Immortals Reviews

  • Henry Cavill is on the verge of stardom.

    Julian Roman — MovieWeb

  • 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.

    Adam Markovitz — Entertainment Weekly

  • Sing to me, O Muse, of gods and men, of timeless legends and forgettable retreads. Speak of "Immortals," and answer in all seriousness: did you even read that awful script?

    Paul Brunick — New York Times

  • For all the digital mastery Immortals boasts, its hokey story leaves the film adrift.

    Scott Bowles — USA Today

  • As in his "The Fall," director Tarsem Singh's visual instincts overwhelm his storytelling finesse.

    Mark Jenkins — Washington Post

  • When Hyperion says of one character, "His pain has just begun,'' you know exactly how he feels.

    Ty Burr — Boston Globe

  • The posters read "From the Producers of 300" and, like Zack Snyder's film, Immortals has little on its mind but conveying the buzz of martial glory.

    Nick Pinkerton — Village Voice

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

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • This monumental tale of warring gods and men is a beautiful, dead thing, bereft of organic or kinetic life.

    Kathleen Murphy — MSN Movies

  • "The Immortals" is without doubt the best-looking awful movie you will ever see.

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • Singh is a talented and eccentric visual artist with no creative future in the movie business.

    J. R. Jones — Chicago Reader

  • Logic melts away completely and the pic's raison d'etre emerges -- namely, to justify staging a fight scene for the ages.

    Peter Debruge — Variety

  • If it's violence ye seek, and violently confused storytelling, look ye no further.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • Immortals is aimed squarely at the macho crowd, with the emphasis on heroics and bone-crunching violence in 3-D, with a splash of sexy time to lighten the mood and detract from the flaccid script.

    Linda Barnard — Toronto Star

  • Puffed-up style worthy of trumped-up lore.

    William Goss —

  • If you like blood and guts, with hand-to-hand (or should I say hand-to-spear) combat in video-game-style, you may like this more than I did.

    Leonard Maltin — indieWIRE

  • Solid yet hardly sensational, no luxury sedan but a good compact -- fairly efficient in its operation, typically clean in look, and guaranteed to reach its destination with a minimum of fuss.

    Rick Groen — Globe and Mail

  • The same hyperstylized, comic book-come-to-life approach that created an invigorating experience for viewers of 300 elevates Immortals above the level of a Clash of the Titans knock-off.

    James Berardinelli — ReelViews

  • Visually stunning, but heavy-handed and lacking a single moment that evinces any relish for movie-making.

    Todd McCarthy — Hollywood Reporter

  • The pity is that Tarsem's intelligence doesn't connect his cinematic eye to his narrative mind. The director's visual gift is like a brilliant retina, detached.

    Richard Corliss — TIME Magazine
