Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield-on the sea-as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. “300: Rise of an Empire” pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemisia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy
- Great acting by the whole cast ,especially Eva Green who played the role of Artemisia .
- Interesting story-line ,that one can easily follow even if they haven’t watched the first 300 movie .
- intense action scenes
- There was an unnecessary love scene that had nothing to do with the plot of the movie
Themistocles: Better we show them, we chose to die on our feet, rather than live on our knees!
- Xerxes: I am your king!
- Artemisia: Do not forget who put the crown on your childish head! I will lead all my ships against Themistokles. Sit and watch from your golden throne, and enjoy the safety I provided you.
300:Rise of an Empire is a must watch movie . Whether you have watch the first 300 or not ,you will definitely enjoy this one . Lovers of action movies will really enjoy the excessive amounts of blood splattering in slow motion and naval battles brimming with grisly gore. It is action packed from beginning to end and has a great story-line . The whole cast was great , but Eva Green had the stand out performance . Her character, Artemisia, may go down as the best female villain ever .
