300 : Rise Of An Empire

Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) charging with a sword – Sad… pathetic… not a pretty sight.

Artemisia (Eva Green) charging OR just sitting and giving orders OR mincing away with her sword – Ufff zaalim!

The film does start off rather well. Seemed promising. But then, it goes downhill trying to live up to the hype OR perhaps to match the GLORIOUS 300.

This lacked the wit. I still chuckle every time I watch Leonidas say 'Besides, there is no reason we can't be civil'. There were lines like – 'Pray, they are that stupid. Pray, we are that lucky' OR 'We will blot out the sun'. That was some pretty cool writing. Good stuff. Witty.

What do we get in this crappy script… It's laughable:

- 'Why didn't you just say that to begin with'
- 'Do not forget who put the crown on your childish head.. my king'
- 'You fight much harder than you fuck'

The horse on the boat thing - It wasn't like "Wow… look at that". It was more like "WTF! That's just stupid".
