300 Meets Clash of the Titans

Carly Saber, Staff Writer

   Blood–battle–Greek Gods. The new movie Immortals hit theaters on Friday, November 11th. On opening day, Theater 10 at AMC 18 was packed with people waiting to see the warriors in action; they were not let down. The movie was, no doubt, a blood bath. However, the plot line was filled with ancient Greek myths including the infamous Zeus, the Virgin Oracle, and, of course, the Titans.
  The story entails the brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army, rampaging across Greece in search for the lost Bow of Epirus. While the King and his army roam Greece, a stonemason Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother after she was killed in one of Hyperion’s raids. However, when Theseus meets the Virgin Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto) Theseus learns of her disturbing visions of his future and this in turn convinces her that he is the key to stopping the king. With her help, Theseus and other slaves band together to form an army to save the future of humanity. According to Kaleb Davies (9), “the plot was strong and the characters were believable down to the way the Greeks thought in the decline of their empire.” Furthermore, Davies added, “overall, it was a great cast, and just enough violence” for people to enjoy.
  Though the movie is not recommended for those who do not enjoy blood and gore, Immortals is currently ranked as the number one movie to watch according to yahoo.com. Even if battle films are not one’s favorite, the experience of watching this movie is definitely worth a try. If action movies are your thing, then this is one that you will not want to miss.
