300 - Review

300 is a fantasy tale based on the Battle of Thermopylae in which 300 Spartans led by the fierce King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) makes a heroic stand against the overwhelming Persian army commanded by Xerxes. It depicts the titanic clash in which King Leonidas and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his massive Persian army. The story is based on Frank Miller’s novel Sin city and is directed by Zack Snyder who brings this graphic novel to life with his imaginative use of color. Aesthetically speaking, 300 is an outstanding piece of art. 300 is jam packed with plenty of bloody scenes and chopped body parts, in the same fashion of
Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill. The violence is humbled by the romantic under tones and passionate moments shared between Leoindas and Gorgo.
