Editorial Reviews

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

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Epic April 23, 2007
'300' is a bloody epic that combines the best of the old and new. Sporting sweeping cinematography that is partly colorized and partly bleached, the film has the effect of being a glorified version of an older film. Featuring relentless battle scenes that resemble a slow motion version of a graphic video game, '300' leaves nothing to the battle imagination. Sensuality from barebreasted women to men is sweeping red capes and loinclothes is up front to mix with the bloodbath of killer war scenes that artfully show hand-to-hand and full-scope visions of battles.

The story as many have heard is about the Spartan battle against the Persians in Thermopylae. Presented as a defensive measure against demi-God, King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), ancient warfare presents another deterrent in favor of peace before the advent of Alfred Noble's attempt to make war obsolete by inventing dynamite. Indeed, some of the best moments are when the war heroes or the narrator waxes poetic, and we get a badly needed break from the bloodbath. Sometimes the story is narrated; at others it is pronounced with great stature by King hero, Leonidas (Shakespearean actor Gerard Butler). Either way, whenever the story overrides it wins. The political developments help to deepen the story and keep us from a continual overdrive. His Queen wife, Gorgo (Lena Headey), frames the man and his mission and complements the movie as well. Furthermore, the elements of ancient religion give the movie as much dimension as the nearly 3-D blood spurs that emanate at 'Matrix'-like angles.

Thoroughly innovative, but at times overdone, '300' is a force to be reckoned with.

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.
