Excerpt: 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?
Summary: 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.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: The story revolves around King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and the 300 Spartans he lead. Persian "god-King" Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) is the main villain. Lacks appropriate character development, an interesting plot and overall the picture felt like a vdeiogame/music video. The dirctor maybeknown for stylish action sequences, it was still a far departure fom the brilliance and entertainment value of Sin City. Lines were too cheesy and conclusion overused.
Summary: I really don't have anything to say about this movie. Visually, it's pretty cool. But literally everything else, from the crappy dialogue to the even worse acting was mediocre at best. Although, McNulty from The Wire is in it, so that has to count for something.
Summary: 300 shows in a very artistic and emotional way what Leonidas and his army of 300 men gave their lives for. If it weren't for them the Persians would have probably conquered ancient Greece and the history of the whole world would be a much different affair. If you are a free man who believes in the principles of ancient Greece, such as freedom of speech and act, you ought to yourself and your children to see this movie.
Summary: This movie teaches patriotism. This is its value, but on the other hand there are a lot of bloody savoring, it is in the negative. Also, minus the fact that, in the film a lot of computer graphics and an element of fantasy that comes at the expense of historical fact the Battle of Thermopylae.
