Immortals on 3D Blu-ray Combo, Blu-ray and DVD March 6th


Featuring Alternate Beginning and Endings Visually-Striking Film Explodes on 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Triple Play and DVD March 6

One brave warrior, touched by the gods, must overcome all odds to save mankind from a merciless and powerful tyrant when IMMORTALS comes to Blu-ray and DVD on March 6th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by visionary filmmaker Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and written by Charles Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides, the home entertainment release is chock-full of must-see bonus features including an alternate beginning, two alternate endings, deleted scenes and an amazing graphic novel, creating the ultimate viewing experience.  

From the producers of 300, Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari, and Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, IMMORTALS explodes off the screen with action-packed battles, mythological adventure and an all-star cast including: Henry Cavill (Superman: Man of Steel), Luke Evans (Robin Hood), Kellan Lutz (Twilight), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies), John Hurt (Hellboy) and Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2). In this epic tale of vengeance and destiny, power-mad King Hyperion (Rourke) threatens to destroy all of humanity on his maniacal quest to obtain the ultimate weapon – the legendary Epirus Bow that gives the power to unleash war on both Heaven and Earth.  But Theseus (Cavill), a heroic young villager chosen by the gods, rises up to stop Hyperion’s brutal rampage.  With supernatural help from the beautiful oracle Phaedra (Pinto), Theseus embraces his destiny and leads a fierce band of warriors in a desperate fight for the future of mankind.

IMMORTALS is available on Blu-ray and DVD on March 6th and was theatrically-released by Relativity Media on November 11, 2011.

The 411 by Maria 
OK..this was the second time I saw The Immortals and the second time was much better.  The first time, we said, before we comment, we should see it again!

Theseus played by Cavill is his mother's son. He will do what he can to protect her but when she is cut down right in front of him, he takes revenge and do what he can to stop King Hyperion played by Mickey Rourke. Chosen by the Gods to stop the powerful, evil, bloodthirsty Hyperion who is on a mission to be the most powerful of all the world. Hyperion seeks the Bow of Epirus which will allow him to overthrow the Gods of Olympus. The Gods are not to interfere with man but do.  The future of humanity will be dependent on Theseus according to the Oracle Phaedra who is played by the stunning (Freida Pinto).  

Well, lets see where to begin. Personally, I wasn't bored. It just never went were I wanted it to go.  The fight scenes the few that there are were nicely choreographed, the death scenes not overly bloody.  Since it was the producers of 300, I was expecting, some great fight scenes, memorable dialogue and some beefcake. Well, I got the beefcake, the fight scenes didn't have me oohhhing and the dialogue, well, not much to report. Nothing stuck with me.

Everything was either under or over acted but I did love Mickey Rourke's voice. He is totally the evil villain and his costumes cracked me up especially the Venus fly trap looking helmet. 

I was excited to see Kellen Lutz, (Emmett Cullen from Twilight) but he looked like a way too gay Greek God with his golden ear muffs.

The only scenes I remember was the less than lusty sex scene with the Oracle and Theseus, oh and the scene where she gives him water from her mouth. My husband and I both cringed. 
On another note, I had no idea Greece was so cliffy. 

If you like Greek History, bloody fight scenes, hunky men with contoured abs, this is for you.
