This film was directed by Noam Murro and stars Sullivan Stapleton as Themistocles, a Greek Naval General. Themistocles leads the Athenians on an epic battle with the Persians at sea against Artemisia, the Persian Navy Commander. I enjoyed the action in this movie. The battle scenes contained a lot of blood which is what I look for in an action adventure historical film. Slow motion was used in the battle scenes. I was a bit confused on the timeline of this movie since it was set around the same time King Leonidas was battling Xerxes. I suppose this could be happening the same time but it left me with some questions. I would recommend it to anyone that likes 300. It is not as good as 300 but I was expecting a lot from watching the first.
