    300 is a movie blood-drunk on its own artful excess. Guys of all ages and sexes won't be able to resist it. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Significantly, this hyper-stylization of 300 is limited to its visuals. The performances are played straight, and this combination -- straight performances and stylized visuals -- produces an uncanny effect. show more

    The action epic 300 is so overblown, overheated and over the top that on some level, it's fun to get caught up in the operatic dizziness of it. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    300 presents a dual clash of civilizations. An action adventure that pits thousands of Persians against 300 brave Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae, it also pits millions of fans of brainless violence against a gallant band, or so I choose to think of us, who still expect movies to contain detectable traces of humanity. show more

    300 is "Gladiator" for the gamer set. show more

    It's impossible not to be moved by its nearly nonstop visual assault. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    In epic battle scenes where he combines breathtaking and fluid choreography, gorgeous 3-D drawings and hundreds of visual effects, director Zack Snyder puts onscreen the seemingly impossible heroism and gore of which Homer sang in "The Iliad." show more

    It may not be by-the-book history -- a relative term in any event, when discussing the ancients whose worldview embraced men, gods and monsters -- but what a spectacle! show more

    300 may not offer masterful storytelling in a conventional sense, but it's hard to beat as a spectacle and that makes it worthwhile viewing for all but the most squeamish of potential audience members. show more

    This was not a movie, it's a video game, and all you fools who do not know movies fell for it like the same fools who shop for cheap things on E BAY

    A visual masterpiece that is compelling and inspiring. Director Zach Snyder has taken one of the most beloved graphic novels of all time and created a movie that is almost like reading the novel itself. The acting is awesome and the action is swift and relentless. Very good film.

    Definitely a guy's flick... but then my girlfriend is probably the exception to the rule since she also enjoyed watching this flick with me. A high body count, lots of snarling, grunting and man noise with enough sex, T&A and muscularity for both of us. A very stylized and graphic action flick.

    Can this be made for IMAX in 3D?What a testosterone fest that also has moments that women enjoy too!

    Based upon acting, story line, special effects and sound, this was the best movie that I have ever seen.

    Paul Potts is amazing... his voice reaches into the soul and enchants the listenerI am waiting for his next album. I just hope that whoever is handling his career knows enough to give this gentle man some breathing space
