Immortals is coming to theaters soon. I should be excited right? Greek Gods and Goddesses? Men in manly skirts? Cool, epic settings and high drama.
So I watched this trailer and I thought, Huh… This could go either way: Love or Pass. At this point, I’m thinking Pass – which makes me sad.
And I’ll be honest and tell you why I think it’s a pass. There are a few actors that have this innate ability to kill a film. Sure, they might make an awesome flick now and then, but for the most part you see them and you feel that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach – you see them and know. Mickey Rourke is one of those actors for me. He is great when he’s in ‘his’ role (ie himself in different yet similar stories and scenarios). But putting him into a mythological backdrop as a king questing for a magical bow that will unleash the Titans (the Olympic Gods enemies) before it can be found by the Olympians champion Theseus.
The ‘young cast’ is very…. interesting. I mean, Kellan Lutz as young Poseidon doesn’t chase me off? BUT, Luke Evans as Zeus? Isabel Lucas as Athena – well, you can see my concern.
Anyway, I guess I’ll revisit once I’ve actually seen the whole movie. Until then, check this out – and let me know what you think… click here.
