There are so many things wrong with this film and we will start by the title. Why continue with the title "300?" They died in the last film and this film has nothing to do with them nor with the Spartans that much. Second why "Rise of an Empire"? Which empire? The Persian? They were already an empire. The Athenians? The Spartans? The Greeks? Non of them were Empires so we have a incredibly "stupendous" title.
Moving along to the story of the Battle of Artemisia. I feel that significance of this battle and the fighting force wont be as special as the Battle of Thermopyles was and am also very much afraid that the hyper violence, false sense of reality and history. Might not work as well as it did the first time, as many might hope
