Are you ready for tons blood, yelling, more physically fit men wearing practically nothing and enough slow-motion shots that almost give you enough time to get up and grab some more popcorn? Then you must be ready to see 300: Rise of an Empire. Where the first movie, 300, focused on the battle of King Leonidas and his force of 300 men who fought against King Xerxes and his Persian army. This new movie, which acts like a sequel/companion piece to the story we already know. While King Leonidas is off fighting in one part of Greece we now see what the other half was doing at the same time and after Leonidas sacrifice. Here we follow Greek General Themistocles who leads the charge against invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-God King Xerxes and Artemisia, a vengeful commander of the Persian navy who will stop for nothing to destroy all the Greeks.
