Bad Girls: Artemisia – 300: Rise of an Empire
The point of this newest feature here at Bulletproof Action is to try and look at the “villain” from their perspective. Sometimes, the so-called “bad girl”, isn’t as bad as she seems.
Early on in her life, Artemisia was met with grief, sorrow, death; her family lay slain before her, killed by the very Greek soldiers that they had grown to respect. Her life, spiraling into a hellish nightmare of slavery, torture, and rape at the hands of the Greeks, had begun to create a new person within her. On the day she was left to die, broken and bleeding on the cobbled stone, she had finally relented. That was until she was taken into the protection of a Persian emissary and taught the ways of war. Now, years later, she commands the vessels of war put forth by the God-King Xerxes. Her voice is heard loudly amongst the most influential men of Persia and she holds the honor of leading the Great Xerxes’ army into battle as they invade Greece. Few men can match her skills with a blade and even fewer can resist her beauty.
Artemisia interrogates a Greek spy.
Apparently the director thought there was too much dude in the movie so this scene quickly turns from this….
