i like the characters..
Developed from a mockumentary trailer uploaded to youtube, this is a spoof film based on the spartans who defended the goatpath as described in the 2007 Lionsgate film 300.
Original, funny and witty, this film serves the purpose that comedy films must serve at a basic level, which for amateur aspiring filmmakers, is a great achievement.
This will properbly be cult for some, and plain idiotic for others, I found it to be stupid but also fun, mothing special at all though.
Simply borrowing the approach used in The Office and transplanting it onto a Spartan war would have been amusing (for about 3 minutes on youtube, I'd imagine) but such creative backflips are beyond the reach of the people behind 305, and instead they opt to shamelessly rip off The Office, taking entire characters out of the show and strapping them into a leather codpiece and cape. We see a man doing a fairly decent Rainn Wilson impersonation (which eventually becomes irritating) and someone doing a less decent John Krasinski impersonation (which is baffling considering he's the straight guy), the other three cast members are too vague and uninteresting to possibly be stolen from somewhere else, so I will credit the talents of the film-makers for these characters.
It's a one joke concept (someone else's joke, no less) that is implausibly stretched out to 90 minutes of painful runtime. I thought Meet the Spartans was as unimaginative and dull as the 300 concept could be lowered to, but this movie lacks even the cutting insight to make relentless gay jokes.
Save yourself the bother (not that any of you would be stupid enough to waste your time on this crap) and simply have a bowl of peaches & cream, whilst watching a bare knuckle boxer from Michigan punch a beagle in the face.
