'Immortals' review - A good trailer bites the dust

Have you seen the two-minute trailer for Immortals? It looks like 300, has greek gods and a ton of cool Matrix slow-mo shots, is full of cryptic, grand language, and the villain is Mikey Rourke wearing a horribly silly hat. It’s pretty cool, but after watching the full 110 minute version of Immortals, I must say: I like the trailer better. The trailer shows every cool action scene in the movie and you can rewatch it over and over, every two and a half minutes. The movie, well, it has a bunch of gore, but makes you wait until the very end to see a fraction of the action hinted at in the glorious preview. Prepare to spend almost two hours aimlessly wandering the deserts and trying to understand what Mickey Rourke is babbling on about as he tortures people and commands an army of soldiers that don’t seem to need food or water.

THE EXPENDABLES trailer is packed full of 80s action

We've been hearing about Sylvester Stallone's big 80s action return for a while, but now the trailer is finally here. The Expendables stars Stallone and a huge cast of action stars including Jet Li, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews, Steve Austin, and the immortal Dolph Lundgren. Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger also make short appearances in the film.

Watching the trailer, I can't help but feel nostalgic. Like the recently released Ninja Assassin, The Expendables seems to take pride in its ludicrous nature. Its villains are 80s stereotypes, its explosions are huge, and its premise is entirely unwarranted. It hits theaters August 13. Thanks to my friends at Filmonic for the link.
