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
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
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
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
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
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
makes me feel like they haven't finish high school and had an C- for their
English and History class...
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!!
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.
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....
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
HERO4THSKII: I thought 300 rise of an empire is one of THE BEST THING I HAVE SEEN IN
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
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
