Lets face it, the action is the main reason anyone’s going to see this movie. From that angle it’s almost as good as 300. However, there were a few scenes that looked like they were pulled out of a video game. Not that the entire movie doesn’t have the video game look but some of the scenes leaned too heavily on CG – like the horse scene near the end of the movie.
If you’re a fan of 300 then I think you’ll like this movie just fine as long as you don’t go in with high expectations.
