Immortals (2011) - Tarsem Singh
The Immortal's is watchable essentially because of Tarsem's art design and
visual style which make this film interesting enough from start to finish. The
real problem with this one is that the storyline is very boring and stilted, not really offering anything interesting in terms of narrative. The thing that
impressed me most about this film was Tarsem's ability to direct action sequences. I've never thought he was
particularly strong in that category but this film, particularly the fight scenes with the gods, are impressive and unique action sequences. I can't
say I'm sold on Henry Cavill as an actor yet, he isn't terrible but he came off a little wooden at times throughout this film. Tarsem Singh's Immortals is an entertaining enough experience consisting of impressive visuals that make it watchable, with the narrative being the biggest negative of the film.
