Review Samplings:

This Reviewer loved it!
James Berardinelli, ReelViews

"The same hyperstylized, comic book-come-to-life approach that created an invigorating experience for viewers of 300 elevates Immortals above the level of a Clash of the Titans knock-off."

review


This Reviewer liked it!
John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

"The most unpretentious -- or should that be ridiculous? -- film yet from style-drunk director Tarsem Singh is also his most enjoyable, a Cuisinart-blended shot of Greek mythology and ultraviolent effects that chokes the viewer with unrelenting design."

This Reviewer disliked it!
Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"When Hyperion says of one character, "His pain has just begun,'' you know exactly how he feels."

review
When reading reviews remember: "Critics are like eunuchs in a harem; they know how its done, they've seen it done every day, but they're unable to do it themselves." --Brendan Behan (successful Irish dramatist)

"Having the critics praise you is like having the hangman say you've got a pretty neck." --Eli Wallach (award winning screen actor)
