Not sure what is worst the filming or script.


Filming annoyed me more.


1) This movie whether it was morning, noon or evening all looked the
same - twilight. It seemed to be in a constant twilight setting. Now
Greece is a beautiful country with nice countryside. One would never
know it seeing this movie. One would think sun never shines bright, land
is a blah color and looks desolate.


This drove me up a wall.


2) Filming of the battle scenes. LOTR:Two Towers, LOTR: ROTK and Saving
Private Ryan showed how to film a battle scene. The filming was almost
too close up and not really taking a full-scope of battle.


Oh even Spartacus almost 50 years ago had better battle scenes - granted
not bloody like in 300.


Also does blood really gush out like droplettes or in a gush? Hacking
off an arm and up like rain - lot of drops of blood.


3) Script: Did George Bush write the script? Lines like "come back with
your shirld or on the shield", "we will not surrender" "we will not
retreat" and my favorite "price of freedom is blood".


Most of the lines by the King Leonidis and his wife seemed like talking
points by the RNC more then natural dialogue.


4) Another thing about the filming. It seemed like every skin blemish
was accentuated. Leno Headley came across as rather unattractive. Nice
figure but with the filming rather unattractive.


5) Did the ancient Persians really have the technology to graft weapons
and skin together to create an arm that is an ax? In the execution scene
the technology used seemed way too advanced. Also did they really
possess the technology to make grenades - granted primative ones but
still grenades.


6) The battle scenes also seemed like a videogame. First wave - practice
with the weakest enemies, second wave better enemies, next a miniboss
battle with that giant mutant, then a minigame of spear against giant
rhino, second minigame of shoving elephants off a cliff, back to
battling masked enemies. Finally ending boss battle.


I know this was a Frank Miller story and I have not read 300 nor did I
read his graphic novel Sin City. The thing is I loved the movie Sin City
- the dialogue was interesting, it was gritty and it was an innercity
locale and rundown sections.
It worked in Sin City. Now you take a land of ancient Greece and the
grittiness of the locale just seems idiotic and doesn't work.


If this movie took place in a post Nuke Greece then the filming would
have been appropriate and on screen good but not about 3000 years ago.
Maybe it worked in the graphic novel but not on film.


Horrible movie. A 1 out of 10. This needs to be nominated as one of the
worst movies of 2007 - well at least for big budget movies.

I'm gonna have to disagree with you on the whole worst movie idea... I wouldn't say that 300 is the best movie that I have ever seen, but I found it entertaining, definitely not a waste of money.

When I look at a movie, personally, I don't really think outside of the movie too much, like how 300 doesn't truly depict the historical facts of the battles. Yeah, there's no real technology to fuse someone's arms to swords, or whatever those things were. But the whole point of the movie was to make it as gritty and bloody, not realistic. And when it comes to that, I think it succeeded. I personally liked the fight scenes as well, it made it seem more close up, which made it feel more like I was in on the action.

As for the overall quality... no, it's not the best. I'm sure that there's plenty of ways to improve it. but as a movie, based on entertainment level while I was watching it, I'd say it was pretty good.

This was an artistic vision from a graphic novel. Not an actual event movie. If you read the comic book first, you would have realized that what the director was doing WAS trying to capture the graphic novel feel.

The reason the film looked all the "same" was because the director was also trying to capture the desolate feel. It's an army of 300 vs a massive army.

Spartacus was just a focus on one man. This movie has a focus on 300 soldiers. The filming of the battle was fine.

Yes blood can squirt out like that. You have things called veins and a heart that pumps blood all through out your body. When there is no limb attached to that part, your heart is still pumping blood into the air.

This movie is based on a comic book and a man's vision on what he though might have or could have occurred.

When you are in the war, you are going to send your grunts out to do the dirty work and not tire out your elite army.
