300: Rise Of An Empire
Warner TV HD, HyppTV Ch 613, 11.35pm
This is not Sparta. OK, fine, there are bits and pieces of Sparta in this movie, with some of Athens and other parts of Greece as well. But what you should know is 300: Rise Of An Empire is not exactly a sequel to 300, but rather, about the rise of Xerxes to the Persian throne, and his invasion of Greece. The hero this time is statesman-turned-soldier Themistocles, who attempts to unite all of Greece against Xerxes and his naval commander, the seductive, vindictive and ambitious Artemisia.
