300: Rise of an Empire

Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) assembles his troops to fend off an invading Persian army led by the immortal Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and the vindictive Persian navy commander Artemisia (Eva Green) in this sequel to 300 based on the graphic novel Xerses by Frank Miller. In the wake of the Persians' victory over King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans, the God King Xerxes (Santoro) appears poised to conquer Greece. As the ruthless Artemisia (Eva Green) assembles a massive fleet of ships and sets sail for conquest, Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) strives to rally his countrymen to fight for freedom, and he manages to gain the upper hand over the invaders by confronting them at sea. Meanwhile, Leonidas' former advisor and wife Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) is reluctant to sacrifice any more Spartans in a fight that appears to be unwinnable. When the Greeks enjoy an early victory over Artemisia and her soldiers, however, it appears that Themistokles' unconventional tactics are more effective than the Persian Empire's formidable brawn. But later, after Artemisia's attempt to seduce Themistokles to her side proves unsuccessful, the spurned naval commander deals a devastating blow to her Greek opponents. In the aftermath of that skirmish, Themistokles is presumed dead and Athens falls. The Persian Empire seems on the verge of victory, though when Xerxes and Artemisia learn that Themistokles lives, they realize the fight won't be over until he takes his final breath.

That CGI. This was okay. It does have some good moments. The best part was the villain played by Eva Green.

I love the way this sequel overlaps with the original, in both story and characters. Poetic License for sure, with the true history, but that is not good enough a reason to complain. Every few years the CGI multiplies in resolution and number of elements, and on my 75 inch watched at 10 feet, the realism is breathtaking. I have one of those friends who yelps and jumps up and down when the battles explode, and other violent evens happen, and he was on the edge of his seat all the way through. I had to try hard to ignore him, since beheadings of The Bad Buys are not to be missed. Now I wonder what will happen when I watch this again alone. It will be my turn to cheer. And I am happy with the gorgeous women NOT looking like muscle-bound weight-room freaks. If we wanted to see Reality, we could put in a disc from The Great Courses. These actors do well enough for me, especially in the slam-every-surface sex. The Triumph of Democracy has not looked so perfect since the original 300. Bravo!!

Great follow- up to 300. The only criticism I can proffer here is that 110 lb women like Lena Headey and Eva Green are not gonna mix it up with jacked up Immortals and Spartans/Athenians and come out in one piece. They should have hit the weight room before filming started Ahhh Wooooo!!
