Our instinctual desire to sneer at the implausibility of the story is stalled by a sense of ambition that seems unmatched even by the standards of the Hollywood assembly line.

So manly it makes Troy look like a Mary-Kate and Ashley adventure.

Time Out Chicago

Wallowing in the same adolescent nihilism as his Sin City, this adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel suffers from a similar lack of momentum.

Future Movies UK

As the first blockbuster of the year, 300 sets the bar high enough, and is enjoyably silly.

Despite a cracking central premise and outstanding visuals, 300 ultimately leaves you feeling more gutted than some of the disemboweled soldiers on display throughout the movie.

If 300 represents an evolution in 'virtual' cinema, then at the same time it tells a story that transports us back to the violent roots of western civilisation.

[Snyder] twists the brawn and battle into a cartoonish FX extravaganza with severed body parts and globules of blood flying across the screen.

300 is a fun-fest of blood, mayhem, and absurdity. At its best, it is entertaining; when it's not at its best, it's pretty dumb. It's pretty dumb much of the time.

300 has one-dimensional caricatures who talk like professional wrestlers plugging their next feud.

Zack Snyder's film version of the graphic novel by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley may look like the greatest music video ever made; whether or not it is a decent feature film is another question altogether.

This is death and war as ancient poets might have imagined it, glorious and provocative ... 300 is a powerhouse actioner.

Washington City Paper

All this bellowing and testosterone gets old fast -- especially since there's not much of a plot outside of the combat scenes, and the not-much-of-a-plot scenes are laden with dialogue worthy of Anakin and Padmé.

The look and feel of this historic battle is perfect for the virtual backgrounds and obscene violence. Again, trust me on the violence.

300 is an orgy of gore, a blood-letting on a titanic scale, a ballet of butchery in which half-naked men and the torrents of blood they elicit move in perfect, slow-motion choreography to a thunderous soundtrack. And I loved every minute of it.

I still wish David Wenham weren't the narrator, but everything else about the movie is a brutal kind of hypnotic that keeps me coming back.
