If a good movie is one that satisfies what it's "destined" to be, then the 300 sequel may be called a good movie. We were expecting outlandish historical inspirations in CGI background of men with six-pack abdomens filled with cranberry juice-like fluids that burst upon impact in slow-motion, and that's exactly what we're offered here - except that last time the battles happened on the ground, and this time they're at sea (expect air combat in the third episode). Eva Green makes an interesting villain as Artemesia, the Greek naval commander who joined the Persians, but she's in the wrong movie.
