300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE is a follow-up to the film 300. It tells the story of the Greek general Themistocles as he attempts to unite Greece and defeat the invading armies of the Persian King Xerxes. It is rated 15 for strong bloody violence, strong sex and sexual violence.

There are a number of lengthy battle scenes, which include sight of heads and limbs being cut off. There are also scenes in which soldiers' throats are cut, as well as a moment in which a soldier's head is crushed beneath the hoof of a horse. The scenes are highly stylised in nature, as in the original film, and violence is not presented in a realistic manner.

The film also contains a strong sex scene, featuring breast nudity, in which a man and a woman treat each other roughly.

There is also a scene in which a woman is raped in the distance. The rape is shown in silhouette and there is no visible nudity.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
