I was able to watch 300 early last week. Well the movie was fantastic! It was very nice. I loved the adrenaline-rush fight scenes. Way back in highschool, the 300 Spartans led by Leonidas was one of the most memorable events I could remember in world history. Their courage is well admired by many.
While the fight scenes are very enjoyable for young people, I would like to comment on the characters in the movie. Though I know that this is based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel I didn’t like the way the Persians were portrayed. Monsters? Oh come on. Plus take a look at Xerxes. Is he gay or something? lol. In my opinion the Persians in this movie were complete FREAKS!!! The colors of the actual film were dull to. Perhaps the result of too much computer graphics.
But I still loved the movie just because of the fight scenes (which they made extra cool for the youth) and for the fact that I liked the story of Leonidas in world history back in Highschool. I still have some hangovers of the movie.
“Spartans prepare for Glory – Ahu! Ahu! Ahu!”. Coolness.
My Rating: 8/10
On my next post I’ll be putting up some trivia coming from Reuters.
