QUICK TAKE:
Action: A Greek naval commander tries to rally his men to battle and ward off a Persian invasion to save their country.
PLOT:
It's 480 B.C. and Persian king Xerxes (RODRIGO SANTORO) is intent on ruling all lands but must contend with Spartan king Leonidas (GERARD BUTLER) and his small but formidable army of 300 men who battle the much larger Persian army on land. At the same time, Xerxes' naval commander, the Greek-born but now Greek-hating Artemisia (EVA GREEN), has plans to destroy the Greek fleet, something that doesn't sit well with Themistokles (SULLIVAN STAPLETON). He's the Greek leader who years earlier killed Xerxes' father-king in battle and thus indirectly caused the transformation of that warrior into the god-king he's now become.

While Themistokles can't convince Queen Gorgo (LENA HEADEY) of Sparta to commit forces to help them battle the Persians, he is able to assemble an array of farm hands, artists and such who now battle by his side. That includes the father-son duo of Scyllias (CALLAN MULVEY) and Calisto (JACK O'CONNELL). Outnumbered in terms of both ships and men, Themistokles nevertheless sails into battle against the ruthless Artemisia and her fleet, with the future of Greece hanging in the balance.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they liked the original "300," they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong sustained sequences of stylized bloody violence throughout, a sex scene, nudity and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
