    Synopsis


    Alexander
    The fourth film to chronicle the life of fourth-century B.C. ruler Alexander the Great, Oliver Stone's Alexander stars Colin Farrell as the titular Macedonian conqueror. The film follows the young king as he leads his forces on a bloody empirical conquest across the known world, taking large parts of Asia and the Middle East to amass a giant empire, all by the time he turned 25. Anthony Hopkins co-stars as Ptolemy I along with Rosario Dawson as Roxane, Angelina Jolie as Olympias, Jared Leto as Hephaistion, Val Kilmer as King Philip II, and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as Cassander. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    Troy
    Homer's sprawling tale of love and war in ancient Greece comes to the screen in all its grandeur in this epic-scale adventure. In 1193 B.C., Paris, Prince of Troy (Orlando Bloom), has fallen in love; however, the beautiful woman who has beguiled him is Helen, Queen of Sparta (Diane Kruger), who is wed to King Menelaus (Brendan Gleeson). While Helen is hardly immune to Paris' charms, this doesn't blunt Menelaus' fury when Paris steals her away from him. Menelaus' brother Agamemnon (Brian Cox), the power-hungry king of the Mycenaeans, is eager to expand his empire through Troy to the lands of the Aegean Sea, and he uses Paris' romantic slight against Menelaus as an excuse to wage an all-out war against the great walled city. Priam, King of Troy (Peter O'Toole), summons his armies, led by Prince Hector (Eric Bana), to meet the onslaught of Agamemnon's forces, but while the great city has yet to yield in a battle, Agamemnon has a formidable ally -- Achilles (Brad Pitt), a mighty and seemingly unstoppable warrior whose presence could tip the scales in Agamemnon's favor. Sean Bean, Julie Christie, Saffron Burrows, and Rose Byrne highlight the film's supporting cast. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    300
    Sin City author Frank Miller's sweeping take on the historic Battle of Thermopylae comes to the screen courtesy of Dawn of the Dead director Zack Snyder. Gerard Butler stars as Spartan King Leonidas and Lena Headey plays Queen Gorgo. The massive army of the Persian Empire is sweeping across the globe, crushing every force that dares stand in its path. When a Persian envoy arrives in Sparta offering King Leonidas power over all of Greece if he will only bow to the will of the all powerful Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), the strong-willed leader assembles a small army comprised of his empire's best fighters and marches off to battle. Though they have virtually no hope of defeating Xerxes' intimidating battalion, Leonidas' men soldier on, intent on letting it be known they will bow to no man but their king. Meanwhile, back in Sparta, the loyal Queen Gorgo attempts to convince both the skeptical council and the devious Theron (Dominic West) to send more troops despite the fact that many view Leonidas' unsanctioned war march as a serious transgression. As Xerxes' fearsome "immortals" draw near, a few noble Greeks vow to assist the Spartans on the battlefield. When King Leonidas and his 300 Spartan warriors fell to the overwhelming Persian army at the Battle of Thermopylae, the fearless actions of the noble fighters inspired all of Greece to stand up against their Persian enemy and wage the battle that would ultimately give birth to the modern concept of democracy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I always wanted to see Stone's extended version of Alexander and the Director's cut version of Troy. I was waiting patiently for those two movies to come down in price to buy. But Hey! Both extended versions of those movies and 300 thrown in to boot for $15 - that's a bargain in anyone's book. Alexander is still a bit of a mess of a fim, but it's a visual masterpiece that looks amazing on Blu-ray. The more you watch it the more it grows on you. Troy looks the best of the bunch though and I have to say I enjoyed it more watching it the second time. I was never a big fan of 300 but it still looks cool even though it's kind of lost it's shine a little over the last few years. This is a 4 disc set with Alexander split onto 2 discs. This set is a steal for $15!

      This is a three movie compilation: 300, Troy, and Alexander Revisited. I do like the first two films on the list. I feel that 300 is the strongest out of the bunch. Apparently the producers felt the same way because they recently released a sequel: 300 Rise of an Empire. Troy is, well, Troy. And Alexander Revisited is probably the most ambitious flob I've seen in a very long time. This movie has the potential of being an A+ film instead of giving us a movie we get a disjointed travel back and forth across Alexander's time stream. Doctor Who would have gotten lost with all of the time jumps between scenes. If it weren't for Alexander Revisited I would have given this collection 5 stars.

      To get three movies on one blu-ray package at the price it was selling for was really a great deal, especially if you like all three movies. Personally, I was only interested in two of the movies, but it was still a good buy because had I bought the two blu-rays separately, it would have cost about the same or more as the three movie disc packaging.

      Purchased at a bargain deal. Three movies all in one. I watched the 300 and Troy prior and liked both movies and this gave me an opportunity to watch Alexander Revisited. Its a very long movie but being based on most actual events I couldn't see having it any shorter than what it was. I was able to learn a little about history at the same time.

      not BLU RAY quality

      I'm a regular blu ray user and experience great quality when renting through redbox, netflix. This 300 has too many visible pixels and was grainy. I suspect the up conversion was poorly done. I googled this issue and found that each blu ray development is done with differently quality results.

      This is a great collection if you didn't already own any of these individually. These movies are not the best nor the worst individually . Together it's a pretty solid collection

      Excellent bundle. Whoever selected these 3 movies to be in a single collection has a very good view on the similarities and uniqueness of the story, characters, sequences and most importantly the visually exciting features
