Storyline

A crafty nightclub owner (Jack) brings together a group of small time hoods and teams them up in unusual pairs (black man and white racist, Ivy Leaguer and simpleton) for a set of multiple heists which turn out to be an elaborate double cross against a notorious gangster (Dominic). During an extended standoff in a nightclub between Jack and his band of thieves and Dominic's henchman, the hoods discover why Jack brought them all together for what amounts to a suicidal mission.

A Precursor To OCEAN`S ELEVEN ? ....
6 July 2003 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

.... Well that`s what I thought THE IMMORTALS was going to be like in the opening scene with Eric Roberts character telling his cohorts that he wants them to take part in a heist . Roberts is certainly cool enough to have easily fitted into the recent remake of the rat pack movie , but unfortunately he`s best known for cable and straight to video movies and the problem with THE IMMORTALS is that it has all the production values of a straight to video movie , especially the script which feels like it was written by screenwriters who`ve been watching Tarantino movies a bit too often . The plot twists and turns as you`d expect from Tarantino but the plot does so in an underdeveloped silly way instead of being smart and funny which I take was the original intention
