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 Gargantuan Media

Goofs

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 »

Disappointing
8 March 2014 | by sophiebo88See all my reviews

Waste of money!!

I've never felt compelled to leave a review before but my Husband and I were both very disappointed with this film after both really enjoying the first 300 movie.

I was totally bored 15 minutes in but was hoping for something interesting to happen- it never happened!

I felt like it was all action/graphics but no story line, the entire film was people getting killed with swords in slow motion, ships bashing into each other like the dodgems and then there was Sullivan Stapleton's bad British accent which was a mixture between British, American and Australian.
