300 (2007)

  • Conclusion: What more is there to say about 300 that hasn't already been said? It has the distinction of being one of the most divisive, beautiful, and faithful comic-to-film adaptations of all time, and has continued to build upon its surprising box office success with a hungry home video fanbase. The Complete Experience is an answer to prayers to some and a shameless double-dip to others. But regardless of where you stand, this Blu-ray release is impressive.

  • Excerpt: "300" is the historical tale of when few stood against many, in the face insurmountable odds; they refused to take a backwards step. It is a story that takes every red blooded male back to their most primal and instinctive base. Where the time for words is past and the time for action comes to the fore.

  • Conclusion: This is a fantastic package.  This HD DVD boasts a thrilling, exciting movie with an absolutely gorgeous transfer and a powerful yet accurate soundtrack.  On top of that there are copious extras.  Not fluffy HBO behind-the-scenes pieces but substantial featurettes that explain how the film was made, look into the historical background of the story, and reveal what the creators were trying to accomplish.

  • Conclusion: '300' is all CGI sturm and drang , a piece of Greek myth-making so bold, in-your-face and pummeling one is reminded of that famous line from 'Gladiator' -- "are you not entertained!?" For me, '300' has about as much heart as the Tin Man, but as far as CGI action-porn goes, it just doesn't get any better than this. This is also a very fine Blu-ray release.

  • Conclusion: Spear thrusts, battle cries and erupting blood become artwork in 300. What makes it fun to watch, beyond the technical prowess of the filmmaker, is the value placed on freedom and the way the testosterone is dedicated to fighting tyranny and slavery. Beyond that, 300 is about a real people and a real battle. It tells a story. If you've followed my reviews, you may be wondering how I could praise 300 but find Apocalypto to be abysmal.

  • Summary: Frank Miller's beloved interpretation of the Battle of Thermopylae is given the "Sin City" treatment with wildly mixed results.

  • Excerpt: Let’s get something straight about 300 right off the bat. This is not a movie about brave rebels fighting against some oppressive regime to safeguard freedom and democracy. When King Leonidas shouts “For freedom!” he’s not talking about truth, justice, and the American way. It’s mostly just jargon tossed into the trailers and the film for dim, easily manipulated people who get overly excited when they hear propaganda thrown around, you know, the type who aren’t big on...

  • Excerpt: From the moment the emphatic opening narration begins, 300 is full of exclamation points. Admittedly, it's worthy of them—the story of the Battle of Thermopylae, where 300 Spartans and a sparse group of allies held the line against a vast army for several crucial days, lends itself to fabulist hyperbole, especially in the hands of Sin City writer-artist Frank Miller.

  • Conclusion: Visually stunning, thoroughly belligerent and as shallow as a pygmy’s paddling pool, this is a whole heap of style tinged with just a smidgen of substance.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
5 April 2007
  • Excerpt: A gourmet for the purest of action fans, "300" is a visual feast. It doesn't concede to that typical movie concept whereby our heroes find themselves vastly outnumbered only to overcome insurmountable odds. Amidst all the testosterone and glistening abdominal muscles, it still does well to conjure inspiration and give substance to the brave three hundred's valour and sacrifice. It's brutal, but ultimately moving.
