  1.  awful transfer - stick with DVD!

    Posted: 

    Im not going to review the film itself,,we all know how very good it is. The blu ray transfer are simply the poorest I have ever seen.28 days later's transfer is simply awful. The transfer makes the film look like a cheap, awful B movie from the 70's.Blurred,very grainy. I then put on the normal DVD of the film, and it actually looked better!
    I own film films 50 years plus old, with far better tranfers. Advice - stick to your normal DVD copies, as the upgrade on your blu ray players is far better to watrch than this.

  2.  1 star for blu ray transfer, 5 stars for the films.

    28 weeks later was better, but very slightly. nothing about the transfer was outstanding. I own film films 50 years plus old, with far better tranfers than thing. Advice - stick to your normal DVD copies, as the upgrade on your blu ray players is far better to watrch than this.

    i usully like this kind of stuff.but immortals is basically a poor man's 300. awful script, stupid costumes, ham acting,and over use of CGI that's basically in your face,this has to be one of the worst films I have seen.avoid.

  4.  2 hours ill never get back.

    Unimaginative,predictable story, with a horrible,constant soundtrack (trying to copy the soundtrack of batman - the dark knight rises,but failing). And Ray Winestone - playing...Ray winestone. A 2D actor,cast along with Ben (Plan B) Drew,who quite frankly cant act for toffee.He should stick to singing. Im really surprised a good actor such as Damian Lewis has agreed to star in this rubbish. Oh,and if you want to be put off your food,there are a few scenes of Winestone,when he isn't looking as though he is going to go into cardiac arrest in action scenes, having a couple of 'sex scenes', being all sweaty,with his gut out,in his underpants.Yep,nauseating.

  5.  all that glitters isnt gold.

    A visual treat,great effects. Its a shame its let down by such a slow,plodding,mundane story.I kept watching it hoping that it would pick up,and I would know what the hell it was about.Then it ended,and I was none the wiser. Don't bother wasting your money on this.

  6.  So-so drama.

    Posted: 

    I only watched this recently,and although it had its good points (some of the acting was well done) there were a few issues for me.Firstly,the accents.Majority of the actors decide to use clipped upper class English,although a fvew do decide to have German accents.The Scottish Carlyle,for some reason,has decided to do his best Ross Kemp impression. Then there is Peter o'Toole's ridiculous padded suits,to make him,and failing,to look like the chubby President Hindenburg.Then there is Robert Carlyle himself.His performnce (dodgy accent aside) is quite good.The problem with him,is he looks nothing like Hitler,despite the bog standard theatrical bog standard glued on tash.In fact,he always likes like he could do with being fed a bit more,to plump him up a little. (in some scenes,he looks like a boy dressing up in his dad's suits). Certainly not a bad drama, but there are better.

  7.  A so-so and predicable film.

    Posted: 

    After a fairly amusing begining,this film goes off the boil pretty quickly.After getting the gist,i couldnt be bothered,so ended up fast forward,just to confirm the very predictable end.Also, the CGI of the 'bonies' was laughable,and amatuer.

  8.  Hasnt aged well.

    Loved this film as a kid,so was looking forward to seeing it again,and in HD.Have to say, im a bit disappointed.The blu ray transfer is simply awful. No doubt better than the normal DVD version, but i cant imagine by much.The film is very heavy on grain,and some scenes just look 'dirty'.Aparently the Britsh studio wasnted to create a version of 'where Eagles Dare.Unfortunetly,it comes across as a poor cousin.

  9.  Time for a rest,then reboot for this series.

    Posted: 

    This game illustrates that both COD and MOH are tired series,and need to be rested.The formual is the same old,same old.Nothing new here.Boredom quicklt sets in.Time to be rested,then prehaps rebooted,prehaps back to world war 2, but with themes like tvs band of brothers,the pacific etc.All i know, is,after playing this,something needs to be changed.

  10.  waste of time.

    AFter seeing the trailer a while ago,i was really looking forward to this.How disappointing. The film is dull,with a couple of chuckle moments (near the begining).What then happens,is the showing of 2 unlikable characters,who are just plain weird, setting off on a very dull adventure.As tghe film wentt on, i disliked them more and more.The writing is ok, but i couldnt find any empathy or sympathy for the 2 main characters,and had to watch this film in a few installments,in the hope it got better.It didnt.
