That trailer does absolutely nothing for me. But I will take a moment to recommend Tarsem's (the director this) film "The Fall." Genuinely great drama with tons of visual flair as a 1920s movie stuntman makes up a story for a little girl who is sick in the hospital with him.

It does have a style very similiar to 300/Clash of the Titans, but it was a pretty cool... I guess if you like 300, you'd probably like this....
I did miss some bits and pieces, but may watch it again this week... and will end up taking the wife when it finally has a regular release..

I just saw a spoiler in a commercial for this playing during the NFL morning show on ESPN.  What the hell is wrong with advertisers these days?

As I'm taking a course in mythology to fulfill an arts requirement for pharmacy school, I'd be interested in seeing Immortals if the filmmakers made an honest attempt to follow Greek mythology somewhat accurately, but I assume that isn't very likely.  Too bad, as sometimes stories don't really need much Hollywoodization to be interesting or compelling.

Yeah, when you put it like that, it sounds like creatively-bankrupt shovelware from a company that's been releasing nothing but more-of-the-same for years now. Yawn.

so, did anyone actually see this?  I saw this tonight and thought it was pretty fun.  I've seen Tarsem's previous efforts and I enjoyed this one far more than both The Cell and The Fall combined; of course it's more action filled than those two so comparisons are hard to do.

Not the worst film I've seen,  low end of mediocre for me.  I did enjoy the use of 3D though.  PRobably would have enjoyed it less if I had paid to see it at a theater instread of a rental.

While I was surprised that I enjoyed it at all (the commercials were decidedly lackluster), I can't disagree with Ceekay enough about The Fall being a lesser effort.  I friggin' love that movie.

I didn't say it was a lesser effort, I just didn't enjoy it much.

The Fall and The Iron Giant are two films I'm afraid to watch when there are other people in the room lest my man card be taken from me as I sob uncontrollably.

Get the hankies, Issie.  Get the hankies.

p.s. your GF will probably love it, but watch it alone first to avoid the embarrassment of what's to come.  I'm also amazed that Hollywood hasn't made Lee Pace a huge star.  The guy's a damn fine actor with a leading man's looks, the ability to do drama and a full grasp of comic timing.

Haven't seen this and didn't realize it was the same director as The Fall, which is one of my all-time favorite movies.  Also, absolutely one of the best child-actor performances ever given.
