As a Frank Miller fan from way back, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's adaptation of Sin City was thrilling to watch as the pages and panels found their way to the screen, and 'adaptation' meant something different the day after it opened. Zach Snyder continued with 300 what Sin City started, using not just Miller's story, but his heavily stylized chiaroscuro artwork and Lynn Varley's painted colors to create a blood-drenched realization that perfectly interpreted his vision of Thermopylae.

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, even though I heard many reviews and friends saying how much they didn't like it.

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.

Should you buy?

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 )
