Fresh: Without any narrative heft, these sights don't last in the mind much longer than they linger on screen. And yet they thrill in short-lived bursts that Singh doles out carefully, keeping pace with the audience's appetite.

Rotten: Where are the gods of Olympus when you need them? I ask on behalf of "Immortals," because mere mortals were apparently not able to create a movie that actually made sense.

Fresh: With "Immortals," Singh finally acknowledges that he's making movies, rather than just beautiful moving pictures.

My type of movie! BUT, I watched this movie with jaded eyes, expecting it to be more hype than substance. I was pleasantly surprised. To my amusement, I found myself gripping the arms of my chair more than once in the epic battle scenes. The special effects were solid, the dialogue better than average, and well acted by newer and veteran actors alike. Very well done, compelling storyline, marvelous combat moves, not overly gory...good movie!

Singh is a master of visuals. Here he uses them incredibly well to completely distract you from a rather tired plot. Hyperion, played as a filthy cruel terror by Rourke, wants a special bow so he can release the Titans and take on the Gods. Theseus is your average hero in such a genre. Is he man or god or both? And how will he handle his power? Luke Evans and a band of pin ups play the gods, which kind of makes sense because if I were a god, I'd make myself gorgeous. The action scenes are stunning, but can also feel as though they are ripped straight from a music video. Sometimes this makes them disconnected from the plot and they lack emotion. Compared to last years Clash of the Titans, this just wins on some memorable visuals, which ranges from the costumes to the settings, such as the cliff-side village. Give it a whirl, but I too am waiting for the great classic Greek mythological gem.
