  • "300" was an innovative and imaginative action film, but the follow-up, 300: Rise of an Empire, is nothing but a disappointment. show more

  • Israeli director Noam Murro does an excellent job of managing and expanding the franchise established so vividly by Zach Snyder. show more

  • The only saving grace is Green, the reigning witch-queen of cinema. The smoky-eyed French actress, best known for “Casino Royale,” “The Golden Compass” and “Dark Shadows,” throws her all into the performance, going bare-chested at times, bared-teeth at others. She’s like Elizabeth Taylor’s "Cleopatra" possessed by a succubus — which is a good thing. Without her, 300: Rise of an Empire would be bloodless and brainless. show more

    What a sorry excuse for a sequel; dumbed down, corny, too much "mushy" dialog. The trailer had all the best parts. I'm sure King Leonidis was crying as he watched this movie from Hell. Plus, I can't wrap my head around that actress playing his wife, acting in anything else other than Game of Thrones

    I love great villains, Eve Green was one of the best so far this year. Waiting for Maleficent to come out....Angie may beat her on that one.
