” … tonight we dine in Hell !! “

Those were the words that captivated me from the trailer.

To me 300 was a great movie. Though it might be considered a very simplistic, “for blood and glory” movie, I believe it was done really well. Plus the cinematography was absolutely breath taking.

300 takes us back to about 500 years before the birth of Christ to a time when men who dreamed of conquering the world — at least what was known of it — could actually do so. At that time, the all powerful conqueror was Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), a man whose ego may have been the only thing bigger than his substantial army. As Xerxes made his way across the Mediterranean leaving subjugated peoples in his wake, he set his sights on Greece.

The fight scenes were brilliant, probably the best I have ever seen. Yes they were gruesome also, but some of the unbelievable. I can’t even imagine how they were able to pull them off. Must watch a “Behind the Scenes” special or something.

The way the people moved really looked like they were part of a superior army. Always in shape and form, ready to strike, kill, and defend. Except for one scene, where the guy didn’t watch his back. Not a good move in times of war.

Even without much clothes they look absolutely awesome. Usually you need some sort of armor to even remotely look cool. These guys didn’t need that. Especially when they lunged at their enemies, in all manners of form!

I wonder how many people would be interested in ancient history now.
Now I want a red crimson cloak that I can parade around in.

I definitely recommend watching this movie! The best part about this movie! It was hardly censored at all !!

Just watch this movie for yourself and you’ll realize that it looks damn cool !!
