- Director Tarsem Singh's previous work, Immortals
, looks awful.
No kidding. I saw the trailer for it in a movie theater a couple of weeks ago, and thought it looked like a bad rip-off of Clash Of The Titans. And that
movie sucked sweaty donkey balls to begin with. Definitely not one I'm going to watch.
Immortals is getting all around good reviews as a gonzo action flick. Anyone who wanted an actual story will be disappointed, apparently. But I didn't go see 300 for its story and I probably won't see Immortals for its story either.
As for Stewart, I recognized her even though I haven't seen those (I assume to be) awful movies. She's young, she might turn into a good actress, but she's not now and clearly there to draw in a certain segment of the market to the movie. I can think of at least two actresses I'd have picked for this role: Zooey Deschanel and Christina Ricci, both have the dark hair and piercing eyes to pull this one off, and their acting isn't so unfortunate as to not be capable of the role.
