I thought the movie was great. The perfect use of slowed motion made the fight scenes some of the best. cant think of a single other movie where you could actually see the form to such exquisite detail. I think the rhino scene was great, you knew exactly how it was gonna unfold.. but was still fantastic

300 - in Lego.

Though it's in Chinese, the pics pretty much tells the story if you've seen the movie. More or less sums up the movie in less than 5 minutes.

(The only change in this Lego version is that the Spartans hope to go on an Onsen trip with all the hot Valkyries at the "Hot Gates", the only problem is that the Persians are blocking the way. )

The funny thing is, the ancient Persians aren't really related to modern Persians (like the Iranians).

This movie is the best especially the parts it went slow motion in but what i can't quite understand is why did they stay? Wouldn't it be smart to go back and fight with more power?

Why did who stay? The Persians or the Spartans?

The Persians brought several million men and didn't have any more power to bring. More power was not the problem. As for the Spartans, they wouldn't have been allowed to bring more men so retreat equalled defeat. Neither side could go back and bring more power.

Going back for reinforcements when they realized they were surrounded is about as illogical as showing up with 300 men in the first place. So that part makes sense to me. You just have to remember that spartans kick lots of ass.


SPARTANS DON'T RETREAT! *starts kicking people into pits*



The movie was alright. I still like something like Life Aquatic much better ... but for a massive battle movie it was entertaining. Sure beats lord of the rings where you have to wait 2 hours to get that sort of action.

Hmm....I thought the reason they didn't went back and brought in reinforcements was the reason why they only left with 300 spartans right at the start of the story? Its not that Leonidas don't wanna bring more troops...its just that he can't. Every matter that concern Greek must first went through oracle of some sort, and in the case of the movie, the oracle (plus the old perverted geeks) forbide Leonidas from going into battle with the Persians. But Leonidas didn't give up and decided to bring along with him 300 of the finest Spartans. Hope that solves your doubt. Btw, you can take a look at wikipedia's article on 300 and the Battle of Thermopylae. Its pretty enriching.

Btw, the only thing that puzzled me was why didn't Leonidas aimed the spear right at Xerxes's heart? I know its very difficult to aim it from that distance but from what I read from wiki, the comic mentioned that Leonidas's goal was to show the people that Xerxes isn't a "God" and that he bleeds.

Actually, the real reason they didn't go back for more troops was because of political reasons not shown in the movie (it would ruin the cinematic drama).

The real reason was that the leaders of Sparta were worried that the helots (a race of slaves conquered by the Spartans a long time ago) would rebel if they sent too large a force to combat the Persians. In reality, the real numbers were closer to 300,000 men on the Persian side and about 9,000 men for the Spartans. 9,000 was the approx total number of men in the Spartan army, not the force sent to Thermopylae. The number 300 was accurate, though the "10,000" Spartan troops at the end of the movie was an exaggerated number to make it seem a bit more dramatic.

Actually, the 300 Spartans, before they all died, were able to take down an incredible number of men with them, a whopping 60,000! Thats about 200 Persian soldiers apiece, if you can imagine that. Their phalanx tactics served them well, though in real life they would NEVER have broken battle lines to engage the Persian troops individually. That would have meant instant death for everyone. The only reason they were able to fight as they did was because Spartans always fought as one perfectly cohesive unit within the phalanx, every man protecting the ones to the left and right of him.

Also, another thing the movie failed to mention was the true last part of a Spartan's training. It wsa actually to go out and kill a helot. The catch was that if they were caught, they were punished severly, but if they weren't then they were given their classic bronze armor, shield, spear (which was anywhere from 6 to 9 feet long), short sword (called a xiphos). These were known as hoplites, and their lives belonged to the state. This is how every Spartan was. Their lives must serve the state first and foremost --- anything less was unthinkable.

/rant. I think I've bored you guys enough now, but you can read up more in sites like wikipedia. (or preferably more reliable sites)

the movie was good, very manly, but too "manly". At one point in the movie I have to keep my hands away from my pants so that I don't feel wrong or people think that I am doing something down there

Just the fact you were thinking about such things makes you way more manly than you are comfortable with.

Sex scene? Really? Sorry, I find rape a big turn-off. That was one of the least "" parts of the movie for me. If you want "" then take a look at the oracle scene or any time Xerxes makes an appearance. Heck, the battle scenes were much more of a turn-on for me.

Oh god those battle scenes were hot...

Oh. Thanks for reminding me about that. For some reason it didn't leave a big impression on me. I can't really figure out why.
