Follow up to Zack Snyder's 300, taking place before, during and after the events of the 2007 original.

It's flesh and carnage that the audience is here to see, and Murro delivers it by the glistening ton.

Both bloody and dull, even if camply entertaining.

Ridiculously violent and cartoonish installment.

The foot-in-mouth direlogue is an Achilles’ heel, but this campy gore-opera is bursting with guilty pleasures.
