300: Rise Of An Empire Movie Review




What do you think about this video?

Steven Choza: While the movie if not even close to historically accurate there is a reason for why some of the characters in this movie were tied to the previous movie that is grounded in historical reality. The battle at the pass (I have a hard time spelling the name of the place) seen in the 1st 300 movie was actually one of two battles going on at same time as Themistocles and the Greek naval forces were fighting a naval battle just off the coast where the Leonidas and the Spartans were having their fight. Obviously this fact was still skewed in many aspects by the movie by that was something that did happen, though not in the way the movies portrayed it.

JayDub: The most piece of crap movie I've seen in the last few years, terrible acting (main character especially), terrible casting, and repetitive fighting scenes all over the place. What a complete freak up.

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.

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.

Cameron Potts: DOGSHYT!!! hahaha I respect your review tho!! ;D

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 at all. 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!"

OrdoMallius: What a crapty review. The movie was beyond crap. A simple cash grab on 300 IP and nothing more. Actions scenes? Completely soulless copy paste from 300 with massive amounts of CG and SLOWMOTION added for the sake of CG and SLOWMOTION. Acting? What freaking acting. And the main villain is nothing more than pandering to feminists. She's a tough army general because ....? And she can talk back to Xexses a man that kills his generals for even looking at him wrongly because ....? Completely freaking idiotic. And you say "it's a fun movie"? What?

demonpride1975: i wasnt really a big fan of this movie. i wanted lots of combat and i got politics. not to mention leonidas's queen becomes a badass killer in this movie yet they show no combat skill in her in the first movie.

Chief Godstaff: 300: Rise of an Empire was such an incomplete movie. Millions of dollars and they cant end the movie properly.

ATPP: Rated this movie 0/10 also added it to my worst movie ever list.

Nahchuva: i hated how easily she was defeated, crapty ass end, arg. 

spartan3774: Wow, this is a great movie and more historically accurate then any thing ive seen in awhile. Seriously tho, I loved it. This movie intertwines with the first 300 back and forth beautifully which makes me wonder, the tards saying this movie is crap must not be able to mentally handle a proper sequel or havnt even seen the 1st. And actually its NOT a sequel... It happens at the exact SAME time as 300, has a similar plot defending Greece, has just as gooda acting as 300 and the same comic blood style. This makes me wonder, maybe its getting mediocer reviews cuz the reviewers are complete homosexuals maggots? I understand the dudes were more beefed up in 300#1, but come on, lets be professional here...

h sh: the movie is very stupid a women who got raped again and again should be very very weak (hiv) she killing right and left i laughed so much .how such skinny women is doing that.who know the girl from " The Dreamers "would get this part also the "queen " how also got raped "for her country and king " she also very stupid she said at the beginning" no we won't help you Sparta can take care of it "and on the second time when he asked her for help she said"did n't we give enough ?!"whaat the fighting of the two women is the most funny thing on earth especially the queen at the end it's really a shame to watch those two galz after the hip neither less Sullivan Stapleton was Amazing kick-ass 

Quinn Quintillus: Holy crap was this film forgettable? Funny thing is I really liked the movie, even if I called bullcrap on some of the fight scenes. And I hate it when people are able to see each other from a mile away, that crap is really dumb. The CGI blood looked terrible too.

hedidit55: They foughtfreak in this this movie.

Joshua Koerner: Please read Herodotus before saying, "where's the source material?" And also before saying, "you don't need to use characters from the last movie, you can make a new character, it's not that small of a world!" Because Athens and Sparta and Salamis and Thermopylae are all fairly close to one another. 

iHaveContrl: For the one who wrote the dialogues... like "freak" "crap" "I'll be damn" "street fight" etc man im pretty sure those Greek people from 21st century man ... there are lots of modern language in there and it really bothers me... makes me feel like they haven't finish high school and had an C- for their English and History class... CGI: I dont mind the blood is cgi, but it looks way too distracting and fake, feels like digital tomato source all over the place... i was quite enjoyed the blood in the first 300!! Slow motion: only Matrix and Zack Snyder knows how to play to this trick, the others just plain irritating and annoying. there is lots of fight but only a few decent fights in this movie. Sex scene: man, i don't mind sex scene but it feels way too much like porn makes me wonder am i watching porn, director clearly knows how to shoot porn but don't know how shoot sex scene...seriously that was 3 min long sex scene without slow motion... I just can not comparing the characters to the first 300.... The Tile: There is nothing about 300. Maybe they can do it in comics but u dont do that in movies.Bad. Man this movie really just a top 6/10 for me. I fast forward some of the dialogues coz i was having trouble with it.

spider-pony: we need a part 3 

Suraj Vadulas: themo..whats his name was not even close to leonidas,

Nick Mamo: It was a good movie but a better fap.

dlprs17: The battles and the time of the battles in both movies is historically accurate search it. And themistocles was real trying to unit greece wen leonidas fight in thermopiles-hotgates is not just a comics or a second movie this is real history and thats why the two movies have a bond I JUST LIKE HISTORY xD

Kurt Cocaine: I loved 300, but this movie was trash. Xerxes' origins ruined his character. It made him seem a lot less powerful than he was in the first film at the expense of making Eva Green's character look good. Why was Leonidas' wife fighting alongside the Spartans and killing most of their enemies? Didn't Leonidas explain in the original 300 movie how important formations were to the Spartan army? Was there any of that in this film? No. That was completely forgotten. Eva Green's character was a lady, I agree. She was ruthless, yet in the scene where she died there was sad music playing as if we were supposed to sympathise with her? Why? The main hero wasn't at all interesting. The majority of the film was spent on sea. I wanted to see Xerxes get what was coming to him, yet we never saw that either. Boring, but at least we saw Eva Green's tits. 

