[Movie Review] Immortal in 3D

Here comes my another movie review on this action/fantasy movie which is out on the theatres on 17th November 2011, Immortal, available in 3D!

Starring: Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, Joseph Morgan, Freida Pinto, John Hurt, Isabel Lucas, Mickey Rourke

The story on Immortal, happened in the era when mankind and ancient Greek Gods existed. Just like the movies 300 and Clash Of The Titans, Immortal was all about Greek Mythology, Triumph over Evil.

The movie Immortal began with the beautiful sceneries, and homes of the villagers. Watching these scenes in 3D was extremely beautiful and I was really stunned by the great CGI (Computer Generated Image).

In the story, there was this over-ambitious King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) who would resort to killings in order to find a legendary weapon, Epirus Bow, which was created by God-of-war, Ares. With Epirus Bow, King Hyperion would be able to free the Titans from Tartarus and use them to take revenge on the Olympians who had destroyed his kingdom. The Olympians gained their supremacy in a war of gods in which Zeus led his siblings to victory over the Titans.

The Titans had been locked up while the mankind carried on with their daily lives on earth and the Gods were on heaven.

In the law of Gods, they were not allowed to make any form of their true appearance and existence infront of human, neither could they helped to defend the mankind against King Hyperion who showed cruelty to human.

If the Gods helped, they would be severely punished.

One by one, each village were taken over by King Hyperion who was still in search to find the hidden Epirus Bow.

It was only when Hyperion reached the village where Theseus (Henry Cavill) lived, a hero finally existed to fight for the humanity.

Theseus was chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans) since young, learnt to be brave, with a righteous mind. Theseus was born was an illegibility son and was despised by everyone since young. It was the hardship which he faced that made him strong.

He met a lady who could see visions of the future, Priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto). Priestess Phaedra was also on the wanted list by King Hyperion.

I am pretty amazed by the wisdom in Priestess Phaedra. She was alert and brave. There was a scene when Priestess Phaedra accidentally tripped onto Theseus’s feet and immediately she had a vision. She knew Theseus was someone special and had been touched by a God. At that point of time, Theseus (captured by King Hyperion) tried to keep himself alive without drinking any water. When most of us would have thought Priestess Phaedra (who was also captured) was going to drink water from the fountain, she was actually holding the water insider her mouth to give to Theseus.

Both of them, together with a thief called Stavos (Stephen Dorff), braved their hearts and souls to save their homeland.

Immortal is a 3D movie showing how Triumph can come over the Evil as long as people has faith and a sense of righteous.

Even when Poseidon who is the God of the sea, knew that Gods were not allowed to come in-between the dispute between human and King Hyperion, he actually sacrificed himself to save Theseus and his friends. Poseidon has shown his sense of righteous in this movie, and his punishment really saddened me.

  1. I’m so out of the loop, I hadn’t even heard of this movie until I stumbled upon your blog. Thanks for sharing. I enjoy Greek mythology, so if this ever trickles down to the nearest RedBox, I’ll be sure to check it out.
