Storyline

After its victory over Leonidas' 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches 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. Written by ahmetkozan

Trivia

(at around 13 mins) An Athenian refers to Spartans as "muscle bound boy lovers," reversing a humorous insult from 300 (2006) which became one of that movie's more famous lines. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 30 mins) In one of the last lines in the movie Themistocles notes that "All of Greece has united against you, Delphi, Thebes, Olympia, Arcadia and Sparta". In fact most of Greece remained neutral and the powerful city state of Thebes was allied with the Persians. It is of course possible Themistocles was simply bluffing, but the tone and finality of the scene implies otherwise. See more »

300
22 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Is it a 300 prequel, sequel, or set concurrently with the events of 300? Yes. It somehow manages to be all of the above, and manages to come up with a story that leads up to the events of the original and sorta what happens afterwards as well as creating a storyline of what was happening at the same time somewhere else. It's also always fun when original actors return in cameos to reprise their roles to give further character backstory especially the "this is madness!" guy who manages to get a quick story arc.
