The brawny tale of 300 mighty committed warriors of long ago Sparta
Interesting viewing of a history long into the past of a war torn society of Sparta. The culture, the free loving , courageous citizens who wanted a peaceful existance at the cost of a few hundred brave, sacrificing souls who's heart and soul breathed their motherland.To quote Leonidas,"This is Sparta! A rough life for a tough people. I purchased this dvd because of the actor, Gerard Butler. I wasn't aware of who he was until a friend lent me the movie Phantom of the Opera. I was hooked.

THIS IS SPARTA!
Are you kidding me? Only someone with poor taste would give this movie a poor score. The direction is great, the gritty style and the bits of computer animation don't over do it. Even though there were a few more than 300 warriors, it's a great fantasy movie. The characters are brilliant. I even love the Persian God King. All those piercings...and how tall he was! WOW! This movie does have a lot of blood and some nudity, but nothing too terribly bad. It's got enough action and pretty ladies to entice the guys, but not overly perverse to offend the girls. I can watch this movie over and over. It's BRILLIANT! I also named my kitty Sparta after this movie I loved it so much!

A wonderful story, to be sure, and fit for re-telling, which in modern times means film. In 1962, The 300 Spartans was released, featuring a very buff Richard Egan as Leonidas. Although it suffered from many of the flaws of the worst sword-and-sandal epics of that era, it attempted to recreate faithfully the politics, diplomacy, and military events that actually were part of the Thermopylae story. Now we have 300, a truly modern bit of movie-making that combines live actors playing against a digitized background.
To judge this film's adherence to historical fact (insofar as we understand it) is to do it a disservice, for the film does not even pretend to be historically accurate. It is based on a graphic novel developed by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley, whose previous credits are mainly as comic book and graphic novel writers and illustrators. This film version of Miller and Varley's graphic novel is the inspiration of director and co-writer Zack Snyder, who is said to have been deeply moved both by his childhood viewing of the 1962 The 300 Spartans and by the Miller-Varley graphic novel. Miller's influence on Snyder appears to be profound. In the on-line production notes for the film Snyder is quoted as saying "Frank took an actual event and turned it into mythology, as opposed to taking a mythological event and turning it into reality." That vision clearly absolves the filmmaker from any pretense of historical accuracy. In brief, this is a comic book version of Thermopylae writ large, utilizing all of the tricks of virtual reality and digitized magic. This film is not even science fiction, a genre based on an extension of reality. In fact, 300 is one step removed from sci-fi: it is fantasy. In a recent review of Oliver Stone's Alexander epic, I suggested that there was a difference between historical inaccuracies based on ignorance and sloppy research, and deviations from historical accuracy based upon the film maker's artistic vision: 300 falls into the latter category.Read full review

This is a great movie. It probably isn't a movie that you would let a little kid watch, because it has alot of blood and gore in it. Alot of the movie is actually true, like at the beginning when it tells how the spartans became warriors and other parts of the movie. It will tell you what parts are true and what parts are fiction in the special features area of the DVD. This movie follows the story of king Leonidas (from birth to death). In the movie the so called gods want let Sparta raise an army to face the Persian invaders lead by god-king Xerxes. So King Leonidas takes 300 of his best soldiers to face the invaders. When he finally meets Xerxes, Xerxes thinks that he can not be defeated or even feel pain. So king Leonidas promises him that he will feel pain. Although this movie doesn't have any big name actors, they play their parts amazingly well. I would definatly recommend this movie if you are a fan of action packed movies. If you are the type that gets sick easily when you see alot of blood or body parts flying every where, this probably isn't the movie for you.Read full review
