REVIEW: 300: Rise Of An Empire

REVIEW: 300: Rise Of An Empire

There is one reason and one reason only to see this : Eva Green. Best known as a Bond girl, after “300: Rise Of An Empire”, she will forever be known for one of the most outrageous sex scenes ever. Or, should I refer to it as a battle scene.  This is definitely NOT making love. This sex is making WAR. Eva Green is beyond fierce as the battle-leading Artemisia. She is deliciously sinister and makes everyone else on screen  fade into the background.  And that’s hard to do considering the  beyond perfectly chiseled  body after  body after body. I’m talking  both sexes. The  nudity starts maybe 30 seconds into the film.

Like “300”,  this movie lives by  CGI.  Unlike  “300”,  this time the humans look real, not  CGI-cartoonized.  That was my problem with “300”. The  digitized bodies.

The prequel is frenetically  gory. So if you’re gonna  take it in, do it right : in 3-D and Imax.

I promise: you will never forget Eva Green.
