Why 5th place – this movie beat out other Greek movies like Immortals, Percy Jackson, and Hercules, but for all it’s strengths it is a sequel that relies on too much knowledge of the original. In this case it is both a benefit and a curse, we loved that it mimicked 300 so much, but it lost its own identity in the process.
With 300: Rise of an Empire in theaters, our group of movie lovers voted for what we thought was the best Greek movie. For our discussion, we included movies that are based in Greek history and movies that are based in Greek mythology. The difference being Alexander would be Greek History, and Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief would be considered a movie based in Greek mythology. We are basing our ranking on enjoyment and movie longevity.
|Beware of Greek movies bearing bad history and jingoistic subtexts|
