The movie 300 is truly a powerful film. I got to see it on opening night with friends in a packed house. If you cannot stomach violence, don’t see it. There’s lots of skin with chiseled warriors dismembering and slashing in most scenes. However, the visual effects used in the story-telling were stunning, even though I think a couple of the scenes were obscene to say the least. The full history behind the film is equally interesting as the film. Apparently, according to a History Channel special entitled The Last Stand of the 300, the navy of Greece was what really saved the day. This was indeed hinted in the film, at least. Here is post from Ethos blog on this film: A History Lesson?
