TheRiisingSun: When this movie comes out someone has to make a fan edited version of both
of them merged! That would indeed be quite awesome!
Sean Willets: 300 and 300 Rise of an empire mash-up movie!! that idea is the BEST!
JWUniverse: Great review Jeremy I enjoyed the movie but for me it's not that
re-watchable so I gave it a C.
Daniel Mcfly: 300: Rise of an Empire was bloody awesome but all thanks to the
performance of Eva Green and her supply of army resources that kept the
green screen going despite the tons of fake blood it was pretty cool.
mrgeetah: My major issue with the movie was that none of it made any goddamn sense.
Like, why did Sparta have a navy? Sparta is entirely landlocked. Sparta
had no reason for a navy and they didn't give a crap about naval warfare.
Athens, on the other hand, had the best navy in the world at the time. And
they spent the entire movie pining for the Spartans? Bullcrap.
I also hated how they left out the cool crap that ACTUALLY happened for
fake not-as-cool crap. Artemisia is famous for tricking the Greeks into
not pursuing her by attacking one of her own allies, thus throwing the
Greeks off their guard. And the Battle of Marathon is an example of one of
the most genius military maneuvers of all time, by the general Miltiades.
NOT some random asshole named Themistocles somehow finding a longbow on the
battlefield (bows at the time had a range of 50 meters, tops) and getting a
good shot at the enemy general.
Chief Godstaff: 300: Rise of an Empire was such an incomplete movie. Millions of dollars
and they cant end the movie properly.
greymushroom1: I agree, it was better than expected. I didn't like the ending as much. I
don't know, her death was too quick?
betheothergirl: I'm hearing everything from this is a good movie if you go in for action
and fighting and sex. Alternatively I hear that it lacks sorely in plot, is
sexist and racist, and fails to live up to the action and such of the first
I've yet to come to an in between review.
snipe jones: So this movie is not the sequel of 300, like tokyo drift is not the 3rd
installment of Fast&Furious? Bottom line the movie 300 is not in
chronological order, bottom line it's gonna suck!
Tori Solis: Jeremy's review was so much better then SourceFed's review haha
alehodr: the story of the 300 and temistocles and crap, really happend is not
something that this guys invent, ok is a movie, but based in history
Ivan Ruiz: Mash up would be awesome! I did want to see a bit of the end when
**SPOILERS** the Spartans showed... I was like "ohhhh yeaaah!" but then it
JeremyCuddles: I freaking hated all the slow mo, I don't hate slow mo in general. But when
it's overused it makes me mad. There were parts where dudes were rowing (?)
the boat in freaking slow mo. Seriously, had to slow mo Rowing? Kind of
dragged out the movie for me. 45 minute movie turned 90 or whatever via
slow mo bothers me.
The_One_Who_Breakfasts: Hey Jahns! I'm pretty sure we didn't forget about a Sherlock Season 3
review... Until it happens, I'm gonna keep reminding you... And I still
didn't have a decent breakfast
slaymaster999: That evil persian chick oo she was smokin hot! She was so much more
threatning then zerxies (not sure how to spell it.) i loved it! The
athenians seemed more relatable, sure the spartans were badass but
thermistacles even said they fought well for a bunch of potters and farmers
i really liked rise of an empire it was definitely badass and epic i would
buy it on dvd or blue ray
ragingfiip: It's about that time, Jeremy. .........It's time for another
haircut.........because.....I don't know what's going on with your
hair..... It looks like a tattered sloth held onto the top of your head and
Abdullah Alshuwayea: In my country which is Kuwait they cut every scene with a vicious kills
sooo i dont know what did i watch... ill wait for the blu-ray :)
negri negrason: does this guy ever do a bad review? im being serious, i dont watch much of
him but i think i have seen about 5-8 reviews, everytime after ive just
finished watching the movie the review is about and it seems to be good
every single time, i personally thought this movie sucked :/
TheHalomaster256: Really? 300 gets Awesometacular and this gets no alcohol required? This was
at least a buy it on Blu-ray, which i do :)
However i see why Jeremy made that chose, but i still think this had a few
more epic scenes that 300 because 300 had a montage in between the big
battles and also a longer time to get the action. With Rise of an empire it
was all out war and i really liked that.
Midget Tosser: I facepalmed throughout 300, and I was really disappointed that it got
another movie, and I was pissed that they had the nerve to use War Pigs as
the main trailer theme.
Also, in case anyone who cares about history is reading this, Themistocles
was the leader of the Athenian navy during the time that the Battle of
Thermopylae (the battle that 300 focused on), and was part of why the group
lead by Leonidas lasted as long as they did, because he held off the
Persian navy from deploying troops behind them via the straits
That said, I highly doubt he was fighting a land battle at the time and
sincerely wish that Frank Miller would stop making those damned comics
since he clearly didn't do any research beyond names.
genjurooo: The quality of the image sucks. At times it looks like some movie made for
chino0moreno: I like your review better than the other famous guy cause you don't try to
be as "im a profesional movie reviewer" and you just like movies and u are
a regular dude, the other guy said thr main character was boring and i was
like dudeee!!! He kicks so much ass she offers her vagina to him!!! Ok he
is not leonidas kickin ass but he can kick some several inmortals butts!!!
Come on he is awesome!
trufantom21: Just watched 300 Rise of a Empire....I watched my history turned into a
cartoon with a bullcrap story line and over the top CGI special effects.I
really wish those Hollywood Jew f@#ks would stop their feminist bullcrap
and just make a movie where the bad guy isn't an anorexic 40kg Botox laden
bimbo.The real story would have been much better.They should stick with
bullcrap Nazi stories instead.
