Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, continue to amass victories over Rome. With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic. Following Ashur s death, Naevia and Crixus fight as one. Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war with Rome.
The Roman Senate turns to Marcus Crassus, a wealthy, strategic politician, for aid. He respects his opponent and refuses to make the same mistakes Glaber and his predecessors have. With a young and fiercely competitive Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus is determined to crush Spartacus and his rebellion.
The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, Spartacus: War of the Damned will unleash a battle unlike anything ever seen before.

The first we saw of Spartacus was the long-haired Thracian who became Capua's greatest champion. Andy Whitfield was perfect for the role; the kind-faced, big-hearted man who was full of such bubbling rage come the end of the series. There was sex, violence, a little more violence, plenty of political intrigue, more sex, more violence, some wonderfully-created characters and most importantly of all, a killer script.
When Whitfield's health declined, a prequel series aired, starring Dustin Clare as Gannicus; the greatest champion that the ludus of Batiatus had possibly ever produced earning his freedom - and title as a "God" amongst gladiators - on the sands of the new arena.
Both seasons were quite frankly magnificent. The casting was superb, and the writing was even better. But the sad news came that Andy Whitfield had tragically passed away, and there was the need for a new Spartacus to be cast. Enter the relatively unknown Liam McIntyre; at first a little wooden, but he soon grew into the role. He portrayed a different Spartacus; a man so utterly hell-bent on spilling Roman blood that he seemed unrecognisable from Whitfield's earlier portrayal.
And so McIntyre lead an ensemble cast in the third series; Vengeance. It was Blood and Sand on a wider scale - there was even more violence, even more sex, and this time we saw countless battle-royales between Spartacus' rebels and the hired mercenary gladiators under the scheming Syrian Ashur.Read more ›
My reservations were confirmed this release has no extra or subtitles.
I would imagine many customers expect a decent amount of extra content to justify a Blu Ray purchase not to mention the inclusion of subtitles for the hearing impaired.To be quite honest it is a scandal in this day and age to leave out such a basic feature.
Anyhow I wanted to make people aware before they purchase this that the US release will have deleted scenes,interviews and audio commentary.Although there is no release date yet I would suggest sometime before or during September as Vengeance was.
Ultimately this is a lazy cash grab by Anchor who couldn't even wait to include the special features before releasing this.
This 2013 final [3rd] season sees the historical figure of Spartacus [Andy Whitfield], a Thracian gladiator who led a slave uprising against the Roman Republic, having left Vesuvius getting holed up in southern Italy. Here the tensions between former slaves and roman comes to a head amidst the usual threats of treachery and deceit, while a determined Crassus seeks to defeat Spartacus in combat.
Historical accuracy is even more lax in this as historical figures are moved through time and space to be mentioned and depicted here. Unfortunately the sex scenes also tend to be overlong, giving more of a late night soft porn feel to everything.
The ten 50 minute episodes are spread over four discs but there are no added features only play, scene selection and audio [2.0 default, but use 5.1 if you can]. Rated 18 this is more an X certificate featuring decapitations, graphic slaughter, nudity [including male & female full frontal] and swearing throughout. If you can look past the blood, gore and sex, it’s a story of friendships and betrayal but above all racial and social intolerance. Despite the flaws and slower start, it remains entertaining and still holds a ***** rating really picking up in the final half.
Little truth is known about Spartacus ("...history is written by winners....") nor his life. However, this collection follows a little more closely what IS known of him. Unlike the Kirk Douglas film version, Spartacus did not die nailed to a cross, it was thought that he died in the final battle against the Romans, perhaps not quite as depicted in this series...but this is much closer to the truth.
Ok, I accept that some viewers may be put off by the 'graphic novel style' blood letting and the language often leaves much to be desired. I can't believe noble Romans went around 'effing and blinding' all the time, but modern TV writers keep trying to push back the boundaries of acceptable TV (for example, the oft-used "C" word once a real no-no).
Despite all of this, I really enjoyed all 4 of the series to the point where, having watched all 4, immediately after finishing this final series, I am going through them all again.
Very highly recommended (but not for those of a squeamish disposition). A most definite 5 star rating
