Immortals

Posted November 14, 2011 : Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Review

Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve seen Immortals. But I did not like it at all, which is why I haven’t seen it again now that it’s opened.

How many critics, do you think, used the title of this film to describe the film itself?

Going in, this movie had a lot stacked against it. I don’t like Catherine Hardwick. I don’t like Amanda Seyfried. I did not expect much.

As much as I like to see science fiction movies outside the expected tropes of the genre I wouldn’t recommend this one.

There was an interesting mystery that initially drew me in. I wanted to

It’s kind of hard to score a movie like this, because all of the elements are different (though, sort of, they shouldn’t be which is why it comes out so low).

I think it was probably too much to expect any sort of deeper mythology, but with a good writer it could have

Cinematically flawed, and in frustrating and easily avoidable ways that I unequivocally blame Catherine Hardwicke for, and a little bit Summit for hiring her.

I think the biggest problem is they made a movie for the fans. And you can’t do that

Really there’s very little I can say about this movie, because there’s very little movie to say anything about. The characters are one dimensional. There is virtually no story (and I’m saying that about one of the Mummy movies. Wrap your head around that.) There’s a lot of action.
