When I originally saw trailers to this film, I was the least interested. The film looked cool but really nothing special. Well I was really pleasantly surprised as I really enjoyed it. It was shot beautifully with fantastic CG backdrops. The film was converted into 3D and really shines on its Blu-ray presentation. The image is absolutely crystal clear and really looks great in 3D. The audio packs an excellent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, in fact I had to turn down my speakers due to how impressive the sound was. To round up this fantastic release besides the 3D Blu-ray, this also includes a 2D Blu-ray and a digital copy.

This film follows Theseus (Henry Cavill), who is a villager that has been chosen by the gods to save mankind. After receiving a vision, the oracle Phaedra (Freida Pinto), finds out that Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) is on a mission to find the legendary Epirus Bow in order to defeat the gods. With the help of Phaedra, Theseus joins up with a group of warriors in order to find the bow, defeat Hyperion and save mankind.

The special features are impressive but nothing is found on the 3D disc. The first is called “It’s No Myth”, it is a short featurette on Greek myth. “Caravaggio Meets Fight Club – Tarsem’s Vision” is a 20 minute four-part behind the scenes look at the production. There is an alternate opening and two alternate endings for the film as well. The opening is called “Young Theseus” and runs about 12 minutes and focues on a young Theseus before he meets John Hurt’s character. The ending is called “This is Our Last Embrace” runs about 9 minutes. I actually prefer it, it includes an extended death of Hyperion and more battle from the film’s final scene. The other ending is alternate death for Hyperion. There are about eight each running about a minute. Lastly there is a comic feature called “Immortals: Gods and Heroes”, worth checking out.

Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) transports us in this epic tale of treachery, vengeance and destiny in Immortals, a stylish and visually spectacular 3D action adventure. As a power-hungry king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, a heroic young villager rises up against him in a thrilling quest as timeless as it is powerful.
The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army rampage across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission.

As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge his mother, who was killed in one of Hyperion’s brutal raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man’s future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final, desperate battle for the future of humanity. Immortals is produced by Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300) and Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter).
