300: Rise of an Empire

Action . War . Drama . Fantasy

Based on Frank Miller's latest graphic novel Xerxes and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster "300," this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield--on the sea--as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. "300: Rise of an Empire" pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes and Artemesia, the vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

More Info:
  • Richard Roeper

    Even with the uniformly good performances — and the standout work from Ms. Green — 300: Rise of an Empire is foremost a triumph of production design, costumes, brilliantly choreographed battle sequences and stunning CGI.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    While very much a “hard R” movie, Rise of an Empire is, nevertheless, the perfect sort of film for rainy weekend afternoons. It’s a spectacle right down to its shattered ships and duplicitous warcraft, and this time out the story’s been leavened and enlivened with plenty of old-school girl power.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    300: Rise Of An Empire is a worthy sequel to "300," stylistically consistent and equally loony, featuring what may well be the first truly can't-miss performance in a film this year.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    The film belongs to Green — maybe the only actress ever to "graduate" from being a Bertolucci muse to a bloodthirsty action-flick dominatrix.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Rise of an Empire might have been essentially more of the same, but for one distinction that makes it 300 times better than its predecessor: Mere mortals of Athens, Sparta, and every city from Mumbai to Minneapolis, behold the magnificent Eva Green, and tremble!

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Anchored by Eva Green’s fearsome performance as a Persian naval commander whose vengeful bloodlust makes glowering King Xerxes seem a mere poseur, this highly entertaining time-filler lacks the mythic resonances that made “300” feel like an instant classic, but works surprisingly well on its own terms.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

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

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Entirely more engaging by dint of being absolutely impossible to take even a little bit seriously. The ruthlessness of Green's character is taken to extremes that meld Medea to the cheesiest serial you can name, and is hence delicious. Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The lack of a creative driver behind the film leads to a level of fundamental dissatisfaction. The movie delivers all the necessary elements but their impact is dull.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    This is digital fake-ism all the way. Audiences bought it the first time; they're likely to buy it a second time.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Green rules the picture with her nutty stare and her willingness to get nasty in a hot sex scene, but the movie’s main weak point is the Greek general Themistokles.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The design... is stunning, an improvement over 2006′s “300.” And the action never disappoints. It’s a pity this colorless cast doesn’t hold a candle to the Butler/Headey/Michael Fassbender/David Wenham crew of the original, that the writers couldn’t conjure up thrilling speeches to match the original.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    For all the energetic milling, Rise of an Empire proves superior to its predecessor by making war a game both sexes can play, on nearly equal terms. In comparison, the R-rated "300" seems as innocent as Adam in the Garden before the delicious complication of Eve — or Eva.

    Time Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The spectacularly brutal fighting is the film's main calling card, and in that "Rise of an Empire" doesn't disappoint. Still, in the battle for best guilty pleasure, I'd give it to the Spartans of "300," by a head.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    If 300’s human touch largely came down to Butler’s roaring and screaming, it’s left entirely to Green to goose the sequel into life. Happily she obliges.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Just as bloody yet much more conventional, 300 #2 offers splashy thrills aplenty but fails to make a watertight case for its own existence. Green, however, ensures it stays afloat.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    It’s all extravagantly daft, moves at a fair clip and is over before you expect it to be.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The best thing about the new 300: Rise of an Empire is that Zack Snyder didn’t direct it. And the worst thing about it is that Zack Snyder didn’t direct it.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    Stunningly shot and stupidly written.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    The naval collisions and melees play out in panel-like renderings that are bold and satisfying for the first half-hour but lack the momentum and bombastic je ne sais quoi of “300.”

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Basically, if the first “300” was a pep-talk from Coach on how to lose with dignity, Rise of an Empire is an inspirational speech on the value of teamwork.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Other than for the pleasure of watching Green try to conquer ancient Greece dressed as a distant forebearer of Catwoman, more is less and a little late in this long-aborning sequel.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It really is pretty dull, though, with the same moments of campy silliness: the same frowning gym bunnies with the same digitally enhanced abs.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The best thing about the movie, by far, is Green. Her Artemisia is a real nut case with a taste for blood, and Green is the only one in the cast who seems to be having any fun at all.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    The film feels epic in scope, visually at least, but the depth of its deep-focus composition is bitterly at odds with the flimsiness of its characterization and plotting.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Adam Nayman

    By throwing herself headfirst into scenes that a more cautious actress might beg off, Green earns herself a citation for valour – a Purple Heart in a movie that’s otherwise way too grim and grey for its own good.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    Forgettable and only mildly entertaining, 300: Rise of An Empire seals its own fate at the initial story level by being so deeply invested in its own mythmaking and playing super safe.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    Both a prequel and a sequel to the original tale, only with more bloodspilling and slow-motion, and even less wit or truth.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    When the film isn’t sloppily directed, it’s a series of lazy filmmaking tics, including fetishistic slow-motion shots of blood, water and sweat, as well as sundry dismemberments, impalings and decapitations.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

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

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Steve Macfarlane

    Noam Murro gives the film nothing so much as a hit-refresh on the same glistening, impossibly golden and gray flecks of pixel-barf that have invaded the frames of every tent-pole studio release since the Bush administration.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Murro doesn’t so much direct as frame and stage, placing the characters against digital desktop-wallpaper skies and constructing each battle scene as a showcase for the characters’ prowess and toughness.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    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.
