Somebody give Rourke something to eat before he chews all the scenery. Just terrible flim that thinks slow motion bloodshed is still hip. Cast pretty well uniformly awful matched by the script and direction. So tired of these empty spectacles masquerading as films. Tarsem Singh is total flash and has had a diminishing career since his early video work. Predict his snow white pic next year will be just as bad.
A visually stunning, almost spiritual sequel to 300. Henry Cavill turns in a solid performance as Theseus and Mickey Rourke does his fair share of scenery chewing as King Hyperion. The film's strongest area is not in the performances, but by the amazing imagery by Tarsem. The effects were solid and the action gory so if you like your sword and sandals epic with a lot of blood, check this one out.
