Summary: 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.

Okay, so that is not all I'm going to say about this movie, but it most certainly sums it up.  I loved it, what a fantastic cast.  I did find myself telling the virgin oracle that she was blessed from the Gods as well on more than one occasion, although I do see her point that the ability of seeing the future would be a blessing and a curse.  I would not want that ability, to see what is going to happen and not be able to do anything to change it or fix it.....  I love Greek Mythology and mythological movies, stories, etc.  so I knew I was going to love this movie and I surely did. 

My husband said that the people were to "young" looking, as in from our time, and the Gods had the dumbest looking head gear.  It was so fake looking and by far they were the most ridiculous things I have ever seen.  Oh my lord, if you take all the costumes away, the movie was great.  I really didn't like the wardrobes of the Gods at all, but the actors did a great job in their roles, even looking as silly as they did.  And everyone else was wearing pants?  I'm pretty sure they didn't wear pants back in that time.  The concept behind the movie was pretty cool though.  There is a constant battle on Earth between good and evil, and if the Gods were really looking down upon us I'm sure they would have jumped in too.  They picked a good time to intervene.  Right on the brink of war between the Gods and the Titans, and the Gods were not all immortal. 

  Although my 11 year old would love this movie as much as I do, it is not appropriate for the young ones, there is too much fighting and the sex scene is too much in our opinion. 
Although this is from the producers of 300 the action was lacking a lot.  I was hoping for a lot more of it, but this movie was at a huge loss for action and excitement, but I did still enjoyed it.
  I love how they left the movie open at the end for another one....YEAH!!!  I will definitely be looking forward to getting my hands on that....lets hope it comes to be.

I give this movie 3 out of 4 thumbs up!
