Movie Info

A colorful action film about the Battle Of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. in which the Spartans defend themselves for a Persian invasion against overwhelming odds. King Leodinas (Richard Egan) rallies the locals to stop the attack of thousands of plundering Persian invaders led by evil King Xerxes (David Farrar). Sir Ralph Richardson as Themistocles of Athens leads the international cast this the spectacular cinematic conflict that has more emphasis on action rather than historical accuracy. ~ Dan

As sword-and-sandal films go, 'The 300 Spartans' is a good one, but don't expect hard-edged action and graphic violence of the '300' sort.

The battles seem more realistic because they are done essentially like a stage play in real time. This requires real skill and training.

Tecnicamente eficiente (especialmente no que diz respeito aos figurinos), o filme dilui sua fascinante base histórica em romances proibidos, diálogos superficiais e batalhas desinteressantes.

The poor Spartans, all 300 of them, are in a supercilious film.

Never mind the slight slow points and somewhat repetitive battle scenes. This is an original, interesting and entertaining story with very strong characters, fairly good production and directing and surprisinly impressive action sequences. It is a truly underrated and entertaining classic.

It inspired Frank Miller to write and draw "300". That's the only nice thing I can say about this long, dull, pretentious, plodding, and dated epic.
