the Greek general, “Themistokles” who is pitted against invading Persian Forces that’s ruled by
the god king Xerxes” and led by the very, very vengeful Artemisia, who’s stunning performance is
played by “Eva Green” this woman has some stunning eyes that will pierce right through you,
what a display of “Acting from her, who stole the show in my mind, actually, I actually though this
would’ve been more on a softer side then went to mayhem, I hate saying this, the last one was all
mayhem, so they give us more, some how I think they were more advance in sharping their weapons
than we were, I don’t know how hard it is to cut someone limbs, or want to know, but they did it, not
once not twice, but multiple times, the only guy that comes close to a sharp knife is “Ron Popeil” but
he use his for legal uses, Eva Green” gets Three for her performance alone”

This sequel jumps back and forward in time to give the audience a proper perspective of how Leonidas' and the 300 Spartans deaths related to the Athenians and the Persians at the Battle of Salamis. Eva Green, who is everywhere nowadays (and apparently has to do at least one topless scene per movie -- not that I'm complaining), plays a vicious Naval Commander for the God-King, Xerxes, and gives the best performance of the cast, and most of the memorable scenes. The Greek hero of the film, Themistocles, is played by Sullivan Stapleton (one of many relatively new faces in lead roles), who has hit the gym and practiced his angry face in the mirror, but lacks the charisma of Gerard Butler.
The fact that the movie was rushed to screens before Frank Miller could finish the graphic novel it is based on was not a good sign. The fact that Zach Snyder decided to hand off directing chores to someone else and stick to producing was not a good sign. I was afraid that this movie would fail completely for those reasons; without the distinctive vision of Frank Miller and Zach Snyder, all you have is a historical drama straight out of Herodotus. I would be fine with that, actually, but this is the follow-up to 300, and people expect something electrifying.Read more ›
For anyone who has seen the first 300 movie, the style and cinematography is the same. Fast action movie, filled with focused slow motion moments to emphasize how cool the fight scenes are.
The acting was also very well done, and this movie certainly has a lot more "acting" than the first. Eva Green was absolutely phenomenal in her role, and by the end of the movie I wasn't sure if I was cheering for the hero any more, or if I wanted Eva Green's character to win.
The script was also very well done, but I expected as much since I found the soliloquy's of the first movie impressive and were used to set the mood of the movie. This movie did the exact same thing.
The graphics were great, a feel of surrealism mixed with reality.
One thing I did like about this movie is that it stepped back and didn't have any of the "fantasy" elements of the first one. What I mean by this is that this first movie had some of the enemies with what could only be seen as fantastical powers. This movie had none of that, and even though I love fantasy movies, I like the 300 movies to focus more on people.
I watched the movie in 3D, and I am not quite sure what the necessity was in making in 3D. There were no moments of "it looks so cool/so much more real because it is popping out at me". Looking back, I would have been just as content watching this in 2D. However, I saw it in the theatre, and 3D there is not as good as 3D on my home TV, so I want to watch it again on that instead.
Overall, I think this is an excellent movie, and that you should most definitely go watch it.

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 )

3D seems to be here to stay and since \I have a 3D tv I am more than happy to take advantage of the media. Read morePublished 4 months ago by reallybigmeandog
A nice follow up to 300. Lots of blood, guts, and gore. Just turn off your brain and enjoy. It's eye candy with a lot of over the top acting thrown in. A worthy follow up.Published 4 months ago by Rico Khan
