This is a review for 300 (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD].

If Zack Snyder hadn't messed up by insisting on Gerard Butler hamming his scenes up (so it would exactly match the images of his character, Leonidas, from Frank Miller's graphic novel) I seriously think Mr. Butler would have been in the running for a best actor Oscar for his performance. His death scene, especially, where he laments, "My Queen! My wife... my love!" is truly heartrending.

I love the way this film was shot (mostly green screen) as it gives it an otherworldly look that is spot on as the tale is being told by a survivor and most eyewitnesses tend to exaggerate or misinterpret what they have seen.

This film is a billion times better than the prequel/sequel.

The extras disc is excellent.

Film ratio is 2.40:1. Audio is DD 5.1. Both are very good.

If you're offended by extreme violence/gore/language/nudity, this film isn't for you. However, if you like epic films like Ben-Hur, Spartacus, Gladiator, Troy, Kingdom Of Heaven, then you'll love this.

#1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWERon 17 June 2011
Just finished watching this for the first time on blu ray and loved it! The picture quality was excellent (of course) the pit Leonides kicked the bloke down at the beginning seemed deeper than the dvd one! The background action going on in the battle sequences can be seen more clearly as can the creatures from the four corners of the earth that seem to come to life on blu ray. Colours are vibrant and audio excellent if you've got some decent speakers. It's CGI all the way here which I like personally.

There's quite a few interesting extras on here such as three deleted scenes, how they trained the actors, interviews with the main actors, behind the scenes webisodes and much more! So yes this is a really good disc as well as a great movie. Very enjoyable.

Dialogue and acting both shocking, but then again I don't suppose you would watch it for both of those! Second time of watching (and will definitely be the last!).

Brutal film I do not recommend it for younger viewers. DVD and case were in great condition with no scratches or faults

Great training video should you meet 100 thousand Persians on the beach in Greece.
