Immortals Movie revieww: To watch or Not to watch

Immortals
"Aeons after the Gods won their struggle against the Titans, a new evil emerges. Power-crazy King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) declares war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion scorches Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. He who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros and hungers for revenge. In the king's hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods but ancient law says the Gods cannot intervene in man's conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) emerges. Chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders - including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff) - he will not stand to watch his homeland fall to ruin."

My take on this?
DON'T WATCH. It's not worth the money,really. I would rate it 2 stars against 5. I would evenn rate it 1.5 even,but I would give credits for the elaborate costumes and good acting by seasoned actors. It started out normal,that Theseus and his mother was ostracized by fellow villagers. Until the war came where King Hyperion in his search for the Epirus Bow to unleash the Titans to avenge his sick family members (which was not even showed in the film,only him and his blood-thirst search),Theseus help to fight in the war. Too much blood,too little prowess showed by the Gods. Plus,

All the Gods were killed except for Zeus. His beautiful/chio daughter also kena slaughtered by the Titans. Aiya,not nice to watch one. Really. If I'm not wrong about the God,Aries was killed by his own father Zeus because he disobeyed the celestial law.

Too gore-y also. Too many poke-your-eyeballs, roast-you-alive, scratch-your-face, stab/punch-your-balls-until-you-no-father's-day scenes. Not nice,really. Distasteful. As compared to 300,this is 200x worse.

Yea, I watched. Not really nice indeed. The story line was so so only. I only saw Theseus use the bow once and that's it. Zues brought back his daughter's corpse and left the rest of his son's corpse there. (Very bias)
