The year is 2095 and the ancient Egyptian gods have returned to Earth to cast judgment on the falcon-headed god Horus in this epic fantasy from comic-book creator Enki Bilal. Given only one week by the gods to preserve his immortality, Horus must search New York City and find both a human host whose body he will inhabit and a willing mate to continue his legacy. As the enormous pyramid of the gods looms ominously over Manhattan, a beautiful and mysterious young woman named Jill wanders the streets in search of her true identity. With striking blue hair to match the azure tears that stream down her cheeks, Jill is joined in her search by a doctor determined to help her unlock her true power. In the Immortal world, reality is limited only by imagination, and the futuristic city is inhabited by creatures never conceived in even your wildest dreams. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
My husband and I rented this becuase the synopsis sounded interesting and it looked like a cool movie. We were so wrong. The story makes no sense and goes nowhere. I really didn't like that all but a handfull of characters are CGI - bad CGI. I have video games with better graphics than this movie. I kept waiting for the movie to explain itself and it NEVER does. It was such a waste which sucks becasue it had the potential to be so cool.
A visually stunning film. If you are looking for your garden variety "Friday night date movie", this isn't it. But, if you are looking for an imaginative and intense look into the future then grab this one! In the vein of Blade Runner, iRobot, and The Fifth Element, the creators of this movie successfully blend CGI and live action into a beautiful and thought provoking movie to watch!
I has been said-this one is not for everyone. If you like sci-fi, animation, art, and certainly comics you would enjoy it. Not all the answers are provided - hear the questions and then use your brain and imagination to find the answers! (Somewhat similar in style to "Akira", "Heavy Metal 2000", "Blade Runner" ...)
