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.

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.Read more ›
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)
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.Read more ›
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.

I love these warrior movies / battles and this really is excellent.
The fake computer generated blood spatter is really good.

Nowhere as good as the original 300 with Gerard Butler. It seemed that the director went a bit over the top with the FX team in producing blood curdling scenes although the younger... Read morePublished 25 days ago by Barry Robert Coutts
