300: Rise of an Empire (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD UltraViolet Combo Pack) Review

Synopsis: 300: Rise of an Empire,” told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” is a new chapter of the epic saga, which takes the action to a new battlefield—the sea. The story pits the Greek general Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces, ruled by the mortal-turned-god Xerxes, and led by Artemisia, the vengeful commander of the Persian navy.  Knowing his only hope of defeating the overwhelming Persian armada will be to unite all of Greece, Themistokles ultimately leads the charge that will change the course of the war.

Review: This is the sequel to the hit adventure fantasy film 300.  I actually enjoyed this film more than the first one, for a few reasons.  Firstly, a new director...I'm not a Zack Snyder fan whatsoever.  Next, the effects were toned down a bit from the first one.  The story in this one is a little prequel and a also some events that happen at the same time as the events in 300.  This was surprisingly fun for a sequel and I would actually recommend it to anyone!
