Movie Review: 300: Rise of an Empire (2014)

300 Rise of an Empire

Ok. I liked the original, so there was no way I was not going to see this movie. The plot is basically the same thing as the original just with different characters. There is a ton of action, blood and gore that we have come accustomed to with the 1st installment. There is also a ton of CGI graphics that make it seem a little like a cartoon at some points and take away from the enjoyment of the film.

Like with most sequels it’s hard to live up to the standards set by the original and this movie is no different.  If you are a fan of the original then there is no doubt that you will check this out but unfortunately you will be disappointed because there are points during the movie that are just boring. So if it’s on and there is nothing else on you might want to check it out, but please don’t go out of your way to see this. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!!!

    I loved the original 300 movie, so it’s a shame that this one doesn’t quite live up to the standards.

    I have not seen the original nor have my boys. They like action movies so they might like this one.


  5. Golly, I must be out of the loop – never heard of this movie or an original. Looks like something our son would love, though! 🙂


  6. I will still see this one…just on DVD. I did like the original although my sweetie and stepson fell asleep. And, I am also not a fan of the cartoony look for action films.


  7. I don’t watch television or movies except maybe twice a year, but this seems like something my husband might like.

    I think this is something that we would all love to see. We don’t go to the show much so as long as I can download it or watch it on DVD, we are good.

    Looks like a great movie. I like the Roam aspect. I bet it will be a great watch.


  12. I just watched this the other day. I really enjoyed it. Its definitely an all action little talk movie.


  13. I have not seen the original or this new one! They seem like they would be good to watch.


  14. I haven’t watched any version of this movie… I can imagine all the action; battles and losses in it.
