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.
Excerpt: As a big fan of the first 300 i was looking forward to this one. The story is part of the original 300 story but this time they consentate on the sea battle before and after the 300 spartan battle so its all interconnecte which i really liked. . the battle mainly takes place on the sea and looks as good as you would expect. . Eva green steals the show with her performance which makes me look forward to her in the forth coming sin city 2.
