After its victory over Leonidas' 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes' army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.


STARRING:

Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles
Eva Green as Artemisia
Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo of Sparta
Rodrigo Santoro as King Xerxes
Hans Matheson as Aeskylos
Andrew Pleavin as Daxos
Callan Mulvey as Scyllias

I honestly don't see the point in this movie. I hope it's good tho

This is a cash grab. Like Taken 2.
jerryblake - 12/20/2013, 12:00 PM
Taken 2 was better than part 1.
First Taken was just Commando with Liam Neeson minus the humour

300 sucked, this will suck.
BlackIceJoe - 12/20/2013, 12:05 PM
I can't wait to see this movie. It may not be needed but that does not mean it can't be good. The first was enjoyable and I think this one will be too.

Plus at Jobin you will be happy to hear that Taken 3 is coming out in a few years.

300 was good movie once it came out. It was something new and fresh.

it's a cult movie now. Still i don't think it's that good. I don't think it did stand the test of time. I would need to rewatch it. I just don't have a need to do it.


This sequel is unnecessary. Too much time has passed.
They should greenligh a sequel right after first part hit the silver screens back in 2006.

The only sequel that i think is worth waiting for is Sin City 2

@Slave

i think Taken 2 was smarter. Like that hotel rooftop/map scene.

Unknown was better than Taken/Taken 2

Taken one was awesome!!! Taken 2 suck because of director who made the sequel sucked.
DrDoom - 12/20/2013, 1:26 PM

Get outta here ya jerks

Athens will burn?? Bitch I live there!! [frick] you Xerxes!!

Good movie! Well, it wasn't exactly based on the actual story (it is a true story, obviously without the monsters and I don't think Xerxes dressed up like that) but still very good! After all, if they didn't add some fiction, nobody would watch it. I wish they casted some greek actors or actresses though...

One of the movies I'm looking forward to seeing next year!

Don't get the hate on 300 or this sequel.
If you like badass action movies then how can you not enjoy these films?
Oh yeah...your a pussy.
DrDoom - 12/20/2013, 4:25 PM
sameoldthing gets it
TheRationalNerd - 12/20/2013, 10:35 PM
Lol, I wonder if they'll make a sequel to "Meet the Spartans" since we're getting another 300 movie?
aztecRaingod - 12/20/2013, 11:38 PM
1st one was OK (overrated as phuck) but I am not compelled in the least to watch this one.
TheSoulEater - 12/21/2013, 9:57 PM
He looks like such a sassy lassy
Nubase - 12/22/2013, 1:54 AM
l will watch this, people said that spartacus will fail cos it was a rip off from 300 and it turned out to one of the best tv shows of its time.

If your a fan of 300, it makes sense to watch this cos the action is set on the sea not on land
