different direction, why needs a real poster when I can sketch (poorly) lol
Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.
“300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE” pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and Artemisia, vengeful commander of the Persian navy.
300 was released back in 2006 and 8 years apart, 300: Rise of an Empire made the green screen and CG more stunning. For design based view, I really love how it renders the scenes and the lighting control was amazing to view. I believe this is one of the show I sat tight and enjoy every single one of the frames.
I am not saying this is the best film but it gives amazement to me that I couldn't resist. Maybe I'm dry, on screening attendance.
It is quite a show with the IMAX 3D experience. The little details like the tiny dust flying across the screen makes it a worthwhile 3D viewing trip. Personally I really love the blood scenes. In my opinion, it is better than those fake liquid blood used in most production.
Censorship in Malaysia was not that tight as most gory and bloody scenes are shown. I believe there were only 2 obvious parts that got cut because of the probability of sexual scenes. So yea, you can't see naked women (or Eva Green particularly)!
300: Rise of an Empire will receive 3.5/5 from Aprilfy.
