Still aint gotten round to seein this movie but from what I have seen of it generally the guys love it and the girls hate it!

Hey, I'm a girl and I thought it kicked ass!

I went to see it a couple of weeks ago with my husband and some of our friends and we had a grand old time!  The only things that even remotely bothered me were the mostly mediocre acting (ie, screaming every single line of the whole movie - but hey, it's hard to find a bunch of professional bodybuilders with solid acting credentials, and they were very nice to look at!  :-D) and the two over-the-top cheeseball scenes (the love-making scene at the beginning that went on so long that even the boys I was with got tired of looking at the boobies, and the scene after dude's son died where he goes all crazy-eyed and apeshit about how he never told his son that he loved him).  Those two scenes just felt really...out-of-place and unnecessary with the rest of the movie.  I don't think I'd have missed anything if they'd been removed entirely, but that's just my opinion.

All in all, though, the movie was GORGEOUS and adrenaline-pumping and fantastic and everything I hoped it would be.  I left the theater wishing I was a Spartan.  Of course, then we came home and re-watched Sin City for the millionth time and blathered on about how awesome Frank Miller is.

I'm a girl and I really enjoyed it. The cinematography was great and the story was pretty good. The only CGI I had a problem with was the wolf. The wolf was crap compared to the rest of it.

And badassery was when the wife stabbed the guy for calling her a whore. He had it coming.

i loved the film!

everything about it was great; the CG, the acting, the story, the blood, the fight scene choreography and especially the Persian armies.

but still, i preferred Sin City to Millers last work. sin city had more depth, with the same amount of violence for the barbaric viewers out there.

hat that is probably a good idea actually.

johnny, it was incredibly theatrical and dramatic. i mean geez, the thrusts were in slow-motion.

Was that the sex scene with the king and queen or the girl with the oracles?

Queen.

The oracle's dance/whatever was pretty sweet. I like how she blended in with the smoke. I liked all the slow motion and then quick paced rhythm the dance and the fighting had. That was actually one of my favorite parts about it.

I thought this was very much a comic book, even on the big screen. I haven't read the original but you could see that a lot of the set piece kind of shots were lifts straight from panels of the comic (pushing the persians to the cliffs, the shot from behind Leonidas right at the end). The camera has the same kind of over the top graphic novel melodrama that the writing and the acting have. That's not a criticism because it really works in the right kind of film, which is this kind.

It got kind of bogged down with the politics in the middle, and it felt a little like it was there just to give the film a sheen of legitimacy rather than being a montage of fights. All in all though B+ would watch again.

PS

If you are that way inclined you could read a more detailed dissection here

The best part about this movie is the wealth Youtube parody spinoffs.
Seriously, have you even seen 300 PG?
