Excerpt: 300: Rise of an Empire was the sequel that nobody wanted (myself included) but one that I was surprised to see wasn't panned when it was released. I'm a massive fan of the first one (I will never forget when I saw it at midnight in 2006 with a large group of friends) and didn't see any reason to do a sequel. Still, I was surprised with the generally positive reception this received (only slightly worse than the first) and had to blind-buy this 3D release.
Summary: Overall it is a very good sequel. However, there is a lot of moving back and forth from the present to the past. The graphics and special effects are great. The music does tend to override the actors voices in places and the volume has to be turned up to catch what they are saying. Surround sound might fix this problem. The Spartans do not have as much of a role in this sequel, so there is more ship to ship battles than there are land battles.
Summary: it was a very good action type movie with some side plots which fit into the background of why this war developed. my opinion was that it was a step above the original 300 movie. it is bloodie throughout the movie but that would be expected and accepted. it has a good flow to the story line and I would recommend (an have) to my friends.
Summary: I originally saw 300:rise of an empire in theatres. I finally bought it on a Blu-ray - DVD combo pack. this was an amazing addition to the first one. it had so much action, special effects and swordplay. I would recommend this great addition to anybody who saw and liked the first one.
