The gods can be a fickle bunch, too secure in their authority and position. And the humans they reign over can be an unappreciable lot, always looking for more power. But, oh, when these two groups face off, it is a war for the ages.
The latest epic battle between the gods and mortals plays out in the stylized action/adventure film Immortals, directed by Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall). In the movie, the ruthless power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army razes one ancient Greek city after another in search of a legendary bow that could destroy the gods of Olympus—and mankind in the process. The only person who can stop the king’s madness and keep the delicate balance of power between the gods and the mortals in check lies on the shoulders of a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill).
