300

Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel, using the same greenscreen-heavy look of Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City (of which Miller also wrote) – 300 is a big, violent war epic revolving around the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae, where the King of Sparta led his army of 300 against the advancing Persians. Despite losing the battle, their heroics inspire all of Greece to band together against the Persians. The historic battle, and its repercussions, would ultimately give birth to the modern concept of democracy.

Another movie -- Matt Stone and Trey Parker's "Team America," whose wooden puppets were more compelling actors than most of the cast of 300 -- calculated the cost [of freedom] at $1.05. I would happily pay a nickel less, in quarters or arcade tokens, for a vigorous 10-minute session with the video game that 300 aspires to become...

300 is a movie blood-drunk on its own artful excess. Guys of all ages and sexes won't be able to resist it...

That it's so flat as an action movie probably has a lot to do with why people might prefer to jawbone over its putatively controversial aspects--there's really not much of a “wow” factor to revel in...

300 is something to see, but unless you love violence as much as a Spartan, Quentin Tarantino or a video-game-playing teenage boy, you will not be endlessly fascinated...

300 is a feast for the senses (well, two of them anyway) and an impressive technical achievement. More than that, it's a hell of a lot of fun...

Visually stunning, thoroughly belligerent and as shallow as a pygmy’s paddling pool, this is a whole heap of style tinged with just a smidgen of substance...

300 is not a complicated film. It's going to be widely ridiculed and rightly so, because viewed with the slightest critical distance it becomes extremely funny, but taken on it's own terms - as Greek myth meets Looney Tunes - it's kind of a masterpiece...

In 480BC around the time of the ‘Iron age’ Persian King Xerxes sent his massive army to conquer the lands of Greece. One such part of this land was the city of Sparta ruled by King Leonidas. Sparta, was a city renowned for its warriors, brave and trained to be fearless in the face of imminent doom. Leonidas takes a stand (albeit a suicidal one) against...

What a great visual experience, it was great to see an ancient battle portrayed in a graphic and fantasical style. The actor that played the King of Sparta had a great screen presence which made you not notice that there was about 300 fight scenes in the movie and a weak plot. I wouldn't recomend this to people who's favourite genres are romantic comedies...

Gripping and visually stunning - loved the passion and powerful characters - yet not so gory to be over the top as so many movies can be. Definitely worth seeing. Dee

Yay. Who doesn't want to see their man fighting it out for His wife and country. Let alone 300 of them. Passionate, commited and with a purpose. This movie was all guts and bravado, fantasy with a smidgeon of historic reference. Which someone should have told me as I was expecting another 'Gladiator'. Once I figured out it was supposed to be a fantasy,...

This movie is old world epic. With all the drama, pomp, arrogance, brawn and intrigue of ancient Greece. Ladies will appreciate the hot bods of the rugged Spartan men. Koorrr blimey! Guys will love the gorey, graphic battle scenes that make up much of the movie. Great use of slow mo and new film techniques mean they don't get boring. The love story and...

300 was ok - looks great, but its also unintentionally very funny. However, I've heard a lot about the 'politics' of the movie from people who've seen it. They see a metaphor for US v Iraq - and that the film is pro-war. Whilst it's hard to argue against it being pro-war - it certainly hypes it up - I don't at all see how the story favours the US...

Whaaaaaaaaat? This is not that good a film, and certainly not 'perfect'. Over dramatic - style over substance. And laughable in most parts. Has an appeal in its 'naff-ness', but only mildly entertaining.
