Unfortunately, I saw 300 on the small screen – a very small screen with a very bad resolution, sitting in a very uncomfortable position.
Yet. I was impressed and loved every minute of it. I hardly think of it as any propaganda. It’s a fun war movie.
Doug does amazing justice when he writes a review.
The Greeks didn’t go into battle bare chested for example, no matter how cool it looked. And no, the Persians didn’t have giant war elephants, ogres, or war rhinoceroses…sheesh, it felt like they had spliced in shots from The Lord of the Rings in places.
I wish I could write that! I sincerely recommend reading his post.
