Gory yet visually stunning, 300 is a surprisingly effective retelling of an ancient battle.

Never seen it but heard the end when I was waiting for some girl to come out the pictures in me cab, sounded good! HOW MAD IS THAT?!

A very enjoyable war movie that I have found eminently re-watchable. There is witty dialogue and some memorable scenes. The story is loosely accurate historically and my pet peeves with it revolve around how accurate. The Spartans in reality would have been wearing chest and leg armor which is what made them so hard to kill against lightly armed Persians. But of course armor gets in the way of physique. There were 5000 Greek forces by all accounts, including 100 Spartan slaves, of which 300 were the elite Spartan core that stayed and sacrificed itself on the last day as a final delaying action. Not including the slaves is a missed opportunity meant to glorify the Spartans more than they deserved. While the immortals were the Persian elite forces, they were called that due to the fact that whenever a division got destroyed in battle the Persian King would immediately reconstitute it back home. If you like a thrilling action movie done in an epic style, good memorable dialogue, a war movie with lots of graphic violence, immersion into an ancient historical setting, and a reasonable plot with some thought provoking content then I strongly recommend this movie.

Marvelously bloody experience

As every Snyder movie, 300 is a beautiful show of technic stuff, as slow motion and especial effects, with a great dark atmosphere.
But lacks of coherence and it seems you are watching a fantasy movie instead of a historical movie (i can say the same for Miller's graphic novel)
Although is a great adaptation of the mentioned Miller's work, fails in telling the story to the people, watching the spartans fight for a weak purpose and the persians portrayed as the bad guys fighting the "heroes" whose purpose is even more weak.
A movie to entertain, nothing else.

Stylish to a fault and occasionally stirring, 300's emphasis of style over substance unfortunately can't help but make it feel fake.

A visually exciting epic experience!

Very good, full of action and extremely good acting skills by the likes of Gerard Butler. Not to be missed! ??

300, is from the director Zack Snyder. First off, this is a visually exciting experience which is flawlessly amazing, full of blood action and violence and ready made dialogue. However, it does go too much over style rather than substance, telling a cohesive story. As the film progresses, it is very repetitive, with repetitive action and heavy exposition scenes which kept me bored and having the desire to see a lot more bloody action and uninterested at the central story and characters, conflict. Overall, 300 is all about great visuals and bloody action, definitely not heavily historically inspired and expelling certain plots and story lines.

Brilliant. It is just so intense, yet witty in some places.

Short on substance but grand in storytelling, 300 is atmospheric pleasure.

Intense, violent, and fun, 300 benefits heavily from its r-rating and a strong leading performance from Gerard Butler. Historical inaccuracies aside, this is, in the words of Craig Ferguson, "A great f*cking movie".

Gerard Butler and Lena Headey are superb, David Wenham provides excellent narration, the action is highly stylized and violent, Tyler Bates's score is glorious, and Zack Snyder is at his best.

It should be 301 because it was 300 spartans and him

It's faithfully adapted in it's visual style, but despite the graphic violence the story has been toned down from Miller's brutal depiction of the Spartans as a society. There is a more distinctive sense of brotherhood & 'every man is equal' about Snyder's vision, yet despite this & the over-use of slowmotion in all the fight scenes (if not the whole film), it's a brilliant film to watch with a very simple yet effective story.

Really nice cinematography and story telling. I love the detail in the battle scenes too
