300 movie review
Starring: Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, Dominic West
One of the best parts of the movie is what all the actors went through to get into shape to play the Spartans. The other best part is the history lesson you get. You are visually able to see what it was like to fight man-to-man wars. It's amazing how wars were fought then. We all know the stories, but it's different to actually see it.
While 300 came so highly recommended to us, I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed. If the story is true, then it's a great history lesson. I knew going into the movie that it was going to be violent. But, I was told that it's a "comic strip" violence and isn't as intense that way. Well, I disagree with that. There were several scenes that were grotesquely violent. So if you're not into that, I don't think I can recommend the movie to you.
So, check out 300 if you're not grossed out by lots of violence and you're really into war. I guess for me it was more of a take it or leave it movie. I hope you enjoy it though!
