You could probably write a thesis on the symbolism of Greek gods wearing plastic spray-painted armor and the titans anachronistically being imprisoned in rebarb.
Is that like concrete reinforced with rhubarb?
Technically I don't think they're all moving at god speed (the enemies are Titans), until the gods kill a titan, at which point they revert back to the speed of the world in which they're fighting while the gods are still moving at superspeed. Or something.
This scene is around twice as long in the movie and is basically the coolest about it. Too bad the rest of it is guys with nice abs wandering around for no real reason.
I'll take guys with nice abs wandering around.
Obviously, they filmed this with the Unreal engine.
Like watching a cheezy 3d action game you can't even play.
I guess Final Destination isn't the low mark for crappy CGI blood anymore.
Subject: Bullet time
Hello friend in Christ
I am writing today from the Isle of Man to inform you of a fantastic opportunity. My grandfather was the original bullet time of the Republic of Zaire. He ruled his country with a purpose: either to slow down and allow the eye to take in all the rich imagery on screen (John Woo's flying doves) or perhaps tying into the story itself (The Matrix). My royal family was then exiled by gimmick directors who have no fucking clue what they're doing. Today my nation's film studio and space program are run via cargo cult. I urgently require you to NOT send $12 to secure accounts of lazy filmmakers so garbage like this stops getting made.
I await your response faithfully.

The Marines are going to be really angry when they found out someone made a movie out of their commercials.
Those costumes are truly terrible.
Man, I was all set to jump in here and defend Eiko Ishioka (who did Tarsem's earlier films, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Paul Schrader's amazing Mishima, and also Grace Jones' disco-ball bowler hat) until I actually watched the clip.
WHAT HAPPENED :(
brb, going to go stare at pictures of Tom Waits as Renfield and sigh to myself
I know Mr Tarsem has to pay his bills after funding The Fall with his own money, but he could have pick a better project. This movie did pretty bad as far as i know.

It made $200 million on a $75 million budget. As flawed as Immortals was, Tarsem's upcoming SNow White adaptation looks painfully boring and awful without even the benefit of inventive visuals.

This makes Giant of Marathon look like Gladiator and Ben Hur combined, comparatively.
The moral here is that women suck at fighting and showing compassion for a woman will get you stabbed in the thigh.
Apparently that shitty armor gives those guys Viewtiful Joe slo-mo powers.
a little racist. Just a little.
using the Rendering Asunder 3D engine.
Awesome trident fighting.
There were lots of things I didn't like about this movie. Mickey Rourke is fucking awful. The retarded interpretation of roman mythology.
I rather enjoyed this particular scene, however.
