Ancient battles - souped up with 3-D special effects (for screens so equipped) - provide the thrust of director Tarsem Singh's ("The Cell") adventure.
Henry Cavill, who will be the next Superman (in the forthcoming "Man of Steel"), plays a hero who leads the charge against a power-hungry king (Mickey Rourke) bent on eliminating anyone in the way of his acquiring a weapon that will give him ultimate rule. Kellan Lutz ("Twilight"), Freida Pinto ("Slumdog Millionaire"), Stephen Dorff and John Hurt also appear. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; deleted scenes. *** (R: AS, GV) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
