Simply A Masterpiece
Good movie, but best of all time? Hardly . . .
Fresh and Exciting
Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
I started watching this on Amazon Prime and turned it off as it was so rubbish. Sadly I forgot this and turned it on again some months afterward. The cinematography is clearly focused on 3D and that's the best part of it. The acting is atrocious, not that the script would help it really. On the bright side it wasn't that long!
How would you feel if you found out that somebody lied to you? Would you respect a person who tells serious lies about an important thing?We all know about Alexander's invasion and conquest of Persia but have you ever heard of Xerxes' invasion and conquest of Hellas?Leonidas with many more people than just 300 tried in vain to stop the Persian army and got crushed. But why so much respect for Leonidas? Because he fought intrepidly. What would he have gotten if it happened in the modern era? He would probably have received an army commendation or something - posthumously. Get the point? Okay, he's been exaggerated!The people of Athens ran for their lives days before the Persian army reached Hellas borders. Oh, and it was the Persians who grew beards as seen on all the stone carvings remaining from ancient times not the Greeks. In the movie the Persians look like aliens, orcs, zombies and beasts!Some parts of history are musts to be read. The Greko-Persian wars is an important chapter in the history of mankind.I am so concerned about how our media are run by such illiterate thugs who show no respect to accuracy when accounting for a real event. I mean how can we trust anyone from now on?

Honestly this was entertaining to watch and had a well mounted story, yeah it wasn't historically correct, whatever, for that matter go see a documentary, honestly i found it amusing and good not deserving of the 3/10 people are giving it, 300 was a super movie and people are putting this one in a bad spot because of the shadow of the original and that's not fair, this isn't Lalaland or some utter garbage movie like that.
I finally got around to watching this movie and WTF were they thinking when they created this one? It fails in every way to live up to the original film. I was expecting something completely different than this half mess. I like about one-half of this film and the other half I didn't.The story is a far cry from the first movie - it sucks, badly sucks. I really expected this follow-up to sorta pick up where the first film left off and not a half messed up prequel.What I did like was the battles and costuming... and that's about it. Most of the actors are okay but could not hold a candle to the first film. My beef with it is the story stinks for the most part.I'm rating it a 5 out of 10 because I half way liked it, and half way didn't. I would recommend the first movie but not this one.5/10
