Immortals (2011)

A long period ago before first humans start walking on the land, there was an epic battle between Gods and Titans. The first won and put the Titans into a jail, in the bottom of mount Tartaros. But now, a new warlord, crazy for glory and power, Hyperion conquers ancient Greece piece by piece. His army kills innocent masses, destroy everything as they seek for a legendary weapon, the Epirus Bow. The only one that can unleash the Titans. Zeus has been transformed into a wise old man who advices brave Theseus, a young strong peasant to follow his destiny and save humanity from Hyperion and his hordes. Stylish and gory as '300', it was a nice gem especially if you watch it in cinema. I liked Mickey Rourke once more for a very satisfying role. The direction was fine and the visuals just amazing. The only disappointing thing was about the plot that disturbs the ancient Greek Mythology blending Theseus and the Minotaur legend with the epic battle between 12 Gods of ancient Greece and the Titans. As well no one God never died actually. But it is still an enjoyable movie.
