Little heft to the narrative, but it's hard not to be entertained by this action and CGI filled epic.

The story is about a giant Persian army approaches the coast of Greece and 300 Spartans rise up to protect their country and their people. This movie has beautiful cinematography and Bad-ass action and characters in the movie.

As silly as it is stylish, 300 is a sporadically engaging film.

This was the cinematic equivalent of the Macarena. An example of filmmaking that was so dam popular but it vanished as soon as it arrived and if anyone brings it up, they are seen as out of touch or weird.
Remind me again why this movie is so popular? Sure it's got some good action scenes but so does every Michael Bay film ever yet he's as hated as Hitler. Is it cuz of the story? A bunch of closeted exercise junkies didn't want to share their pad with the new neighbors? Give me a break. Is it the acting? Yelling and screaming like a WWE announcer does not equal an Oscar worthy performance. If that was the case then Daniel Day Lewis should give back his 3rd one.
What kills me most is how psychopathic, xenophobic, and fascistic the living conditions are in Sparta but they're seen as …

When the corrupt oracles rule that Sparta should not be defended against the oncoming Persian army, King Leonidas leads an army of 300 warriors to defend their lands. In other words a dozen male strippers hack away in slow motion at a collection of CGI circus freaks and a giant drag queen for two solid hours. And that's it. Plot development? Nope. Characterisation? Nada. Meaningful dialogue? Zip. If anything, 300 is like a historical Ultraviolet, except instead of plastic sci fi cliches spouting techno-gibberish it just resembles a collection of Bill and Ted's album covers brought to life linked by a load of macho posturing in cod Olde Worlde speak. It's an adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel so there is some nice imagery and well framed shots in deference to his vision, but I …

This movie suffers the unfortunate fate of being too popular in that, like scar face and taxi driver before it the lines and scenes have become go ingrained into pop culture that the original movie seems itself cliche and played out. But on the up side, things like that really do only happen when something is so good every one and their mother wants to parody it. There is an entire movie made just to parody this one and that's got to be saying something. This was really new for it's time when it came out. Combining history, action and CGI in the ways only a top blockbuster action would was really a first. Though the truth of the story is quite stretched it's still a fairly epic tale. I could certainly recommend the watch to anyone who wasn't already warped by the amount of parody done …
