I really regret buying this movie. Maybe worth 1% of the first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Entertaining Action Movie Aug. 5 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Oops!!! I made a mistake. Yesterday I wrote a review for this movie but I attributed the review to the movie 300. So, here is the review that should have been assigned to this movie.
The 3D version was a superb technological accomplishment. Of course, the historical veracity of the narrative was flawed but the final point of the movie was accomplished: a stunning visual and highly entertaining product. Even Eva Green's overacting blended in well with the movie's purpose. I believe that it would be difficult to find a better action movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Rudderless Ship at the Battle of Salamis June 22 2014
By Corey Lidster TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun to watch March 16 2014
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good action movie Sept. 2 2014
Good action movie from the coat tails of the original. Not sure why there is dust and hair floatimg around inside the greek homes. Must be a 3D thing.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Interesting idea of a prequel/sequel, very action packed like the first; lots of dynamic scenes. Almost worth buying(even though I did).

Very poor effort. There is plenty of CGI blood and mayhem, but poor acting and direction. Do not waste your time on this one.
