I remember when I first saw the preview for the film Immortals. My face was like :D. I thought it was going to be an epic movie done in the style of 300 which will depict an epic battle between the Gods and Titans in Heaven. When I saw the movie my face was like -____________-
Here are three things that made me hate the movie.
- King Hyperion: His motives for raging war and releasing the titans was so weak and pathetic I thought I heard wrong. He was really angry at the gods because they didn't heal his family. He was killing millions and torturing countless because the gods did nothing. A villain is only as good as his conviction. All this time I thought the gods wronged him and did "something". But in reality he's mad because they did nothing. That's a good reason for not believing in the gods, but to rage war in the sake of throwing them down. I don't think so
- The gods. Whoever told the writers and director that the Greek Gods don't like to interfere with mortals lied terribly. The gods interfered for the sake of interfering, hell sometimes they interfered simply because they could. Also if your going to have the greek gods, atleast have the whole pantheon. Not just 5 of them. However my biggest gripe about the gods were that they didn't look like gods, they looked like teenagers sitting at the cool table during lunch time like what? They didn't convince me of their godliness at all. (Also why was zeus so big on not interfere in the affairs of mortals when he himself was prepping the protagonist to be a warrior from day one, that's plain interfering regardless of how you're putting it)
- Remember this scene guys
Long rant short: If your movie is about greek legend of man vs man with references to the gods don't market it to be a greek legend of Gods vs Gods with the references with man.
Anyone feel this way.
