The retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. Facing insurmountable odds, their valor and sacrifice inspire all of Greece to unite against their Persian enemy, drawing a line in the sand for democracy.
Action Drama - This is a very violent, very bloody period action-adventure based on
the comic book/graphic novel of the same name. Despite the
historical basis, this is not a film to turn to for drama or accuracy
but merely action and stunning visuals. The target audience is
definitely older teen and young adult males.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good 300 may not offer masterful storytelling in a conventional sense, but it's hard to beat as a spectacle and that makes it worthwhile viewing for all but the most squeamish of potential audience members.
Roger EbertFull Review Excellent It is excessively, cheerfully violent -- and it is gorgeous to behold. It looks like the world's most sophisticated and expensive video game, and I mean that in a good way.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average The action epic 300 is so overblown, overheated and over the top that on some level, it's fun to get caught up in the operatic dizziness of it.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 142 moviegoers:
TEENS:OUTSTANDING OPINIONS for males and females! Highly Recommended!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:GREAT OPINIONS! Over half gave it the highest rating possible, "Fantastic." There were just a very few who rated it as average or below average. This makes it easy to Highly Recommend.
ADULTS:About three-quarters of the guys truly enjoyed "300," rating it "Very Good," or higher. Most of remaining quarter rated it average, which is a bit low but not bad. Highly Recommended!
Only a little better than half of the females truly enjoyed it. Most of the remaining half rated it as average or slightly below average. I can still recommend it, just not highly since quite a few of you will likely feel it's just an OK movie.
