The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.
Plot: Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. Themistokles faces the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god, Xerxes and Artemesia, the vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

Did they really have to do a second movie?
More of the same but with lack of innovation and talent. The story is predictable and unconnected, the same than the battles.
Stapleton’s character doesn’t have the same power in screen than 300’s Butler’s.
Probably, the only thing to save is Eva Green although I think she is walking a path in which she is not gaining points to perform in better future movies.
Turgid sequel with a towering performance by Eva Green at its center.
Make no mistake, she dominates this movie and lays scorched earth wherever she goes. The male cast members flex and grimace with all they’ve got but when Green is on screen she is all you look at.
It’s definitely one of the best performances in a bad movie I can recall.
End of the original 300 legacy!
The film is based as a backdrop to the original 300 storyline and paves a wave for the next part in the franchise but all the way it just drained the legacy of 300. The hero gives uninspiring talks with beats in the background score rising to make the army automatically charged up to start fighting and die… its very nonsensical just like Themistokles saying ” Today is the day we water the plants” and with rising music the army responds hu rahhh and they get into the battle.
Zack Snyder after delivering the man of steel just seems to have treated this franchise as a step son by doing the screenplay but giving away the direction at Murro’s hands who just couldn’t pull it off. The casting of suvillian stapleton as a lead actor who clearly fumbles in dialogue delivery and acting was the biggest stupidity. The only silver lining was Eva Green and she delivered right on the money as expected with lena heady who just has a few scenes.
guess people will just have to watch this part hoping something better will come in the third. So in all a disappointing experience for one of the awaited films in my list of 2014.
Reasons why you’ll forget this movie 10 minutes after viewing it.
I’ll be honest here. I wasn’t a big fan of 300. The script was pretty basic but what worked was the production values, the action, casting and .. the dialogues. That it what made it the moderate entertainer that it was.
Now comes the sorry sequel. Here you’ll find a short list of things that make this movie un-watchable —
The story- Its like 300 all over again, minus the intensity and masculinity. Its terrible. There is no innovation , clearly the writer and director were short of any inspiration that could make the story adequately satisfying on any level. There was a kind of side story involving a father and son which was probably the worst part of this distasteful movie. By the end , i didn’t care what happened to anybody as long as it happened quickly .0/10
The dialogues- So amateur, so freaking juvenile. Probably due to absence of script, the actors (oh the wretched actors!, will come to that later) were made to improvise and blurt whatever seems to be right-ish.
Warrior: There will be death and destruction!
Themistocles: Yes… (long pause)
Themistocles: There will be.
And not to forget ,SEIZE THE GLORY!!. 0/10
The casting- The actors ,all of them, even Queen Cercei, were just going through the motions. The lead guy was seriously miscast. He tried to pull a Butler, but failed…epically. Eva Green tried to do what she could with what she had, but she never had enough. Her scenes became monotonous after a while. The side actors could easily have been crew members who were given roles just to get on with this crap-fest. The only strong character , i.e Xerxes was given about 6 minutes of screen time. Its almost as if Zack ‘The Hack’ Snyder wanted this movie to fail, and fail it did. 2/10 (only for Rodrigo Santoro)
The production- Now this is what made the original…well mediocre. I honestly believed that the movie will stand out in this department. Now heres what i observed. Although made on a budget of 100 million, the effects were god-darn terrible. At times it felt like i was watching a TV show. Spartacus has 20 times better production value than this mess of a movie. The battle scenes felt like the opposite of epic. Has this director ever shot any action scene before, let alone a battle! I think not. I’ve seen better choreographed fights in Monty Python and the Holy Grail and i believed that about sums it up. 00/10
The direction- Probably a first timer, a clueless director just trying to follow a blind man’s footsteps. I am not saying that a good director might have been able to pull it off, but this guy just added insult to injury. 0/10.
The climax – Don’t care. Just Frickin end it and i’ll be off. 0/10
And the absolute worst part– There’s gonna be another one. When people will forget how bad this was , Mr Snyder will lay another crap on us. YAY!!
Don’t watch it. Please. Or if you’re so darn inclined to punish yourself, i’d suggest you go easy on yourself and just watch 2 back to back recent Adam Sandler Movies.
