Thoughts On Immortals

Posted in Movies by mibnufajar on 9 January, 2012


I’m a sucker for a movie with beautiful scenery, exquisite dress and supernatural action, and Immortals deliver it all. I watched it awhile ago, and besides the amount of violence, I like it. The movie tell the story of Theseus, a nobody whom chosen by Zeus to fight Hyperion, your typical tyrant, who is trying to resurrect The Titans, the ruling Gods before Zeus, in order to rule the world.

Rather than doing the usual movie review, I’m just gonna put some thoughts that ‘distract’ me while watching the movie. (Ok, besides the obvious distractions called “Henry Cavill and Kellan Lutz super hotness”).

1). Theseus was supposed to a demigod, the son of a Queen and a King and Poseidon. Yet in the movie they made him a bastard son of some unknown villager.

(Theseus. Probably daydreaming what if he was a demigod, like he was supposed to be)

2). Theseus arm is so big but he’s chopping wood for like, five times yet it doesn’t break. (Watch the movie, and pay close attention when he’s chopping wood besides an old man)

3).They are wearing a very-very beautiful costumes. For Gods there’s daily dress, war dress, mourning dress. There’s a dress for every occasion.

(Olympians war dress. And why there’s only five of them ? Oh Zeus, You shouldn’t have killed Ares. He’s God of War, after all.)

4). How does Kellan Lutz gets a super sexy body ? Smokin’ hot.

5). The Titans was gods before the Olympians (Zeus cs) rules, yet in the movie, they made him like some sort of savages tribe.

(How many are they ? There are only like 12 titans, mythically speaking)

6). Zeus killed Ares for helping Theseus but not Athena. When fighting the titans, Zeus only stopped when Athena is dying. When tartarus is collapsing, he only brought Athena’s body. Is he in love with her?

(There’s two horse ready to bang. And there’s Athena)

7). So many violence. I can’t help but cringe when the priest cut his tongue

8). Freida Pinto acting is so convincing when she realized that her sisters is being cooked alive.

(The most tragic scene in the movie)

9). Poseidon’s hat looks so ridiculous

(Poseidon Ridiculous hat..  and body)

10). Theseus’ son, Acamas, is kinda ugly. Seriously, how could he. Both of his parent are good looking.

11). The Gods was kinda mortal for an immortal.

    i like ur review, but just to point out some things, the movie is based on greek myths but not a direct adaptation, so the characters may be familiar, but the story isnt so much. it like they used to story to tell a different story. hence 1,5 and 11… 2 – he was chatting with the old man so maybe he wasnt putting in much effort. 6 – ares wasnt apologetic so he got killed, and athena was kinda alive so she could be brought back. jst my 2 cts… 🙂