Josh Lewis Reviews: Nice review, Jeremy. I dug this movie too.
I was a little disappointed in the leading men, didn't think any of them
were quite as good as Gerard Butler or Michael Fassbender, but luckily
enough Eva Green was an incredibly compelling villain. She alone was worth
checking this out.
dIRECT0R: Sure, the Athenians never fought in a phalanx... of course not. They just
charged in like morons. Only the Spartans had a hoplite army.. *facepalm*
This ain't a movie for me.
TimeLimey: 'She was a lady ' Like my ex's lol
TheTruePhoenixAU: I saw this movie about when you did this review, I recommend it heavily :)
Also that sex scene was creepy as while at the same time, somewhat
appealing in a hate freak sort of way....
Mrster: Nice, you Jahnified Dazeem to Gazeem.
EmmeKira: and both this and 300 sucked ass.
panatha tube: Yes you got the pronunciation about Themistocle's name quite right Jeremy
Jahns, and that's coming from a Greek! In Greek his full name is
Θεμιστοκλής του Νεοκλέους ο Φρεάριος though, and, somehow i think you
wouldn't make it past Themistocles...
PS. Without wanting to be boring or sound like a smart ass, the anglophones
(even professors) often mispronounce Leonida's name. They call him
Leon-I-das (meaning they pronounce the i as an English i, whereas in Greek
it sounds like an e, or rather as an i in the word kid, you know kid not
kind) and the Spartan civilians (όμοιοι) make them sound like homo-e-oee
whereas the right pronunciation sounds like more the word bee (οm-ee).
Kudos if you had the patience to read all this!
Adrijana Radosevic: I'm sorry but this movie sucked ass. Seriously, did ALL scriptwiters in
Hollywood die? I mean my CAT could volunteer! YES it had AMAZING visuals
but even THOSE were uncreative compared to 300, but there is NO STORY AT
ALL! It's all "we'll be here in this one place waiting for the Greeks to
unite and you'll be here WITH us, bored to tears once the excitement of
cool movie visual bloodshed wears off"! Seriously, like 30% of the people
LEFT the theatre! The movie has no story, no characters, no NOTHING, they
RUINED Xerxes, the only INTERESTING person is the King who DIES before we
even get to know him and there's the most expensive sex scene in 3D that
didn't even manage to get me moist!?!??!? Seriously, you guys managed to
BORE me with 2 hours of INCREDIBLY GOOD LOOKING SWEATY MUSCULAR MEN BEATING
THE crap OUT OF EACH OTHER!?!?!? What. The. freak, Snyder!??!?!?!?! I feel
like my womanhood was cut off!!! I dunno, I can't see how can anyone beyond
the age of 5 possibly LIKE this movie. The only good bits of it are the
original ones taken from 300. -.- Rest in peace, potentially beautiful
Gatornade: Eva Green, the Persian navy leader, GOD DAMN SOON! I cannot explain my love
dickslap37: i'm sure others will see it differently, but that new 300 movie was freaking
garbage. the entire movie was; explain an uninteresting character, go to a
boring fight scene. explain another uninteresting character, cut to another
boring fight scene, and so on and so forth. the action sucked because it
all took place at night and on boats which made it hard to keep track of
what was going on because it was so freaking dark the whole damn time.
the 3D sucked because it was just generic "whoa! theres blood on the
screen!" action bullcrap. they did not do anything interesting with the 3D
if i could come up with a title for the movie it would be "300! on boats!
except a lot less interesting and a lot less fun this time!"
teheyepatch: Not based on source material? How about actual historical events? Granted,
I didn't think a sequel was necessary anyway, but it's not like this was a
complete work of fiction.
randy lando: Themistocles was actually pretty badass in this movie. There were a few
scenes where I thought he was an awesome solo fighter. So for those of you
who have seen the movie, it begs the question: who would win in a 1 on 1
fight- Themistocles or King Leonidas?
LostJunkie89: I liked how they made the Athenians look not as ripped as the Spartans,
haha. Nice detail.
You can tell the difference at the end when the Spartans finally make their
Rielar: when she chopped that guys head of than kissed him that scene was strange
Brennan Desai: i wanted zurksys to die in this MOVIE but of course zurksys lives DAMN
BlackAera: So is it legit or just a cgi bloodfest that exists because 300 was a
blackbook668: Too many Athenians, not enough Spartans. Too many ship battles. Not enough
Xerxes. Mediocre film only saved by interesting female villain.
mmmmmm: in the ancient world there were no women leading armies or navies, that
part of the movie is laughable
DarthSniper M: Jeremy's ratings usually mirror mine. I was a little surprised it didn't
get a "buy it on B-ray" rating.
Rony Velasquez: My favorite scene was when the girl ask him to join her best part
Flametail23: didn't like this movie much. 2.5 out of 5 is was ok i enjoyed Need for
speed a bit more.
Zach Morley: 3:02. In all fairness, populations back then were so small nearly everyone
could legally be considered inbred, so it's really possible.
CmdrSloanne: Xerxes looks & acts like a Homo erotic Goau'ld from Stargate & Stargate SG-1
. Eva Green loves playing bad girls from the Starz series Camelot as
Morgana & I believe the remake of Dark Shadows. love her.
blackprincses13: I hate This movie seen it answer i was falling asleep makes no sense,
Shlomo Ben Hungstein: i thought it was a great sequel to an epic classic. good story and great
action aside we also get to see Eva Green's tits in full view, glorious.
King Crump: Cant wait to see what his first awesometacular movie of the year is. Not
like I expected this movie to get that lol... Just curious
