Storyline

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 (Daniel Sharman). 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 (Luke Evans), Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders, including visionary ...

Goofs

When people are being evacuated from Theseus' village, one of the carts used has modern (post-1900) bicycle wheels, complete with metal spokes (painted black) laced in a cross 3 pattern and chrome plated double flanged hubs. These would not be seen until the start of the 20th century. See more »

Alternate Versions

The UK version was cut by 18 seconds to achieve a '15' certificate. Three cuts were made for violence: a mother's throat being cut; a soldier's eyes being gouged; and a king being beheaded. A disturbing scene of the oracle's 'sisters' being found roasted alive in a large metal bull was also cut. In addition to this the BBFC's website cites "reducing some focus on large splashes of blood". However, two major scenes and some smaller sequences had very significant amounts of gore digitally altered. The very extensive red bloodletting in some scenes has been changed into black 'blood' substantially altering the impact of these scenes. These changes affect several minutes of screen time. So although the overall running time has been cut by only 18 seconds the amount of censored material is much longer and very significant in changing the overall tone of the film. The USA version is uncut with an 'R' rating. See more »

Seriously? Save the negative criticism. This movie was made for all avid movie goers alike!
11 November 2011 | by zcoogler05See all my reviews

Honestly...I don't review many movies unless I truly see it necessary. I saw Immortals this afternoon in a matinée and thought that it was an all around great movie. I am getting really sick and tired of hearing all this negative criticism about movies that lack CGI or have an overabundance of CGI. Seriously? Is it always something that isn't good enough? People, we live in the 21st century. What do you expect movie producers and designers to do with the ongoing technological developments? The cinematic experience of today is a culmination of savory snacks and drinks with an absolutely jaw dropping, eye opening motion picture that displays technology's latest and greatest effects to the ever expectant viewers. 75 % of people who attend a movie WANT to go and see what vast improvements that technology has brought to the theater on that occasion. It's a thrill to experience unimaginable landscapes, vivid colors, epic battle sequences, and all things as such...and we are provided these things BY means of technology aka CGI. So, what I am saying, is that if you really want a film without all the technological aspects, then go to a drive-in or sit at home and pop The Goonies into your dust ridden VCR. You know that movies like Immortals are going to be filled with computer generated scenes. If you are going to argue about it in the end every time, then just stay at home and save yourself and the rest of the viewing community a lot of unwanted negativity. By the way, Immortals is so worth seeing. Thanks.
