4 out of 10 If you're a Gladiator and Braveheart fan...
Wayne from Kildare, 05 Dec 2007
This is an epic film with unrelenting action from word "go". Admittedly not on the same level as Gladiator or Braveheart, but then it didn't have the same budget either. The story of the Spartans is one we all learned from a very early age at school and thank God they have finally done it justice on screen. An excellent depiction of the courage and strength these guys had, fighting to the death in incredible adversity. I don't want to over-hype it though because you may end up expecting too much

0.5 out of 10 300 seconds...
Ginger from Dublin, 31 Mar 2008
Yes, 300 seconds was about as long as I watched this. Just couldn't get into the spirit of it, which was weird because I thought I might like it when I saw the trailers. It's not my usual type of film, but neither was Sin City & I ended up loving that, so thought I would like this. A minute or 2 in, I just couldn't cope with the overall look of it & tried several more times to watch, but just wasn't feelin the vibe. I'm sure it's great if you're in a very particular mood, but not for everyone.

5 out of 10 Truly amazing
Tom from Wicklow, 05 Oct 2007
Looking for a history lesson? Well this isnt it. Sure the story is there but this is a true masterpeice on how to convert a comic into a movie. It is filled with set scenes & imagery & is extremely enjoyable. I would warn you that it is very violent & gory in places but is done with a adult comic veneer over it. The acting is good (never realised the Spartans all talked like the scots!) & indeed i spotted Bormir from LOTR fame among them. If you like the battles from LOTR, this is for you!A+

0 out of 10 Rubbish.
Caroline from Laois, 24 Apr 2008
Over rated. Over done. Over in 5 mins had I not believed the hype and watched it all. Watched it with himself. We both waited for ages to see this and wasted a whole night watching this utter scutter when we could have been watching Mega Machines on Discovery. Honest to God, I loved the ad for it, thought is would be the Bee's Knees, but it was more like the slug's ass - slow, dull and useless... Since when did spartan leaders have Scottish accents??? Did I say it was rubbish yet? Rot!

4 out of 10 300
James from Limerick, 02 Dec 2008
Spartan few kick some Persian butt in a comic-book re-telling of the Battle of Thermopylae. Warning, testosterone will ooze from your TV in a fashion that would shame Russell Crowe. Fanciful and loose with the facts, but if this is what it takes to keep this important war against the barbarian hordes in the collective consiousness in these difficult times, then bring on the sequel. Best bits? Queen Gorgo's rousing speech, and Leonidas relieving Xerxes of one of his ears.

What's it about....
Based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley, 300 takes over the screen like an invading horde. With all the gushing blood of a horror movie and the scope of a classic epic, the second film from Zack Snyder (who helmed the 2004 remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD) is an impressive visual spectacle. Gerard Butler (THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA) plays Leonidas, the king of ancient Sparta. The city is famous for its warrior philosophy, and Leonidas won't kneel to the demands...
