Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Immortals is an action/fantasy movie filled with tons of fighting, violence, and blood -- all rendered even more visceral and intense in 3-D. The movie's impressive visuals and costume design are notable, but they're overshadowed by the violence, which is very, very strong, especially once the gods get involved. There's slow-motion bashing of skulls -- several at a time, with flying brain, bone, and blood -- and three young women are the victims of torture, though that particular act isn't shown onscreen (the aftermath is). There's one sex act between the hero and the heroine, with kissing and some nudity. Other movies in this genre, like 300, have been popular, and kids may want to see this, too. But it should only be for the most mature teens.
A sex scene with partial female nudity: Characters kiss, and the man is shirtless, already in bed. Then the woman drops her clothes, and her bottom is visible (close-up). After she lies down, a breast is visible, but in shadow. Another woman appears somewhat naked but covered in makeup, and there's some strong innuendo, including banter surrounding the Oracle's virginity.
The movie starts out with heavy fantasy violence, including sword fighting, stabbing, punching, kicking, and getting pierced with flying arrows. A priest is burned alive, and a man's private parts are smashed with a giant mallet. Then, when the gods get involved, the slayings escalate, including bashed, exploding heads with chunks of skull, brain, and blood flying in all directions -- in slow motion, and in 3-D. Also, three young women are beaten and tortured off screen; viewers see the results, with the women covered in blood and writhing in pain. A mother's throat is cut in front of her son, and a monk cuts off his own tongue in order not to reveal a secret.
One use of "bastard" and a few uses of "whore."
The entire movie is about fighting and war. One character speaks of the wisdom of knowing when to fight, but according to this movie, the answer is "all the time."
