Spartans, prepare for glory!
Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, "300" is very loosely based the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae, where the King of Sparta led his army against the advancing Persians; the battle is said to have inspired all of Greece to band together against the Persians, and helped usher in the world's first democracy.
THIS IS SPARTA!!!!
Well, no, it isn't. Let me try this.
*clears throat* *deep intake of breath*
'THIS IS A 117 MINUTES OF HOMOEROTIC VISUAL FLUFF IN SLOW MOTION WITH CGI SIXPACKS THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HISTORY WHATSOEVER. THEY WEAR TINY LEATHER PANTS AND CAPES FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!'
Yup, much better.
And yes, you can 'like' a 2 1/2 star film.
Disgusting, racist, misogynistic, jingoistic, mindlessly violent bullshit. Absolute trash. 5 stars.
I once watched this over a dude's shoulder whilst we were doing it. It was considerably better than what was going on IRL.
my fave bit is the bit where keanu reeves goes back in time to be bffs with fassbender.
I feel a little bit ridiculous watching and enjoying this movie, like I'm a little boy seeing something naughty on late night telly, hoping that my mum won't walk in and embarrass me.
It's all so exaggerated and pompous you have to hand it to Snack Zider for pulling it off. I think anyone that doesn't enjoy the 300 on some level is either lying to themselves, lying to others or is just a little dead inside. My advice...embrace your inner child, cut your fruit into small chucks , boogie to the wiggles, snuggle a teddy bear and purchase 300 on Blu-Ray.

Based on Frank Miller's 1998 graphic novel series of the same name, 300 is a fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae between Spartan & Persian armies which also succeeds as a visually arresting tale of bravery, courage & patriotism and brings a comic book to life in such a highly stylized manner that it ends up delivering a unique & ultra-cool cinematic experience to most of its viewers.
If I've to sum it up in a sentence, what actually makes this movie work against all odds is its near-perfect blend of stylish direction from Zack Snyder, engrossing tale of heroism, larger-than-life action, arresting cinematography, groundbreaking visual effects, catchy one-liners, intriguing characters, strong performances from its cast, meticulous sound, cut-throat editing & grandeur soundtrack.…
Review In A Nutshell:
It was obvious that after the release of Robert Rodriguez's adaptation of Frank Miller's Sin City that if it does well at the box office, more of the comic book author's works would be adapted. After the release of 300, it has made quite an impact on the general audience that it has slipped into the cracks of memorable cinema. How many have quoted this film after they have seen it? I certainly have, and I didn't think much of it during initial viewings.
300's plot is simple. Leonidas is the leader of Sparta and his land and citizens are being threatened by King Xerxes, who intends to spread his control to independent lands. Leonidas declares…
Interesting style with realistic effects.
THIS IS SPARTA
Basically, fuck you.
Zack Snyder's 300 is loaded with homo-eroticism, but I'm not gonna sit here and say that's a bad thing. Men wander around with very little in the way of actual clothing and tear their way through ungodly amounts of Persian soldiers. It is pure schlock, hinging heavily on the supposed "manliness" of men tearing through other men.
Gerard Butler isn't very good as Leonidas, a SPARTAN king with a SCOTTISH accent. Although he does the yelling orders and being a sarcastic prick quite well. Lena Headey also has a significant role as Leonidas' wife, and she is her usual terrible self. After Leonidas leaves her to go stab people, whenever we have to go back to her in Sparta the…
Bombastic but stylish and fun fantasy history movie.

300 er en fin film, den er bare flottere end den er fed.
My Snyder marathon continues, with what is likely to be my favourite of his filmography. His unique style works here the best out of any of his films, and Gerard Butler is fantastic. The whole movie is very epic, and while some aspects of the story might be dumb, or don't translate very well from comic to screen, the jaw dropping action and epic one liners make you forget about it and just enjoy the film. I have no intention on seeing the prequel/sequel that came out last year in order to preserve the experience I had watching this film. Today was a good day at the movies.

If you have seen this movie more that twice you may be a homosexual.
