Frank Miller's 300
I’ve never read the comic, I didn’t recognise any of the cast and quite enjoyed 300 as a not very challenging film. Lots of very cool fight scenes, an acceptable amount of plot and a great ‘arrows blotting out the sun’ scene. Oh, and a war rhino.
What else is there to say? The fight scenes are bloody but not especially gory, the Spartans are portrayed with the right amount of bad-ass nature and it had a number of Sin Cityesque deformed villains in it. 7/10. Don’t think I’ll re-watch more than a fight scene or two though.
And it had a cut down (and Venom free) version of the Spider-man 3 trailer before it came on. OH YEAH! Come on Spidey!
