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.

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.

As soon as I told my husband I received this one to review he wanted to watch it right away and we did watch it on the night I got it. We both really enjoyed it and think it is very well done. I am not usually into this kind of movies and I was surprised at how much I liked this one. The  story was great and of course we loved the action in it. I loved the deleted scenes and the Behind The Scenes. I highly recommend this movie.

  1. I heard many things about this movie and wanted to wait until there were reviews before I see it. I have Blockbuster @Home, so I am going to use that to rent it. It must be a very popular movie because there is quite a wait for it. I may just head to the Blockbuster store and check out the Blu-Ray from there. I like having Blockbuster @Home because it gives me the option to stream different movies to my laptop or iPad anywhere I am even if I’m not at home, such as at DISH where I work or at school waiting for class to start. I love watching Greek mythology movies, and I am looking forward to seeing Immortals on Blu-Ray. I can’t wait to see this movie.
