Sure the visuals are stunning in Tarsem Singh's Immortals but is it enough to keep audiences happy? The critics are divided:
"However indulgent, Tarsem brings art museums to the movies, thrillingly injecting popular fantasy with acute senses of the classic and the avant garde."
— R. Kurt Osenlund, Slant
"The film is handsome enough to recommend on the strength of the visuals alone, which is basically what I'm doing."
— Matt Singer, IFC.com
"...if it's violence ye seek, and violently confused storytelling, look ye no further."
— Kyle Smith, New York Post
"...The Immortals is without doubt the best-looking awful movie you will ever see."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"As in his The Fall, director Tarsem Singh's visual instincts overwhelm his storytelling finesse."
— Mark Jenkins, Washington Post
"...half 300 and half Clash of the Titans, although duller and sillier than both combined."
— Scott Weinberg, Twitch
