Format: DVD
Brief note on the film first: a very stylised version of what the battle of thermopylae may have been like, adapted from a graphic novel and filmed with back projection to make it look as much as like the comic as possible. The result is really quite stunning, and the action and battle sequences very rousing. And bloody. The film is framed with one spartan telling others what happened, and thus what you are seeing is what they think it must have been like. This is a point lots of people seem to have missed.

As regards the dvd: this is a two disc edition, and the first disc contains a widescreen version of the film, with direct scene access, and a commentary from the director and two of the production staff.

The second disc has:

be one of three hundred: a brief bit with the director giving thanks to those who supported the project online.

A documentary about the battle. twenty five minutes long with contributions from historians and it's fascinating stuff.

A documentary about the spartans. Short but good.

Conversations with the creator of the graphic novel. Brief but interesting.

A short and generic production documentary.

a look at the making of the film in images. fascinating but moves very fast and be warned if you're eplipetic as the fast moving could give you a fit.

lots of short production documentaries, that are all quite interesting, and can be watched as one.

A great film.

And a very good package for it.

'300' is one of those movies that deserve a frequent re-visit....it's a truly magnificent spectacle.
We begin with the young 'Leonidas' having to complete a long and hard initiation/trial to be
accepted as a 'Spartan' warrior.
Years have past, 'Leonidas' a King, husband and father......
A threat looms down upon 'Sparta' as 'Persian' hoards approach the empire, self proclaimed
'God' 'Xerxes' sends messengers to 'King Leonidas' offering a peace if he and his people
submit to his will and rule, the 'Spartan' king gives his answer.
The Spartans will now have to face the invader, 'Leonidas' seeks council climbing a difficult
rock-face to consult with the 'Oracle' before going to war, he tells of his plans to march north
to the mountain pass known as 'Hot Gate' at 'Thernopylae' to face the 'Persian' army.
A select few, the finest and bravest soldiers are selected to march north with their 'King' just
'300' to face 'Xerxes' massive force.
At 'Thernopylae' the '300' repel attack after attack, even monsters from far off lands are no
match for the 'Spartan' warriors.
'Xerxes' sends in his personal guards the undefeatable 'Immortals' to crush the defenders,
seemingly even they are no match for the skills of the '300'
Meanwhile back in 'Sparta' there is a rebellion mounting against the Kings actions led by the
leading politician who imposes himself upon 'Leonidas's' wife 'Queen Gorgo' in return for
her to address the parliament.
All this while the battle rages, want-to-be 'Spartan warrior' hunchback 'Ephialtes' having been
rejected for the fight turns traitor offering 'Xerxes' help guiding the Persians to the rear of the
'Spartan' defence.

As the might of the Persian army, led by God-King Xerxes, continues on it's path for world conquest, a group of 300 Spartans, led my Kind Leonidas, march out to meet and stop them in their tracks. Adapted from Frank Miller's graphic novel, and similar to another of his works Sin City, 300 mixes live action and CGI to recreate a visually stunning tale of an epic battle!

PICTURE:
The picture quality is a mixed bag. On the one hand, the detail is exactly what you would expect from a Blu-Ray disc; close ups reveal sharp, crisp edges and the muted colours add a lot of depth to the film. On the other hand, there is a lot of noise throughout the whole film. Although noticeable at first, you are able to tune it out once the action starts happening but we felt that it added another dimension to the film and made it feel more like a looking at a moving comic.

SOUND:
The sound quality is brilliant, crisp and clear in TrueHD and makes excellent use of the surround sound system (if you have one) with the battle scenes coming alive all around you.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
The special features are good and as you would expect from a recent film with a Director's Commentary, Additional Scenes (in High Definition), Frank Miller's Vision Realised On Film Featurette (in High Definition), 300 Spartans - Fact Of Fiction Featurette (in High Definition), Who Were The Spartans? Featurette (in High Definition), A Selection Of Webisodes and a Photo Gallery.

All in all, this is a brilliant film that is amply supported by excellent picture (if you like the look of a comic), sound and special features.

Format: DVD
Well, 3 Stars, 3 stars for Great Action and entertainment, good special effects and loads of gore.
Cheesy one liners, posturing and just loads of Fun. Great set pieces and drama, I also enjoyed the build up, the story and the climax.

I liked the fighting, the lighting is fantastic as is the art and costume - The movie really is worth watching for that alone, I bought my brother a Blu Ray for his birthday as a showpiece.

This is based on the 300 Graphic Novel, and only loosely based on history, so please don't start believing it.

Minus 2 stars - as I was and have been quite annoyed at the obvious Racism expressed by the original Author of the Graphic Novel, Frank Miller, and this is evident in the Film - The 'East' is seen as uncivilised, brutal, evil, degenerate, weak, cowardly, dishonourable and treacherous, whereas the Spartans - stalwarts of The West are seen as the opposite, idealistic, and noble.
The 'Immortals' as Goblins, The King of Persia as a total weirdo and monsters in The Persian army....oh kay...

But, that's what the Graphic Novel espouses so that is naturally what the Movie does too - so I give the Novel the same marks.

As someone whose ancestors are from the old Persian Empire, I was obviously annoyed at having them all represented as nothing more than spear fodder and scum, but I quickly suppressed these foolish sentiments as it's a FILM and nothing more!

All in all, very good cinema, art direction, music and acting - yes, acting, it is SUPPOSED to be wooden and as much like the Graphic Novel as is possible, and the actors perform what they do splendidly.
