Review: 300

3002.jpg

I have been waiting for this movie since I heard about it. This movie about the Spartans versus the Persians in early times before the Romans. It revolves around 300 Spartans led by King Leonidas who went to Hells Gate to hold the Persians at the coast of Greece. The Spartans are true trained warriors making all other fighters look like amateurs. This movie depicts the intensity with which they believed in Sparta and their conviction in it. King Leonidas is a man you would be honored to serve, and in this movie they are pitted against a monster of an enemy but they still fight. This 300 put fear in the hearts of thousands of the Persian soldiers.

This movie is directed by the same person who directed Sin City and has this different feeling to it then most movies, what is amazing about this movie is that it makes the Battle scenes in Troy look like they were nothing. It also turns out their bodies are the real thing and not touched up. This movie is only 117 minutes look but it feels so short, the battle scenes are so exhilirating it gets your blood pumping. You have certain characters you like, and you get a feeling for the life of Sparta but your senses are completely taken over by the action of these 300 hundred against the monster of an army in front of them. This movie brings history to life, so much amazing action, and you really are enamored by everything in this movie. It has been added as one my favorite movies I have seen period.

    the movie was kickass,no doubt. Especially the beheading scenes, they looked so real. this is sparta!!

  2. frank miller is a big comics writer he’s the same person who wrote
    civil war (comics) , elecktra (comics), sin city (comics)
    he’s the director of sin city 1,2,3 RIGHT
    but he’s not the director of this movie
    300 is a movie based on a comic book he wrote & published black horse comics.

  12. “This movie brings history.”

    Well, I certainly won’t use this movie as a visual aid for a history presentation concerting the Spartans and the Persian; especially since they made the Persians like monsters and “so-pure evil”. However, I do believe this was an intension from the director because he wanted it to make this historical event symbolic and stylized as much possible. Again, the movie is a major step up for art, stunt, and fight scenes direction but when it comes to other areas (i.e. acting, story) it kinda fail. So, this movie is far from perfect in my opinion so I’m glad you gave it a 4.5 = A-.

  13. Sin: hell yeah!

    Zombie Commando: oh ok! I thought he was, I must’ve mixed it up! Thanks for the clear up!

    no3ik: loooool! Please keep his butt to yourself! hehehe! I think this movie puts Troy to shame, one hell of a movie! That is why I refused to watch in the theaters! So much better with the version I had, I think its even better then even cinema quality!

    Nora: Soooo good! You HAVE TO watch it!

    Sami: SPAARTAAANNNSSSS!!!!

    Mark: I agree, and we gotta watch it again!

    Sin: hahahaha! THIS IS SPARRTAAAAA!!!!!

    Amo0ora: I loved it! I can give it to you on DVD if you want, just shoot me an email! :)

    Laialy: Leonidas is KING! the SPARTAN KING!

    DiiGMaa: I will have a Sparta Poster on my wall! It was just amazing! I can’t believe this movie ended so quickly! It was amazing, I can’t get enough of it!

    Financy: I agree with you, but the 5 out of 5 were great epic movies .. and this was just as amazing, but still the 5 out of 5 has to be reserved! Its hard not to give it the 5 out of 5, but the acting needed just alittle nudge, King Leonidas didn’t need anything he was nothing short of perfect!

    Angelo: I would definatly show it in a history class! They would love it for sure! It would keep things interesting and it was a bit fictionaly yet very entertaining! :)

    Although i loved the movie for the sheer entertainment aspect of it, i found the representation of the east as barbaric, savage and ugly freedom-opposed beings disgusting.

    It is ‘Orientalism’ all over again. ‘http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orientalism’

    I can understand if naive westerners fall for the subliminal messages of the movie, but it saddens me to see you guys admiring the movie for more than its worth. If you don’t know what orientalism is, i beg you to read the wiki.
