.: Immortals :.

All men's soul are immortal,
But the soul of the righteous are immortal and divine.

Many will be catching the first screening of Immortals in Malaysia tomorrow 11.11.11.

But I was the lucky few to get to watch it last night, thanks to Joe!

Together with Joe, hig gf (Felicia), Ben & other lucky people, we got pretty good seats at Tropicana City Mall (TCM) to catch Immortals.

The movie basically revolves around the brutal & bloodthirsty King Hyperion, a Titan (portrayed by Mickey Rourke) and his Heraklion army rampaging across Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow. With utterly brutal and ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his bloodthirsty army of soldier went on to destroy everything in their wake to in search for this invincible Bow. For with that Bow, King Hyperion will be able to unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned by the Gods.

But as the ancient law dictates, the Gods must not interfere in man’s conflict, so they could only watch with despair.

As villages after villages are being destroyed, innocent citizens being killed, a stonemason named Theseus (portrayed by , which was secretly chosen & trained by Zeus, vows to avenge the death of his beloved mother who was slain in one of Hyperion’s raids.

Thesues meets with the Sybelline Virgin Oracle, Phaedra, with her visions of the future, believe that Thesues is the key to stop the annihilation of King Hyperion.

It was really a good movie. I was gripping to the chair from the beginning to the end. And there was plenty of gory & gruesome scenes during the slayings & battles. Not a movie for the weakhearted. And yes, I did cringe at one particular scene where they Lysanders was being “deseeded” (for a lack better word?). Man, that was mean!

What some may say; if you’ve loved 300, you’d love Immortals. The things is, I have not watched 300 *shame* and find this movie really enjoyable. Highly recommended!
