Movie Review: Immortals (2011)


Summary from IMDB:

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.

Can you guess who he is? He’s Zeus in human form!

Zeus killed his son for interfering with human affairs before the Titans were unleashed.
It is a rule that they are not supposed to break.
So cruel T.T

Theseus finally found the Epirus Bow by fate

Freida Pinto as Phaedra, the Oracle who can see the future.
Theseus fights for his homeland!
Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion, the villain.
Don’t you think he looks like a cat? MEOW~

Comments: OK, well I’m usually not a critic. I usually don’t give bad ratings but this movie sucks thanks to the Censorship Board who cuts not only the sex scene but also torture scenes. I think if you want to cut it, better cut it properly as to not let the audiences know so obvious that it was cut. It’s just very potong stim. Zzz~~ Plot wise was kinda predictable and plain too :/

Description of this movie in less than 10 words: 

*ching qiang* *urgh argh!!!* *splash* (loop 10 times) -END-
My advice, don’t watch in Malaysia. Watch the uncensored version instead if you really want to catch this movie. TQVM.
