Movie Review: ‘300: Rise of an Empire’

From the get-go, there are several things you might find highly suspect about 300: Rise of an Empire. Maybe you’re hesitant to approach a sequel to a film nearly a decade after its predecessor was released. Or maybe you believe 300 was so inextricably linked to Zach Snyder’s style that there’s no way it can work under a different director.

Whatever the case, it’s time to unwad your loincloth and let the professional scallywags known as The Unusual Suspects give you the lowdown. They deconstruct this new 300 by the numbers, and all without barbaric war cries or slipping into unnecessary slow motion.

Rattle your swords with delight as Ashley, Beau, Chris, Elliott, and J.C. launch their analytical arrows at this brazenly buff new epic.
