300: Rise of an Empire 3D

Follow up to Zack Snyder's 300, taking place before, during and after the events of the 2007 original. The action heads to the seas and the Battle of Artemisium, in which Greek ships commanded by general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) take on the might of invading Persian forces, led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and Artemisia (Eva Green).

Noam Murro takes over directorial duties, adapting the graphic novel by Frank Miller (Sin City).

This highly entertaining time-filler lacks the mythic resonances that made "300" feel like an instant classic, but works surprisingly well.

It's flesh and carnage that the audience is here to see, and Murro delivers it by the glistening ton.

The naval collisions and melees play out in panel-like renderings that are bold and satisfying... but lack the momentum and bombastic je ne sais quoi of "300."

Both bloody and dull, even if camply entertaining.

The foot-in-mouth direlogue is an Achilles’ heel, but this campy gore-opera is bursting with guilty pleasures.

300: Rise of an Empire

Another loud, dumb, action-packed gore-fest. 300: Rise of an Empire should please fans of the original. All the battle scenes are in slow-motion. It's just more of the same. That being said, I did have a bit of fun with this. Evan Green's gives a great performance as Artemisia, the Greek mortal-turned-god leader of the Persian army. For the few scenes she...

Hard fought but brutal sequal

It was always going to be hard to top or even match the first 300. There is a return of a few very key and influential characters from the first movie who tie in well with this story that seems to almost run side by side with the original. An interesting take sending the battle to the sea. We are introduced to a female character (Artemesia) that is all as...
