Immortals

Directed by Tarsem Singh
Cast  Henry Cavill, Freida Pinto
Mickey Rourke, Stephen Dorff

Hyperion played by the meancing Mickey Rourke
the ruler of Crete, declares war on Olympus
after the Gods fail to help save the lives of his
family. His ultimate aim is to release the Titans
from Mount Tartarus in turn destroying the Gods.

Theseus played by Henry Cavill, who’s mum was
killed by Hyperion, seeks revenge and leads a
small band of soldiers against the army of Hyperion.

IMMORTALS is no 300 but a decent fantasy
movie nevertheless. The storyline seemed rushed,
and some of the actors wasted in their respective
roles. Could have been so much better.
7/10 

The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption


Directed by Roel Reiné
Cast Victor Webster, Ron Perlman, Billy Zane

Sadly this movie is dreadful and is an early
contender for Worst Movie of 2012. I loved
the original “Mummy” Spin off directed by
Chuck Russell and starring the Rock but this
was just painful to watch in every department.

Billy Zane hamming it up like he was in a Mel
Brooks movie and Ron Perlman looking the
same as he always does (Hellboy) aside,
uttering a few sentences and taking home his
pay packet. And don’t get me started on
Bostin Christopher the actor who was simply
brought on board to violently burp at any
available moment to give the audience
something to chuckle at – how ridiculous.


Victor Webster playing the Scorpion King was
like the movie, a very big disappointment.
