300: Rise of an Empire Movie Review

Sort of during / continuation of the movie 300 adapted from the Frank Miller Comic, this movie is sort of an extension of the 300 movie. Thinking of game term, this is a side quest or a add on pack you need to purchase.

Throughout the movie, you see topless men everywhere and gratuitous blood and gore. The naval battle and the horse scene is pretty awesome, but the movie lacks the momentum like what they did in 300.

The stylistic death scenes is what you would expect in a video game today, and no doubt, there will be a video game around this movie. Lots of blood, lots of gore, lots of topless man... Wait, did I forgot about the plot of the movie?

If you love the slo-mo gore and blood in 300, this movie will not disappoint you.

If you love hot bodies, men with great chiseled bodies, this movie will not disappoint you.

If you enjoy blood and mutilation with tons of decapitation, piercing through bodies, this movie will not disappoint you.

Overall, the movie is stylistically very pretty, some of the scenes pretty well done, but the pacing of the movie is not as good as the original 300.

Watching this in 3D with more blood and gore is pretty worth it, otherwise, watch it at home with lots of alcohol!

Rating: 6/10
