Before watching Immortals, I was expecting a narrated tale like 300. I was pleased that it was not like that. I also liked that the Gods had some fight scenes in the movie, however I thought that they were a little too powerful when battling with the Titans. The special effects were GOOD! I loved the slow motion battle scenes. I cannot count the number of movies that I have watched where you can't tell what is going on in a battle scene. Especially one with a large number of people. 

I felt that the story line of the main character was a little short, and did not really give you any reason to relate to him. The world they lived in I thought needed a little more work, for it only took place around four major areas. I felt that it could have been branched out a bit.

Overall this movie definitely kept my attention and I enjoyed it immensely. I would definitely recommend Immortals!
