"The Immortals", how did I come to watch this? I read the IMDb reviews, user and critics. I saw the 5.8 rating by voters. The cast was very good. I like Eric Roberts' acting. William Forsythe is reliably good. Clarence Williams III always adds a twist. Joe Pantoliano brings freshness to his parts. How then did this movie go wrong? It's actually a terrible movie, and that's in the script and the whole telling of the story. The tone of the movie ends up being comic, or tries to be, and this says absolutely nothing as against the violence and copious blood. The project attempts to be Tarentino-like, I'm sorry to say. Chris Rock hurts the movie. He's a buffoon here, not at all funny. He's made to look like a fool clown; but he also does nothing to give any different impression. Tia Carrere is directed and edited very badly. Tony Curtis looks like a nitwit chewing gum and coming after his dough in such an open fashion. Everyone curses when confronted with the least difficulty. All emotion is reduced to a four letter word that begins with f. Terrible. Through a good deal of the movie, we have no idea what's going on or who these partnership duos are or why they go for a deal arranged by Roberts.
The director of this junk went into TV work after this movie. The writer thereafter continued to provide screenplays with such IMDb ratings as 5.2, 3.7, 3.9, 4.3, 3.3, and I stopped there.
