A crafty nightclub owner (Jack) brings together a group of small time hoods and teams them up in unusual pairs (black man and white racist, Ivy Leaguer and simpleton) for a set of multiple heists which turn out to be an elaborate double cross against a notorious gangster (Dominic). During an extended standoff in a nightclub between Jack and his band of thieves and Dominic's henchman, the hoods discover why Jack brought them all together for what amounts to a suicidal mission.
A seedy nightclub owner recruits eight violent gangsters for an elaborate heist, but when they all begin to compare notes, they find they're pawns in a dangerous game of doublecross.
Dirty double-crossing Eric Roberts (as Jack) assembles four pairs of parolees - bald auto thief Joe Pantoliano (as Pete Tunnel) & recovering alcoholic Clarence Williams III (as Benny Hayes), long-haired gunman Kevin Bernhardt (as Billy Knox) & dim-witted arsonist Brian T. Finney (as George Daniels), shapely check forger Tia Carrere (as Gina Walker) & stand-up fraud Chris Rock (as Deke Anthony), yuppie druggie Kieran Mulroney (as Kerry DeVain) & statutory rapist William Forsythe (as Tim James) - who are ordered to rob gum-chewing godfather Tony Curtis (as Dominic) for his money, not his hair.
Played for low-budget laughs and mindless action, Brian Grant's "The Immortals" isn't as bad as you're thinking. Mr. Roberts and Mr. Curtis are inspired enemies. Mr. Rock gets in a few of his own good lines, though Mr. Finney's "George Daniels" (after Milton) walks away with the funniest performance thanks, in part, to co-star Bernhardt (who also scripted). The acting kudos probably should go to Mr. Williams' "Benny Hayes" (after Linc), who is most engaging. The dramatic "bigots learning to work together" (Pantoliano v. Blacks, Rock v. Asians, Forsythe v. Gays) subtext is appreciated, if not original.
**** The Immortals (10/5/95) Brian Grant, Kevin Bernhardt ~ Eric Roberts, Brian Finney, Tony Curtis, Clarence Williams III Another Tarantino wannabee failure. Why the movie industry insists on elevating Tarantino's mediocre movies with copycat films is perplexing. I mean, copying a copycat? This effort fails on several levels. Anytime a movie introduces a dozen characters all at once, character development is usually nonexistent, and indeed "The Immortals" has zero character development. Anytime you have a bare bones script, there is nothing else left but shootings, car chases, and explosions. "The Immortals" has plenty of these because the script is sorely underdeveloped. Eric Roberts is his usual quirky self, however the rest of the mostly no-name cast has nothing to do but look busy, and pick up a paycheck. - MERK ............. I don't know what movie "Melissa" (above review) was watching, but it obviously was not "The Immortals" . I am now dropping my rating to 1 (should be zero) to offset her obviously misinformed 10 rating). 646f9e108c
