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.
To totally ruin a beautiful quote from holly horror who stole it from LB-user BodyBoy, in reference to…
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…
Vedere 300 è una goduria totale. Una delle pochissime opere in grado di restituire l'epica classica rielaborandola però per i giorni nostri.
An incredible film, full of testosterone, blood and tears. It contains one of the coolest action sequences i have ever seen, although unrealistic, it´s still really enjoyable.
300 is a gruesome action movie which follows an army of 300 taking on a army. Gerad Butler makes you feel embarrassed about yourself with this body showing the entire movie. The action was well chrographed and the effects were good. I was engaged in there story for most the time. But what really knocks the film down is its lack intensity, I wasnt on the edge of my seat or didn't care about any of the charecters. Overall 300 is a good popcorn flick which you can have fun with, but for me I was a little disappointed with it not engaging me like it should have.
this movies trippy
Una patada en la boca del estómago a la historia y al aburrimiento.
I'm a big fan of the iteration Snyder took with this film. A lot of fun, a lot of intensity, and anger, and violence, and AGHHH. 300 was one of the films that really turned me onto the action/comic genre at a younger age.
''THIS IS SPARTA!''
A glorious hybrid of awful. It's surely racist, misogynist, jingoistic, homophobic, revoltingly violent, packed full with (admittedly fun, if you watched it like me) hubris, plagued with a severe shortage of narrative substance as well as visual inconsistency (impressive panel for panel comic Universe recreation from the graphic novel - but those excessive slow-mos and CGI get wearing after a while, man!), and most (or least) important of all, a failure with its historical accuracy... yet it's wholly quotable as evident from its popular culture of internet memes, and damn entertaining. Which is just a drawn out way of me trying to say I'm still a juvenile and I don't even care. I mean, how many other…
3 hundo, 3 starzo
One of the most stylish action movies I have seen but other than that I didn’t find much substance to back it up. Visually it was gorgeous to look at and the film often slowed down sequences to showcase the creative and extremely detailed style. That tended to make some scenes feel unnecessarily long though. The story was fairly thin and the long sequences made the film feel dragged out and I was bored at times. There was no shortage of action but most of it was slow motion gore and up close fighting so after a while even that became repetitive. I know a lot of people seem to love this movie and while I can appreciate its highly stylized appearance, to me it wasn’t good enough to keep me entertained.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
