300, the movie that slow-motioned everything is back with an unnecessary sequel called 300: Rise of an Empire. The movie features pale big-breasted go-to Evil looking actress Eva Green, Lena “Cersei Lannister” Headey, and Paulo from Lost as the giant makeup guy Xerxes. Everyone should be happy this movie is coming out because who doesn’t want to see slow-mo shots of guys chopping at trees!
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 Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
