magical bow to unleash the Titans. However, the acting can’t save this movie because it’s beyond disturbing in the use of violence. If you enjoy seeing people cut their tongues off with a pair of scissors, other people getting their heads cut off, throats slit, murder, people being burned alive and all sorts of other brutality than this is your kind of movie. It was disturbing and there wasn’t much more to this film beyond the non-stop violence.
It reminded me of why God destroyed the Earth with a Flood the first time around because men only did and thought of evil continually and there was so much violence on Earth. I don’t think this one is worth your time.
