I loved the art direction and cinematography in this film. Lots of interesting camera angles, and plenty of slow-motion and stop-action fighting that reminded me of Hero.
But 300 is what it is, a bunch of half-naked Greeks getting their fight on.
If you decide to see 300, please don’t be like the people at the Regal Theatre on Friday night and bring your kids to see this! The movie is Rated R for a reason. I’m talking closeup-on-severed-head-spinning-in-the-air-type-Rated-R. So get a sitter, or your kids will be fucked up. I mean, worse than they already are…
