I took my family ( minus my wife-sorry hon! ) to see ” 300 “, and while my daughter really did not care for it, nor my Mom ( which pretty much means my wife would not have liked it either ) my daughter’s boyfriend Brett and I enjoyed it and my friend and sometime partner Chris liked the gore of the movie.
The acting in the movie was just excellent and actor Gerard Butler as king Leonidas was just marvelous.
The cinematography and special effects of the film were reminiscent of the Lord of the Rings films, but by and far the battle scenes in this movie far outshines anything I have seen on film in recent years. But I was able to walk away from this movie with something more than just an enjoyable evening at the movies….
there was in my own personal view, a very subtle statement that this film makes that is relevent ( if you happen to be a conservative ) to todays political climate and makes me wonder if there wasn’t just a little conspiracy as to the timing of this films release…
” Spartans never retreat, never surrender ” and they are ” Freemen “, who fight for their people’s ” Freedom !”
300 Spartans, stand their ground, stand beside their King, against what can only be viewed as ” Insurmountable Odds ” in the adversary King’s army of over a million persian warriors from different empires that he has conquered, and has taken control of.
I walked away from this film, with more than just a little bit of respect for all warriors, past and present, who stand by their ideals and their convictions, whether right or wrong!
It takes alot of courage to do that!
Go see Frank Miller and Warner Brothers film release, ” 300 “, and see if you don’t come away with a little more respect for those who stand by their convictions and ideals, no matter what the consequence.
