Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king's hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man's conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion...until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders-including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) ... Written by
Director Tarsem Singh told Henry Cavill after their first meeting that if he got the role of Theseus, he would have to develop an "eight pack", not a "six pack". Cavill trained for six months and developed his abdominal muscles into a full "eight pack" which was then displayed throughout the movie in numerous shirtless scenes. He brought down his body fat percentage to 6%, which he subsequently maintained throughout the shoot. See more »

In Greece, the cruel and evil King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) is searching with his ruthless army the Epirus Bow, a powerful weapon made by the Gods, to unleash the imprisoned Titans and destroy the Gods. When King Hyperion comes to the village of the peasant Theseus (Henry Cavill), he kills his mother and brings Theseus as a slave to work in his mines. However, Phaedra (Freida Pinto) helps to release him with the support of the prisoner Stavros (Stephen Dorff).
Meanwhile Zeus (Luke Evans) advises the other Gods that they should not interfere with the human free will and the last hope of mankind and the Gods against Hyperion is Theseus.
"Immortals" is a disappointing film with a poor story and acting, but good CGI. Theseus and Zeus are performed by weak actors that do not represent well the powerful warrior and the Father of Gods and men. In the end, "Immortals" is a brutal and boring film. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Imortais" ("Immortals")
