Movie Review: 300 (2007)

Starring: Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, Dominic West
Director: Zack Snyder
Genre: Action
Rating: R

So that's what blood splattering sounds like. Wow, a lot of graphic (computer graphics that is) violence in this one. Gerard Butler plays Leonidas who leads his 300 Spartans against the enormous army of the Persians despite the oracles (groovy psychics) telling him it is a lost cause. A story that has been told for centuries and an event that changed history forever.

300 is a story of never retreating and never giving up. It is full of intense battle scenes and a lot of blood going every which way. They may have gone a little overboard with the CGI. Believe me when I say there must have been a lot of green scenes used in this one. That said, that doesn’t really take away from the fighting sequences or the other scenes in the movie. You are definitely rooting on the Spartans throughout the movie and are impressed with their fighting tactics.

For those who like great battle sequences. The movie will also instill the fact that you aren't doing enough situps.

"You see, old friend? I brought more soldiers than you did."
