Introduction

Greek Mythology has served as one of the oldest sources of inspiration for any stories and storytellers throughout the centuries; authors from Shakespeare to Ridley Scott have created tales that either allude to or outright adapt some of the oldest and most famous tales from Achaean Lore. Indian director Tarsem Singh continued this tradition in 2011 with his film Immortals. Starring Henry Cavill, in what would more or less serve as his breakout role, alongside the likes of Stephen Dorff, Mickey Rourke, and Luke Evans Immortals is essentially a retelling of the Greek hero Theseus' journey through the Labyrinth and battle against the Minotaur - only with Hollywood grade special effects and a bevy of action scenes.

Immortals Inspired Dog Name Considerations

In many respects, Immortals was a "Sword and Sandal Epic" that was made in the same spirit of films like Desmond Davis' Clash of the Titans and Don Chaffey's Jason and the Argonauts before it. Immortals loosely followed the blueprint of a classic Greek Myth to tell a new story that was more in line with society's tastes and standards at the time of its release. While the film's mixed critical reception indicates that some appreciated the film's interpretation of Theseus' journey through the Labyrinth more than others, the film's commercial success suggests that folks were at least entertained by the film to see it again and again. In other words, most view Immortals as a film that isn't extraordinarily great but is nonetheless a blast to watch. 

This has mostly been attributed to Singh's unique visual style as a director - something that's stood out ever since the director's early music videos from the 1990s (Singh directed R.E.M's Losing My Religion and Deep Forest's Sweet Lullaby to name a few). The movie also has plenty of great action sequences that may be reminiscent of Zack Snyder's film 300 - another film that was lauded for its intricate fight scenes and distinct visuals. Immortals is definitely a film that's worth a watch if you're a fan of fantasy films, Greek Epics, or action movies. Who knows, you may end up liking the film enough to name your pet after something or someone you see in it. Think Typhon, Pluto, Scylla or Juno and go from there!
