I know what you’re thinking – “oh no… please not another ‘300’ wannabe” after the likes of ‘The Last Legion’, ‘The Warrior’s Way’ and even a TV series, ‘Spartacus: Blood and Sand’ and its follow-up, ‘Spartacus: Gods of the Arena’; but unfortunately, the producers of the original have seen fit to extended Zack Snyder’s visual “graphic-novel movie” style, and this time, plug it into a pure myth, as opposed to historical legend, like in ‘300’. ‘Immortals’ is directed by Tarsem Singh (‘The Fall’, ‘The Cell’) and stars Mickey Rourke (‘Iron Man 2’, ‘The Wrestler’, ‘The Expendables); Henry Cavill (‘Stardust’, ‘Red Riding Hood’) and Luke Evans (‘Clash of the Titans’, ‘Tamara Drewe’). So with what seems to be quite a power-house of skilled visualist director and action stars behind it, the question follows as to whether it will live up to ‘300’ or just come out as another trying-really-hard-to-be’s. The plot follows the mythical story of the hero ‘Theseus’ and all his adventures and shit he does. So, the capitalising-on-300-ness aside, the actual visuals of this movie do look fucking spectacular, and I’ll definitely check it out, even if gets for the graphical element.
