300 is an absolutely terrific movie. the attitude, the valour the spartans display send a chill down my spine. so much to keep their honour. they challenged and even demured a person who projected himself as god. i think they were bogged down by the wrong priests who just had no respect for these warriors. my personal favorite line in the movie when the king says : SPARTANS NEVER RETREAT!!!!!!!!!!. the greatest sequence when the king as a young lad fights the beast and also , when he kicks the intruder into the well..BEOWULF IS NOT MYTHOLOGICAL IT IS NEITHER THAT CREATIVE SOME ANIMATION IT IS ABOUT A PERSON. NOT AN ERA...

My friend just saw Beowulf and said it was even more violent than '300'. I have not seen it yet. I did enjoy '300', not because it was violent. I thought the director did a nice job of picking actors for the characters as well as following the story fairly well. I wish Leonidas would have found his mark with that spear he launched at Xerxes toward the end, but that would have changed the story. Had to keep him alive to get defeated by the rest of the worthy spartan warriors, when the pompous fool kept invading Greece. At least he clipped his pampered cheek and ripped out a piercing + killed 20,000+ Persians with 300 Spartans and some other Grecians who helped out.
