"300 reasons to watch!"
5 stars"

Zach Snyder follows up his suprisingly entertaining re-make of Romero's Zombie-fest ‘Dawn of the Dead’ with this stunning adaptation of George Miller's graphic novel, ‘300.’ The tale of the legendary 300 Spartan warriors who stood alone to defend Sparta from the barbarian hordes who threatened their homeland, ‘300’ utilizes the studio and techniques created by Robert Rodriguez for his film version of Frank Miller's graphic novel ‘Sin City.’ As though Miller's highly stylized visuals have leapt to life, the screen burns with vivid colour and imagery. It's like an ancient ‘prequel’ of sorts to ‘Sin City’ – hard boiled, violent, mysoginist and cruel. Gerard Butler stomps, snarls and smashes scenery in a marvellous performance that could so easily slip into silly camp parody – yet he remains sincere and even sympathetic as the warrior king holding back the hordes against insurmountable odds. Violent in a totally over-the-top manner, just as ‘Sin City’, this is comic book boy's own battling brought up to the level of pop art. Beautiful to look at, bruising to behold. Think Ridley Scott's ‘Gladiator’ meets Rodriguez's ‘Sin City’ by way of an early ‘Dirty Harry’ and you can't go wrong. And it's not just one for the boys (who may find all those half-naked bronzed and oiled muscle-men a little too homoerotic!) – women will love it too, as it accurately portrays the strong Spartan women who, in the warrior culture, are portrayed as in many ways equal to and as strong as their menfolk. ‘300’ is great over-the-top cinema as spectacle. Like ‘Ben Hur’ on acid! Adz

Description

What does it mean to turn one of the great graphic novels of our time into a major motion picture?

In 1998, Frank Miller shook the comics world with his groundbreaking series 300. Marking Miller's first collaboration with watercolor artist Lynn Varley (Ronin, The Dark Knight Returns) in over a decade, 300 was a gritty reimagining of a battle in which three hundred Spartan soldiers fought to hold back the entire Persian army. The series won three Eisner Awards, including Best Limited Series, Best Writer/Artist (Miller), and Best Colorist (Varley).

Based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller (Sin City), 300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae, in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army.
