"His ultimate goal is to use the bow to free the Titans who were enslaved by the Gods in Mount Tarterus."

That's what bothered me more than anything. If you're going to imprison "GODS," make darn sure the prison you build for them is inaccessible by anyone; especially disgruntled mortals. The location of their confinement should be as legendary as the captives kept in it. In Christendom, Tartarus (for the fallen angels who intermingled with humanity) is secreted in a place unreachable by humans.

On a side note: that's what bothered me about superman's fortress of solitude. Why was it so accessible by anyone who just happened by? Why not a 10-ton key or secret Kyrptonian code or something? Who leaves their door unlocked nowadays especially with a super genius lurking about.

Immortals makes John Carter look like Oscar material.  Lots of blood, zero acting, dull story, forgettable characters and a downright snooze fest.

Yeah, this movie was a stinker. I will say Rourke was the better part of this blah fest.

It was far from my favorite film of the year, but it wasn't that bad.  They just focused on style over substance a bit too much.

 Does anyone remember just how bad some of those old Greek mythology sandle epics were back in the day?  Some were so bad, you had to overlook a lot, even as a kid, just to see a monster appear.  

Not sure what anyone expected from this film.  It was obviously going for 300's style.  From the trailers, it looked like all the action took place on one hillside.  That said, until I read this review, I was going to Netflix it.

Inner...I sure do.  Used to love those old Steeve Reeves film as a kid.  But you're talking about films that were made on a shoestring budget with dubbed Italian actors (except for Reeves).  Not a film that had a budget of around $100 million.

I grew up with Steve Reeves as well. The Hercules franchise and the cheap 'Sons of Hercules' knockoffs entertained me as a child of 11. We had three channels on a 13 inch black & white set, and we were thankful.

I agree with ultrazilla. I mean I love style and eye candy more than most but just not enough substance to sustain the film. I still enjoyed it some but it didn't live up to what I was ecpecting and hoping for.

Sure didn't live up to Singh's prior efforts
