Director: Noam Murro
Starring: Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green

300: Rise Of An Empire is a 'sandal-and-sword', action/fantasy blockbuster and a 'follow-up of sorts' to 2007's 300. The story continues from where the first film ended, but oddly jumps backwards and forwards to previous events from the first film. Naval and land battles fought circa 480BC under the second Persian invasion of Greece are explored, including the battles of Artemisium, Thermopylae and Salamis.

The cast boasts all-star Australian actors, headed by Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles and David Wenham and Callan Mulvey in smaller roles. Artemisia, the vengeful commander of the Persian navy is aptly played by Eva Green.

The graphic violence of the battle scenes is nauseating, with scenes of decapitations and dismemberment amongst others, realistically depicting the savagery of the era. Nothing is left to the imagination as the body count escalates into the thousands. The nudity and sex scenes are also confronting.

CGI and 3-D visuals are put to work, transforming the story of Persian naval invasions into a visually stimulating and mind-blowing spectacular as audiences are seemingly transported into the ferocious blood-splattering battles fields.

Well crafted, 300: Rise Of An Empire is effectively edited, contains mesmerizing cinematography and the stop/start action sequences will ensure audiences are satisfied, even those who fail to keep up with the entangling storylines.
