Product Description

Product Description

Sullivan Stapleton, Rodrigo Santoro and Eva Green star in this action film based on Frank Miller's graphic novel 'Xerxes' and set before, during and after the events of '300' (2006). In 480 BC, Athenian General Themistocles (Stapleton) leads the Greek Army in a war against the invasion of King Xerxes I (Santoro), naval commander Artemisia (Green) and their Persian forces. Themistocles allies with the Spartans but they are still outnumbered by Xerxes' men. Who will be victorious? The film was co-written by Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad and also stars Lena Headey, Jack O'Connell and Hans Matheson.

Format: DVD
When the likes of 300 utilise innovative filming techniques it is really difficult to trump the original in a sequel, and I feel this may be the reason why Rise Of An Empire draws somewhat mixed reviews. The movie is full of action, well acted and has a reasonable continuity from 300. As a piece of action entertainment it works and if you enjoyed the original you should like the second instalment.

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.

A masterpiece of CGI which was made in the same style as its predecessor, '300', the battle of thermopylae. This one culminated in the sea battle of Salamis. Both films were made in the style of Frank Miller's graphic novels, or comic books. The dramatic effect is quite startling and exciting but there was an over-emphasis on the blood and guts rather more than had been the case with '300'. Entertaining but somewhat repetitive.

VIDEO (2D):

300: Rise of an Empire arrives onto blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC (27.51 Mbps) 1080p 2.40:1 encode. The transfer is a first-rate stunner, with an exceedingly refined image faithful to Murro and DP Simon Duggan's blood-soaked vision and flawless even in the face of the film's most frenetic action scenes. Colours are desaturated and stylized as intended, with opulent golds, sun-bathed ambers, stormy blues, visceral reds and deep, inky blacks. Contrast remains vibrant throughout. Edges are razor sharp. This transfer litters the screen with every juicy, bloody detail: drops of sweat glisten with shocking clarity, distinctive individual wrinkles on the faces of the cast, also exposing pores and the tiniest blemish on their lifelike complexions. (5/5)

VIDEO (3D):

300: Rise of an Empire 3D arrives onto blu-ray with MPEG-4 MVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. Though converted in post, the resulting 3D experience is beautifully realized, with a proficient picture backed by absorbing depth and convincing dimensionality. Foreground objects pop, background elements retreat naturally into the distance, and the Athenian and Persian ships exist believably in a spatially sound ocean-scape. Arterial eruptions spray outward. Sword tips all but pierce the fourth wall. In 3D, the film seems even deadlier. (4.5/5)

AUDIO (2D & 3D):

Similarly, the DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio lossless track is also first-class. Right from the start, as stone-like doors open to reveal the ending of the first movie, the track impresses with a deliberate design that commences subtly in the center and gradually widens, slowly spreading to the sides and rears before slamming with a deep, hard bass note.

This dvd was ok. But I prefer the first 300 film. (2006 with Gerard Butler in leading roll.) I would have sooner watched that one again. More action. This new 're-make', if I can call it that (? ) made me sea sick. Its ok if you prefer navy battles. I certainly would not watch it again.

I give it 4 stars because the acting is at times wooden. It is a violent and graphically so as you would expect from it's predecessor. But as someone else said , the film is a work of art. The photography is superb majestic; the lighting wonderful. The battle scenes are perfectly choreographed and the blood flies poetically ( though occasionally clearly superimposed. ).
The plot is solid as are the characters - partlicularly Artedes - are well framed ( though what happens when the mortal enemies meet - a fight to the death ? - they .... er....get naked.......)
A sequel better than the original.
