Exploitation and objectification, done right ;every is character thoroughly stereotyped and exploited. Nearly naked white men with thoroughly shaved bodies and un-shaven faces battle Arabs, monsters, ninjas, gays, and more monsters.
This movie is exciting and visually thrilling. But more importantly, I think it should be defended on the front that poor writing brought about the constant "professional wrestler" quotes. Many of those one-liners are real, historical quotes--humorous and simple, profound but quick words shared by the Spartans who believed that the Athenians were not the only Greek philosophers. 300 is based on an excellent comic book--literature with at least one subtle foreshadowing and metaphor (more than many of the movies that have a higher RT score). I don't think this is the greatest movie of the year, but it is certainly more than pulp film.
Terrible, horrible movie. Nothing but a crappy CGIfest with no plot. There was this amazing historical plot they could have followed, but nope. Let's put monsters and mutants and general crap in it. Not following reality is not why it is terrible though, it is just a bad movie. Neglecting the historical truth is just the craptastic cherry on the top.
In recognition of me getting my 300th Facebook friend...I thought I'd try to watch this film again. Wow...2007...has it been that long since it came out?! It's a better film than I remembered...despite it's sepia-toned CGI. A testament to courage and holding to principle until the end.
let's see scantily clad attractive muscular sweating guys, who might want to see that? ok, let's say it was not intended for gays ut it was intended for gays nevertheless. i started laughing out loud when that dawned on me somewhere near the end of the film. it also occurred to the makers of "welcome to sparta" obviously.
