Director Noam Murro’s 300:Rise Of An Empire is a non-stop kill-fest that will be enjoyed only by fans of the initial 300, those who love the most violent action thrillers and students of battle tactics.
To its credit, the movie is better than the initial film, it gives a clear and concise understanding of the history of the age, the effects are strong and, best of all, it has Eva Green and Lena Headey.
In this movie, it’s the women who are of most interest. Eva play Artemisia, the wicked admiral of the Persian fleet, and Lena plays Queen Gorgo, the vengeful wife of Leonidas, who died at Thermopylae in the initial film. The male players are only interesting, when they wear their helmets and can’t be recognized.
For the fan base, 300:Rise Of An Empire gets a 3+ out of 5.
