This is the worst movie I've seen in years.
A movie is a summation of all parts. Script. Casting. Direction. Acting. Character Development. And lighting.
THE IMMORTALS failed in each of the above, and miserably. As a mythology buff (primarily Greek, Roman, Norse), I was prepared to give this film a very wide leeway; however, I had to suffer my gag reflex to get through it. So let's go through it again.
The script was awful, the casting, dreadful The gods looked like models from GAY QUARTERLY, and the costumes looked like auto parts from a junkyard that were spray painted gold.
The directing was abysmal and there was absolutely no character development. It should thus come as no surprise that the entire move was astoundingly, horrendously, dreadfully awful. Much of the movie was so dark that I could barely see anything on my Kindle Fire, even when the lights were dimmed.
I wish I could find a strong point about the film, but all the strong points were in how bad the movie was.
Zeus, the King of the gods, has vanquished the Titans and placed them in a mountain guarded by a giant wall. He lives by one unbreakable law: the gods cannot directly interfere with the affairs of men. This is odd because in Greek mythology, the gods were incessantly interfering in the affairs of men. Heracles, Theseus' cousin, was one of the gods, and a character that had virtually no lines in the movie, was simply an onlooker. His entire life was spent as a mortal with superhuman strength. One wonders why he wasn't the protagonist of the movie, but it is actually Theseus who has this dubious honor. I can't recall the name of the actor at the moment, but he played another two-dimensional character called Superman in MAN OF STEEL.
If you are taking a college course on how not to make a movie, I unhesitatingly recommend this movie. Otherwise don't waste your time or money.
