Director: Tarsem Singh
Stars: Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Mickey Rourke
People don’t expect much from flashy fantasy-epics like Immortals.
Just pit some Roman soldiers against a few Gods and most people will leave reasonably happy.
Yet director Tarsem Singh insists on breaking up short action sequences with long passages of stilted dialogue delivered by over-serious actors, killing the film’s momentum.
Singh framed some nice shots and Mickey Rourke is once again a standout, but Immortals can’t even deliver on the most basic level.
