’300: Rise of an Empire’ Review

300 Rise of an Empire review
Warner Bros.

Before anything else: the sex.

There is a sex scene in '300: Rise of an Empire' that is an all-timer. Put it right up there on the shelf next to 'Don't Look Now,' 'A History of Violence,' 'Blue is the Warmest Color,' '9 ½ Weeks' and any of the others that make those best-of lists. Actually, put next to that insanity in the pool from 'Showgirls' (you know, with the dolphin statue?), because there's a level of playful absurdity that changes it from a representation of love (or, more accurately, lust) to something of a Broadway choreographer's interpretation of a fight. Like a 'West Side Story' rumble, but with Eva Green moaning and bent over a table with maps and war figurines. A rise of an empire, indeed.

’300: Rise of the Empire’ Set Visit: “Lots of Killing and Swords and Fun”

'300: Rise of an Empire' isn't exactly a sequel. It is, in fact, the events happening at the same time as the battle of the Hot Gates from the first film. Thermisticles (Sullivan Stapleton), who was a real life politician and warrior, has a pretty brilliant idea. (Seriously, check out his Wikipedia page here.) It's an idea that may save the Greeks. Okay, fine. It did save the Greeks, considering the fact that we live in a democratic society.

Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) is back and we're actually learning quite a bit about his past. Though we didn't get to chat with Santoro on set, we talked to director Noam Murro about working with this much CGI, Sullivan about his role and Eva Green about her real-life female warrior. Check out what they had to say below.
