Immortals Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: Immortals explodes off the screen with action-packed battles, mythological adventure and an all-star cast. In this epic tale of vengeance and destiny, power-mad King Hyperion (Mickey 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 (Henry 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 (Freida Pinto), Theseus embraces his destiny and leads a fierce band of warriors in a desperate fight for the future of mankind.

Review: Immortals is another in a line of recent films that are loosely based on Greek mythology.  This one is full of action, gore and blood and some of the coolest battle scenes I've seen in a film since 300.  This one is a nice mixture of Clash of the Titans and 300, but the action takes it a step further, with the gods even getting into the battle action!  This one is a must-see for any fantasy adventure fan.

The special features on this blu-ray set include: Disc 1: Theatrical Feature Blu-ray, It's No Myth, Caravaggio Meets Fight Club: Tarsem's Vision, Alternate Opening: Young Theseus, Alternate Ending: This Is Our Last Embrace, Alternate Ending: Theseus Kills Hyperion, Deleted Scenes, Immortals: Gods & Heroes published by Archaia Entertainment, Theatrical Trailer, Sneak Peek and Disc 2: Digital Copy.
