By Darth Maciek TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This verdict contains SPOILERS.

This High Court finds the accused, producer and writer of this sequel to his own 2006 splendid masterpiece, guilty as charged of following crimes:

1. Being too lazy to direct this second film

2. Hiring a director who was an absolutely incompetent beginner

3. Being careless (or drunk?) to the point of writing a completely substandard BORING scenario

4. Endorsing abysmally bad actors for two main roles

5. Flashing ugly silicon breasts in public

6. Sending to the front Cersei Lannister, a middle aged mother of three, dressed in a dirty nightgown and armed with a rusty meat cleaver

7. Not only using napalm in V century BC but especially using it poorly...

8. Transforming Xerxes, the gigantic King of Kings, a monument of evil, corruption and depravation, into a pathetic sidekick

9. Showing the battle of Salamis, an apocalyptic clash of fleets and warriors on a scale defying imagination, as a s***ty little skirmish won by a cavalry charge (sic!)

10. Replacing a Bad@ss Leonidas by a Couldn't Care Less Themistocles, who has all the "maiestas, dignitas et gravitas" of an used condom, when the REAL Themistocles was a titan of politics, a genius of warfare, a monument of charisma and also a man of legendary oratory talent. He was in fact so honey-tongued that, in order to ensure the final victory in war, he actually managed to convince the assembly of Athenian citizens to abandon their own beautiful and rich city without fighting - when it was obvious that as result it will be plundered and burned to the ground by Persians...

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly satisfying 8 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray
The Battle of Salamis was supposed to be a naval battle. Not a heroic last stand at a mountain pass like the Battle of Thermopylae covered in 300. And a naval battle in ancient times meant no fancy cannons or ships of the line exchanging broadsides amidst clouds of billowing gunpowder smoke.

And yet, 7 years of waiting has paid off. 300: Rise of an Empire is thoroughly satisfying. The violence in this film makes you grin with glee from ear to ear despite considering yourself a seasoned veteran of gore films. 300: Rise of an Empire is also not just about the sea battle, but masterfully takes us through several flashbacks without jeopardizing the story and turning it into a mess. The film also leaves enough room to create several believable characters, most prominent of all the real historic female naval general Artemisia, wonderfully played by Eva Green. Green plays Artemisia with an authoritative aura that has warrior written all over it. Xerxes takes a back seat this time, but we do get a glimpse into his past and who the man once was.

At the end of the day, if you hadn't already come to this realization 7 years ago, you need to now: 300 is a work of art, not a historic movie. It is the film adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novels and thus sticks to the literature both in story and in art design. Hence the oversized moon. Hence the ridiculous blood splattering. When viewed in this context, it is almost impossible to find flaws in these two adaptations, as they masterfully bring the graphic novel to vibrant life.

4.0 out of 5 stars ECSTASY OF STEEL AND FLESH 16 Mar 2014
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
There is nothing like epic historical fantasy to piss-off the Iranians once again. This story starts at Marathon where Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) kills King Darius (Igal Naor) wearing a costume stolen from Emperor Ming. Darius' son Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) goes on to become a "god-king" and getting a minor role, while looking like the incarnate of evil. Persia has Artemis I of Caria (a pale Eva Green) lead the navy against Greece where Themistocles is attempting to unite the Greek city states to defeat the invading Persians. Sparta wants to go its own way. The 300 Spartans we get to see laying on the ground dead, post battle as Xerxes proclaims victory and moves on to Athens. I guess that was my bad expecting to see the 300 do battle and that whole thing about the goat path because someone put "300" in the title of the film.

This is the adult fantasy version of the story. There was plenty of slow motion blood splatter. They like the blood to land on the camera lens (or glass) and look suspended in the air for a while. The speeches given in the film were necessary for the production, but were completely boring. "Freedom is her wisdom has chosen you to defend her."

There is also both male and female narration because not everyone knows butchered Greek History. This film takes liberties with the accounts of Plutarch, Herodotus, and Polyaenus. For instance, Artemis I of Caria was actually Queen of Halicarnassus and only commanded five ships. Her character is greatly multiplied in this film.

Good popcorn film for adults. Nothing more.

Parental Guide: 2 F-bombs. Night time distant rape. sex. nudity (Eva Green )
