I give it 300 stars… out of a possible 500.
Some of the action sequences were pretty good, and there were some nice lines, but it felt like there was too much in between, and there wasn’t much I hadn’t seen done better elsewhere. Xerxes may be about the hottest thing ever, so hot I’m going to link to that picture again right now.
Verdict: Rent Sin City and watch that again; Rodriguez is a superior director and the action is more tightly packed. But also look at pictures of Xerxes on the internet.
