300King Leonidas, who leads 300 Spartans into battle against the Persian 'god-King' Xerxes and his invading army of more than 300,000 soldiers. As the battle rages, Queen Gorgo attempts to rally support in Sparta for her husband. The Spartan defeat was not the one expected, as a local shepherd, named Ephialtes, defected to the Persians and informed Xerxes of a separate path through Thermopylae, which the Persians could use to outflank the Greeks.

Critic Reviews of "300"Chicago Sun-TimesAugust 08, 2008
300 has one-dimensional caricatures who talk like professional wrestlers plugging their next feud.New YorkerMarch 26, 2007
A muscle-magazine fantasy crossed with a video game and an Army recruiting film.New York ObserverMarch 21, 2007
300 was as pathetically puerile as I had expected.Time OutMarch 17, 2007
It might have been one of the great all-time mad, bad movies but for one thing - it's just sooo boring.AV ClubMarch 10, 2007
Part of the fascination of the Thermopylae story is that it really happened, and it helped define real heroism. There's nothing remotely like reality to be had in this film.Time OutMarch 10, 2007
As to this pumped-up spectacle's other aims, it's anybody's guess: selling gladiatorial chest-beating as beefcake erotica? Combining a movie and its own video-game spin-off into one package? Being both a dessert topping and a floor wax?Jerusalem PostMarch 22, 2016
There is an intelligent movie to be made about Spartan warrior culture, but 300 is not it. It is a fun ride, though, as long as you don't see it on a full stomach.Cinemaphile.orgSeptember 13, 2013
Our instinctual desire to sneer at the implausibility of the story is stalled by a sense of ambition that seems unmatched even by the standards of the Hollywood assembly line.TheShiznit.co.ukNovember 03, 2012
So manly it makes Troy look like a Mary-Kate and Ashley adventure.Time Out ChicagoJuly 09, 2012
Wallowing in the same adolescent nihilism as his Sin City, this adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel suffers from a similar lack of momentum.Future Movies UKJuly 06, 2010
As the first blockbuster of the year, 300 sets the bar high enough, and is enjoyably silly.Digital SpyJuly 06, 2010
Despite a cracking central premise and outstanding visuals, 300 ultimately leaves you feeling more gutted than some of the disemboweled soldiers on display throughout the movie.
