Critics have panned it, but fans love it. Box office hit, Immortals brought in an unexpected $32 million over the weekend.
Critics said the film was confusing. "Nothing more than 300 with 3d," wrote a critic on CNN.
Yet, reviewers on rotten tomatoes, however seemed much more enthusiastic. "The CGI is rendered with imaginative care," wrote one reviewer.
The film's popularity yet lack of narrative are not a concern for audience members. And reviewers even go to great lengths to explain that a lack of narrative is acceptable in the face of such outstanding CGI.
"I didn't go to Immortals expecting to see an Oscar epic," wrote the reviewer. "I went be entertained."
Audience members continue to pore into movies and pay higher prices for 3d movies.
