Well I finally got out to see the latest offering from the visually intriguing director Tarsem Singh. Immortals is being played up like the next 300 and with the producers of 300 backing the production, they REALLY want it to be the next 300. While I enjoyed the offerings of Spartan soldiers holding back the tide of the massive Persian army in 300, I guess I was having my expectations set fairly high for a movie with such a visually, technical director. With a mythological setting and the incorporation of the standard hero journey, Immortals had all the trappings of a good film. Well, I sometimes throw around the term “style over substance” and sadly this is pretty much the very definition of that term.
