Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Three DVD collection is loaded with special features and "making-of" segments about all aspects of this ground-breaking film. Also includes a 52-page art/photo book and other collectibles.

Additional Features

The 300 Limited Collector's Edition combines the widescreen two-disc special edition with a new third disc, which has a digital copy of the film (download code expires 11/18/09) and a 30-minute documentary "To the Hot Gates: A Legend Retold." The documentary has interviews with director Zack Snyder and his crew plus contributions from creator Frank Miller and actors Gerard Butler and Lena Headey and discusses the adaptation of the graphic novel to film, the creatures and special effects, the actors' training regimen, and Queen Gorgo. The documentary is in widescreen but not enhanced for widescreen TVs (ironically, neither is the Blu-ray ad), which follows the pattern of most of the original DVDs' bonus features (showing its vintage, disc 2 begins with a joint promotion for Blu-ray and HD DVD). If you already have the two-disc DVD, the Blu-ray, or the HD DVD, the non-DVD elements of this set might be the bigger draw: an attractive hardcover book that houses the discs and shows off art from the film as well as from the graphic novel (often comparing the two presentations side by side), six promotional postcards, and a lucite display with a lenticular image of Butler. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars 300: Inspiring Tale Magnificently Told March 11, 2007
A more intense shot of testosterone you will not find in any film. Equal parts bravado, guts and glory, "300" is simply the most exciting film to come out this year - or in several. Criticized for its violence and gore, fans of Miller's graphic novels will find that violence and gore to be as beautifully depicted on the screen as in the print version. A highly hyped CGI affair the cast could easily have been overcome by the sheer impressiveness of the physical production. To his credit director Zack Snyder is blessed with and uses a cast every bit equal to the challenge of competing with Miller's dark fantastic take of the Spartan's greatest story.

Gerard Butler (Phantom of the Opera, Dear Frankie, etc.) adds yet another impressive and wildly different character to his arsenal of screen roles. As Leonidas, King of Sparta, Butler is, from his pigtail to his muscled, sandled feet, every inch a king; a true leader of men. His passion and intensity is matched by a splendid performance by Lena Headey as his wife, Queen Gorgo. Though a dutiful wife and a woman in an age when being such was near equal to slave status, she is, in her way, as bold and fearless as her husband/King. Dominic West is properly evil and oily as the traitor Theron and he's as nasty and duplicitous a villain as one can hope for. Rodrigo Santoro as a larger-than-life Xerxes is both comical and fearfully creepy equal parts drag queen and wanna be god. Behind all the glitzy piercings and bling, he is little more than self-inflated egotistical child.

While there is blood and gore aplenty, the film also happens to be emotionally satisfying and I found myself with tears welling up in my eyes more than a few times, as well as wanting to raise my fist in the air along with the jacked-up Spartans!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Sparta! June 2, 2007
Format:HD DVD
Frank Miller adaptations are on a roll. First we got "Sin City," and now we have the story of three hundred Spartans who repelled a massive invasion.

And the adaptation of "300" is a stunning one -- literally stunning, since it bombards the viewer with larger-than-life characters, smashing visuals and tight direction. It goes a bit too fast for its own good, but it's a truly epic film that takes the historical war movie to another level -- all the more so because it actually happened.

As the introduction tells us, the Spartans were the ultimate warrior people. Babies were inspected for weakness or faults, and killed if they had any; as they were growing up, they were taught and toughened by a savage regimen. Their only true hope was to "die beautifully" for their land.

A Persian messenger arrives, telling King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) that the god-king Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) wants the Spartans to bow to him. Leonidas' response: shove the Persians into a pit. But before he can go to war, he must consult the corrupt priesthood of Ephors and their beautiful Oracle. She predicts that Sparta will fall and the gods forbid war at the approach of the Carneaian festival -- courtesy of a hefty bribe from a Spartan traitor.

So Leonidas takes out three hundred of his best men, along with their nervy Arcadian allies, and begin trouncing the Persians. But they are being sabotaged, both by a hunchbacked outcast and by a treacherous councilor, whom Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) is battling. And so at Thermopylae, Leonidas prepares for a final battle against the monstrous Persian Army -- knowing that their story of freedom will live on.

As a guy, if this film doesn't get your blood churning and your testosterone pumped up to a deliriously critical level, well, you're either dead inside or you're a Tibetan monk with complete mastery over your cardiovascular and hormonal systems. 300 is a man's man's man's flick and is a muscular love poem which celebrates the ideals of honor, courage, sacrifice, and standing up for your beliefs. Righteous stuff.

Not being much of a history buff, the only famous last stands I can instantly come up with are the Battles of the Alamo, of the Little Big Horn, and of Thermopylae (I guess I could also throw in Game 7 between the Lakers and the Blazers, 2000). Of these, the legendary Battle of Thermopylae is the most dramatic and is the mother of all last stands. I first heard about the Battle of Thermopylae (480BC) and the 300 Spartans way back when I was in high school, and I thought it a nifty story from the very first. A few years ago, I read Frank Miller's graphic novel 300 and enjoyed it tremendously, not caring at all that he altered things here and there as he opted instead to focus on the story's artistry, its sense of grandeur, and its mythological aspects. The filmmakers, make no mistake, take their cue from Mr. Miller. Remnants of historical facts are still somewhat represented under the film's glossy veneer but with some tweaking. You just have to see past the somewhat ridiculous parade of grotesque LORD OF THE RINGS-like creatures which Xerxes and director Zack Snyder send out.

What a heroic story. It's even more inspiring because it is true. We don't have many heroes like those guys in modern times. It's a great movie and Gerard is such a heart-throb.

As soon as HD-DVD was rendered defunct, I jumped aboard the Blu Ray wagon.

At first I found the prospect of replacing my library quite demoralizing, but... Read More

DRM (digital rights management) is just another worthless attempt at preventing casual copying which only inconveniences and/or creates problems for honest people.
