The epic graphic novel by Frank Miller (Sin City) assaults the screen with the blood, thunder and awe of its ferocious visual style faithfully recreated in an intense blend of live-action and CGI animation. Retelling the ancient Battle of Thermopylae, it depicts the titanic clash in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his massive Persian army. Experience history at swordpoint. And moviemaking with a cutting edge.
Spartans, prepare for glory!. Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, "300" is very loosely based the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae, where the King of Sparta led his army against the advancing Persians; the battle is said to have inspired all of Greece to band together against the Persians, and helped usher in the world's first democracy.. 300 Wiki
This is one of my favorite movies of all time, I still remember watching this at the theatre and leaving mesmerized.
A whole crap to show a lie
I wish they can make more movies like this this movie was the best movies I’ve ever seen in my life
What languages do you have in subtitles?
Awesome move.... one of the best ancient history action of all time!
Turned it off after 20 minutes with 2 teenage boys in the room. I may as well have thrown $4 down the toilet.
This is a classic of our times! Storytelling, action sequences, Xerxes facial jewelry and all, can't wait to show this to my son someday (then set him out in nature to fend for himself).
Don't get me wrong I have heard how great this movie is. However, when I rented it, it disappeared a few minutes later. I had 24 hours to watch it and wasn't ever able to retrieve it within that time range. Also, I tried Apple live chat multiple times. It kept saying "Estimated time wait: 2min". I waited once for nearly 10-15 minutes and decided not to wait more.
I will never get bored of this movie
That 300 Spartans actually DID die holding off the Persian army is a historical fact. Their brave action may have saved western civilization in hindsight. So in a way, this movie is a homage to those brave men. The acting, intrigues, battle-scenes, and atmosphere are top notch. Hollywood did take liberties to spice things up, but to me, that just amps the movie. And it made me read up on ancient Sparta and get smart about Greek history in general. Why don’t history teachers show this movie before they dive into ancient history? This would get the students attention.
Too much digital going on though...
This movie has only a PG rating? It has explicit sex scenes, nudity & was controversial upon it's theatre release due to it's explicit & excessive violence. It's still a well made, amazingly acted true story of honor & sacrifice by director Zack Snyder that will probably resound for years to come. BUT the film makers were actually worried they may not be able to edit it to an R-rating. So how did iTunes come up with their PG rating? (not even 14A).
If you arent a real history stickler andyou dont mind a little dramatic license youll love this action pack asthetically pleasing beast of a movie
I have always been a Zack Snyder fan and I thought this was an excellent movie. I might not recommend showing it to kids on Friday nights since it is very bloody, but adults will find it very entertaining. The stunts were jaw dropping, the battles were Lord of the Rings esque, and Gerard Butler is one awesome hero (and he didn't even need flashy jumpsuits like Superman or something).
Do you need Internet to watch a movie after you rent it?
I really love it
The best movie ever if you like action and adventure and killing battles you'll love this bloody action movie
I loved this action packed film were 300 men fight in blood and honour FOR SPARTA!!!!!
We will remember the brave and stand up for the week and sheik down the Evil

One of the best movies I have ever seen !!
This is an awesome movie people complain that it's not historically accurate but ITS A MOVIE not a documentary
One of the greatest movies of all time. Brilliant and powerful. The superb acting and directing make this one legendary story. To recieve any other rating than 5 stars is blasphemy.
Ittt wassss awesomeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pants. Capes. Muscles. Need I say more?
Yo ubersee what's the book called is it actually called 300?
apple are ....ing robbing people like me and you, this movie cost £3.00 at the local asda along withe alot of the other titles in apple store. so why is they charge us twice as much. if anything it should be cheap.
If you didn't like the book you wont be reading this If you don't know the book, read it instead. If you ignore the blatant racism, silly dialogue and idiotic political undercurrent it doesn't even look as good as reported elsewhere. No sense of space or location in the battle scenes which are of course the centrepiece of this. You always feel the stage and the bluescreen.
Why is it on every review page people are moaning about the prices giving the film lower ratings! You are reviewing the film not apples financial failings, I agree a good film with some historical accuracy, butler plays his part very well
This is madness! Madness? (silence) this IS SSPPAARRTTAA!!! (SMACK)
Persian:our arrows will blot out the Sun !! Spartan:then we will fight in the shade!! PWND OR WHAT!! What a come-back!
Great movie with some of the best fighting scenes i have seen, with a great sountrack to help portray the laddish mood build up by the 300 spartans as they face an army of millions of persions and how they defended the hot gates until betrayedd by 1 of their own. A true lad film filled with action and drama up to the credits though the cost is a little too high and itunes deffinately need to sort out movie costs! As a physicall version is a lot cheeper to own though personally i prefer the itunes versions! but all in all a great film!
Great film :)!xxx
Absolutely amazing movie. The ABs should watch this to get themselves fired up.
Well worth watching
