      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It's bound to hit some viewers as an empty exercise in stylish gore, and despite a gonzo starring performance from Eva Green, 300: Rise of an Empire is a step down from its predecessor.

      Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online 300: Rise of an Empire... may focus on the brawny Greek and Persian battles of the 480-479 BC era, but it also presents a kickass group of complex women characters whose sexual prowess is as mighty as their swords. Rated: B+ Sep 5, 2017 Full Review David Stratton At the Movies (Australia) [The story] gets constantly literally swamped by the blood and gore and so forth, which is well done but almost to the point of parody. Rated: 2/5 Mar 12, 2014 Full Review Larushka Ivan-Zadeh metro.co.uk The big box-tick here is that it is the women who ultimately command the impressively surging CGI hordes on both sides. Rated: 3/5 Mar 10, 2014 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …very much more of the same in terms of bare-chested speeches and heavy bouts of narration, but the epic sea battles are freshly presented, and the spectacle is huge throughout… Rated: 3/5 Jul 13, 2023 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies Aside from Green, “300: Rise of an Empire” doesn’t have a lot to offer. Rated: 2/5 Aug 25, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Green enlivens the screen. The rest consists of profuse bloodshed and slow-motion, copying Snyder’s style to mind-numbing extremes. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 18, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Marc Z So 300 is the a Classic film that changed the face of films. It is an epic piece of historical fiction based upon a comic novel that was a highly popular. Frank Miller masterfully outlined this and it was masterfully executed by the filmmakers. Gerard Butler's performance as King Leonidis of Sparta was memorable and often quoted. This film is a sequel and prequel to the original. It is a good and bloody, violent action film with a unique look similar to the original. There are many returning and many new characters. Eva Green is great as the Persian General. Despite all the good, it is not the original and Butler is really missed. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Arlen B To quote AC/DC: “If You Want Blood You Got It” Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/06/24 Full Review Audience Member 2 words..Eva Green. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/04/24 Full Review Cristian s Una década después de su lanzamiento recién llego a ponerme al día y ver esta secuela. Cumple con lo que esperaba en lo que respecta a accion y gore, tiene buena cinematografía y mucho slow motion aunque no logra verse ni sentirse como la original. Lo mismo pasa con la historia, acá es mucho mas compleja e intrincada pero por alguna extraña razón no logra tener tanto punch como aquella simple de la anterior. En fin digna segunda parte, no logra ser como su antecesora pero si esta a la altura con la expectativa. Me gusto. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Justin W In continuing blood flow art, you get exactly what you expect, but I still missed the hot gate. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Nico W As a big fan of the original 300 i found myself confused and lost during rise of an empire don't get me wrong the cinematography the special effects the gore its phenomenal but as a story it just doesn't hit as hard as 300 did the sea battles are phenomenal and the action is entertaining as hell but gaps in the story leave lot to be desired for instance when did Leonidas's wife learn to battle with sword and shield when they never even talked about her being involved in combat. The movie is considerably shorter than 300. But make no mistake if you want to get a follow up to one of the greatest pieces of film in recent history then Rise Of A Empire is not half bad it also has alot of WTF moments for example when the main character charges in for the final battle he does it on a horse in the middle of the ocean okay writing this is sounds pretty awesome but the thing is where 300 focused on the history of the spartans and there sacrifice to save there country Rise of a empire does the opposite focusing more on the action and Fantasy movie genre then a modern action documentary so to say like 300 was. All things considered its not bad personally i feel that the way 300 ended we didn't need a sequel to it and its yet another way for Hollywood to make a quick buck of a franchise that is now sadly as dead as Leonidas Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Read all reviews
