Buy it... if nothing cranks up your testosterone levels like a beefy variation on the modern Hans Zimmer action sound, for Trevor Morris works surprisingly well within those boundaries to infuse some basic intelligence into an otherwise derivative formula.

Avoid it... if you were bothered by the lack of a clear narrative arc in the film's script, a failure reflected in totality by the absence of satisfying thematic attributions and storytelling capability in Morris' appropriately stylish music.

Immortals: (Trevor Morris) All the flashy colors, immense special effects, and painted abdominal muscles in the world make little difference to intellectual viewers if the story that accompanies them is pure crap. Fortunately for Relativity Media, intellectual viewers don't make up more than a small fraction of the movie-going public, and thus their 2011 eye candy spectacle, Immortals, earned over $200 million in gross returns. The concept of Greek Gods seems to have increased studio perceptions of their bankability, and the style of cult favorite 300 has merged with the Olympian legends to yield movies like Immortals, larger-than-life depictions of Gods at war as seen through striking color schemes and almost comic book-like violence. A battle between Hyperion and Olympus is the topic of Immortals, the former's quest for Ares' Epirus Bow fueled by a desire to use the weapon to unlock the Titans from Mount Tartarus and challenge Zeus and other famed Gods. The necessary tool with which the audience can identify in this plot is Theseus, who, despite his known lineage and destiny, is presented like the average underdog conscripted to fight in ways imagined by lifeless video game players aspiring for similar greatness with their console. A total lack of cohesion in its plot is what caused Immortals a poor reception from critics, its character establishments nonsensical and its tendency to kill major Gods somewhat limiting the practicality of its sequel potential. Nobody should be surprised that a lack of truly functional plot in this gorgeously rendered movie is reflected by a similar vacuous approach taken by composer Trevor Morris. One of the many assistants to graduate from Hans Zimmer's Remote Control production house, Morris found a career for himself in historical television epics, earning multiple Emmy awards for those endeavors. Those achievements are challenged with Immortals, Morris' debut on the big screen. It's somewhat disappointing to see the previous generation of Zimmer's crew typecast into genres like this one, and to casual observers (or those intellectuals described above), Morris won't have succeeded for Immortals any better than Ramin Djawadi did for the embarrassing Clash of the Titans in 2010. The enemy here is temp track emulation and the desire of filmmakers to slap around willing audiences with recapitulations of the sound that Zimmer, Inc. has already proven successful. You can hear Morris struggle to work within these expected parameters for this project, but ultimately the result is simply a slightly more intelligent repackaging of tired, increasing boring sounds.

NOTES AND QUOTES
The packaging of the CD release comes in the form of a folding slipcase that contains a handful of useless "trading cards" with pictures of characters, an advertisement card, and another card with the production credits for the score. The CD is "enhanced" and gives you a link to a video about the recording of the score and, more importantly, the music itself in 5.1 surround sound. Otherwise, the packaging contains no extra information about the score or film.
