    damn this movie got so much testosterone. facts from watching 300.
    1. all spartan men have 8packs
    2. only spartan women give birth to real men
    3. persians are freaks
    4. persian king is an 8ft tall fag

    great movie, there's all kind of action in there. bunch of snappy one-liners. very worth it.

    I saw it last night and really enjoyed it, the king is great in it and makes the whole movie imo. Good flick with great action, very gory 9/10.

    -Edit-
    Its based on the comic of 300 too thats why the persians are uber weird lookin (specially the immortals).

    Saw a preview on TV

    "LAY DOWN YOU WEAPONS"
    "COME AND GET THEM"

    Then they probably said the equivalent of, "Oh snap we got served"

    here's a fact I learned from 300: I'm sick of cliche overdone bullet motion matrix crap

    lol yuyuyup its not like the king slowed down time and started back flipping down hell's gate! The slow down in the film is purely for the viewer to see and appriciate the brutally efficient kills pulled off by the king over and over again.
    Its not like it gave him an advantage LOL

    Hey, Frank Miller, what more is there to say right?

    what Thug4L1f3 said. the bullet time was only a very minute portion of the movie after that i dont recall anymore bullet time.

    in frank millers world, bad guys are deformed and odd looking

    propoganda against iran? just go and enjoy the movie man. this movie doesnt want you to think too much.

    If you think that the majority of Americans draw some sort of connection between Persia and Iran, you're wrong.

    Do a search for the REAL version of the battle and it seems like most of it is as close as it gets as poss. Apart from the english language! Cracking film all the same, well worth a watch [​IMG]

    You're wrong, but that's not a big deal. We're not watching a documentary. Just because they included that bit about using your shield to protect the guy next to you doesn't mean that everything else is something you're going to want to put on your next history exam.

    it's a movie about a group of 300 spartans standing against a huge invading army, it's by the same guy who wrote the graphic novel sin city, and he's done alot of work on other comics as well...

    [not serious]Bah, the movie is full of hateful lies. I only believe in the version told by Number One in Alan Ford.[/not serious]
    No, wait. I'm serious about prefering Number One's version. [​IMG]

    hateful lies against who? the persians? no one cares, that kind of persia is gone... whether it's acurate or not has no bearing whether it's a good movie or not.

    Yes it's a movie inspired by a comic BUT Read some history books!
