Review of Immortals

IMMORTALS is a dark, violent movie and it's easily at its best when carnage covers the screen, huge for blood-soaked fans.
Virile gods like super heroes in golden armours. Chiseled abs, great body tone and their warrior spirit makes the movie fabulous. Cavill is handsome with a chiseled body, battle ready and full of rage, looking every inch a living sculpture. Luke Evans as Zeus is god-like and Kellan Lutz as Poseidon was buff as roided! Good-looking and bloody fight sequences, filmed in slow motion to the elaborated transitions from one shot to the other and the amazingly ripped eight pack abs of Henry Cavill.
Immortals battle scenes are bloody and well-staged (and obviously influenced by 300),. In the end there's a fight between Gods and Titans and it boils down to a bombastic orgy of killing with little substance behind it, but hey, that's actually kind of alright with me. The scene where Ares massacred Hyperion's warriors was great. You wanna see the Gods v. Titans fight scenes and Ares' rampage in good clarity. I can't stress enough how awesome those parts were! Gods are like an elite martial arts crew! Luke Evans Zeus clad in gold plated armor butchering the titans!, Ares (Daniel Sharman) and Poseidon (Kellan Lutz).), Apollo (Corey Sevier), and Heracles (Steve Byers) saturate the movie with jaw-dropping graphics, heart-palpitating adventure with an exciting climax to the finish. Killing and slashing and annihilating warriors, all this performed by brave, bare-chested males with bulging biceps, clenched jaws, and blazing eyes. Theseus's and King Hyperion's respective warriors were alpha males on the peak, testosterone-fueled beefcake, also like that brute in the Minotaur armor who battles Theseus for the bow. Many fight to the death, many are savagely killed, hunky muscle-men on display to its endless stylized slo-mo beheadings, blood sprays, decapitations, ball busting.
Singh rises above expectation here in creating an absolutely spectacular visual orgasm filled with intense mind-boggling fight scenes and stunning male musculature. There are no end of battle scenes, , in which beheading and skewering are routine. Theseus is so strong he actually stabs one enemy with the end of his pike and tosses him with great force against a rock wall. images of carnage (sometimes in slow motion), detailed settings, and over-the-top instances of machismo, When swords are flying, people’s heads are exploding and abdomens are sliced open to reveal a shimmering scarlet lattice of internal organs, “Immortals” is at its finest. And the blood FLOWS when gods go to battle with the Titans. The fight scene choreography is fast, impressive and engrossing. Titans are split in half every which way, heads are destroyed, limbs removed, just crazy carnage.The Gods are slaughtering the Titans, but the Titans get the advantage and kill Heracles and the other God. They attack and are about the kill Poseidon when Zeus climbs on top of the cell and pulls out the handles which turns out to be chains. Make no mistake; the violence in this film is not for the faint of heart. Brutality is portrayed in the film’s climactic battle at the base of Mount Tartarus, where Hyperion and Theseus’ armies deliver a dizzying overload of slowed montages, carnage and intense executions. the fights in IMMORTALS are visceral, awe-inspiring, creative and insanely bad ass. Heads explode, get cut off and are crushed. The fight is brutal and bloody, featuring decapitations, disembowelings, impalings, warriors being chopped in half and hurled into stone walls, quite a few gods are seemingly killed - Immortals is a tantalizing feast of visual energy and brutal battles.
Tons of violence, gore and graphic death scenes. One scene in particular with Corey Sevier, who portrays Apollo, engages in a heroic, memorable battle that will have everyone on the edge of their seat.. The climactic battle between Theseus and Hyperion was very claustrophobic and brutal. The two characters battling so fiercely in such tight quarters made for a really heightened sense of drama and the realistic fight choreography served those scenes well. Hyperion ends up stabbing Theseus several times. In the end, Theseus stabs Hyperion in the neck killing him, but Theseus succumbs to his wounds and collapses on Hyperion’s body.
In my opinion: it's a guy movie. The epic clash between the hordes of Hyperion and the Greeks led by Theseus was amazing; however the fight between The Olympians and the Titans totally stole the show. I was literally jumping off my seat with every blow. "Immortals" will play well to frat boys, soldiers, jocks, and other macho types, all the bloody carnage and violence had me squirming in my seat.
