Rotten: 300 is about as violent as Apocalypto and twice as stupid.

Fresh: Does the film stay faithful to the Miller and Varley's vision? Indeed it does -- to a kunch!

Rotten: 300 was as pathetically puerile as I had expected.

This movie was awesome. It has some really cool fight scenes and really good dialogue. I think this movie uses slow motion too much though. I also think this movie is a little overated. I was going to give this 3 1/2 stars but i did really enjoy the movie so im going to bump it up half a star. Grade: B+

(I'm bumping my original score down a bit, to what I feel is more accurate.) My opinion of this movie has changed over the last few months. I now see clearly that the battles weren't as amazing as I originally thought, the characters were as one dimensional as they can be, and I was left extremely unsatisfied with the ending. Yes, I know the Spartans had meet that particular destiny, but the way they did was totally weak, in my opinion. Now that all the negativity is out of the way, I did in fact enjoy 300. Everyone else here has already gushed about the visuals, so I'll just add that they are in fact as good as everyone says. Good dialogue (if appropriately over the top) that was pretty funny at times, and a few (though not enough) excellent action sequences. And Lena Headey had the most badass part in the whole movie, I love that woman.

A great entertaining film, with plenty of action and a very impressive visual style similar to Sin City. Although the fights are great, very violent the use of CGI blood effects gave it quite a comic book feel and help tone the gore side down a bit. The story is very simple and to the point, not a deep film it is all about the battles and the visuals. Great if you liked Troy, Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven but some viewers might want a bit more story to break up all the action. However it's definitely worth experiencing!
