King Leonidas: You bring the crowns and heads of conquered kings to my city steps. You insult my queen. You threaten my people with slavery and death! Oh, I've chosen my words carefully, Persian. Perhaps you should have done the same!
Messenger: This is blasphemy! This is madness!
King Leonidas: Madness...?
King Leonidas: This is Sparta!
This is a movie about a legendary battle about a few free men who stood against a tyrant and his monstrous army, a movie about few who stood against many, filled with really awesome battle sequences.This is a movie that was made to entertain plain and simple, there is nothing artsy about this movie as its makers (with Zack Snyder as director) going for a very graphic live-action movie instead. And it did so excellently!
What 300 lacks in story, it more than makes up for it in its action scenes and its characters with Gerard Butler giving a really awesome performance as the adrenaline pumped King Leonidas, King of Sparta; and Rodrigo Santoro as the "god" King Xerxes, King of Persia.
This is a movie with dazzling action scenes and equipped with quip one liners through out. A real pop-corn movie.
