Good review. You can basically throw out the entire movie, save Eva Green's batshit performance. She's so great. She goes all in, even though the movie and part are patently ridiculous. I love her. She embraces crazy, out-there roles the same way Nic Cage does. Give it everything you've got. Never look like you're just ho-humming your way through a movie. I'd watch this again just to watch her scowl, belittle, and yell at everyone else.

Worth it for topless Eva alone.

I quite enjoyed this movie. I don't see how you couldn't if you liked the first one.
I agree with most people that the "good guys" aren't nearly as interesting as Leonidas and crew...but they are serviceable. The action was fantastic, the FX top notch, and above all else, Eva Green was amazing. I wish the movie had the balls to truly make it HER movie though...then it could have really been something special.

Wow. Harsh movie review. I saw this in the theater and enjoyed it just about as much as the first. I'm glad that they stuck to the exact style & flow of the first. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Yes Leonidas was a stronger lead in the 1st one but he was a king, only fitting he be a commanding charismatic leader. And yes Eva Green steals the show in spades. (The seduction scene is worth the price of admission & popcorn alone). I would say if you liked the first you should find this just as entertaining even if it's not exactly at the same level in all aspects. 8 out of 10 in my book. (I'd give the first an 8.5 out of 10).

I'll tell you right now, from the trailers I had zero desire to see it. Seeing Eva Green yell out on the ship(?) I think it was made me laugh at the absurdity. I may have to rent this one.
