The Immortals looks tasteful, restrained

The swimming elephant scene in The Fall is one of the coolest scenes I’ve ever seen, and now director Tarsem Singh is taking his knack for amazing visuals and preposterous costumes to mythical ancient Greece in The Immortals, starring Mickey Rourke and some other people. Basically, if you saw 300 and thought, “Neat, but could use more dramatic slo-mo,” or saw Clash of the Titans and thought, “Cool, but could it be more like 300?”  Then this is the movie for you.

“The Immortals is like 300 for people who like 300!” -Accurate Pete Hammond.

Note: Not to be confused with the actual sequel to 300.  I predict a gritty 300 in the style of 300.
