There is one reason and one reason only to see this : Eva Green. Best known as a Bond girl, after “300: Rise Of An Empire”, she will forever be known for one of the most outrageous sex scenes ever. Or, should I refer to it as a battle scene. This is definitely NOT making love. This sex is making WAR. Eva Green is beyond fierce as the battle-leading Artemisia. She is deliciously sinister and makes everyone else on screen fade into the background. And that’s hard to do considering the beyond perfectly chiseled body after body after body. I’m talking both sexes. The nudity starts maybe 30 seconds into the film.
Like “300”, this movie lives by CGI. Unlike “300”, this time the humans look real, not CGI-cartoonized. That was my problem with “300”. The digitized bodies.
The prequel is frenetically gory. So if you’re gonna take it in, do it right : in 3-D and Imax.
I promise: you will never forget Eva Green.