GoddessChellLuv: The only thing I liked about this movie was that the chick was a bad mofo killin folks like it was nobodys biz; everything else was crapty; even her acting sucked ass

kshitiz singh: the kiss was epic.... ive never been disgusted and aroused at the same time..

HERO4THSKII: I thought 300 rise of an empire is one of THE BEST THING I HAVE SEEN IN CINEMA!!!

London Tessa Angelit: I liked the movie but I have to say realllly historically inaccurate. 1. Artemisia doesn't die in the battle. IRL she is defeated, demoted, and ends up taking care of Xerxes illegitimate kids. To go from a women who commanded a navy to a babysitting gig, kind of sucks really. I think they could have showed that in the movie. 2. Her back story, not much to go on there but she was the queen of an island before she helped Xerxes, so I'm kind of thinking she fought for Persia probably because they would let her. 3. No big iron oil fire ship. Sorry that comes in a different battle, sorry to be a nitpick nerd. Aside from that I don't really care about that so much as its about a story and I really liked that its more a story about two commanders and partly about finding an equal in life. Fun movie still and I totally want Artemisia's armor form the last battle. LOL

KINGJULIO3: Great movie! are they making the 3rd 300? Because on Rise of an Empire they only destroy the navy......

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.

Darkness56: I actually disliked this movie. My reason why.... TO MUCH SLOW MOTION. Seriously the entire time there was a fight it was sword attack and slow mo. oh a guy behind him turn and sword attack and slow mo. oh a guy charging at him he shield hits him which then goes into slow mo and then stabs in slow mo. When your entire friggin battle scenes are all slow motion driving it gets friggin annoying as hell

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? 

Phil S.: I thought this was a great movie, just as great as the first 300. It does leave some questions unanswered, and I thought it showing how Xerxes became who he is now was poorly done. I know that this is based off a comic book, which is why it's more stylized, perhaps maybe I'm taking this a bit too seriously, but I would like to every now and then see a movie that's taking place in a historical setting to be realistic. Other than that, Rise of an Empire is a fun movie, I'm totally going to buy it when it's released in stores.

Ryan Cox: I thought it was great and underrated

Tecumseh Sherman: THE THING IS..EVERYTHING IS TIED TOGETHER. THE WAR WITH PERSIA HAD LAND AND SEA THEATERS OF OPERATION. WHILE THE SPARTANS DEALT WITH THE LAND BATTLES, THE ATHENIANS DEALT WITH THE SEA PART OF IT. THE THIRD MOVIE WILL MOST LIKELY DEAL WITH THE 3 MAJOR BATTLES INSIDE GREECE WHICH THE SPARTANS WON OVER THE PERSIANS.

Elijah Hernandez: Clearly many of you dont understand that the third movie will be twice as kick ass action, grannit the battles werent long enough but were gonna see more gore,action. In the sequel

William McStruthers: The original 300 was so much better, the action flowed and the scenes that were not combat felt did not drag on. Even the fights in Rise of an Empire were more boring than the quiet scenes of 300. 

LightYagami100000: I really enjoyed this movie more than 300 mainly because of the chick villain. I would'n mind being chained to her at all.

AnonymousShree: 300 Rise of an Empire is crap movie.. 

Hingle McCringleberry: Themistocles was the naval general at the battle of Thermopylae.

Pulp Redemption: I walked into the theater cautious, and i walked out dissapointed

TOYMASTERFUL: I knew this movie was going to be crap! I didnt even bother seeing it and dont think I will...the first one was enough!

UNREAL REALITY: Seriously, i didn't like this movie...

pumastp98: does this movie deserves a torrent?

Ben Watt: This movie didn't connect with me on an emotional level, and I didn't find the characters inspiring. The CGI blood splatters stood-out as CGI to me. Not sure if this was a directorial decision to make the movie "feel" like a comic book or not, but I found it annoying--mainly because something serious would be happening--or the movie would be trying to create a solemn mood--and then suddenly, the tone switches to a near-campy level, splatter-fest. This movie was just a mess.

annonyym whattaa: This more bad as f**k, if i would have watched it alone i would probably have gone home. worst movie i've spent money on in a very long time...

JusticeFinn: I think it was kinda better than the first to be honest.

Soopa Fly: looks like a good time, but its too bad the blood looks worse.

noah gonzalez: I just watched this movie and I think this was an epic movie more blood than the first 300 and had more intense action scenes. I like how it was tying into the first 300 and ending with all the Greek cities fighting with each other I give this movie 9.5 out of 10 I do recommend this to any one who liked the first 300 and any bloody action movies.

Brenton Sampson: Bull great movie great story she lost just deal with it

Gent M: This movie was the definition of EPIC .

genjurooo: The quality of the image sucks. At times it looks like some movie made for TV.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
