There was a huge hype before the realease of 300. Therefore my expectations were high. And the movie reached my expectations. Awesome Movie. You`ve got to see it @ the Theatre.
What ruined it for me, was the lack of true color, and the artificial look it had. As I see it, basically it was animation with real people acting. This type of movie making lacks realism; too computerized, and I couldn`t get into it. Big epics like Bravehart, The Patriot, Troy etc. those are spectacular! This thing was so blah They missed it....to bad it could have been awesome,,,but failed big time....
It was the best war movie I`ve ever seen! It is worth 5 stars. My favourite part is when they do the felix!
This statement is not true, not according to real history: "Historically inaccurate. Yes the Spartans tried to hold back the powerfull Persians, but were pulverized quickly. Then the Persians lost to the Greeks several hundred years later. But great special affects, and the movie did keep you on the edge of your seat. One good thing that came out of that historical event (being conquered and ruled by the Persians)....the Greeks learned how to make baklava and souvlaki (shish kebob).LOL." Please visit the real facts and then post it. Don`t quote your dumb ass father and then put it up on the internet for everyone to see how dumb you are.
I thought that 300 would be extremely stupid because I don`t like war movies where they fight with swords and I don`t like historical movies. It turned out that I really enjoyed it. It was very good. I`m glad that I went to see it even though I didn`t want to. Although, it wasn`t gory enough I thought that it would be more gory. Some things, like the blood, looked really fake.
I expected violence and was prepared for questionable acting. What I didn`t expect was a gratuitous scene of sexual violence. Without spoiling it, let`s just say that one highly unneccesary 30-second scene of sexual violence ruined the entire movie for me. My question is why no one else seems to give a damn about it.
this is the best movie in a long time
Awesome movie! One of the few 2-hour movies I could watch again, and again.
