'Immortals' definitely delivers the fiercely pitched battle scenes you expect from an action epic, but if you think the carnage is on par with '300' or 'Gladiator,' think again. Director Tarsem Singh cheerfully explained his stance on screen violence to Moviefone and admitted his goal is to make audiences uncomfortable. Remember the scene in 'The Cell' where Vincent D'Onofrio unspools a victim's intestines?

Spoilers ahead as we discuss the more gruesome scenes in 'Immortals.'
