To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
No pulse because the heart is missing, in the sense that you don't really care for the characters or see the arc as they develop. Whatever you might think of Clash of the Titans (COTT) they at least attempted that. There is no tension and scenes pale in comparison to other films - LOTR: Helms Deep compared to the Great Wall here just one of many you can make. Mickey Rourke hams it while trying to be quietly menacing failing where Stellan Skarsgård prevails in "King Arthur" as Cerdic.
Pains me to say this as I loved him in "The Tudors" but Henry Cavill's performance is mainly done by his physique. He is not given a script, or the time , to show an emotional performance. It does seem that he is overwhelmed with the lead role. He can do better, but he really is not given the chance to do so here before we head off for the next cut and thrust.
So does the action and bravado make up for it, like it did in 300? Sadly not because it's too quick, save for the Titans V Gods and the final showdown, when they remember to draw it out for some belated tension. No cinematography, seems CGI ruled that out. Rather this is action porno of the limp kind. If you want that (and the five star reviews seem to love this of Immortals) then I would recommend Ninja for the blood lust.
I'd almost recommend anything else to watch but this film. Not because it's terrible but because it's annoying when you've seen other films pull it off so much better. Hence me wanting to give it 2.5/5. It does not deserve a 3 because this is an average effort.
Der Inhalt des Films ist null; in seiner Bildgestaltung orientiert er sich am viel besseren „300“, wobei er voll auf 3D setzt, um von seiner Inhalts- und Ideenlosigkeit abzulenken. Da die allermeisten von uns im Heimkino kein 3D verwenden, wirkt das Gezeigte „seltsam“. Dementsprechend enttäuschend ist der Film auch in dieser Hinsicht, trotz einiger Stars. Fazit: Kannste dir schenken, Mann!
Why are blue ray dvd's so hard to understand - the actors whisper and then the music blares out enough to give you a heart attack - turned it off after about 15 minutes - L O U S Y - DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
