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.

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...
