Its a rubbish movie. It shows child abuse in a positive light. Just check the seen where young boys are tortured. The Spartans can actually be held responsible for destruction of Greek democracy. They destroyed Athens and its democracy. Sparta was a region in Greek where young boys where inducted into military training. They knew only to fight, because all the other job's where done by slaves Helots who where abused. Its not Sparta but Athens which helped preserve the culture of western civilization, in fact Athens gave democracy to the world and of course great greek scholars. As far as Leonidas in 300 is concerned, he resembles Osama, speaks like Osama (just plain hard talking, with of course some borrowed verses of modern day greek regiments motto's). Also, the behavior of the spartans whom the director wants to show as very positive, resembles that of Taliban. Apart from these it has generous dose of gore, blood spraying, heads flying like a ball.... yucky!

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..WELL DONE!!!!!!!!!!

300 is an incredible movie that makes the case for the Greeks as the protectors and saviors of what became the Western World. The movie itself was well done and a reasonably good depiction of the story and the graphic novel it was based on.
